Luckily I've come across one of the few reviews of the JDM spec Vezel written in English. For one, did you know the Vezel comes with electronically controlled cup holder adjustment?

The fact is, the gasoline version gives plenty back even when driven more assertively. Admittedly, the catalogue specs for the equipped engine is slightly different from the catalogue specs for the hybrid but it has the same 1.5 liter capacity. It’s just lacking a motor, so to speak. However, the car is 90kg lighter (compared to the Hybrid Z), and upon further inspection, that calculates to 30kg in front and 60kg in the back. Whether it's the success of those proportions, or the quality acceleration resulting from the CVT, the Honda Vezel’s gasoline version offers a drive that’s completely faithful to its driver. The paddle shifts are effective here, too.

Great find, for decades Honda and other Japanese car makers have always given the home market all the cool stuff. Like in the early 90's some honda has GPS Navigation, yet it was basically not even heard of in north america.

Haven't seen anything about them with that kind of stuff. But Bentley's are Bentley's, so many good things to them if you can afford one.

GPS navigation is almost a necessity in Japan due to the scarcity of named roads and the address system used. But they do get all the cool stuff. Small cars there have much nicer interiors than here where they are considered basic transportation.

wasn't aware of that, really don't know much about Japan...only know that it's a place i want to visit!

But it still surprises me that they had it so early, way before us

The review only mentions "Starting with the cup holders in the center console for which deepness can be changed with the push of the button,"

Electronically? May be this is just a mechanical button controlling a spring loaded bottom. Good old technology.

The drink holders are mentioned in the brochure and I found a few references on the internet though I couldn't find anything that really details how they work, only that the position is adjustable and Honda's consideration of such a fine detail etc. But here are a few pics in case anyone's interested:
