Jnaneshwar Sen, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Honda Cars India said, "The newly developed iDTEC engine belongs to the new generation powertrain technology Earth Dreams Technology that realises both excellent driving performance and fuel economy at a high level.

We feel that the contemporary style of Amaze and all the core values of Honda (durability, quality and reliability) will appeal to the growing base of entry level sedan customers."

The power of the engine is unknown. The company has not revealed other features of the Amaze. It is expected that the vehicle will feature most of the specifications to suit the needs of consumers at an affordable price.
According to Motoroids, Amaze will pack "dual airbags, ABS with EBD, 8 spoke 14" alloy wheels, height adjustable driver's seat, rear defogger, ORVMs with turn indicators and rear seat arm rest with cup holders."
