Wholly-designed by Honda Brazil R&D

This year's Sao Paolo International Motor Show will see Honda reveal an all-new crossover. With only a few weeks left before the motor show, the automaker recently revealed a design sketch of the WR-V (Winsome Runabout Vehicle).

According to Honda, the new compact SUV was developed by Honda Brazil R&D that features a 'tough and urban' design. The automaker added that the vehicle will be aimed at people who enjoy active lifestyles that want a compact utility vehicle.

Based on the sketch, the WR-V gets wraparound headlights, prominent front grill, black wheel lip moldings and a sleek roofline. Other details about the car will be revealed during the 2016 Sao Paolo International Motor Show.

To date, Honda only plans to offer the WR-V in Brazil and in other South American countries. When revealed, the WR-V may become the direct competitor of the Nissan Kicks.

The 2016 Sao Paolo Motor Show will run from November 10 – 20, 2016.
