Honda launched the Amaze sedan in Thailand on Friday, with India launch scheduled within the next six months. This strategy is similar to the one adopted for the Brio premium hatchback, which was first unveiled in Thailand two years ago, before making its way here.

I saw some prices in the article, but have no clue the conversion. How is it's fuel economy? Will we see it in the US?

Wrong thinking coughlin. Today's diesel engines are virtually as clean as gas and since they achieve much better fuel economy they are better over-all. The picture is even better if bio diesel fuel is used. There is no contest; diesel is the clear winner.

Not a positive passenger car business model over here - too costly.
