The Japanese firm had in April last year launched its much-awaited entry level sedan Amaze in India at a price range of Rs 4.99 lakh to Rs 7.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

At the time of its launch, the company had planned to sell around 50,000 units of its Amaze in the current fiscal and announced to launch five models in the country over the next three years.

The new model, which has been developed keeping in mind the Indian conditions, competes directly with market leader Maruti Suzuki's Swift Dzire. Sen said there has been pricing pressure due to the rupee depreciation but the company has not yet decided to increase the price of the Amaze.

Amaze is the Honda’s first diesel offering in India.

In January this year, the company launched Amaze SX in petrol as well as diesel.
