Honda Motor says its new compact SUV, the HR-V, is scheduled to arrive in winter 2014-2015.

Honda made the announcement at the New York International Auto Show. The automaker disclosed its first images of the HR-V but provided few other details about the vehicle.

The HR-V shares the same platform as the Fit subcompact does, Honda says. Although Honda didn’t disclose pricing or engine specifications, the automaker says the HR-V will be smaller and less expensive than its CR-V, which is a compact SUV that starts at $22,945.
