Honda officially launched second generation Amaze last month in India at the starting price of Rs. 5.60 lakhs. The new Amaze was first unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo and the company had worked extremely hard to price the new model extremely well. Honda priced the new Amaze head on against Dzire which shows the confidence of the company on new product.
In the recent time, top end variant is the most popular choice of buyers. To capitalize on this, Honda priced the Amaze top end variant significantly lower than Dzire in both petrol and diesel model. Another advantage for Honda is that Amaze is the only model in its segment to come with diesel CVT gearbox which is much more advanced than AMT on Dzire.
Honda has also marketed the new Amaze really well and this helped the new model to become the best selling Honda model in India for May. The Japanese manufacturer sold 9789 units of Amaze in May and it is the highest ever by a Honda model in India. The impressive start of Amaze helped the company to post 42 percent growth compared to same month last year.

The sales of Amaze are even more impressive as the new model sold 6 times more than the previous version compared to May 2017. Honda will soon introduce Civic and CR-V this year to continue the growth.
