I know there was a more active thread somewhere just can't recall where I saw it. Anyhow, I am really excited by this car and hope we see it in LA, do you think we could see a 2015 release this Jan at the Detroit auto show?

It's supposed to be available in the U.S. in late 2014.

What I am hoping for is a spring release not a fall release. In fact I hope we see production vehicle in Detriot.

To me, this does not look like a Honda product. The rear differential and suspension is not Honda-like, and the auto parts store exhaust clamp seems out of place.... Maybe a new Hyundai?

I respectfully disagree - pause the video at 1:12 and then compare the front end to this concept image from the front. http://media.caranddriver.com/images/13q1/496447/honda-urban-suv-concept-photo-497349-s-1280x782.jpg

I also think I see an air passage at the top of the grill where it meets the hood - perhaps design for a top-mount intercooler for the turbo diesel and perhaps a turbo gas 1.5-2.0 engine that MAY or may not end up existing??

Whatever it is the BMW camera car was having to dig deep to keep up. Not sure this is any normally aspirated Honda.

I was going to say the same thing, then again, that BMW wasn't really digging too deep.

LudeLeroy,

Ahh. I had not seen that photo before. I think you are correct. Also, the 'Ridges' on the roof seem to have made it to the prototype as well. I wonder what type of rear differential and 'stiffeners' are apparent in the chassis? Hope they have another winner on their hands.

Don't get your hopes too high for big power,guys. They plan to build it alongside the FIT in Mexico. That,probably,means it gets the 1.5. The 1.8 is the best we can hope for. But hope springs eternal.

The idea of a turbo offered is great as long as done right, but will we really see a turbo 4 from honda in this car, seems doubtful, hope I am wrong.

Doesn't the exhaust look a bit small for a turbo?
I think its a hybrid on the video.

Anyway what ever small four engines Honda has planned they will have had engineering make it fit- haha- its what the regional marketing honks order that will ... Again.

From everything I have read they are saying this will be release in Japan the end of this year, and here next year. Seeing that it is already Mid-October when do cars in Japan typically get released?

Looks like they kept it very close to concept which is great!

I'm really hoping its offered in NA (40% of Honda market?) with a competitively powered engine .... oh and then an HPD edition in model year two. ;o)

The only way Honda can really screw this up is if they stick underpowered engines in it so they don't step on the toes of an Acura version.

It looks good. Now bring the power.

They will screw it up trust me. Probably will have an R18 in it or something like that since they are making a whopping 143hp from it with the tuned exhaust.

Depending how they price it, these will fly off the lots. Wander if this is mean as a Kia Soul competitor.

I put my money on R20, the engine of choice for entry level CR-V in Asia. 155PS/152HP won't rattle anyone but it's something, and that's with 10,6:1 compression ratio... Bump it up a notch and the engine might just eke out 160HP.

In Japan they keep saying it will have the same powertrain as the 2014 Fit but will have 4WD.

We will know in 14 days.

I would have thought for sure it will have an R18 ED engine with a CVT. Putting the 1.5 in it is suicide in this market - and it would have to work so hard its real world economy would be crap. A 6 speed manual would be nice, and with the ED's extra torque would drive very nicely. If a turbo'd 1.6 is further down the road who knows. But it needs at least an R18 ED at kick off. This will sell really well - and for once the claimed production picture actually looks better than the OTT concept.

That might be fine for SE Asia, but the 1.5L(?) Fit engine would be a misstep for this here in the US.

Rumour says that the Urban SUV will/may be called Honda Vezel. Not sure but we're all here to speculate! :)
