Honda confirmed that it will bring two new world premieres at the Beijing Auto Show, after a previous leaked document said the Japanese carmaker will launch a production-spec, Chinese-dedicated variant of the Concept D pictured here.
Honda Motor (China) Investment Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned Honda subsidiary in China, has announced its intentions to unveil the production model of an all-new SUV developed on the Concept D prototype, as well as a new Acura compact SUV – which will become the first Acura model to be produced in China.
Both SUVs are developed exclusively for the Chinese market, and although Honda didn’t actually confirm their names, the company has registered the UR-V and CDX monikers, with the latter believed to be Acura’s variant of the HR-V.
Moreover, unlike the Acura-branded compact SUV, Honda’s proposition will allegedly be the car maker’s flagship SUV, with prices expected to range from 250,000 (for the base variant) to 425,000 yuan ($38,400 – $65,200 US dollars).
Mechanical wise, the UR-V will be powered by a naturally aspirated 2.4-litre and a turbocharged 2.0-litre, with a 6-speed automatic transmission as an only option.
