Honda has announced that it will not bring the attractive-looking Vezel in India. They have also announced that they will launch a new Brio based compact SUV instead. So the design language of Brio has been quite popular but the only thing holds customers back is that the car is available in petrol motor. But with the Amaze and soon to launch City – things will change and soon Honda could be the leading car seller of India by end of 2014!

The reason of not launching the Vezel here is that the making costs are high and the car’s overall price will sum up to more than Rs. 16 lakh which is unfavorable for the segment in India. The Managing Officer of Asia Division of Honda said, “My impression is that the Vezel is a little expensive to fit into this vacuum. It has technologically advanced features and the localisation of these features would take much more effort and expense, making it difficult for us at this moment. The Vezel employs an electric handbrake that will take a lot more effort and investment to locally design and manufacture. Moreover, swapping this for a regular handbrake will involve a fair deal of redesign and engineering costs, and isn’t viable.”

News also suggests that the Brio Based compact SUV will be launched in other developing markets of Asia. It will accommodate not 7, but 5 people and it will have redesigned larger wheels, better design cues and some other changes in the interiors. It is not clear about the length of the car, whether it will be sub-4-meter or more than that and a lot more about this new SUV will be confirmed in 2014!
