Honda's JDM Vezel looks like an upgrade of the CR-V, but with more curves. The automaker will show it off, but won't be bringing it to the New York Auto show.

According to spokesman Chris Martin, told us: "We are not planning to show the new compact SUV in NY, but we will reveal some new information about it during our press event. This new vehicle is closely related to the JDM Vezel with some not yet revealed differences for the US market."

The Japanese market Vezel is the production version of the Honda Urban Concept displayed at the 2013 Detroit motor show.

The model is smaller than the CR-V at around 4.3m long and it is offered with a regular 1.5 liter gasoline engine and hybrid version in Japan.
