Honda has teased us with peek-a-boo pictures of its Urban SUV Concept and, while we liked what we saw, we were really excited to see this short video by CNET showcasing the sleek looking compact SUV at the Detroit Auto Show recently.
See the video HERE.
As the video takes us through an abbreviated two minute tour of this silver bullet with LED lights, we were pleased to see the versatility of the inside of the vehicle. The Urban SUV will regularly be able to seat five, but the back seats fold down flat to provide a lot of storage space (perfect for transporting all those things that urbanites transport). In fact, the commentator drew a very fair comparison of the Urban SUV to the popular Honda Fit (“on steroids”) that has the same kind of versatility. However, the Urban SUV is quite bit taller than the Honda Fit, so you’ll be able to get even more urban stuff in there.
I was surprised to hear that Honda’s Urban SUV is nine inches shorter than the it’s older sibling in the compact SUV family, the Honda CR-V. I surely doesn’t look nine inches shorter and with the ability to seat five AND those fold-down seats, we’re betting it doesn’t feel nine inches shorter.
