Honda Urban SUV at the Tokyo Motor Show

Honda, the Japanese automaker will unveil the production version of its Urban SUV at the Tokyo Motor Show. Based on the 2014 Jazz platform, the vehicle will also make its way to the Indian car market by 2015. Meanwhile, the patent images of this mini SUV have been leaked on web, giving the idea what could be the design of the SUV when it will be put into production. 


The upcoming Honda Urban SUV will ride on the Global Compact Series platform, the same one which was used by the company for the outgoing City and Fit, and the SUV will use the Earth Dreams Technology.


The patent images of the compact SUV shows that it source most of its styling cues from the concept showcased earlier this year. It will have an appealing body design with curves, low roofline and a broad stance. The Honda Urban SUV will be more than 4 meter (4300mm) in length, but it will be much smaller (about 228mm) than the company's flagship SUV CR-V. At the time of the concept's unveiling, the company described the vehicle as "Dynamic and sporty, but spacious and functional". 
For global markets, the Urban SUV is likely to be powered by the same engine that powers the Jazz, and is expected to get the Civic's 1.6-litre diesel engine
