TORRANCE, California — The Honda Urban SUV Concept, a Honda Fit-based subcompact that targets the Nissan Juke and Fiat 500L, will make its world debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

Honda teased the Honda Urban SUV Concept in a sketch that shows a family resemblance in profile to the Honda CR-V, but with more dramatically sculpted sides.

The Honda Urban SUV Concept is aimed at the U.S. market, a Honda source told Edmunds, but it is expected to be sold in Europe and other markets.

Honda released little information along with the sketch, saying only that the Urban SUV Concept "is a global concept model combining a sporty and dynamic SUV profile with a spacious, functional interior."

The production version is expected to be available in front- and four-wheel drive. No word yet on powertrain specifications or fuel-economy estimates.

Edmunds says: 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.
