Honda teases new small Fit-based CUV Concept for 2013 Detroit Auto Show
 Date: December 11, 2012 11:08
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Honda Press Release
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


Honda CEO Takanobu Ito dropped several hints last year around the time of the Tokyo Motor Show that Honda was interested in building something to challenge Nissan's small Qashqai CUV (known as Dualis in Japan and Australia) which has been selling well in Europe. Just over a year later, Honda will be showing its global Fit-based CUV concept at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. This new CUV will be sold in the USA, as will a new Fit-based sedan.

Following is the press release as well as Honda's concept art.

12/11/2012 - TORRANCE, Calif.

An all-new Honda compact "Urban SUV Concept" vehicle will make its world debut in January at the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

The Urban SUV Concept, teased in a sketch released today, is a global concept model combining a sporty and dynamic SUV profile with a spacious, functional interior. The concept will be introduced during Honda's NAIAS press conference, which will also be broadcast live via a webcast at hondawebcast.com.
