The name gets a big thumb up from me. Vezel sounds like it should be a name for feminine hygiene product.

I do agree with the 'Vezel' name being pretty terrible. I'm not sure that HR-V is much better though. It's just as good and boring as many other cars' names. Most companies just use a combination of letters and numbers these days. I wish that companies would actually name their cars instead of giving them more of a designation than a name. I wonder if the trim levels will be called something more interesting to give a bit more color to the name.

Does anyone know what "Vezel" means? If it means something that is really relevant to what the car is about I think I might like it more.

See my post for more details, but the name Vezel was coined from "vehicle" + "bezel". I didn't like the name either at first but it has grown on me and is much more unique than HR-V. I'm not crazy about the letter/number trend for car names at all. Maybe there will be market for JDM nameplates like for Mazda (Axela vs. 3)?

I liked the name "Urban" but it looks more like a suburb car. I was hoping they'd change the name to "The Knish" but lesser minds prevailed.

They have CRV so HRV makes sense too if you don't want to think of a real name for 100 hours straight.

seems like it's an american thing, kind of wish we also had vehicles with names and not just numbers and random letters

BMW, Audi, Mercedes... not just american mate...

The original HR-V stood for Hi-rider Revolutionary Vehicle, not sure if the meaning has changed since...

"Hi-rider revolutionary vehicle?" Really?

That is quite an egotistical name I would say. I knew it would stand for something, but that just doesn't seem like a very good name. Is it revolutionary? Is it really that hi-riding?

Thankfully most people will never look into the name enough for it to really matter.

I guess for the time it was indeed high riding, compare that to vehicles of today and it may not have a chance

it could since some of them are attracted to it partially for the name or it's something that makes them like it even more.

Its named urban for the suburbans. For the kitchy symbolism, we all know urbanites share services and complain about public transportation. This vehicle is not for them despite what honda wants to say. Its for the young freshly married suburban couple... >:D

by the way does anyone know what HRV and CRV stands for?
there might be more to it than just some random letters.
