Honda Vezel 1.5G (Latest Model)
The old Honda Vezel was due for an update and Honda gladly delivered.
The all new Honda Vezel comes with a new exterior design, spacious and modern interior layout, more tech and a perfectly weighted powertrain. Moreover, it does away with the few features owners complained about in the previous version of the Honda Vezel.
The already good and popular car just got noticeably better.
Many of the latest safety and comfort features come as standard, including Honda Sensing and Magic Seat features, for a unique practicality offer in this segment.
The latest Honda Vezel update makes the already strong competitor in this segment much better.
Exterior Of The Honda Vezel
The design of the new Honda Vezel is futuristic, with a quirky grille and great new headlights. The dashboard has a horizontal theme that maximizes space and functionality while looking elegant. Honda managed to integrate it into the front section and preserve the feel of a traditional grille.
Speaking of the front lights, daytime running lights also double as turn signals and fog lights are also LED.
The side view reveals a nice bold silhouette that obviously borrows its shape from a coupe or a stylish hatchback.
The integrated rear door handle further emphasizes this feel. The stylish exterior is further emphasized by these 16” gloss black rims with chrome accents.
The 1.5L petrol engine produces 117 hp and 142 Nm of torque. Combined with an advanced Eco-Drive assist system, it offers the sweet spot between power and efficiency. Further assistance comes from a CVT gearbox that makes the best use of the available torque, perfectly matching the driving input to the desired outcome, be it acceleration or peaceful cruising.
Accelerating up to legal speeds is a breeze, overtaking is pretty easy and cruising is just completely effortless.
The official fuel efficiency stands at 17 km/L and with the fuel tank of 40L, you get nice fuel economy and mileage, even in the city.
The new Vezel is also very safe with Smart Key System, Hill Start Assist, Parking Sensors, ABS, EBD, auto brake hold, electronic parking brake and Honda Sensing with Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System and Preceding vehicle start notification function.
Interior Of The Honda Vezel
The central console is all new and definitely more up to date than ever before. This design frees up more space up front and it makes the design cleaner. The new multi-function steering wheel is obviously an improvement based on the old one and it looks a lot better.
Storage includes a glove box, central console bin, two large cup holders, door bins, a phone tray next to two chargers in front of the gear lever. We just have to mention how happy we are that the new Honda Vezel now gets physical knobs for the climate controls. It is just so much more practical.
Interior quality is also top-notch. Everything feels solidly built and the tactile feel of the aircon controls adds a very nice touch.
Honda says that the new Vezel offers 3.5 cm more legroom than the old model. It doesn’t sound like that much but there will be more than adequate space in the back.
Two adults at the rear will have plenty of space even on longer trips.
There are no rear air vents but there is an innovative solution at the front that lets the driver route cold air from the front to the rear of the car and down the sides.
It is difficult to talk about the rear seats of the Honda Vezel without mentioning the amazing Magic Seat feature. It lets you fold the cushion of the rear seats upwards and frees space for bulky objects that you would not be able to load into a much larger car.
Under the boot floor, there is an additional storage space which allows for more storage flexibility,
With Honda’s 60/40 split rear seat setup, cargo can be accommodated without jeopardizing passenger comfort, while the rear seat can accommodate extra-long belongings.
This rear seat can be completely flattened with the press of a button in the cargo area. The seat can be reclined at your wanted angle also.
Special And Safety Features
Utilize the Eco assist feature to make your driving more fuel-efficient because it works in two different ways. This system teaches the driver to drive efficiently.
Second, this system optimizes the operation of the vehicle to maximize fuel efficiency with the help of an integrated feedback system and an Econ button.
The Vezel also comes with the Honda Sensing suite of safety features.
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
- Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
- Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)
- Auto High Beam Headlights
- And more.
Adjustable Steering Wheel
The new Honda Vezel provides an easy and direct way to control the car’s features without taking your hands off the wheel thanks to its multifunction steering wheel.
With the telescopic and tilt feature that comes along with it, the driver can change the position of the wheel according to their preference, thus adding to their comfort.
Electronic Parking Brakes
When you hit the brakes, electric motors hold the vehicle firmly in place.
Pushing the button will cause the rear brake pads to be pushed onto the discs by motors. You will also hear a whirring noise from the electric motors as they perform their job.
Is The Honda Vezel A Good Car?
Yes, it is. There was a reason the old Honda Vezel was one of our best selling cars and this one is better in every respect. It adds to the feel and elegance, it keeps the overall ‘practicality philosophy’ and enhances it further.
It does come with the perfect mix of practical performance and efficiency and it does all that with a modern twist that makes the beloved new Honda Vezel a smart choice and cool choice if you are looking for a compact SUV.
