The second-generation Honda Amaze made its debut recently at Auto Expo 2018, and we’re now bringing you live images of the pint-sized sedan courtesy of IndianAutosBlog. The new Amaze has been redesigned from the ground up, and continues to occupy the sub four-metre entry-level sedan segment.

Compared to its predecessor, the new Amaze boasts a bolder front fascia featuring a thick chrome bar grille inspired by the tenth-gen Civic. Sharper-looking headlights are also fitted here, along with a more reserved bumper that gets smaller fog lamp sections.

Viewed from the side, the higher nose of the new car becomes very apparent. There are also simpler lines here than before, with just a prominent one linking the headlights and taillights. The A-pillars are more upright on the new car, which is likely done to improve interior space and visibility. Along with the less rakish C-pillars, this sees a new shape for the side windows as well.

Around back, there are new taillights, which now extend partly into the hatch. The chrome trim piece previously found between the clusters has been removed in favour of just the ‘H’ logo. The badges also get swapped around a bit, with the ‘Amaze’ now found in the upper left (previously upper right), while the engine type is in the lower right.

We also get a good look at the revised interior too, which adopts a more upright dashboard design. Now, the centre air-con vents, infotainment system and air-con switchgear are more clearly separated from one another, with the last two item appearing more upmarket than before.

Also new here is the steering wheel with a squarish boss and familiar controls for the infotainment system and cruise control function. The driver also gets a new instrument cluster with a twin-pod design rather than three circles found in the first-gen model.

The first-gen Amaze can be had with a choice of two engines – a 1.2 litre i-VTEC petrol and 1.5 litre i-DTEC diesel. While official powertrain specs aren’t out yet, these two engine should be retained. A five-speed manual is a definite as these photos show, while a CVT will likely be the other option.
