The next-gen iteration of this vehicle is going to get a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard across the range. Honda is going to introduce a CVT automatic gearbox with the diesel derivative. This will help it stand as a tougher contender against the competition.

The front profile resembles quite a lot with the current generation City. The car comes with large headlamps and a thick chrome accent on the grille which gives it a dominating look. Towards the side, the compact sedan has a very stout look. Yet, as with other Honda cars, it looks very appealing and somewhat sporty. Towards the rear, the new Amaze gets an equally striking personality. However, the angular design of the tail-lamps might not appeal to everyone. Nevertheless, the car looks very modern and crisp from this side.
The cabin of the new Honda Amaze is a breath of fresh air. This time around, it comes with the dual-tone colour scheme of black and beige. Unlike other Honda cars, the dashboard layout appears to be on the premium side and not sporty. The steering wheel is nice and chunky. While the dashboard also comes with piano black accents which increase the cabin’s overall premium feel. The material quality seems to be on the better side, as with all Honda cars. Overall, you can feel that this car is in line with Honda’s current plan to once again establish itself as the manufacturer of premium cars in India.
