Honda Atlas Cars Limited plans to release the brand-new Vezel in Pakistan soon. On a digital banner at the Pakistan Auto Show (PAS) 2022, the Honda Atlas Pakistan announced Vezel as "HR-V All New 2022 Coming Soon" without giving a specific release date.
The Honda Vezel is a compact crossover vehicle manufactured by Honda in Japan. The Honda HR-V is its international equivalent. A few years ago, Honda Atlas Cars Pakistan Limited unveiled the first-generation model of the Honda HRV in Pakistan. The first-generation Honda HR-V in Pakistan is similar to the Hi-rider Revolutionary Vehicle with the exception of a few minor aesthetic changes, most notably a redesigned front grille and hybrid technology.
It has been six years since Honda Atlas introduced the HR-V to the Pakistani auto market in January 2016. At the time, the CBU unit for the automobile cost Rs. 3.6 million. Due to intense competition, the Honda HR-V was unable to successfully capture the market's sales, and as a result, it was unable to endure and sustain itself against its escalating competition.
According to certain accounts, Honda Atlas is now working to bring the Honda HR-V back. Let's look at the elements that influenced the manufacturers' decisions.
Auto enthusiasts were thrilled when HACL began testing the HR-V in Pakistan last month. The test car for the 11th generation Honda Civic could be seen in the photos covered in the same camouflage as the SUV. It was made evident in later updates that HACL had in fact brought the SUV over for testing.
In order to compete with crossovers like the Toyota C-HR, Corolla Cross, Mazda CX-5, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Nissan Juke, and others, Honda debuted the HR-V, also known as the Honda Vezel in Japan, at the beginning of 2021.
Since its introduction in February 2021, the most current Honda HR-V generation has been sold in several countries, including the bulk of Asian markets. Keep in mind that the version that is now being tested appears to be the one that has already been released in Malaysia and is going to be published in Thailand, Indonesia, and Japan. The US-market version of the vehicle features a unique fascia that resembles the Honda ZR-V that is sold in China.
It provides a range of powertrains, including an electric hybrid alternative, for various markets. The HR-V is equipped with modern Honda Sensing features including a 360-degree camera, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, automatic braking, traffic sign reading, lane departure warning, and more.
In the local Japanese market, this brand-new Honda HR-V is also known as the Honda Vezel, and it differs significantly from the vehicle it replaces. The design draws largely from coupes and has a slanted rear hatch. It's strange that there isn't a standard solid wing face on the front. The car's towering, wide headlights and more vertical nose give the impression that it is larger and more frightening.
Six airbags, parking sensors, smart infotainment, climate control, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, hill-start assist, hill descent control, electronic parking brake, and other features are among the additional features included in the majority of Vezel/HR-V vehicles.
The 1.5L i-VTEC gasoline engine, 1.5L i-VTEC turbo engine, and e: HEV hybrid powertrain connected to an e-CVT and two electric motors are all available in the HR-V. Based on the test mule's wheels, we may assume that Honda Atlas imported a hybrid HR-V model even if the range-topping RS variant also comes in hybrid e: CVT form.
The import documentation said that the SUV cost Rs. 6.05 million, which seems like a fair price. Atlas Honda has upped the price of all the vehicles on their listing, so the carmaker is likely to launch at a considerably higher price given the ongoing local currency erosion and rising operational costs. Therefore, the price of the HR-V in Pakistan may range from close to Rs. 10 million (Rs. 1 crore) to as much as 10 million Pakistani Rupees.
This may be fantastic news for Honda HR-V enthusiasts, but we're not too sure. In any event, a vehicle in testing has been spotted on local roads. Images of a crossover SUV with a full covering Were previously displayed, albeit it's unknown what sort of automobile it was or whether the firm would introduce this car as a vezel or as HR-V.
The newest Honda HR-V generation was introduced in the US and will go on sale by the end of the year, so keep that in mind. The unit that was discovered, assuming it is an HR-V, is not that vehicle; rather, it is a different vehicle.
According to some sources, Honda will soon introduce the all-new BR-V, which will replace the present model that has been on the market since 2016, as well as the new HR-V. Although no exact release date has been announced as of yet, it is predicted that these automobiles will start to be made available before the end of this year.
The company would be making its entry into the crossover SUV industry, thus it would be thrilling if Honda offered this car in Pakistan. Honda refers to the BR-V as a crossover SUV, while many auto industry insiders label it an MPV. Share your thoughts with us on this detected unit, although it is another topic. Is that actually a Honda car? Enter your thoughts in the box provided for comments. An HR-V, perhaps? However, according to our study, it is extremely difficult to sustain the Prices of the Vehicle owing to the Current Economic Crisis and High Inflation in the Country, and a little delay is also Expected.
