Honda Elevate

Born out of the concept of ‘Urban Freestyler,’ the Honda ELEVATE is crafted to captivate auto enthusiasts across the globe. It has been developed by the Honda R&D Asia Pacific Centre in Thailand and is designed to impress those who seek performance and style.

In an impressive feat, India is set to take the wheel as the pioneer in manufacturing and selling the highly anticipated all-new Honda SUV Elevate on a global scale. Unveiled on June 6 at a world premiere event in the heart of the nation, Delhi, this cutting-edge SUV is poised to make its mark worldwide.

Interestingly, Honda also states that the name Elevate functions as a backronym, with its letters symbolising 'empowerment, liberation, exploration, versatility, aspiration, transformation, and evolution!' 

Expected to launch in September 2023, the Elevate is powered by a 1.5L i-VTEC DOHC petrol engine, mated to a 6-speed MT and a CVT. Boasting a commanding exterior, this SUV’s design oozes confidence and style. 

Following Honda’s philosophy of maximising space, the Elevate offers an incredibly spacious cabin with ample head and knee room, and an impressive cargo capacity of 458 litres. Inside, you’ll also find a 7-inch high-definition full-colour TFT metre cluster, a floating-type 10.25-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) HD touchscreen display audio system with Optical Clear Adhesive (OCA), and a wireless smartphone charger. 

Featuring plush brown leatherette upholstery on the inside and an impressive array of single-tone and dual-tone colour options for the exterior, the Elevate ensures a striking presence wherever you go.

The Elevate boasts a distinctive and stand out styling that sets it apart from the crowd. With a clean design language emphasising straight lines over curves, it exudes an ageless charm. The front fascia is bold, featuring a straight and squared-off face accentuated by a commanding grille. While the side profile may resemble a stretched-out hatchback, the overall design remains clean and appealing to a wide audience.

Built on the City platform, the Elevate shares its solid build quality. Although panels show slight flex, overall consistency in gaps is evident. Additionally, the Honda Elevate's unloaded ground clearance stands at 220 mm, providing ample clearance for everyday driving. Its off-road performance also impresses, as the car navigates without scraping and takes on even the most challenging driving conditions.
