The Honda Urban SUV Concept showcased at the Detroit Auto Show
|   Tuesday, January 29, 2013
The Honda Urban SUV Concept is an innovative design and could actually win an award for the most creative name in the segment. The vehicle has been showcased at the Detroit Auto Show and features a reworked exterior with futuristic lines and panels cutting through the body of the vehicle aerodynamically. The C pillar and roof lining looks very familiar and if goes into production, it could signal Honda's entry into a new domain of automotive designing.


The only thing which the Urban SUV Concept retains from the old Honda design is its headlamp structure and even that has been layered out with the use of Daytime Running Lights. The new chrome grille, rear structure, body panels etc are quite interesting and the vehicle has the perfect seducing capability that even critics might find hard to avoid.

The Buick Encore – another entry level SUV Concept – could look like a child's toy if Honda can efficiently launch the Urban SUV exactly as the Concept. However the Encore is aimed at a different customer base even though it is a concept SUV. However, Honda does not want to officially comment on its stand regarding production and the current designing plan on the prototype has not been finalized as well.

Compared to the Honda CR – V, the Urban SUV features smaller dimensions and that is exactly the need of the moment. Large SUVs need large spaces to travel and park – which is a huge disadvantage these days as space crunch has affected most major metros across the globe where people can actually afford a car this huge. The fuel efficiency is also not quite as much and this is another disadvantage considering the tough times.

Keeping all thee in mind, Honda has developed the Urban SUV Concept. Plans are on to unveil a hybrid version of the vehicle and this will be confirmed post the launch of the Urban. The SUV segment was long neglected in America and it is high times its sales pick up. The Urban SUV Concept is basically a cross over design and this is the hot pick of the season.

The interior of the Urban SUV has been revamped and this does not resemble any other vehicle launched previously from Honda. The Nissan Juke is the only vehicle which could actually compete with the Urban so as to say. The smart upholstery on the interior enhances the total image of the vehicle and this makes the vehicle stand out in the crowd. The dash board has been smartly placed and the void color scheme works well with the overall exterior and feel of the vehicle.

Although everything about the vehicle is a concept and as a result it cannot be confirmed if the very same ergonomics will be installed in the vehicle once it comes into production stages. Honda has not cleared the air regarding this point and top officials were unavailable for comment. However, if this vehicle is launched as it is, it could set the foundation for a new league of vehicles.
