Thank you so much . Yup couldn't be happier with the choice i made even before her arrival. Such is the nature of positice feedback ive had from owners not only in Pakistan but all over the globe ( Sri Lanka, Singapore, India, China ) .. Coming to your query, Hybrid Synergy Drive is the name given by Toyota to its hybrid drive terrain technology. On principle, this tech and the Honda's new hybrid tech is the same i.e engine+motor driven by a rechargeable battery are used either alone or combined depending upon the drive mode. transmissions are different with Toyota using CVT and Honda shifting to Intelligent Dual Clutch .. No doubt that Toyota's Hybrid Synergy is a proven winner for years now but Honda's latest Sports Hybrid I-DCT has gotten excellent reviews and feedback so far. I did consider Prius and other cars as well including CT 200h Lexus (for complete list please refer pg 12/13), But Vezel just stood out among all coz of Crossover SUV, Great exterior and interior, Latest tech with tons of features/ almost zero meter and fresh manufactured, excellent review, and a price tag which totally makes it worth the value ..
