Honda has officially unveiled the Urban SUV concept at the North American International Auto Show.

Designed to preview a production model that will be launched in Japan in late 2013, the Urban is a fuel-efficient crossover with an aspirational design. Speaking of the latter, the concept has a rounded appearance which is only interrupted by a questionable front fascia. While the model will surely be toned down for production, the concept has LED headlights, massive alloy wheels and a trunk-mounted spoiler.

Interior pictures were not released, but Honda says the crossover will have a modern cabin with next-generation telematics and a rear seat that can be folded flat to maximize cargo space.

Detailed specifications haven't been released, but Honda said the model will have Earth Dreams Technology and ride on the Global Compact Series platform which currently underpins the City and Fit.
