The petrol variants of new Dzire and the Amaze are almost equally matched, at least on papers. Though, a major difference is that the Amaze petrol offers an optional CVT, the new Dzire comes with an AMT for both its petrol and Diesel engine variants. Coming to the Diesel variants, Honda’s 1.5 iDTEC Diesel engine for the Amaze is far more superior than the Dzire’s Fiat-sourced 1.3 Multijet on paper. However, when it comes to on road performance, the Honda unit offers high NVH levels, poor refinement and a rather dull performance. This means that the Dzire Diesel is much better than the Amaze Diesel. Above all this, the Dzire Diesel also offers an optional AMT.

  • Price –  Despite its fresh looks, better fuel efficiency and additional features, the Dzire is cheaper than the Amaze. So, the Dzire is a clear winner in this aspect.
  • Specifications –As mentioned earlier, the petrol models are evenly matched at least on papers. However, the Dzire could have a slight advantage when it comes to on road performance. Additioally, despite  higher power Dzire also offers a higher mileage. Hence here as well, the Dzire is a clear winner
  • Features – Dzire offers much more features than the Amaze. So, again the Dzire is ahead of the Amaze.
  • Design – Design is a matter of personal taste. The Amaze does not look bad a car, however the Dzire carries a fresher design which is comparatively more attractive than that of the Amaze.
There is no doubt the the Dzire will have a negative affect on the sales figures of the Amaze. If the Amaze has got to provide a tough competition to the Dzire, Honda would have to look to give the Amaze a price cut.
