Except for the styling upgrades on the outside and inside the cabin, the new sedan will likely retain the same engine and transmission options. It will be available with a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine. Both engines can be mated to both the transmission options.

Honda Amaze competes with likes of Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Hyundai Aura, Ford Aspire and Volkswagen Ameo. The updated Amaze will take the game a notch higher.
