Cars worth waiting for in 2013
Yes, it might have been named by an accountant at Honda but the Amaze promises to keep your running costs low. It is after all the first-ever diesel car that the big H will sell in India. The Amaze sedan is based on the Brio platform, which has been extended for better rear legroom. The 1.5-litre engine develops an estimated 90bhp and promises to deliver around 20kpl, making it highly fuel-efficient. The car is under 4-metres in length which means that it will get excise benefits that the government doles out to cars under 4-metres and having engine under 1.5 litres (in diesel).
Prices are expected to start at around Rs 5.5 lakh for the base versions of the car, which means that the Swift Dzire has its days numbered as the king of the entry-level sedan segment. The Amaze arrives in March.
Estimated price - Rs 5.5 - Rs 8.5 lakh
Expected launch – March 2013
