With a focused aim of weaning away customers from Maruti-Suzuki Dzire, both Honda Amaze and Chevrolet Sail met with a good customer response as their sale numbers have shown a steady progress since their inception in market. Although initially pitted right against the Maruti Dzire, now these two propositions are also slugging it out within themselves for increasing their market share. Honda Amaze, the newest kid on the block has taken the whole sedan market by stormwhen it was launched in market though Sail’s first impression was not such a mind boggling event. Honda has been able to price Amaze aggressively by passing on the excise duty exemption to its customers by limiting the length of Amaze under the limit of 4 meter. But then Chevrolet has done even more impressive job by matching the price territory of Amaze and that’s tooeven without compromising on its status of fully fledged sedan. Now it is all but obvious to confuse between these two new market offerings as both of these look on par with each other. So out of these two Dzire’s rivals, which one you are going to choose? Is brand name of Honda big enough to pull you towards its dealership orSail’s genuine sedan credentialultimately prevails upon you? To clear the fog and get you the precise answer, this week at ecardlr we decided to push the competitive boundaries of saloon segment by pitting these two Dzire’s rivals against each other. Hope on to our road test comparison cable car to get unobstructed view of this gruesome battle going on between these two fearsome rivals in order to get the ultimate control of Indian sedan turf.
Both the cars on comparison are good looking and contemporary in nature. That said there is fundamental difference in their designing philosophy with Honda taking a more aggressive approach compared to slightly relax one adopted by Chevrolet. Amaze’s pretensions are sportier, sleek and stance is bit more tipped forward. This forward stance not only looks dynamic in the profile view but also has served the utilitarian purpose of wrapping up the whole car within the crucial limit of 4 meters.Boot has been very well integrated to the hatchback body and it swells out nicely within the length constraint. Back to back lines in the side body panels hide the bulk especially present on the B-pillar and that is a nice and clever touch given by Honda engineers. Front face of Amaze is unmistakably resembles to Brio except double slatted grill while rear has got some tail lamp inspiration from the elder cousin of Amaze; City. Overall look is sophisticated, contemporary and going to be one of the strongest points in achieving the strong sales of Amaze.
With the Vitara Brezza, Maruti takes teh sub4 meter battle straight to Ford Ecosport, a compact SUV which since it's launch did not have a worthy competitor. Vitara Brezza is banking on huge fan following of Maruti's badge to make a dent to Ecosport sales. And if Ford action o fcutting prices of its most popular car is any indication, it seems to have ruffled feathers in competing camp. How well Brezza stand up to Ecosport, read and decide. For us the decision is still pending.
