The Honda Vezel Mugen concept represents the official Honda tuner’s vision for how it can influence future models from the Japanese car maker.
The Vezel Mugen headlines Honda’s Tokyo auto salon line-up, sporting a rather extreme bodykit for the Jazz city car-based sub-compact SUV that’s destined to reach our shores before the end of this year.
As well as the obvious exterior modifications the Vezel Mugen comes with a number of engineering modifications, including a dual exhaust, upgraded brakes (with an ‘Advanced Complete Brake System’) and sports suspension.
The car’s exterior is its most notable trait, however, with a new front grille, front and rear spoilers, side skirts, a large rear wing, and unique 20-inch aluminium wheels all featuring prominently.
Inside, the car receives semi-bucket front seats, a unique gearshift knob, and special trim covering the steering wheel, dashboard, centre console, doors and rear seats.
Mugen, Honda’s Japanese domestic tuning division, also brought a number of other modified concepts and racing cars to the auto salon, including a CR-Z-based touring car, an example of the SF13 single-seater and customised versions of the Jazz, Odyssey and N-WGN.
