  • Honda’s First BS-6 compliant Diesel model in India

New Delhi, January 29, 2020: Honda Cars India Ltd. (HCIL), leading manufacturer of premium cars in India, today announced introduction of BS-6 compliant version of its popular family sedan Honda Amaze.

Commenting on the launch Mr. Rajesh Goel, Sr. Vice President & Director, Marketing and Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd, said, “Honda is committed to bring its latest and advanced environment friendly technologies to the Indian market and today we have introduced BS-6 version of our largest selling model Honda Amaze. It will be available in both Petrol and Diesel. Amaze will be our first BS-6 diesel model in India offering most powerful performance in the segment with best balance of fuel economy.”

Powered by 1.5L i-DTEC diesel engine in both manual and CVT versions, Honda Amaze will be the first BS-6 compliant diesel model from Honda in the market.

Honda' s originalSilver Thin Coated DPF (STC-DPF) enables reduction of PM combustion time by 40% compared to the conventional DPF.

The petrol model will be equipped with BS-6 compliant 1.2L i-VTEC petrol engine in both manual and CVT.
