Honda Motor Co., Ltd. will start selling the Vezel in Japan on December 20, 2013. The Vezel is touted as a new vehicle that merges the dynamics and stability of an SUV, elegant styling of a coupe, and the functionality of a minivan. Also available in 4WD for both hybrid and petrol variants, the Vezel boasts of a coupe-like personal space for the front seats as well as from the so-called “magic seats” thanks to Honda’s original center-tank layout, which also provides for large cargo space with a 453-liter capacity.

The hybrid variant will feature SPORT HYBRID i-DCD, Honda’s next-generation Hybrid System that marries a 1.5-liter direct injection engine to a high-output motor to provide power equivalent to that of the 2.0 liter engine.

It is also expected to have the highest fuel economy in its class in Japan.

The Vezel hybrid variant will be the first among all Honda hybrid models to be fitted with the carmaker’s original Real Time All-Wheel-Drive (AWD), which offers more precise control of torque distribution to the front and rear wheels via electronic control.

All Vezel variants feature advanced technologies and functions that could be found on high-end models, like an Electric Parking Brake and Automatic Brake Hold.  The Vezel also boasts of high-performance soundproofing materials and dampers that are usually found on high-end saloon models. Honda will roll out the Vezel in Europe in 2015. [source: Honda]
