Honda released a sketch today of a concept of a small crossover that would slot in below the CR-V in the automaker's lineup.
The "Urban SUV Concept" will make its world debut in January at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The concept is subcompact in size, likely sharing underpinnings with the Honda Fit, and would be a global vehicle for the automaker.
Honda has invested $800 million to build a new plant in Celaya, Mexico, to make the subcompact Fit in a number of derivatives.
The move will create 3,200 new jobs with the capacity to make 200,000 cars a year, starting in 2014. Adding the Mexican plant will bring Honda's North American capacity to 1.92 million vehicles annually, underscoring the continent as Honda's largest manufacturing base.
