Re: Honda Amaze : Official Review

All - I have a 2024 Honda amaze Vx CVT and completed around 1.8k km. Would like to clarify couple of points with fellow owners:
1) Mileage. So far noticing mileage in city about 8-9 kmpl in Chennai. It includes daily school pick ups/drops etc. Did a trip to Tirupati and got an overall mileage of 13 kmpl.
Is the mileage expected to improve over a period? or post first service. I have been reading stories of people getting 15-20 kmpl on highway drives. Hence curious to know if things could improve over time.
2) There’s complaint from rear passengers of bouncy ride, understandable due to softer suspension. Will suspension buffer like rogerab help alleviate the issue? Anyone personally used and experienced improvement in ride quality? Is there any long term impact to suspension due to this?

TIA

Re: Honda Amaze : Official Review

Our Amaze, which has now reached the nearly 9-month mark with approximately 3600 kilometers on the odometer. Despite the AC running continuously during its journeys, Our Amaze has been achieving an average of around 11 kilometers per liter in Bangalore traffic, .for shorter trips, typically covering less than 6-7 kilometers each time.

During recent trips from Bangalore to Mysore and Hassan, Amaze recorded 17 kmpl.

Re: Honda Amaze : Official Review

Honda Amaze scores just 2 stars in the latest round of Global NCAP Safety Testing.

https://www.autocarindia.com/car-new...-rating-431350

This test is based on the new NCAP norms. The same car built for South African market previously scored 4 stars from Global NCAP as per the old norms.

Even more shocking, the car scored 0 stars in child occupant protection rating. Adult occupant protection score was low due to the lack of optional side head protection, absence of ESC as standard as well as a seat belt reminder for the driver only. The three-year-old child dummy suffered from high loadings in the chest and neck, while the one and a half year old dummy was at risk of being ejected.

Hopefully the revised Amaze to be launched later this year will fix some of these issues.

Re: Honda Amaze : Official Review

Amaze has actually done pretty well for itself in the crash test if one reads the fineprint. The car has lost stars because of missing items like ESP and lack of six airbags. But going by the loads on the dummies and the structure’s performance, the result is commendable

Hello, I own a Amaze CVT Petrol 2023 model, clocked 4,800 kms. I only do weekend long drives. The mileage on my dashboard is stuck at 11.6 kmpl. For the first few months I received only single digit mileage, then it increased to 10, 11, 11.5 and finally 11.6 and it is stuck at 11.6 kmpl forever . I maintain a speed of 80 - 100 per hour and RPM under 2,500.

I spoke to the Service Manager at Honda wanting to know if the mileage will ever improve and his response was "Sir, you should be happy that you are getting 11.6 kmpl and there will be an improvement after you get your 1 year major service done"

Please let me know how are you are managing to get 17 kmpl.

Thank You.

I don't wish to boast! but I have achieved 26.8 kmpl for 81 kms on a bigger car, the Honda-City CVT.

I can squeeze out more in the Amaze!

Re: Honda Amaze : Official Review

Yesterday, I purchased a used Dec. 2019 White Honda Amaze V CVT petrol. It barely had 14k KM on it, and it seems a good purchase. Albeit, it didnt get the service manual, and when asked from the used car dealer, he didnt have it.

Anyways, I was able to download one which seems close to the car model that I have.

Some points that I came across this thread and while reading the .pdf:

(1) This car requires annual service / 10000 KM which ever comes first.
(2) 0W-20 grade oil should be used. 3.2 Litres as per manual.
(3) Air filter change every 20000 KM.
(4) CVT transmission oil change interval is too high as per manual. Whats the ideal CVT transmission oil change interval?
(5) Where is the AC\Cabin filter located?

I haven't yet fiddled with the audio system much except setting up radio channels.

I wish to perform DIY when it comes to basic service on this car and wish to know has anyone performed it.
Otherwise, I will resort to YouTube and Google for information for DIY.

It is located behind the glove box. You can see the filter box cover once the glove box is removed. The replacement is quite easy. Honda PM 2.5 filter costs Rs. 879.10 including taxes.

I have done some DIY's and aftermarket fits to my car, Amaze VX CVT.

1) Auto-folding setup for ORVM. The relay is available online, just check in google for Hotcarshop or the link is below:

https://www.hotcarshop.in/productdet...ts&_pc=PROD846

This, I got the relay and got it fitted from outside.

2) I fixed the Dashcam myself, and the procedure is quite straight-forward, can be found here (2021 Honda Amaze Facelift : A Close Look)

3) I am planning to install auto-dimming IRVM, just sourcing for the part right now.

4) As the CVT model is devoid of cruise control, I am planning to install Aha NexCruise after-market for cruise control.

5) As for audio, just play around with equalizer and see if it meets your taste, otherwise aftermarket fitments is the way to go for serious audiophiles.

Do let us know if you need something more.
