Expected Launch Date: SEP 2017 – OCT 2017Alert me when launched
Honda Vezel PreviewThe Japanese major auto Honda is planning to launch its all new compact SUV Vezel in India, which made its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show earlier this year. The concept version of this urban SUV however debuted at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2013. The vehicle might also be showcased at the Indian Auto Expo in February. The Honda Vezel has been recently launched in Japan at 1.87 million Yen (i.e. around Rs.11.14 lakh). Being an urban SUV, the Honda Vezel will enter the growing compact SUV segment in India, where some very capable products like Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport are already doing really well.
Honda Vezel Design
The Honda Vezel is a good looking compact SUV. The sloping lines along well planned C pillar and sharp exterior curves give it a true crossover appearance. However, it shares most of its design with the Jazz hatchback.
The prominent side lines and sloping lines along the C pillar enhance the sporty personality of the car. The Vezel will be longer than its rivals Renault Duster, Mahindra Scorpio, Nissan Terrano and Tata Safari. The interior of the all new Honda Vezel will be inspired from the Jazz and CR-V. It looks very premium in both appearance and texture. Equipped with various bells and whistles, its cabin feels quite comfortable.
The compact SUV will be spacious and up-market than its competitors. The Vezel is expected to come equipped with highly advanced Honda’s original G-Force Control Technology (G-CON), City brake active system, Electric parking brake, Automatic brake hold along with Pedestrian Injury Mitigation Body and Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body. The interior quality will be best in this segment. The front seats offer coupe-like personal space and rear seats offer ample elbow-room like a minivan. The large boot space feels very practical. In Japan, the Honda Vezel is available in eight different shades, two alloy wheels and one steel wheel option, and we are expecting the same options to be offered in India as well. It is likely to get the high-quality soundproofing material and dampers to offer a pleasant drive.
Honda Vezel Engine Specifications
Honda will offer the all new Vezel in 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engines with two-wheel drive (2WD) option. In Japan, the Mini SUV is available with only petrol engines. The 1.5-litre, four cylinder petrol unit produces a peak power of 132bhp and a torque of 155Nm. There's one more electric motor version, but with the same 1.5-litre petrol engine. Both the petrol mills are made available with a CVT or seven speed CVT in two-wheel drive (2WD) or four-wheel drive (4WD) configuration.
The Vezel will compete against the Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster, which are currently dominating the marketplace.
