New Dash coming in. Got a confirmation from the dealer involved in the training.

Apart from the new dash, if they have also addressed the NVH issues, I would definitely consider this car, for it's one of the most practical sedan. Honda, if you are smart you would do this.

More details in pics of the refresh - Chrome makes its appearance more prominent in its font fascia making it more ugly!

Introduction of a new touchscreen infotainment system besides an updated dashboard are part of the refresh.

Change of dash is a very welcome move and gets a big thumbs up. Honda is hell bent on ruining the faces of their cars by adding hideous disproportionate chrome grills. Yuck!

There goes the biggest advantage BRV had over the likes of Amaze and Mobilio. Honda could have waited for the BRV launch and went ahead with this facelift.

That said, the interior is way ahead of the current one. Welcome change.

Although both are cars positioned in totally different segment, I can see your point. There will be not much new in the new BR-V if Honda is launching this car in March.

Looks like the vents come from Jazz/City. Honda has a one size fits all approach these days. Wonder how the 'premium' models are sharing the interiors with the economy models

Looks Decent. Aam Junta will like the front big chunk of chrome. I am really impressed with the interiors and it is a generation ahead than the previous version. The sales of Amaze should increase after this refresh is launched. Overall a very good Job by Honda

This is good effort from Honda. A much needed interior + exterior refresh. Should pick up some sales.

Will this dash come in the Brio now is the question.

With this dash making it's way into the Amaze and soon to be launched BR-V, we will now have the Amaze, BR-V, Jazz and City sharing similar dash design. A good and bad thing.

Honda seems to be making the 'changes' which should have been there by 'default'

With this, I also wish for stiffer rear suspension. That would make the car behave much better when loaded.

This dashboard+interior packaging+great engines would have seen the Amaze get huge volumes from Day 1. Hope it's in the pipeline for the Mobilio which really needs something drastic to market itself.

Dash looks way better. Headlights and taillights look better as well and I'm neutral about the chrome. Is there any change to the seats? Does it still come with fixed headrests?

Wow that dashboard looks neat! Do we see any possibility of retrofitting that in existing Amaze?

That thick slab of chrome looks disproportionate on the Amaze. It is a direct lift from the 10th gen Honda civic.
