Honda Brio Amaze: Thin wall Diesel engine

Discussion in 'Non FIAT Cars and two wheelers' started by Sat-Chit-ananda, Nov 21, 2012.

  1. I did short TD of Honda Amaze, which my neighbor has brought.
    Car engine is silent but for some tinny noise until 2500 RPM, i did not take the car beyond that.
    Sound insulation is less compared to my car, i have done additional dampening may due to which i felt like that.
    Car doesn't have torque like what is found on 90 HP/Linea it is even slightly less than newer 76 HP Punto. Engine doesn't have any grunt until 2500 RPM.

    Car is not a drivers car felt quite boring to drive it.Build feels like very fragile, even Swift dezire feels better.I doubt with 5 people on board car might struggle ghat roads ,where one tends use 2-3rd gear to drive lack torque may make the car to go through hard labour.

    It has slightly bigger boot than Punto, no where close to what you see in a Linea.

    I never was a fan of Dezire. But, this car from Honda has made me to comment that Dezire is much much better buy than this over hyped Diesel car.

    Didn't you go there with your Punto? :D
  5. Yes, i did go to Taj Vivanatha in my Punto:) While talking to M.R Shakeel Anjum of Honda, i mentioned that i part of TFI and he acknowledged and said he also reads some articles in TFI. We did over 100 kms of drive in Old-madras road and car #6 was the one which i was driving.

    Please share your driving experience too.
  7. Nothing much to share, it is pure city car and easy to drive in city, AT is good stress reliever in B2B traffic.
    Diesel is not where MJD stands today so Honda has few years before they could catch up.This car will not appeal to person who has driven good handling cars.
    I wish TFI get involved with FIAT's Social media engagement too.

    Fiat is busy losing market to think of such ideas

    My frnd bought an amaze and drove it in the city for 5-6 kms at night... felt it good with no turbo lag, good gear ratios, and decent low end torque, though steering and suspension cant be compared.. actually i closed the door 2-3 times thinking it didnt close, when he said the sound is like that only, its closed :D
