Honda Amaze Privilege Edition

The Honda Amaze Privilege Edition comes with more features that make the car worthy of competing against the new Maruti Dzire, which is loaded with many new advanced features. The 7.0-inch touchscreen music system offers all information and fulfils all entertainment needs of the occupants. The engine options on offer with the Amaze special edition haven’t been changed. As a result, the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel have been continued in the spec sheet. Both these engines perform a satisfactory job, though the diesel unit is a bit harsh and can be heard inside the cabin.
