As reported by Best Car, the Honda Vezel Sport will be more aggressive looking than the RS grade that features a dedicated front grille, fog light and lower body garnish, black side mirrors, 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome exhaust finisher and stainless steel sports pedals. Reportedly the Vezel Sport will boast a stiffer suspension setup for improved handling.

But that’s not all, as Honda is planning to deploy a more powerful 1.5 liter turbocharged engine from the Civic stable. The JDM Honda Civic sedan uses the L15B engine that churns out 170 hp of power and 220 Nm of torque.

The Vezel Sport will likely be the final derivative of the first generation Honda Vezel. According to a Japanese publication, Honda is working on to introduce the second generation model on a fast pace because of some fierce competition from Toyota C-HR. The next generation Honda Vezel is expected to arrive during the second half of 2019.
