The New Dheli Auto Show has been a showcase of compact crossovers, but the Honda Vision XS-1 shows what the next generation of compact and sub-compact crossover can be.

Featuring an eye-catching design, the Vision XS-1 looks a little like Honda’s Urban SUV concept and the Honda Vezel we saw earlier. However, unlike those two vehicles, this one features three rows of seating, and a spiffy sliding door to allow passengers access to all three rows.

With LED headlights and chrome accenting found all over the front-end of this concept, Honda’s “Exciting H” design direction is in full effect. Look inside, and you’ll find a tech-heavy but minimalist approach to interior design.

So far there’s no word on if the Vision XS-1 concept will create a new production vehicle, but we can hope some of the design will trickle down into Honda’s crossover lineup.
