    NAIAS: Honda plans to tout subcompact car-based SUV concept

    Honda plans to tout subcompact car-based SUV concept
    Automotive News
    December 11, 2012
    by Mark Rechtin


    Honda plans to unveil a subcompact car-based SUV -- smaller than the CR-V crossover -- at the Detroit auto show in January.

    Given that Honda plans to build a Fit-based crossover from its Mexico plant in 2014, this concept likely will preview what that vehicle will resemble.

    In a release, Honda said the vehicle "is a global concept model combining a sporty and dynamic SUV profile with a spacious, functional interior."

    Honda declined to give further details.

    makes me think of the Buick Envision. That shot of it looks good. I'm sure Honda can mess it up and make it ugly though.

    THIS! I think the Encore is a great idea, just wish they offered a Chevy Gamma CUV, but I know the Theta Equinox is moving to Delta, but there is still room.

    ...right?

    No Acura version?
    Did you know that the Northeast corridor produces 20% of the nation's GDP with 17% of the population on 2% of the nation's land area?

    Just what the world needs. Another small, car based crossover.

    The photo makes it look like it has the Mark of Zorro

    I keep looking at pictures of the Buick Encore and while it looks nice and classy, I still wish they offered a more rugged Chevy or GMC version. I really want to get a compact SUV with good MPG and currently there are only three in America, the Buick Encore, the Mini Countryman, and Nissan Juke. If the Trax came to America, I would be so happy.
    I may be on the side of angels, but do not mistake me for one.

    The picture shown looks nice (not sure if it is actually a teaser shot or something else). But we know whatever Honda actually produces wont look nice like it's concept car.

    It looks nice. Those wha are calling it a Traxx competitor should look closely. It looks like it fits Acura's design language more than lower tier Honda's.

    I like that swoopy side crease and how it melds with the C/D pillar.

    Its called the Accord Coupe, and unlike the Prelude, you can get it with a V-6, a stout one at that.

    GM needs to have the Trax. Simple as that. They could of been the first in this super small segment at this price in a long time but nope.
