Honda Vezel is has reigned in Pakistan as the favorite crossover for youngsters and adults alike. In the past decade, Honda brought forward its hybrid segment cars in the local market as competition to Toyota’s hybrid vehicles. Vezel received a lot of success in Pakistan over the years. While this may be true, the Honda fans were frustrated seeing the same generation of Vezel on the roads. Moreover, with the new entrants coming to the market targeting the same car segment, Honda Vezel seemed to slowly vanish. If you were thinking that Vezel is gone, we have got some good news for you. Honda Vezel 2021 is launched in its home market Japan. Let’s have a look at the details of the 3rd generation crossover, and also review the Honda Vezel 2021 price.
Honda Vezel 2021
The 3rd generation Vezel is equipped with the latest e: HEV hybrid technology. If we talk about the powertrain, there are two electric motors integrated with a 1.5L engine. As per the company’s claims, the new Vezel is an ideal choice for fuel economy. The crossover is capable of providing a 25Km/L average with the new hybrid system.
Moreover, the 7-speed DCT gearbox is now replaced with a CVT gearbox.
The exterior of the new Vezel has a mature and striking appearance. We have already witnessed the design language in Chinese as well as European SUVs. On the front end, you can find a flat hood that stands out with two straight character lines on each side. If we look at the grille, this time Honda has given a body-colored broad grille with a Honda logo on it.
Moving down towards the bumper, you can find a honeycombed grille integrated with the bumper. Some of the key exterior highlights include DRLs, LED headlamps, and fog lights.
The side looks of the car show a rather tough appearance with no curves as witnessed in the previous generation. The rear end of the new Vezel has a slope-like design. You can find dotted LED tail lights separated by a light bar with the Honda logo on in the center. Honda has provided a sufficient boot space this time with additional features like dual-LED trunk lights, a tire repair kit, and an air pump.
Furthermore, you can find 18-inch alloy wheels in the new model.
It looks like Honda has followed the same interior trend as observed in the 11th generation Honda Civic. The overall interior is rather simple and clean while maintaining the class. The key features of the interior include a push-start button, 7-inch digital meter along a speedometer. The driver can vary the information they want to see on the digital meter. There is a leather-wrapped steering wheel with cruise control and radar control buttons on the left, multimedia control buttons on the right, and paddle shifters. Moreover, the steering wheel has both tilt and telescopic adjustment.
You can find L-shape side air vents on the left (of the driver) with a control knob and automatic control buttons for door locks, windows, and retractable mirrors. These buttons are integrated into the door with a piano black finish. While this may be true, the dashboard comes with a hard plastic top and soft plastic bottom separated by AC vents. A 9-inch infotainment screen finds its place in the center with wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto functionality. Moving on to the air conditioning, you can get a dual-zone automatic climate control system. The new air-conditioning system has tactile knobs that look cool and are easy to use. We have also witnessed similar knobs in the latest generation Civic.
The sunroof lovers may be disappointed as there is no sunroof included in the latest model of Vezel.
The new Honda Vezel 2021 comes with six airbags, anti-collision, lane assist, lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking, Electronic Brake Distributor system (EBD) with ABS, hill-start assist, and more safety options.
