2013 Tokyo Motor Show: Honda Vezel is the Fit-based crossover everyone was waiting for

Article by Christian A., on November 20, 2013

At the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Honda brought the Vezel, a new vehicle that fuses together multifaceted values at a high level. Set to make its debut on the market on December 19, the new model is actually the vehicle that everyone was waiting for: a crossover based on the Fit. What you see here is actually the hybrid version and Honda says that this and the non-hybrid model will use a 1.5-liter direct-injected engine.

Still, no details are available. The hybrid model will be equipped with SPORT HYBRID i-DCD that will combine the 1.5-liter engine with a high-output electric motor. In terms of design, the Vezel is actually a production version of the Urban SUV Concept that was unveiled back in January, at the Detroit Auto Show. It is a stylish crossover that can take you almost anywhere you want to.

The vehicle comes aggressive headlights with LED daytime running lights, rear door handles borrowed from the Civic Hatch and interesting tail lamps. The interior is quite simple but catchy and we can’t wait to test it! [source: Honda]
