Next up on the 2013 Detroit Auto Show embargo-break-a-palooza: the Honda Urban SUV Concept. Thanks to Indian Autos Blog, we now have the first press shots of the small crossover concept – a vehicle that will someday make it to production, riding on the Honda Fit platform.

It may have some big features – namely, the large headlamps, big wheels, and bold body lines – but the Urban SUV Concept will compete with smaller vehicles like the Nissan Juke or Fiat 500L. Indian Autos Blog reports that both 1.6- an 1.8-liter four-cylinder engines are being speculated for use in the production model, as well as a diesel powerplant for foreign markets.

That's all we know for now, but stay tuned to see the full smattering of official images and details as part of this week's Detroit coverage.

      It's got some good lines. Of course, on the front and back, not a lot of them go together, but sometimes that's how it goes. What is this vehicle supposed to do, other than take sales away from the Nissan Juke? Honda designers, please hear me: we only need one grille per vehicle. We need to be able to see out the back, as well.

          Concepts are always "trying too hard." That's the point. When was the last time you saw a production vehicle that looked like the concept it started as?

        Did you not read the article? It's smaller than the CRV. Even looking at the photos you can see that there's no room behind the rear doors let alone space for a 3rd row seat.

          I didn't at first, no, hence my second comment. If there is no room behind the rear doors, what purpose does this vehicle serve?

      Honda's answer to the Juke. And equally as ugly.
