The Honda Amaze Type-R shows the compact sedan in an aggressive avatar, takes inspiration from the mighty Civic Type-R
The Honda Amaze is a popular compact sedan in Indian market. Have you ever imagined this car in a very aggressive and sporty avatar? Well, someone did and rendered the compact sedan with inspiration from the tenth-generation Honda Civic Type R. Donning the Type-R body kit, the otherwise mundane looking Honda Amaze appears ready to scorch the track.
The Amaze Type-R sports projector headlamps and integrated LED daytime running lights, while the black accent around headlamps is also visible. The front bumper is new and gets large air intake and aero element, while the glossy black front grille helps the car to look sportier.
At side profile, the car gets large alloy rims with red accents. Apart from that, the compact sedan also gets side skirts. At rear profile, the Civic Type-R inspired rear wing, LED taillights, faux diffuser with chrome finished quad round exhausts give the car finishing touch to appear more attractive.
The rendered images indicate, the suspension of the car has been lowered. Though Honda has no plan to produce the Amaze Type-R, but a 1.5-litre VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine under the hood of this car would be great. In fact, this engine is available in the Honda Civic Si and it churns out 174 hp of peak power and 220 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duty in Honda Amaze Type-R will be done by a 6-speed manual gearbox.
In India, presently several automakers are introducing sportier versions of regular models. As example, Maruti Suzuki is ready to launch the Baleno RS, Volkswagen has already launched the Polo GTI. Hence, a sportier version of Amaze would a great addition in the list. If entered into production, expect the car to get a price-tag bit higher than the regular model.
