Previously exclusive to the top-end 1.8L variant.
As per a new report from PC Auto, the MY2017 Honda Vezel (Honda HR-V in other countries) 1.5L will get LED headlamps, LED taillamps and an upgraded interior. This is the first major update for the Guangzhou-Honda-built Vezel since its launch in China on October 28, 2014.
As seen in the images, the new Honda Vezel gets dual barrel LED headlamps identical to the HR-V sold in ASEAN markets, where the LEDs are for low beam only. It also gets LED DRLs, revised LED taillamps, while the rest of the car, including alloy wheels, look identical to the outgoing model.
At the tape, the Vezel measures 4,294 mm long, 1,772 mm wide, 1,605 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,610 mm.
The Vezel is sold with two petrol engine options – a 131 hp 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and a 165 hp 1.8-litre i-VTEC petrol engine, which can be had with either a 6-speed manual gearbox and Earthdreams CVT with seven ratios. In most variants, power is sent to the front wheels, while all-wheel drive is available in the top-end variant.
Prices for the current Honda Vezel range from CNY 128,800 to CNY 189,800. In China, the Vezel is sold alongside the Honda XR-V, a less expensive and distinctive version of the Vezel manufactured by the Dongfeng Honda JV for a geo- and age-wise different target audience. It is sold in five trim levels and priced from CNY 127,800 to CNY 162,800 at launch.
