Home / Features / Spec Comparison: Honda Amaze and Maruti Suzuki Dzire

 

We compare the new Honda Amaze and the Maruti Suzuki Dzire on paper.

With the launch of the new Honda Amaze, the popular Maruti Suzuki Dzire is expected to face stiff competition. The new Dzire is a year old now, and the refreshed Amaze looks nothing like its predecessor. Have Honda brought in enough firepower to dethrone their rival? Take a look at what they’ve got.

On paper, both cars are almost evenly matched. Although the Amaze is slightly more powerful, it is also the heavier of the two. Therefore, on the road, these cars are probably going to return similar performance figures.

Transmission

Both cars are available in manual and automatic variants. Dzire customers can choose between a five-speed manual and a five-speed AMT. This is one section where the Honda nets a point in its favour. The Amaze is offered with either a five-speed manual or a CVT (a segment-first among diesel compact sedans).
