Honda has taken a different approach to the new Elevate’s exterior design. It’s got a more squarish, upright look. Honda has gone for a muscular, bold yet classy design for the Elevate. The front end has a big rectangular grille with black accents. The grille gets Chrome embellishments and there are LED headlamps as well. Honda Elevate has fog lights on either sides of the bumper and gets a silver skid plate too.
On its side profile, the Elevate still has a refined look. It gets black cladding on the front fenders, chrome around the door handles and on the lower window trim. To really show off the side profile, you can get 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. At the back, the Elevate has LED taillights in the shape of a boomerang. The middle part of the taillights has Black finish with a Honda logo in the center. The lower bumper looks pretty basic and is mostly black, but it does come with a silver skidding plate.
Interior And Features
The Elevate has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a midsize SUV, like a free-standing 10.25-inch touchscreen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is also a 7-inch semi-automatic instrument cluster. The only downside is that the Elevate only has a single-pane sunroof, while all the other SUVs in its segment have panoramic roofs. The only other mid-size SUV that doesn’t have a sunroof is the Citroen C3 Aircross.
Honda Elevate also has wireless charging, and rear parking cameras on offer. The manufacturer is also adding its ADAS suite to the Elevate, which includes functions like collision mitigation braking, lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise, lane-keeping help, road departure warnings, and automatic high beam. Other compact SUVs with ADAS on sale currently are MG Astor and Kia Seltos facelift.
Underpinned by Honda’s global Small Car platform, the Elevate is the same as the City in terms of engine specifications and power. The 4-cylinder engine’s 121hp and 145Nm are channeled to the front wheels, via a 6-speed manual or a 7-step CVT. There are no hybrids on offer currently. The SUV also has the best ground clearance out of the bunch- 220mm. The Elevate is slightly bigger than its rivals in wheelbase and boot space offered.
