Amaze is doing for Honda what Dzire did for Maruti. Amaze has already touched 6000 units a month, a genuine threat to the India’s latest top seller. Honda has hit the sweet spot with more space & more FE being offerred at almost the same prize. Honda tag is an added advantage.

Time for Maruti to do some ground breaking innovation, otherwise, the day is not far when Amaze will hit the 20k mark.

Yes, it is all due to Amaze. However if HSCI found lacking in the production & keeping enough stocks with their dealers’ end, it is going to back fire.
