The all-new Honda Urban SUV Concept was officially introduced today at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show and the Japanese company announced that it hints at the styling direction of a new small SUV. Set to make its debut in 2013 in Japan and in 2014 in the United States, the new Urban SUV Concept promises to become a fun-to-drive and fuel-efficient small SUV with aspirational design.
The vehicle is 169.3 inches long, which means nine inches shorter than the Honda CR-V. When it will hit the U.S. market, the Urban SUV Concept will feature fuel-efficient Earth Dreams Technology and will be priced and positioned below the CR-V within the Honda light-truck lineup.
Moreover, the compact SUV will feature Honda’s Magic Seat setup, able to provide a host of passenger and cargo options, including a fold-flat mode for maximum cargo capacity. According to the official press release, the new small SUV will be manufactured along with the Fit at Honda's newest North American plant near Celaya, Mexico, which is expected to open in the spring of 2014.
