Prices for the new Amaze begin from Rs 5.60 lakh for the base E trim and go up to Rs 9.00 lakh for the top-spec diesel VX (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
There are four variants on sale – E, S, V and VX. All variants come with dual front airbags, ABS, Isofix child-seat mounts and rear parking sensors as standard. For now, the first 20,000 bookings will get the car at this introductory price.
The 90hp, 1.2-litre petrol and 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engines remain unchanged, even the five-speed manual continues, but the diesel engine is now available with a CVT automatic. The diesel-CVT combo makes less power, but the car makes 20hp and 40Nm less. The fuel efficiency figures are 19.5kpl for the petrol-manual, 19.0kpl for the petrol-automatic, 27.8kpl for the diesel-manual and 23.8kpl for the diesel-automatic.
Depending on the trim, the car is available with a 7.0-inch infotainment system with a capacitive touchscreen, GPS with turn-by-turn navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, a reverse camera, steering-mounted voice controls and cruise control, paddleshifters along with kit-like LED daytime-running lamps, 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, keyless go with push-button start, automatic climate control and a rear defogger.
The new car is also much lighter and it has grown, so there’s more space in the cabin – the car offers more shoulder room, rear headroom and distance between the front and rear seats, respectively. Luggage space has also increased by 20 litres and now stands at 420 litres.
