I understand that you are too busy enjoying your new drive, but we all are eager to see your experience and impressions.

In case not getting time to pen down comprehensive review, will appreciate even if you can share some glimpses in order to address our curiosity!

Thanks

Do writh review

Thank you Sreehari.

The hunt for this particular replacement (WagonR for parents) started long back - and we really got serious about it when Brio AT was launched. I took a TD as soon as it reached showrooms, but the decision was postponed due to various reasons. Amaze AT was the next contender, and we took a trip to the showroom to book it as well!

Will try to write a detailed review once i get the car.

OTR: 8,00,304
What's included: 4 year's Extended Warranty, Under-body Rust protection, Basic Accessories, 0% Dep Cover, 5K Corporate Discount

Good Deal, believe though the interiors need to be spruced up by adding seat covers (7k), Alloys are expensive (28k), Better Tyres (no idea what to do here, not sure if I can get them replaced straightaway) and finally the Music System, its really basic. Though none of them are a priority.

Liked Honda's idea of putting basic safety features like Airbags and ABS on the mid variant (ABS is on all diesels), gives people a choice of safety by not asking us to pay for the additional accessories.

The delivery is scheduled for the 14th March.
Dear Pratyush,

Firstly, many congratulations for the Amaze.

I stay in Ranchi currently and was in the market to buy a Ford EcoSport but sadly the lacklustre attitude of the Ford dealers in Ranchi, Jamshedpur and Bhubaneswar forced me to cancel my booking and go for the new Honda City VMT i-DTEC. The buying experience from Basudeb Honda has been amazing.

You can read more about the experience from Ford and Honda in this thread: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...er-family.html (2014 Crystal Black Pearl Honda City VX-D - A new member in the family)

Let me know whenever you are in town. I will be glad to meet a fellow BHPian.

Regards,
Arunabh

All of the above options were ruled out for lack of ABS and airbags. High possibility of a head-on collision in kerala's 2 lane highways. Was too ignorant when we bought the WagonR last time, didn't want to repeat same mistake now also.

Congrats. I was very much confused between red and black, finally booked silver for ease of maintenance for parents.
