The Honda Vezel is a five seater compact SUV that has been in production from 2013 to present. It is known as the Honda HR-V in other markets outside Japan. It boasts of high safety ratings and it offers all round protection for both passengers and pedestrians.
On the outside, the Vezel looks similar to the CR-V but with sharper crystal headlights and a flatter grille. All grades come with alloy rims and fog lights.
The interior is top notch made of a fusion of soft plastic and leather materials. The instrument panel is made of crystal clear LCD displays and soft touch buttons.
At the first row, the legroom is excellent and the seats can adjust to fit any desirable seating position. At the second row, the legroom is similarly impressive and tall people will find it comfortable.
It’s offered with 2 engine options; these are a 1.5 Litre DOHC i-VTEC petrol engine and a 1.5 Litre DOHC i-VTEC i-DCD Hybrid petrol engine. These are linked to either a CVT transmission or a 7-speed DCT transmission for the hybrid versions and are available in both 2WD and 4WD.

Other than that, we don’t see any major issue with this car and you can buy it without any worries.
