Honda Jazz Crossover

  • Honda announced that it was not going to sell the fourth-gen Jazz / Fit in the United States, concentrating on trying to sell as many of its small HR-V crossovers as possible.
  • The company has taken its popular and reliable Jazz hatchback and converted it to a proper crossover. This Jazz Crosstar concept is based on a hybridised Jazz platform, with Dal electric motors supplementing the performance of its 1.5-litre petrol engine. It is also the reason you’ll notice the peculiar dual-grille bumper design.

The compact crossover market sector is getting increasingly crowded, and while the Nissan Juke is still the more striking choice, other possibly better rivals are already on the market, or on their way. After the recently-revealed Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008 and Vauxhall/Opel Mokka, we now bring you the first images of what Honda thinks a compact crossover should look like.

Called Urban, the Honda compact SUV/crossover looks quite modern and very bold in its styling, with its purposeful stance, aggressive oversized headlights and imposing grille. It previews an all-new model from the Japanese automaker, which will be based on the same underpinnings as the highly-successful Jazz/Fit supermini.
Not much else is known about it, other than the fact that it will be fully revealed tomorrow at the North American International Auto Show. It is not set to make its market debut before 2015, by which time the newly-revealed Captur, 2008 and Mokka will be on the verge of getting a facelift, and would have had time to sit on the market, and plant themselves into the heads of prospective buyers.
The production version of the Urban will face an even tougher market, two years from now, and since Honda has not made a crossover this small, it may struggle to carve its own niche. Still, if it`s competent enough, and if it they don`t detract too much from the overall bold styling of the concept, it may still be a worthy contender.
