We’ve talked a lot about the Honda Vezel over the past few months, as the Autoblog staff is looking forward to the Fit-based CUV. It’s a handsome little vehicle, that we think will do quite well when it finally arrives in the US market. That said, it’s not a particularly exciting vehicle to look at.

Along with the appearance of the Mugen-tuned Vezel at the Tokyo Auto Salon, though, a new concept that’s being shown by Honda today at India’s Delhi Auto Expo has us hopeful for a Vezel that looks a bit more assertive. It’s called the Vision XS-1 Concept, and it’s a seven-passenger (yes, seven) crossover that features minivan-style sliding doors. It sports Honda’s “Exciting H Design,” which is the same design philosophy used by the stylists that penned the new Fit. Unfortunately, at the moment, Honda has provided exactly zero details about what powers its new concept.

As a concept for the Indian market, which is home to some of the tightest, most congested roads on the planet, the stylish XS-1 is meant to demonstrate that Honda knows a thing or six about building compact vehicles. In that regard, we think it’s a spot-on piece of work.
