Honda is all set to launch the second-generation Amaze in India on May 16, 2018. Bookings for the sub-4m sedan have already started for a token amount of Rs 21,000. The updated Amaze looks more proportionate and sedan-like than the first-gen model and rides on a new platform too.
If you’re planning to buy the new Amaze, you’ll be happy to know that Honda will offer a 3-year/unlimited kilometre warranty on it. Here’s how it fares against the competition.
The 2018 Amaze is being offered with a 3-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, which isn’t offered in any other car in the segment. The only other car in this segment that comes with a 3 year warranty is the Hyundai Xcent, but that’s also capped at 1 lakh kilometres. All other cars get a warranty cover of just 2 years. Surprisingly, the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, which happens to be the best-selling car in its segment, gets a warranty cover of just 40,000 kilometres!
On top of the standard warranty, carmakers generally offer extended warranty for an additional sum on all their cars. But a high-mileage and long-duration standard warranty shows how confident a carmaker is about its product.
While such a warranty is beneficial for all buyers, it can be particularly useful for those who cover a fair amount of distance everyday. In our video review of the new Amaze, we have pointed out how the top variant of the diesel-powered Amaze equipped with a manual transmission is a clear winner and we wouldn’t even mind paying a slight premium for it over its rivals that offer a similar setup in their top variants. A high-mileage or long-duration warranty on the Amaze should then seal the deal for those planning to go for the diesel-manual combination.
