Honda announced recently that its “Urban SUV Concept” vehicle, a compact vehicle expected to hold a spacious and functional interior with a dynamic profile, all in the body of a small SUV, will be unveiled in January.

This global concept model may influence Honda models to be sold in Europe and other markets. Teaser photos can be seen at www.hondawebcast.com, and the model will see its debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. Honda traditionally uses this major auto industry event to showcase its biggest ideas for the model year. Viewers can watch the unveiling live at www.hondawebcast.com at a time to be determined.

The new model is getting some attention already. Edmunds.com noted earlier this month that, “The Honda Urban SUV Concept may be one of the most significant unveilings at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, as Honda offers an intriguing downsized model with slightly riskier styling than most of the current lineup.”
