Honda is showing off a concept SUV at the 12th Auto Expo 2014 held in India. The concept car is the Honda Vision XS-1 offering sporty styling on the outside with a large interior for hauling lots of people.

The SUV concept has three rows of seats and can seat seven people. The vehicle features a single large sliding door that is like a van. The big thing here is that sliding door opens for the front seats and backseats in one unit.

The profile of the car looks like a coupe with not door handles at all. "The Honda Vision XS-1 is a creative study model which embodies Honda's vision for the future of manufacturing. Based on Honda's original M/M (man maximum, machine minimum) concept*, the Honda Vision XS-1 fuses together two different values, a sporty exterior styling and amazing spaciousness, in the compact body. Furthermore, based on the Honda design concept, "Exciting H Design," Honda's human-centered design concept was embodied in this model," says Honda.
