Powered by the updated 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine, the Honda Amaze will be the first BS-6 compliant diesel model from Honda in the market. Honda has applied its advanced exhaust gas after-treatment system with NSC (NOx Storage Catalyst) and DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) to meet the challenging target of particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission in case of diesel engines. Honda’s original Silver Thin Coated DPF (STC-DPF) enables reduction of  PM combustion time by 40% compared to the conventional DPF.
