Honda Vezel Hybrid is the production Urban Concept & Jazz SUV: Tokyo Motor ShowWed, 20 Nov 2013 00:00:00 -0800
Honda Vezel Hybrid is the production Urban Concept
At the Detroit Auto Show at the start of the year, Honda revealed the Urban Concept as a compact SUV based on the Jazz and destined to take on cars like the Nissan Juke. Fast forward to the Tokyo Motor Show and the Honda Vezel Hybrid has been revealed as the production version of the Urban Concept (although it’s unlikely the Vezel name will be used in the UK) and will arrive in the UK in 2015.
In Japan, Honda are offering the Vezel with either a Sport Hybrid i-DCD which mates a 1.5 litre petrol wityh an electric motor or as a straightforward 1.5 litre petrol, both of which will be available when the Vezel goes on sale in Japan on 20th December 2013.
When the Vezel does arrive in the UK to take on cars like the Nissan Juke and new Ford EcoSport it will no doubt be offered as a hybrid but with the option of Honda’s new 1.6 litre diesel engine too – which will doubtless be the big seller.
