Honda’s Fit-based crossover, the Vezel, has just gone on sale in Japan and now the automaker is showcasing aftermarket potential at the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Headlining the pair of custom crossovers is the Mugen Vezel Concept sporting some extreme styling with a two-tone contrasting exterior. Mugen has also developed some new wheels in its product lineup, which may or may not sit well with enthusiasts.

The more mild of the two is the Vezel Modulo Concept, which according to Honda, “further pursues a sense of high quality and sportiness of the new Vezel.” Minus the wild chrome exterior, the Modulo Concept is a more realistic version of the stylish crossover getting the aftermarket treatment.

Both Vezels present at the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon were the hybrid variants, which won’t be offered in North America initially. U.S. sales of the Vezel will begin in the second half of this year with a standard gasoline model first before a turbocharged version with improved fuel economy comes later on.
