Review
Went by Kah Motors to catch a glimpse of this newbie, in comparison to his immediate different name but comes almost all the same, Vezel.

There is a DX (Base model) and LX (slightly better gadgets) from the agent.

First looks, exterior has a new finish front and back, front is close to BMW design grill while back seems close to Porsche series.

Interior, typical and practical with a new touch screen and factory fitted rear aircon blower too. Seats at the back folds upwards taken from their Jazz idea. Electric handbrake is same as previous model and now comes with hill start assist too. Electric tailgate is in LX and eHEV variant as according to agent SE. Honda Sensing is standard across all variants. Dashboard comes with standard meter dials, while LX and eHEV has digital ones. All systems like the Speed dials and Audio system are in English, than the rival in Japanese. Auto headlight and rain sensor too in DX and eHEV.

The drive, moving off is radically smooth with no jerking when you tap on the throttle. Gear change is also smooth and soundless. Only drawback is lack of power to this heavier vehicle which could perform better if paired with 1.5L VTEC Turbo engine. Parking was a breeze but did not come with IPAS, otherwise is easy to park for this wider car.

Overall, its a good day to day SUV to have if you do not mind the lack of power and value for money to get for a new look, new features SUV. And if you want factory fitted than local 3rd party fitted to go for, then this tor kor car is the one for you.

What I like
New exterior look
Rear aircon by factory
Honda Sensing
Electric tailgate (LX and eHEV)
Digital Dashboard (LX and eHEV)
Spacious cabin than before
English systems for the audio and dashboard

What I do not like
Under Power, better to be paired with 1.5L Turbo
A bit pricy due to the current COE (Mar-Apr 2022)

Review
The Honda HR-V is back with a totally different skin - all ready for the electric era with a new and sleek, plain front, and a stylish rear.

What I like
Love the car in white. The exterior design is a pleasing thing to look at and the interior is quite well laid out as well, if a little boring.

The car now rides very comfortably. It is soft over all sorts of bumps, and the cabin is well quiet as well.

What I do not like
There's not a lot of power to go around, and while the engine is quiet, it does not sound nice when worked hard.

Rear headroom is also rather dismal.. You're really better off in the Honda Jazz in this regard.

Review
The Honda HR-V is back, with a new look that can divide. I think the rear looks sharp and handsome, but that front, with the air-conditioning unit-like grille, will take some getting used to.

What I like
The car looks larger in the pictures but it really is not. There's not a lot of headroom at the rear, and those seated up front will be just ok. Thankfully, the new HR-V compensates by being positively soft when it comes to its suspension setup this time, so all seated within can get more comfortable when the car starts moving.

What I do not like
If you like the exterior look of this HR-V, be prepared, the rear luggage space is not great. The power output is weak, without the torque that you can get from other turbocharged rivals.

This DX-spec car also comes with tiny 16-inch wheels, the steering wheel is made of plastic, and you have to pay extra to get your seats in brown if I remember correctly.

The car also has the sort of infotainment system that already looks outdated and is only bound to show its age even more so down the line.
