Finally, Honda has launched its much awaited and anticipated urban crossover SUV, the Vezel, in Japan. The Sport Utility Vehicle is priced 1.87 million yen for the base model and is priced up to 2.68 million yen for the top variant.
The Vezel comes in two engine options - a 1.5-liter engine, 2WD, that is capable to deliver a peak power of 87 kW and a peak torque of 144 Nm, and a 1.5 liter, petrol-electric hybrid engine, 4WD, generating tremendous power of 100 kW and stunning torque of 170 Nm and is mated with a seven-speed DCT.
It will be available in many attractive colours, and four choices of wheel designs. The front fascia and side angle somewhat remind us the CR-V. But, the rear view is entirely new and looks very odd to other Honda machines. In fact, there is a German touch something seen in BMW machines.
The Vezel is purely based on the Fit/Jazz platform, which is currently the best selling car in Japan with over 20,000 sales every month. So, Honda expects the same with the Vezel.
This SUV will be competing with the Opel Mokka to the Renault Capture, which are the best selling vehicles in the class.
