Honda, the Japanese automobile behemoth, has announced the launch of the top-end Amaze VX model now with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) system for the Indian market. The CVT option so far was available only in the V and S variants of the subcompact sedan car. Honda has launched the Amaze VX CVT in both diesel and petrol options that are priced at INR9.56 lakh and INR8.56 lakh respectively.




Speaking about the launch of the new model, Honda Cars India senior vice-president (sales and marketing) Rajesh Goel, claimed that the second generation of the Amaze set a benchmark in its segment with more than 20 percent customers opting for the CVT version in both diesel and petrol. The company, Goel said, is delighted to offer the Amaze VX CVT which now completes the top-end version of the popular car.




The Honda Amaze petrol is hauled by a naturally aspirated, four-cylinder 1.2-litre motor which produces 89 bhp and 110 Nm peak torque. The diesel version is fitted with a 1.5-litre motor which produces 99 bhp and 220 Nm peak torque with the manual gear system, while the CVT model outputs 78 bhp and 160 Nm peak torque.




The 2019 Honda Amaze VX CVT is loaded with features that include smartphone connectivity with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, infrared remote control, satellite-linked inbuilt turn-by-turn navigation system, rear parking camera, and steering mounted voice control switches. The high-speed warning alarm and front seatbelt reminder is standard across all models, along with antilock braking system (ABS), dual airbags, and impact-sensing door unlock as common features.




The second generation Honda Amaze was introduced in India in May last year. The car has since sold more than 85,000 units. The new Honda Amaze has contributed 46 percent to the company’s sales in the 2018-19 financial year and has been one of the bestselling cars in Honda’s portfolio.
