This new Urban SUV will offer new-generation hybrid powertrain technologies, delivering a dynamic drive and more efficient fuel economy. The hybrid model is equipped with a 1.5-litre direct injection engine with a high-output electric motor, which Honda calls ‘Sport Hybrid i-DCD’. This power system could eventually feature in future hybrids.
The exterior design of the new model is the robust size of an SUV with sleeker coupé styling on the upper body. Incorporating aerodynamic lines into the side panels, the new Vezel’s design is inspiringly handsome. The interior is spacious and comfortable for both those in the front and rear.
The Vezel name will only be used in the Japanese market, where it is set to go on sale next month. Honda confirmed that the hybrid SUV will be available to motorists in Europe - including the UK - in 2015, but will not confirm a localised name until closer to the European launch.
While we won’t see the Urban Honda Vezel SUV in our showrooms until 2015, we have a wide range of dynamic and efficient models at Avonvale Honda. To find out more visit your local showroom in Coventry, Northampton, Solihull or Stratford-upon-Avon.
