I just came across this post on FB from a friend of mine, where he is facing issues with the ICE unit of his car from past two months. Link

As per the dealer whom I visited, Honda has last week communicated to all dealers to retrofit the Digipad 2.0 to all customers who ask for it.
The price he quoted was 48k. I have asked them to give me a realistic price. He's promised to get back to me. So I presume there's scope for negotiation.

48K seems to be a reasonable price for the official reverse cam + digipad. Is it possible to retrofit the cruise control into the Honda Amaze automatic? Has anyone tried it?

The top end Honda Amaze will be a killer with Cruise Control and a diesel automatic. Hyundai xcent and Swift do not have cruise control to match up with the Honda Amaze

Made short videos of both these attributes.

Automatic Boot unlock with key inside


Door lock from outside disabled with key inside

Powerdrift and Zigwheels have come out with a collaboration video for Amaze vs Dzire. The theme two sides of a coin. Powerdrift team is really creative.
The review says both the cars are closely matched, however the Dzire has a slight edge.

Honda shares some good news. Pasting as received:

I am going to sound like a party-pooper: I can't see them sustaining these numbers, even if they can do half of it consistently for 9 months, I will consider it an achievement.

I admired Honda, see this advt


If you can make an advt like this, it will have to be backed by a brilliant product. And you couldn't bring that to India and sell it when diesels were ruling the roost( the advt is 12+ years old)

Getting to the top and staying there are two different things.

Want to report real life mileage for the 2018 Amaze diesel manual in Mumbai bumper to bumper traffic : 17kmpl for first 200km. That is double of what my Palio petrol gives, so I'm not complaining.

Excellent news, shows the appetite the current Indian market has at this range. And precisely for this reason, I don't see a reason an excellent product like this can't sustain a good show.

Just to update that my Diesel V CVT is giving me a mileage of 16.5 kmpl both on MID and tank to tank method. It is due for first service shortly. All in city traffic with 100% AC on. This may improve once the engine settles down a bit more.

Does anyone know how long is the neck of Amaze's fuel tank?

A friends one month old Amaze was submerged partially during last week's Kerala flood, water reached till running board height, hence carpet and lower part of seats are damaged. However, Honda claims that there will be chances of water seeping inside fuel tank since tank neck could have been below water. Hence the vehicle was towed to service center, due to large number of vehicles damaged in flood, his vehicle is lying in yard as of now.

He has an idea of taking the vehicle back from service center, getting the carpet removed from outside and later getting it installed when rush at service center subsides. The water seepage into tank theory is what stops from the same now.

I had test driven the Amaze CVT diesel recently and found that the brakes are rather terrible. There's no initial bite and modulating the quantum of braking effort in traffic was tricky.

@petroguzzler

Yes, precisely I had the same brake feeling when I test drove the car. But after now owning it for 600 kms, I think I am used to it and I just drive it normally. It is perfectly adequate for me in the city traffic and no big issue. Just wanted to share my experience on it.

I have no issues with my Amaze petrol and it brakes as expected.

Just an FYI, for the first 1000 kms (1 month) for my Amaze Petrol VMT, I am getting a real life mileage of 12.6 kmpl driven in city during office hours (tank full to next tank full). The mileage in the car shows 12.4 kmpl.
