The minute details provided by Team BHP while reviewing a midlife facelift is amazing. None of the other reviews that came out yesterday for this facelift, contains this level of detail and is mainly a copy-paste from the earlier Amaze reviews. This is what differentiates the reviews in this forum from other car reviews available online/offline.
On my opinion of the car; it still continues to look a bit weird as per me.

I only have 3 words for this facelift-
Dead on Arrival
This an average product at a now-so-average selling segment.

Instead of wasting their efforts and resources into a dead 4m compact sedan segment, they could have spruced up the WRV inside out, given it a 1.5 CVT, even a diesel CVT if that mattered. It would have still sustained some sales. Seriously, Honda India is just closing the doors one by one on its future in the country.

Cousin in Mangalore was looking for a beater so I suggested he try the new Amaze. He had a TD of the Diesel CVT and was quite negative about the NVH (he used the word खटारा - jalopy - but he has a Q5, so perspective could be everything here). And then he was told that said variant would set him back 14 big ones.

I think he's trying the Aura tomorrow.

On the savings front, the maintenance amount published by Honda, certainly looks VFM (I suppose they use their own Honda branded oil as well to keep the costs low)
Thank you so much, Kedar. It really helps me. Will give it a try again and see if it changes the perception.

The biggest downsides of Amaze/Brio and even Mobilio (I own one) are their ugly looks and thin seats. Not to forget that ugly dashboard that was later changed. Otherwise I think they tick the right boxes for most buyers.
Apart from the looks I've been very happy with my Mobilio petrol(V). I think it does most things better than its competitors.

IMO, Amaze is a great value for money at this price point with top end petrol automatic for around 10 Lacs on-road. It is the only car with a 4 cylinder engine greater than 1 litre capacity and a smooth CVT gearbox. Rivals offer either a 3 cylinder 1 litre engine or jerky AMTs.

Hi,

Is there no front seat centre arm rest in the top model as well?

Front centre armrest is not being offered in any variant.

It is an official accessory - just that it ends up covering the bottle holder in the center.

Its a really good looking car. Both front and rear has little traits of Accord and Civic. Removing the diesel CVT from mid spec car is a let down for some.

The second-gen Honda Amaze has crossed the 2 lakh deliveries milestone since its launch in May 2018.

There are various vlogs on youtube claiming that an Amaze CNG variant is about to be released in 2022. Does anyony have any idea on the launch dates?

I test drove the Amaze CVT today. Some impressions:

THE GOOD
-- The car looks acceptable now, after the minor facelift. In dark colors it looks bigger that it actually is.

-- The ample use of beige make the interiors look nice and airy.

-- the dash layout is simple and elegant with everything where it should be.

-- The boot is big, I think it's the best in class.

-- With Baleno going the AMT way, i think this is the most VFM (if not cheapest) CVT in India now.

-- CVT's very nice for sedate, city driving. It's not jerky or annoying like some AMTs.


THE BAD
-- White color makes it look like a cab. For some strange reason it is more expensive too in white.

-- Touchscreen is responsive. But the rear camera is the worst i've seen in any car that I have tested in the last few days.

-- Speakers are below average.

-- Scores very low in bling factor. No sunroof, high end audio, etc.


AND THE UGLY
-- The front seats are a pain, esp if you are a big guy. They seriously lack under-thigh support and i found even lumbar support to be inadequate. Long drives will be a pain.

-- With the world moving to SUVs, sedans need to offer something special in driving dynamics to draw customer. This one, sadly, doesn't.

-- No cruise control in automatic.
