Unveiling the Sensational Honda Elevate: The Ultimate Game-Changer in SUVs!

Introduction to the Market
The debut of the Elevate marked Honda’s entry into the highly competitive mid-segment SUV market. Before this, Honda had only two players, the City and the Amaze, which contributed to its success in the Indian market. However, recognizing the growing demand for SUVs among consumers, Honda introduced the Elevate. In this article, we aim to provide you with comprehensive insights into the recently launched Honda Elevate.

Variants and Color Options
The five-passenger SUV is available in four distinct trims: SV, V, VX, and ZX. Prospective buyers can select from a palette of seven exterior colors, including the striking Phoenix Orange Pearl, Obsidian Blue, Radiant Red, Platinum White, Golden Brown, Lunar Silver, and Meteoroid Gray.

Design and Exterior Features
Honda has meticulously crafted the Elevate to appeal to a broad spectrum of Indian consumers, encompassing both the youthful and more mature demographics. The vehicle exudes a commanding presence, accentuated by its finely sculpted bodylines. Key design highlights of this challenger to the Creta include a bold front fascia with a spacious front grille, complemented by a broad bumper that houses the fog lamps. The SUV is adorned with sleek LED headlamps featuring LED daytime running lights positioned above them.

On the sides, the Elevate asserts its presence with roof rails, squared wheel arches adorned with black cladding, all-around disc brakes, and dual-tone 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. At the rear, the Elevate boasts L-shaped inverted LED taillamps, a redesigned rear bumper with a skid plate, a defogger, a rear wiper equipped with a washer, and a shark fin antenna.

Interior Highlights
Inside the cabin, the SUV boasts a luxurious ambiance, showcasing premium materials, soft-touch elements, and a dual-tone dashboard. It incorporates a spacious 10.25-inch floating infotainment touchscreen with wireless mobile connectivity, an eight-inch MID (Multi-Information Display) screen, and voice command support for smartphone connectivity. Additional features include automatic climate control, paddle shifters, ambient lighting, a single-pane sunroof, and a wireless charger.

Engine and Fuel Efficiency
The Honda Elevate retains the same powertrain as the Honda City. It is powered by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC DOHC petrol engine that delivers 119 bhp and 145 Nm of torque. Customers have the option of a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed CVT unit. Notably, Honda claims that the manual transmission variant of the Elevate achieves a fuel efficiency of 15.31 kmpl, while the CVT variant returns an impressive mileage of 16.92 kmpl.
