The Honda Urban SUV will be built in China from 2014 by the Guangzhou-Honda joint venture, and it will be launched on the China car market in late 2014. The Honda Urban debuted as a concept on the Detroit Auto Show in January. The production version will be called Honda CR-U.
The Honda Urban/CR-U is based on the same platform as the Honda Fit that is already in production at Guangzhou-Honda. The Honda Urban/CR-U will also be built in Mexico for North American markets. The Chinese variant will be powered by 1.5 and 1.5 turbo petrol engines. The CR-U will compete with fine cars such as the Nissan Juke and Peugeot 2008; small-size SUV’s with a premium look and feel.
