Honda Australia Awaits the Vezel
It has been announced that the recently launched Honda Vezel will be arriving at Honda Perth dealerships in January 2015. The Vezel was launched in the Japanese market and is likely to be re-badged for the Australian market. The small SUV model is likely to be an instant success with Honda Perth dealerships and Director of Honda Australia, Stephen Collins has high hopes for the small SUV to become a strong selling core model in the Honda Australia range.
Volumes have yet to be set for the small SUV demand, but it is anticipated that this niche will grow steadily over the next few years and could become as high in demand as the medium sized SUV. Honda Australia sold almost 40,000 units in 2013 and the company are expecting to see similar sales for 2014. The all new Jazz model will arrive later in the year, which will prove a boost to showroom traffic, but this will be likely to be too late in the year to dramatically affect the annual sales.
However, the January launch date for the Vezel will in combination with the new Jazz model, ensure that 2015 provides great sales figures for the Japanese car manufacturer. There is an increasing demand for SUV models and manufacturers are meeting this demand with a number of small SUVs. It is anticipated that the Vezel will provide an attractive addition to the small SUV segment and could prove to be one of the most popular models for the brand. Although it is unlikely to surpass the sales of established core models such as the Civic and CR-V.
The Vezel will be offered in a petrol and diesel option but the exact powertrain specifics are not yet confirmed. The Japanese market has been offered a 1.5 petrol model and a 100KW/170 Nm petrol and electric hybrid model. A diesel model has not yet been officially announced.
