Honda's Diesel Car Amaze Offers 25 km mileage

honda amaze sedan india
When the sales of diesel cars is thriving in India due to the difference in price between petrol and diesel, Honda is amazing people by introducing their first diesel car in India. Honda is promising that Amaze will run 25.8 km for one litre of diesel.It is positioned to be a small sedan with necessary space, features and decent finish.Honda is giving maruti dzire and toyota etios a run for their money with the launch of amaze in the same segment.

Amaze is the sedan version of Honda Brio.Brio and Amaze were both born and brought up in Thailand and Japan.Engineers from around the world teamed up at honda R&D centre at Bangkok to bring out this product.Amaze comes under the category of compact sedan where the length of the cars would be less than four metres to avail lesser excise duty (manufacturer tax benefits).Amaze does not look like it has been chopped off or a tail being added to the hatchback version.The wheelbase has been increased by 60 mm.This resulted in big roof and larger doors.The interiors are similiar to that of Brio.If you are comparing the interiors with Etios, you have to admit that the interior is of better quality.The interior is a combination of biege, chocolate and black finishes.Driver seat is adjustable.There is legroom in rear seats  and lot of storage space also.400 litre boot space is amazing considering the small size.The knee room of 930 mm is the same as that of honda city, the bigger sedan of honda.

Honda has been developing diesel engines since 2003.2.2 Litre i-DTEC was developed in 2008.1.5 Litre diesel engine used in amaze is from this series.This is the smallest diesel engine manufactured by honda.The main features of the all aluminium engine which the honda calls 'Earth dream technology" are aluminium block, thin crank shaft, short & light weight pistons, improved cooling system, performance enhancing engine oil. etc. The machine produces 100 Bhp power and 200 Nm torque.Aluminium does not have the noise absorbing capabilities of cast iron or other denser metals. So you get a noisier engine to deal with.

The petrol amaze also has got a 1.2 litre responsive engine.There is an automatic transmission variant for the petrol version.

Diesel version is economical and powerful and 25.8 kmpl is not a figure that should be neglected.It is noisier than Dzire or Etios, verita, manza.Petrol Amaze fetches you a mileage of 18 kmpl & the automatic version returns a slightly lower figure of 15.5 kmpl.I would be surprised if Amaze does not capture the market.Hope honda does not mess up in marketing similiar to what they did with Jazz.

I lost my voter id card issued by the election commission of india. I lost it along with the driving license in 2007. I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala. So I got an information that the election department at the Tehsil (Taluk) office is starting to issue duplicate voter id cards from 08.10.2010.So I drove to mavelikkara  yesterterday  in my Astar and it was raining heavily. I reached there and find a long queue of people.Since I have completed the form before hand, I just need to find my card id number and put the data and place in it.A person employed there took my application form and he checked the number of my family member in the kiosk in the same room. The kiosk terminal didn’t showed my number. So he forwarded my application

Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified   Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders. Why India needed an ID System? India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money. Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.
