Honda introduced a new “Urban SUV Concept” at the Detroit Auto Show Monday. This new, yet-to-be-named concept car one of the top attractions of Monday’s show.

From what we see, it appears to based off the Honda Fit platform, and will be slotted below the already popular Honda CR-V, in terms of its size and price.

“No one has had greater success with small cars than Honda, and this Urban SUV Concept will create new value in the growing small-SUV segment,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales at American Honda, in a release. “With the continued expansion of our North American manufacturing operations, we expect fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive ‘small’ cars to play a key role in meeting the needs of our customers in the U.S.”

According to Honda, this “Urban SUV Concept” is suppose to combine everything that makes Honda great — fuel efficiency and fun driving style. It’s targeting the younger, city living driver who needs more space than an Accord or Civic, but doesn’t want to sacrifice that great fuel economy. Measuring 169.3 inches long, the Urban SUV Concept is nine inches shorter than the Honda CR-V, making it the ideal size for navigating both crowded city streets and open mountain roads.

This Urban Concept will include Honda’s new Earth Dreams Technology featured in its most popular redesigns.
