    Default It's Vezel time, AlhamdoLillah.

    Presenting " HAWKZEL "
    Salam fellow PW's, Bought Honda Vezel Hybrid few days back. Landing in lahore in January InshAllah . Upgraded from 9th gen civic.

    First of all, congratulations on finally receiving this beautiful machine, I was actively following this thread earlier but then got away from pw for a few days. It looks really good in those rims and tires, the profile seem just right to me.

    Since you must have driven it for a few days now, what kind of mileage are you getting? I guess you'd be experimenting with it initially so the mileage figures shouldn't be near the claimed ones.

    I have a Fit Hybrid of previous gen, and I can get ~18-20kmpl in city with careful driving and ~20kmpl on gt road and 16.5 on motorway (@ 110-120 kmph).

    Thank you so much .. Yes initial days so mileage estimates will truly start from my second tank refill which btw maybe tom ;p Still ive had a very good idea .. on local with careful drive it gives 18-21 kmpl and if you just cant resist sport mode mauch ( like me these days ) then it ll remain around 14.5-16.6 kmpl .. these are my early estimates .. Yes the Navi doesnt work here but its got HDMI so i can just connect my android and get googler maps running on it in no time ... USB, Bluetooth, DVD, MP4 playback all there .. Its Panasonic Strada Series CN-R500D ... You can check it out online ..

    Honda Vezel Hybrid 2014 Review
    By Dr Zeeshan Ashraf

    Background
    Before beginning hunt for my next vehicle, I finalized the maximum amount I could spend and the range bracket came out to be 3.0-3.4 million PKR. I started out by setting certain pre requisites; it had to be JDM, it had to be 2013 or higher model with no more than 25k on odometer and it had to be 5A grade or higher. After a detailed survey, I shortlisted the following options;
    1. Toyota Prius 3rd Gen S Touring Package 2013-14
    2. Toyota Prius Alpha S Touring Package 2013-14
    3. Nissan Juke 2014
    4. Lexus Ct 200 2013-14
    5. Toyota Allion/Premio 1.5 L 2014
    6. Mitsubishi RVR 2012-13
    7. Mitsubishi Galant fortis 2013
    8. Nissan Sylphy 2012
    9. Mazda Axela 2014
    10. Honda Vezel Hybrid (2014)

    Making the right call wasn’t easy. Apart from Prius, Lexus CT and Juke, I had not experienced any other car out of these options. So in reality, it was going to be judgment call and to many, a risk. But after careful workup, my mind and heart was set upon Honda Vezel Hybrid 2014.

    Introduction
    When Honda’s previous hybrid technology of IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) failed to live up to their expectations and couldn’t really compete with arch rival Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive in sales, Honda Japan launched its new series of hybrid engines in 2013. Honda Fit hybrid, Honda Grace Hybrid and Honda Vezel Hybrid, all utilize this latest sports hybrid technology and design offered by Honda in japan with Earth Dreams Engine Series.
    Now, AlhamdoLillah, after having owned and driven Vezel in various conditions for almost a week, here are my detailed personal impressions about this car for all who are or might be interested.
    DESIGN
    Exterior
    Come 2014, come the era of modern automotive design category; Compact crossovers. Terminology based on the fact that these cars take designing clues from other vehicles above and below their category and try to fill in the gap which had always been there from a design perspective. Honda Vezel Hybrid is based upon Honda Fit Hybrid and Honda CR-V. And boy have they done a remarkable job here. Are these SUV’s? Technically no. Are these Sedans or compact hatchback? Nope. They are just compact crossovers. That’s the end of it. And their recent global acceptance is a testimony to the fact that they are here to stay.
    Pros
    Honda Vezel Hybrid 2104 has perfection written all over it when a car enthusiast analyzes its exterior. The front is beautiful. Grill, bonnet, bumper, headlights, fenders, every inch of designing detail is a beauty to behold. The back is equally good if not better with LED lights. Most of all, as a package, the road presence is spectacular and surely a head turner. In its class, maybe only Mazda CX-3 is able to compete with Honda Vezel in designing.
    Cons
    16 inch alloys with 60 profile tires maybe practical but also the weak link in its exterior as well. They simply don’t do justice. Although the top Z trim does offer 17 inch alloys and seem more appropriate.
    Interior
    Pros
    The moment you open Vezel’s door and step in, you can’t help but feel that you’re sitting in a car worth way more. There is no doubt as to why it is categorized as a premier luxury vehicle in Japan. The front panel, steering wheel, door panels and arm rest all have high class leather stitched finish. There’s an all touch climate control panel. The meter, I-MID and gear lever all beautifully designed. Nice chrome finish around speakers and AC vents. LED cabin roof lights come standard. When you look at the seat fabric and floor mats, you realize how much detail went in selection of materials and overall aesthetics of Vezel’s interior. Leg space and overall cabin space is great and it’s a proper 5 seater. Honda’s magic seat system comes in real handy when one wants even more space for cargo and stuff. All in all, Vezel’s interior design fuses together the personal feel of a coupe and the comfort of a minivan at a high level.
    Cons
    The only thing I’ve noticed is that the piano finish around the gear console is a bit prone to micro scratches and swirls.
    ENGINE
    Honda Vezel Hybrid is equipped with a 1.5 L direct-injection engine from Honda’s Earth Dreams Series. It has Intelligent Dual Clutch Transmission with paddle shifters. This combines with a powerful Li ion battery (placed beneath the rear seats) which powers the single motor. Combine these 2 and you’ll get 152 Hp with 0-100 time of just under 8 seconds. It’s extremely fuel efficient at the same time and one can achieve city mileage of 20kmpl with ease in Econ Mode. Many people are wary of the fact that Vezel might be underpowered, but what people don’t realize is that it only weighs 1180 kg (almost 100kg lighter than Civic) and therefore you get great weight to power ratio and exhilarating torque.

    DRIVE
    This is arguably, the most important aspect in a driving machine. It could be beautiful and have all the perks, but if it doesn’t drive well, then that’s a serious drawback. Fortunately, for Honda, Vezel passes the drive test with flying colors. From first gear, it is smooth as silk in acceleration, steering control and handling. The shift between electric and hybrid modes is seamless once in motion. Road grip and handling around corners is a joy to experience and traction control can be used as an option to make one feel even more secure. One thing which is hallmark of truly great luxury machines is their sound proofing and Vezel doesn’t disappoint here either. At 140kmph, I couldn’t hear any road or outside noise. The sleek beams on driver’s sides are very well placed and limit the issue of blind spots very efficiently. Civic PKDM 9th gen owners can verify how risky and annoying this issue can be. Anti-Lock Brakes with EBD do their job as they should and make you feel completely in control of the machine. Auto Brake Hold function is a great innovation and blessing in local traffic as you don’t have to keep pressing the brake or shift to neutral while short stops in city. City collision assist is handy.
    Cons
    If I really have to point out something I’d say the first gear switch between EV and Hybrid could be even smoother. Having said that it’s more like an idealistic demand which I’m sure in time would soon become realistic with future hybrid technologies on the horizon.

    Standout Handy Modern Features
    ? Electronic Park
    ? Auto Brake Hold
    ? City collision Assist
    ? Vehicle Stability Assist (Traction Control )
    ? Height adjustable cup holders
    ? Adjustable Head Lamps

    ? 6 airbags, Climate, Steering and Cruise Controls
    ? Reactive Force Pedal

    ? Honda Smart Key Entry System



    VERDICT
    The all new Honda Vezel Hybrid is a winner all the way. Its practicality makes it evenly attractive to younger generation as well as family people looking for a comfortable daily ride. With the options at our disposal in this price range, Vezel is surely a complete standout and value for money. Overall 9/10
    (Available in 3 trims; Hybrid, Hybrid X and Hybrid Z and option of AWD as well)
    This is my first ever review/detailed write up. My apology in advance in case I did not get anything right.

    Very nicely described. :thumbup:
    I can see a bright future for this car, more people should consider this car. I'd buy this over a Prius or juke any day.
