As soon as i read 'Amaze' i was sure it would NOT look amazing and i was right. Some of these names that car makers give to their cars makes me wonder who approves them...What is Amaze about this?

It's a chibi-Civic!


It doesn't look bad, but there's not a hell of a lot one can do with a very specific niche; under 4m sedans.

it looks so developing market like, where is this heading?

On a positive note, the detailing is quite restrained by Honda standards.

What's amazing is that Honda continue to persist with this same-same and terrible front end design language. Could someone from Honda please make it stop.

Why do cars for poor countries have to look so horrible?

One the one hand, they have to offer a lot of space, thus unfortunate proportions, and they have to be cheap to produce, so no fancy details or surfaces; Also, often the are based of some ancient platform, so again proportions will suffer when a new kind of shape is squeezed on them; Bigger ride height for bad roads adds to the visual non pleasure;

But, and this is probably a major reason, in most developing markets, some of the "western" models are on sale as well, and they have to be more attractive to justify their prices there...

Even with the proportions etc., the face is a sin. The accent line doesn't marry well with the headlights and tail lights. And so on.
