In movies, the first installments are often the best, as, for the most part, sequels straight-up suck. In cars, it's usually the other way around. A clear representation of this is the next-generation Amaze that was launched in India.
If you can recall that tiny hatchback and sedan from Honda that were locally introduced in 2014, you wouldn't miss the large jutting headlamps. Those days are now gone, you're looking at the Brio Amaze's "new year, new me" version.
The 2018 Amaze was launched by Honda Cars India Ltd. (HCIL) at the 2018 Auto Expo. This is the 2nd-generation model since its 2013 introduction, and it's more appealing to look at as it was given the same treatment as the 2017 Mobilio; it carries closely comparable headlights, grille, and bumper design. The 2nd-generation Amaze was a product of the Honda R&D Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. in Bangkok, Thailand.
“In 2017, Honda provided our products and joys to over 30 million customers around the world. The automobile products accounted for 5.3 million of our global sales and India was a great contributor. We are committed to the Indian market and aim to launch six models in the coming three years."
Aside from claiming that the Amaze is equipped with the latest safety and convenient features, technical specs and interior details had not been released yet. Moreover, it's a bit early to tell whether the 2018 Amaze can reach Philippine shores. It would be better if Honda Cars Philippines could make it happen, though.
With demand for its Xpander, Mitsubishi aims to make 2019 its best year for sales.
The construction of the Metro Manila subway will be starting later this month.
Nissan’s Livina shares the same platform with the Mitsubishi Xpander, but parts don’t tell the entire story.
