How do you stand out in a sea of lookalike Honda Vezels without breaking the bank? Check out these 12 affordable items you can get to zhng your Vezel.


We haven't seen an invasion like this since the Allies stormed Normandy back in 1944. No, we're not talking about war here, we're talking about the ubiquitous Honda Vezel.

These popular crossovers present themselves at every junction and every turn, making it practically impossible to get through two traffic lights without crossing paths with one of them. Plus, with private-hire services like Uber and Grab offering affordable rental schemes, drivers are now able to 'own' a Vezel at a much lower premium.

This leads to a problem for Vezel owners. How do you stand out in a sea of lookalikes? Fret not, here's a list of 12 affordable items you can pick up to zhng your Vezel and enhance your driving experience.

Scuff plates keep the interior of your door sills in mint condition
1. Scuff plates with LED illumination ($180)

Clumsy passengers in high heels constantly scuffing up your door sills will now be a thing of the past, thanks to Premier Auto Pte Ltd's scuff plates.

These scuff plates not only keep the interior of your door sills in mint condition by protecting them from dings and dents, they also add a touch of elegance to your sweet-looking ride. Bright blue LED lights built into the scuff plates illuminate the flanges of your Vezel's side body panels for a more aesthetically-pleasing cabin.

Premier Auto Pte Ltd is offering a set of four scuff plates at $180, which includes installation. Check out Premier Auto's Honda Vezel scuff plates.

A boot tray allows you to store items like wet umbrellas and muddy boots
2. Boot tray ($55)

Storing junk in the trunk couldn't be any easier with SgGarage's Honda Vezel boot tray. Mud, grease, sand and other nasty stuff are a pain in the neck to get rid of, especially when they come into contact with a car's interior.

A boot tray allows you to store items like wet umbrellas and muddy boots, keeping foreign particles off the floor of your boot and making the cleaning process a breeze.

It can also be conveniently removed and washed, which is a whole lot easier than working your fingers to the bone trying to remove grease from your boot.

A rear bumper protector protects your boot trim from getting banged up
3. Stainless steel rear bumper protector

Are you constantly loading and unloading heavy equipment? Do you have to be extra cautious when storing heavy items in your boot?

Panel beating and bodywork can be expensive and time consuming, that's why we've got just the thing for you.

Tri King's rear bumper protector runs the length of the Vezel's rear bumper and is machined from stainless steel, which ensures a durable scuff plate that is able to withstand prolonged abuse. It also adds a rugged off-roader look to your Vezel.

Door visors come in handy for times when you have to crack a window on a rainy day
4. Door visor ($75)

Rain drops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'. Clearly, B.J. Thomas had no idea what door visors do. These unassuming pieces of moulded plastic keep rain water out while you have the windows slightly open. They come in handy for times when you have to crack a window if you're feeling cold on a rainy day, or if you just need some fresh air.

SgGarage is selling a set of door visors for $75, which come with corresponding clips. These durable door visors are designed to withstand the rigours of driving and exposure to the elements, and are estimated to last for more than a decade. Find out more about SgGarage's door visor.

Side steps provide an additional platform for passengers
5. Side step ($380)

Getting into an SUV can be challenging at times, especially for the kids and their grandparents, due to a higher ground clearance and larger wheels. The solution? Get a side step for your Vezel.

Side steps are helpful for pint-sized individuals or occupants who are unable to muster up enough strength to take that big step.

Besides providing an additional platform for passengers to board a higher-riding vehicle, a side step also protects car doors and side panels from stones and dirt kicked up by the tyres.

The Steelmate TP-S3E features four anti-theft external sensors with an adjustable alert pressure value range
6. Steelmate TP-S3E External Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

It's common for many drivers to overlook the job of regularly inflating their car tyres since tyres tend to be 'out of sight, out of mind'.

However, properly inflated tyres are safer, give a more comfortable ride and reduce fuel consumption. Couple that with the fact that Honda Vezels do not come with spare tyres, and you have a ticking time bomb waiting to blow.

A quick and easy solution is the Steelmate TP-S3E External Tyre Pressure Monitoring System by ZMC Automotive. It features four anti-theft external sensors with an adjustable alert pressure value range, a flexible display for easy mounting and interchangeable pressure units (bar/PSI). Check out the Steelmate TP-S3E from ZMC Automotive.

The StandartPlast is best suited for areas, which experience maximal vibrations
9. StandartPlast Silver Soundproofing ($45)

Road and wind noise are commonplace in less premium cars like the Honda Vezel and can get tiresome. Not to worry, that can be easily fixed with some soundproofing material.

StandartPlast Silver Soundproofing is made from a flexible multi-layered vibration damping material with a butyl rubber-based polymer layer and an aluminium foil outer surface. It comes with a layer of self-adhesive glue for easy installation.

This flexibility allows the StandartPlast to be applied to uneven surfaces while providing maximum vibration damping and doubling up as a sealant. Its waterproof properties prevent water from coming into contact with the chassis, which protects it from corrosion and rust.

The Xado 1 Stage New Car Atomic Metal Conditioner provides top level engine protection for new cars
12. Xado 1 Stage New Car Atomic Metal Conditioner

If your Vezel is still in the running-in phase, or if you're planning to purchase one in the near future, Xado helps make the entire process a whole lot smoother.

The Xado 1 Stage New Car Atomic Metal Conditioner provides top level engine protection for new cars. It ensures the accurate adjustment of a new engine's parts during the running-in phase and compensates for wear-out during operation.

A common complaint among Vezel drivers is the car's slow acceleration, which will only get worse over time. No matter how well a car is maintained, high heat and friction cause a car's engine to become worn, scratched, and misshapen over time. The Xado Atomic Metal Conditioner Maximum Twin Turbo with 1 Stage Revitalizant heals frictional damage that goes up to 0.2mm in depth, thanks to a Complex Adaptive Revitalizant (CAR). CAR provides anti-wear protection, restoration and surface regeneration.
