The 2017 Honda Vezel is coming in hybrid variant for upcoming season. This subcompact vehicle is being eco-friendly, so its popularity has grown over the years, although it was relatively recently launched. Crossover has nice performance and visual appearance, and for 2017 model, it is even more upgraded and updated. However, its greatest highlight is fuel economy. This type of SUVs are generous when we talk about mpg rating, and it is now even better. Numbers are not final, but car should deliver over 30 miles-per-gallon.
2017 Honda Vezel engine
Under the hood of the 2017 Honda Vezel will be hybrid combination of standard, petrol engine and electric motor. It will be another step for Japanese carmaker in this segment, since buyers are more keen on hybrid vehicles, so every year we have more vehicles of this type. Petrol unit is 1.5-l four-cylinder, and its pairing is 22 kW electric battery, which supply it with more power. Classic gas engine, with lithium-ion motor, can deliver up to 150 hp and 120 lb-ft of torque. Drivetrain is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Gearbox transfers power to front wheels, and all-wheel drive could be used as well. We believe that new 2017 Vezel SUV is going to deliver at least 10 percent better fuel economy, or even 15 according to some reports.
2017 Honda Vezel redesign
Crossover is coming as 5-door vehicle with attractive body and comfortable interior. Although most attention was on the powertrain and hybrid combination, designers gave their effort to make this SUV elegant, modern and attractive to buyers. Upcoming SUV is sleeker than before, but similar to predecessors with some parts and overall dimensions. Inside, quality of the materials used for cabin are improved, and 2017 Honda Vezel could be in par with luxurious vehicles. There are new navigation system, climate control and infotainment system.
2017 Honda Vezel arrival and price
New 2017 Honda Vezel Hybrid could arrive very soon. Some experts believe we can see it later this year. However, since there are no many information about it, launch could be delayed, as well with pricing, which is going to be revealed as more details are available. We can predict $22,000 value for standard units of new Vezel, or $25,000 for hybrid.
