Honda has added a new variant to the Amaze line-up with the introduction of the SX variant. This new variant sits above the “S” variant and will be available in both Petrol and Diesel with a manual transmission.
The Honda Amaze SX gets some added safety features like Front Dual Airbags in addition to the features available in “S” variant. Additionally, ABS (Anti Locking Braking System), which comes as standard equipment in all variants of Diesel Amaze, will now be offered in newly introduced Petrol “SX” variant apart from the top grade Petrol “VX”.
This means that the Honda Amaze is now available in 12 variants namely E, EX, S, SX (New) & VX (Petrol and Diesel) and S AT & VX AT (Petrol only).
Announcing the new variant, Mr. Jnaneswar Sen, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd said, “Honda Amaze has witnessed great success in Indian market by selling more than 60,000 units ever since its launch in April 2013 and has been a game changer for Honda.
It is our constant endeavour to study customers’ needs & aspirations and introduce features that enhance the overall ownership experience. We are pleased to introduce “SX” variant of the Amaze with added safety features. The S variant has been the most popular variant in the Amaze range and with the addition of SX variant, we are confident that this new variant will appeal and bring delight to the customers seeking safety features at the volume range.”
The Honda Amaze has been a big success and was an important launch from Honda. The Amaze was first to feature the 1.5L i-DTEC diesel engine which now also powers the new Honda City. This new SX variant gives more options to the buyer and is no doubt a move to combat the Hyundai Grand i10 sedan launch in a few days. For comparisons the Amaze S petrol comes at Rs 5.87 lakh while the Amaze S diesel comes at Rs 6.87 lakh. (ex-showroom Delhi).
