Honda Cars India is all set to increase the prices of Amaze sub-compact sedan. The Japanese carmaker has announced the the price of Amaze will be hiked from April 1 to make up for increased input costs. The price of the Maruti Dzire, Hyundai Aura rival will go up by around 12,000, depending on variants, from next month. The reason behind Honda's rising input costs for Amaze is the upcoming Bharat Stage 6 emission norms which requires carmakers to upgrade engines to be compliant with the new RDE norms.

Honda Cars had launched the Amaze facelift version back in 2021. Under the hood, the Amaze comes powered with a 1.2-litre i-VTEC naturally-aspirated petrol engine. The engine, mated to a five-speed manual transmission as well as CVT gearbox, can churn out 89 bhp of maximum power and 110 Nm of peak torque. It is currently priced from 6.89 lakh and extends all the way up to 9.48 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-end version. "We will increase Amaze prices by up to 12,000 with effect from April 1 to factor in the rise in the production cost due to the upcoming stringent emission norms," Honda Cars India Vice President Marketing & Sales Kunal Behl was quoted by news agency PTI.
