Nowadays, it is not so simple for carmakers to stay competitive. Customers have become quite demanding and pampered. They require outstanding an attractive exterior design, luxurious and modern interior, and powerful and fuel-efficient engines. Well, they don’t want to buy several models to get all that though, they need a single vehicle with all of the aforementioned qualities. The new 2016 Honda Amaze, the 4-meter sedan, will offer all that and much more. The vehicle has become quite popular among customer and therefore, the carmaker decided to update and revamp it. The 2016 model year won’t bring dramatic changes. Expect some minor refreshments of the vehicle’s look and some less significant changes inside of the cabin.
Exterior of 2016 Honda Amaze
The overall appearance and shape of the car will remain intact but there will be some visual changes that will make it more appealing. The vehicle is based on the subcompact hatchback dubbed the Brio and it shares a lot of design cues with this model. Things that set apart the Amaze from its hatchback brother are revised roof and customized curves and line. Flanking the revised grille will be a pair of newly designed headlights. Around back, a pair of newly designed taillights will be added too. That’s mostly it for the 2016 model year.
2016 Honda Amaze Interior
Some trusted sites reported that the interior design of the Amaze will be significantly modified and that this popular sedan will have a lot in common with the Mobilio, at least when it comes to their interior designs. It will benefit from brand-new, touch-screen display for the infotainment system, automatic climate control, rectangular air-con vents, dual front airbags, ABS system, and much more. The cabin will be more spacious since the wheelbase of the vehicle has been increased. The carmaker hasn’t announced what kind of materials will be covering the surfaces inside of the cabin, but some soft-touch materials and better-quality plastics will probably be offered. The carmaker announced that the cabin will be quieter than before due to the innovative technologies and sound deadening materials.
Honda Amaze 2016 Engine
The 2016 Honda Amaze will be powered by the same engine as its predecessor. Both petrol and diesel engines are in the books, both with unchanged power output. The standard engine for the refreshed Amaze is 1.2 liter petrol I4. It has the capacity to crank out 88 horses and 109 NM of torque. The diesel engine comes in the form of a 1.5 liter unit which has the capacity to deliver 100 ponies and 200 Nm of torque. Both engines will cooperate with a five-speed manual transmission. Details about the top speed and fuel economy ratings are yet to be announced, but there is no doubt that the 2016 Honda Amaze will remain the most-fuel-efficient vehicle in its class.
