Honda had amazed us with the introduction of its diesel engine in the first gen Amaze. Now in 2018 we are yet again amazed by the pricing of the Honda Amaze which is priced competitively to the Maruti Dzire. Honda Amaze 2018 begins at INR 5.59 (ex-showroom) and the Dzire costs INR 5.56 (ex-showroom) so strategically Honda has pulled off what no other manufacturer could. If you ask why then you need to look at the warranty and extended warranty offered by Honda, that is an unrealistic offer from a large scale manufacturer like Honda in India. This reflects the Honda’s commitment towards its Indian customers.
