First impressions & observations: Honda Amaze petrol CVT

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

BHPian naru80 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

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.

An 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 customers. This one, sadly, doesn’t.
  • No cruise control in automatic.
