They say good things come in small packages, but we'll leave that up to you to decide because at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, Honda had a little special something in store for us.

That, my friends, is the Urban SUV Concept.

While Agent 009 launched a story with the vehicle's FULL press release, I wanted to come back to this vehicle for one second.

That's because everyone knows we've been critical of Honda and its styling in recent years. And that's because it needed to be criticized. While sales are still strong, they're not what they used to be. While folks will likely argue it has to do with the systemic repercussions of a downbeat economy, we think otherwise. For a minute there, Honda's products just weren't capturing buyer's attention.

But for 2013 it's clear things have turned around with the revamped Accord and Civic. Now in Detroit we're seeing our first glimpse at what will likely be a 2014 model year vehicle set to go head-to-head with the Nissan Juke and other small sport-utility vehicles. Its nine inches SHORTER than the CR-V and compare the size of the rear door to the rear luggage area.

This is definitely a small vehicle.

But size doesn't matter, right? THIS is a conversation about looks, appeal and style. That said, we want to know what YOU think of this vehicle's looks. Is Honda's Urban SUV Concept a STUD or a DUD? is the number one site in the world for Auto Show photos.

With other sites you're a spectator but with Auto Spies is like you're THERE!
