Yes the Honda Vezel will not be there at the Auto Expo 2014 and while we were waiting for this SUV to be showcased at the Expo, Honda wisely chose not to show it as it will not be bringing this in India. The reasons are cost based as the Vezel is filled with features and tech which will not be feasible from a price point of view.
Fret not as Honda will instead do a worldwide unveil of a new concept crossover called XS-1. The will be the second concept to be shown along with the NSX, Honda says the ''Vision XS-1 is a study model of a new crossover model which features sporty styling and outstanding utility space based on Honda’s unique packaging technologies.''
This could very well be the Brio based compact SUV in concept form. Just like the Mobilio this Brio based SUV will be very crucial for Honda in India. We expect this compact SUV to be also powered by a diesel engine plus having spacious interiors. The styling will be Brio like for sure but more rugged. Though Honda has not revealed any details of this concept so we have wait for a few more days to find out!
