Why "Ho Halla" about Honda Amaze Diesel has been stopped just after the launch ?

    I didn't took TD of amaze.

    I observed car. Cons are
    Poor plastic - Fiat use better plastic
    Thin metal - Like M Wagon - R .Even metal of Bajaj Auto-rickshaw & Maruti Dzire is better.
    Door handles & knobs - Too much cheap quality.
    Weight - Just 940 kg? To get 25.5 km/lt

    I am sure oil engine of Honda will become Tata 407 after drinking highclass Indian fuel.

    Most imp point is Honda is avoiding to declare Max. Torque of engine.
    200 NM? Only 3 NM more than 75 HP GP.
    Additional 3 NM torque will be used by Ac compressor.
    Means at ac on torque of 1.5 Amaze is same as 75 HP MJD.

    Then what is use of higher 1500 cc.
    From first day Honda is misguiding Indians by only doing ga-ga of 1.5 ltr & 100 PS

    And believe me ... there is a class of nincompoops who would buy this mileage jingo ...
    I am waiting to see some of these amazes standing with their engines open after they get some Indian treatment.

    As much as i would like to endorse your statement, the brand name Honda makes me think otherwise. IMHO, Honda has a lot riding on Amaze and they wouldn't throw something at the market that would have blasted engines. A bit too far-fetched I guess.

    I drove Amaze today evening.

    Power delivery is flat.
    No turbo kick.
    Feather light steering.
    I think drought has affected on Amaze seats and they are so slim :).
    Boot lid does not have plastic cover. Body is open. Chances of rusting easily.
    Not value for Money. Top end variant touches 9.5 lakh on road.

    Also drove Chevy Sail

    Full size sedan.
    Value for money.
    Good quality interiors.
    1.3 MJD doing its great job in sail.
    First gear goes upto 40-50kmph like our Punto.
    Bit slugish.

    Another Comedy of Amaze

    ORVMs :

    1. ORVM that comes with E MT are Maruti 800 type. Earlier we were told that we wouldn't get body coloured ORVM (and can get it painted for around 3-4K- including door handles) but in reality its completely different.

    2. Honda doesn't provide for any in-car ORVM adjustment(like in Maruti/Tata) other than electric, which is available only in highest variant and costs whopping 30K! Other variants do get body coloured ORVMs but are housed in a bigger box which still need manual adjustment by lowering window glass.

    Best comedy of the year:mrgreen:

    I only like Honda CR-V in their portfolio...its an amazing car indeed !!!

    They aren't the right brand for diesels but yes, their petrol cars have been reliable since years. Lot of first hand owners swear by their "Honda City".

    I always wanted to TD Honda amaze, but when I saw it in real at 3M few days ago, I was amazed by the engine clatter sound (like traditional pump diesel engine) and the poor interior quality, also heard a lot of bad reviews, hence just dropped my plan :)

    I would suggest you to see it in flesh and blood and then decide if its worth investing 9.5 lakhs for a top end Honda Amaze. Good luck :thumbup:

    For me the best honda car in India always has been old Honda City which packed 100BHP. I literally eat, breath and sleep to have that car in my childhood days. Even now if I spot a a well maintain old Honda City, I give that a second glance.

    AMAZE is Amazingly going down day by day with its on par performance on paper now the sales guys are telling as per road conditions Amaze gives decent 15kmpl and should be happy about that from a Sedan class..
