According to a recent report, Acura is considering an entry-level crossover which could be based on the Honda Fit.

Details are limited but speculation suggests the company could offer the production version of the SUV-X concept in North America. The model was designed primarily for China but Honda spokeswoman Yuka Abe told Automotive News the company is considering additional markets for the vehicle.

Honda Vezel powertrain chief engineer Naohisa Morishita went one step further and told the publication "There is a market for it worldwide, not just in China." He went on to say "Personally, I think Acura needs it."

It remains unclear when the model could arrive but the production version of the SUV-X concept is slated to go on sale in China in 2016.
