The Honda Vezel gets an aggressive aero body kit that follows typical Mugen styling. It features a large grille with a bold chrome bar, an exclusive set of alloy wheels, new exhaust system with twin chrome-capped exhaust pipes, and exclusive Premium Crystal Red Metallic color. The interior, although not detailed yet, could also undergo a sporty overhaul.

No changes have been made under the hood. The Vezel in the Japanese market is powered by a 1.5-liter hybrid powertrain producing 132 PS. The hybrid is paired to Honda’s i-DCD (intelligent dual-clutch drive) 7-speed transmission and can be had with front wheel drive or all wheel drive.
