The Honda Urban SUV concept was supposed to preview a Fit-based crossover that would be sold in global markets and even be produced in Honda’s new Mexican plant. Now, we have the production version, oddly named the Vezel.
The oddly named Vezel is Honda’s take on the Nissan Juke and other B-Segment crossovers. Like the Juke, the rear door handle is mounted on the C-pillar, but the two could not be more different. The Vezel is conservatively styled. Honda hasn’t released specs for the car, despite its on sale date approaching within the next few months. But it will use a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, as well as a hybrid drivetrain, presumably shared with the Fit.
