Verdict:

If we talk about the ruling sedan, then it is definitely Honda Amaze. With its high-tech features, competitive pricing, amazing mileage and comfortable interiors, Amaze is the first choice in this segment of sedans. Though Chevrolet Sail and Toyota Etios are not far behind in terms of characteristics but in terms of price and mileage, the companies have to rework to match the rank of Honda Amaze.
