The Honda Elevate, the company’s newest and most advanced crossover utility vehicle (SUV) worldwide, was introduced today by Honda Cars India Limited, a prominent maker of premium cars in India. The car will be available at an introductory starting price of INR 10,99,900 (ex-showroom, Delhi), with the top variant costing INR 15,99,900 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Starting today, dealerships nationwide will begin receiving Elevate vehicles in their inventory. Elevate debuted on the international stage at the beginning of June of this year.
Customers who lead active lifestyles are the target demographic for the Honda Elevate, which was developed with the overarching notion of an “Urban Freestyler” in mind. The all-new Honda R&D Asia Pacific centre in Thailand is responsible for developing the Elevate, designed to fulfil the needs and expectations of younger customers interested in prestige, comfort, and an active lifestyle. The Elevate successfully marries fashion with function with its measurements of 4312 millimetres in length, 1790 millimetres in width, 1650 millimetres in height, 2650 millimetres in wheelbase, and a ground clearance of 265 millimetres.
The Elevate is powered by a 1.5L i-VTEC DOHC gasoline engine that produces 89 kW (121 PS) of power and 145 Nm of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed Manual Transmission and a 7-speed Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for a driving experience that is both smooth and enjoyable. The Elevate offers fuel efficiency of 15.31 kmpl and 16.92 kmpl, respectively. The Honda Elevate can use E20 material, which refers to petrol that contains up to 20% ethanol.
The exterior design of the Honda Elevate is characterised by a front fascia, sharp character lines, and a distinctive rear layout that commands a formidable road presence. This design gives the Honda Elevate a bold and manly appearance. The interior design exemplifies an aspirational spirit, comfort, functionality, and a safe cabin. The Honda Elevate has an exceptionally roomy cabin that adheres to the company’s philosophy of “Man Maximum and Machine Minimum.” This philosophy has resulted in the Elevate’s class-leading wheelbase, considerable headroom, knee room, legroom, and the best cargo area in its segment.
The distinctive front appearance of Elevate has narrow and pointed headlights. It has full LED projector headlamps, LED DRLs, LED Turn Indicator, LED taillamps, and Two-tone finish diamond cut R17 Alloy Wheels.
Honda Elevate’s cargo space is 458 litres. The interior cabin includes a 17.78-centimetre (7-inch) high-definition full-color TFT metre cluster, a new floating type 26.03-centimeter (10.25-inch) In-Plane Switching (IPS) High-Definition (HD) resolution LCD touch-screen display audio, and a Wireless Smartphone Charger. In addition, the cabin features a sumptuous brown leatherette upholstery with soft-touch pads on the dashboard and door trims.
