We might call it a coincidence, but Honda and Volkswagen are playing on similar notes. While Volkswagen launched its mid-sized SUV Concept, Cross Blue, Honda also released the amazing compact Urban SUV Concept. Just like the Volkswagen Cross Blue was named the little brother of the Touareg, the Urban SUV Concept also gained the title of being the little brother of the highly popular and amazing Honda CR-V. Want another similarity? Well, both the concepts were launched by the respective companies at the 2013 North American International Auto Show!
As mentioned above, the Honda Urban SUV Concept is supposed to be the little brother of the Honda CR-V, both in terms of price as well as size. Measuring precisely 169.3 inches in length, the Urban SUV Concept is 9 inches shorter than the CR-V. Honda reportedly says that they consider this size perfect for driving a vehicle conveniently in cities as well as on highways without compromising with the comfort and spaciousness that a SUV ought to have. We cannot agree more. The Urban SUV certainly features an optimum size without having any notable and adverse effects on the space inside.
Rumours have it that the company intends to bring the Urban SUV in the markets with its Earth Dreams Engine and Transmission Technology. As the names of this technology suggests, the SUV will produce much less emissions as compared to a regular SUV of the same size. It is highly likely that the Urban SUV would feature a 1500cc I4 engine, which is a characteristic part of the Earth Dreams technology. This engine will further be twinned with a continuously variable transmission technology, and together, these two comprise the entire technology. One can expect a dramatic decrease in the carbon dioxide emission levels of the SUV while the fuel economy of the vehicle will be increased by many folds.
Being a family SUV, the Urban SUV is definitely supposed to offer features that make riding experience comfortable. And that is exactly how it is. Honda has incorporated a number of its original and innovative ideas in the Urban SUV to ensure that the vehicle remains unbeatable. One of our favourite ones among these features is the Centre tank Layout technology. This technology helps in keeping the interior space to a maximum value, and is one of the primary reasons that make the Urban SUV a comfortable choice despite its size. Another such feature is the excellent Magic Seat feature, which allows passengers to configure the seats of the vehicle in many different configurations as is best suited to them depending on the number of passengers and luggage that is to be carried. Honda certainly wants the Urban SUV to be largely comfortable!
Besides these comfort ensuring technologies, the Honda Urban will also include the Next generation Telematics and a much more modernised interior. Not only will the SUV be comfortable, but it will be luxurious as well. Priced below the CR-V, the Urban SUV concept features quite a number of amazing technologies that one might expect only in an expensive vehicle!
