Auto major Honda has registered over 6,000 bookings of its all new Amaze sedan within days of its launch, indicating the overwhelming demand for the vehicle in the subcontinent.
Honda Amaze dealers were said to have received a number of enquiries all across the country about the new vehicle. Taking note of the rising demand, the company has reportedly decided on a two-month waiting period for the vehicle in some cities.

The diesel variant, developed specifically for the Indian market, comes with a 1.5 i-DTEC engine. This model is expected to give a fuel efficiency of 25.8 kmpl, making it the most fuel efficient diesel car in the Indian market.
