Today, September 4, marks a significant milestone as Honda Cars India introduces the highly anticipated Elevate SUV to the Indian market. This launch sets the stage for intense competition among SUV enthusiasts, pitting the Elevate against heavyweight rivals such as the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Grand Vitara, and Toyota Hyryder. Honda's entry into the compact SUV segment is poised to make a substantial impact, and eager customers are eagerly awaiting pricing details and availability announcements.
The Honda Elevate SUV becomes the third entrant in Honda's India lineup, joining the ranks of the popular Honda Amaze and the iconic Honda City. Unveiled earlier this year in June, this SUV has already captured the attention of prospective buyers who've been keenly participating in the pre-booking process.
Under the hood, the Elevate packs a punch with the same engine found in the Honda City – the L15B 1.5-liter i-VTEC petrol engine. Customers can choose between two transmission options: a 6-speed manual and a CVT automatic gearbox, ensuring a diverse range of driving experiences to suit individual preferences.
When it comes to exterior styling, the Honda Elevate SUV offers a palette of seven single-color variants to choose from: Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Obsidian Blue Pearl, Radiant Red Metallic, Golden Brown Metallic, Meteoroid Gray Metallic, and Phoenix Orange Pearl. For those seeking a more distinctive look, there are three dual-tone options available, exclusively for the top-end variants: Phoenix Orange Pearl with Crystal Black Pearl Roof, Platinum White Pearl with Crystal Black Pearl Roof, and Radiant Red Metallic with Crystal Black Pearl Roof.
Safety takes center stage with the inclusion of Honda Sensing features. This advanced system utilizes a wide-angle camera mounted on the windshield's apex to provide drivers with enhanced accident avoidance capabilities, further reinforcing Honda's commitment to passenger safety and well-being.
