April 6, 2016 Car 0 Comments

If you like your cars smart, spacious and useful, you are probably a fan of the SUV. The Honda Vezel 1.5 goes one step further,

“The VEZEL’s distinctive and sharp character lines fuse together the SUV-like stable lower body and coupe-like upper body. The stylish exterior design adds a glow to the people on the vehicle. Developed under the concept of “Expansible Cockpit,” the interior design pursues both spaciousness and a personal feel.”

Powered by an iVTEC engine, the Vezel holds it’s own on the road. All this plus fuel consumption rated at 20 kilometres per litre(km/l) for mixed highway and urban driving.

In Singapore, the other compact SUV that stands out is the Nissan Qashqai. So which is better?
