The one car that was stealing all the thunder in Honda showrooms across the country (before the all-new City stepped in) was the Amaze. The first diesel-engined Honda for the nation hit it off pretty well with the masses, and now, having been on sale for less than a year, the Amaze has received a new trim level - the 'SX'.

Even if you took a cursory look at the feature list, you won't miss the fact that the SX - the variant that now sits between the mid-level S and the range-topping VX - offers dual airbags as standard, which is actually the only difference between it and the S. And yes, up until now, the only petrol-powered Amaze that had ABS with EBD as standard was the VX. That changes now, as the SX petrol gets it too.

At the launch of the new variant, Mr. Jnaneswar Sen, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd said,"We are pleased to introduce “SX” variant of the Amaze with added safety features. The S variant has been the most popular variant in the Amaze range and with the addition of SX variant, we are confident that this new variant will appeal and bring delight to the customers seeking safety features at the volume range."

The SX petrol has been priced at Rs 6.22 lakh, while the diesel-engined SX is yours for Rs 7.12 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
