    Honda Urban SUV Concept leaks out ahead of Detroit debut

    Honda Urban SUV Concept leaks out ahead of Detroit debut

    Next up on the 2013 Detroit Auto Show embargo-break-a-palooza: the Honda Urban SUV Concept. Thanks to Indian Autos Blog, we now have the first press shots of the small crossover concept – a vehicle that will someday make it to production, riding on the Honda Fit platform.

    It may have some big features – namely, the large headlamps, big wheels, and bold body lines – but the Urban SUV Concept will compete with smaller vehicles like the Nissan Juke or Fiat 500L. Indian Autos Blog reports that both 1.6- an 1.8-liter four-cylinder engines are being speculated for use in the production model, as well as a diesel powerplant for foreign markets.

    That's all we know for now, but stay tuned to see the full smattering of official images and details as part of this week's Detroit coverage.

    Full article and images at link.

    Like I said on GMI, the Japanese can't build attractive vehicles anymore.

    AGREE...
    seems even the 'BestLooking' of their vehicles almost come across as genetically defective
    and
    Honduh is nowhere near the Best of them

    Mazda is putting out the best, imo. The Japanese Big 3 have lost their ability to design a decent vehicle.

    Not very promising at all. Honda has definitely lost its way in regards to design.

    Not as ugly as the Juke.

    Sorry Honda, that is the best I can do.
