Sagar Parikh,

I’m the international news editor at I love everything that has a steering wheel!

The Honda XR-V compact SUV that was launched last year in China, has been showcased at Auto Shanghai 2015. The B-segment SUV is the Chinese version of the Vezel, with minor modifications. With a length of 4,270 mm, the XR-V is 24 mm shorter than the Vezel, but with the width at 1,772 mm, height at 1,605 and a wheelbase of 2,610 mm, other dimensions remain unchanged.

At the front, differences include a different pair of headlamps, grille and bumper. At the rear, the China-spec model features redesigned tailgate and sleeker, full-width LED taillamps. Step inside the cabin and a low-tech interior, compared to the Vezel, awaits.
