Honda has confirmed that it will debut a compact Urban SUV Concept at the Detroit Motor Show

We broke the story back in January, and now Honda has confirmed that a small Jazz-based SUV concept will debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2013. When it reaches showrooms - likely in late 2013, after the production car is shown in Tokyo in November - it will sit below the CR-V in the range.

The show car - which is called the Urban SUV Concept - is teased in this darkened sketch, but the proportions and several design details are clear to see. A low coupe-like roof and swollen wheelarches give it a stretched-out sporty look, while the signature line is a bold upturned crease that joins the window line to create a point in the C-pillar.

The front door handle is visible but not the rear, suggesting some sort of hidden handle in the C-pillar is likely. Turbine-style alloys, narrow head and tail lights and a roof spoiler complete the styling.

Honda has released precious few details on the car at this stage, other than to say that it is a global model that will definitely be coming to the UK.

We'll bring you all the details and pictures when the car makes its world debut in Detroit on 14 January next year.
