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?

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.
