New Honda Urban SUV Concept: Styling and Design
Honda says the Urban SUV Concept features “aspirational design” and “sophisticated styling,” and we would agree. Compared to a homely CR-V, the Urban SUV Concept is gorgeous, proving that people with genuine design talent toil in Torrance.
Unfortunately, as is Honda tradition, by the time the Urban SUV Concept rolls down an assembly line on what are sure to be undersized wheels, all the cool stuff will be erased, leaving nothing but that unmistakable swoosh on the side and the trick hidden rear door handles in the rear roof pillar.
There is potential for redemption, however. Honda says the production version of the Urban SUV Concept will have the same Magic Seat design as the Fit hatchback. If you’ve ever had the chance to live with a Fit, you know it really is a Magic Seat. And it means the Urban SUV Concept will carry more stuff, and a greater variety of stuff, than you might ever guess.
