Honda Amaze price: Honda plans to implement a price hike of up to ₹12,000 for its best-selling Honda Amaze sedan starting from April 1 2023, in order to make up for the increased production costs associated with the upcoming strict emission norms which are set to take effect next month.
According to Honda Cars India Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Kunal Behl, the price increase for the Amaze will vary depending on the different trims of the model.
The decision to hike prices comes in response to the increased production costs associated with upcoming stricter emission norms, Behl also confirmed that the prices of Honda Cars India’s mid-sized sedan, the City, will remain unchanged. The Indian automobile industry is currently striving to ensure that its products are in accordance with the second phase of BSVI emission norms.
Starting April 1, all vehicles will be required to have an onboard self-diagnostic device that will continuously monitor real-time driving emissions. This device will keep a constant check on key emission control components such as the catalytic converter and oxygen sensors to ensure they are meeting the required emission standards.
