Honda Elevate is a new midsize SUV that is expected to launch in India in September 2023. It is Honda’s re-entry into the highly competitive compact SUV segment, where it will face rivals like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Astor, Skoda Kushaq and Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara. In this blog post, we will look at the positive and negative aspects of the Honda Elevate SUV and compare it with its competitors.

Honda Elevate Positive & Negative

Positive Aspects

  • Design: The Honda Elevate has a progressive and protective design that blends elegance and ruggedness. It has a large chrome grille, LED headlights and taillights, roof rails, skid plates and 17-inch alloy wheels. The interior is spacious and luxurious, with leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster.
  • Technology: The Honda Elevate comes with Honda Sensing, a suite of advanced safety and driver assistance features that include adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, collision mitigation braking system, blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert. It also has Honda Connect, a connected car technology that offers remote engine start/stop, geo-fencing, vehicle health monitoring and emergency assistance1.
  • Engine: The Honda Elevate is powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 150 PS of power and 250 Nm of torque. It is paired with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission. The engine is refined and responsive, and offers good fuel efficiency.
  • Cargo Space: The Honda Elevate has a large cargo space of 458 litres (under homologation testing), which can be expanded by folding the 60:40 split rear seats. It also has multiple storage compartments and cup holders in the cabin.

Negative Aspects

  • Price: The Honda Elevate is expected to be priced between Rs. 10 lakh and Rs. 17 lakh (ex-showroom), which makes it one of the most expensive compact SUVs in the market. It will have to justify its premium pricing with its features and performance.
  • Competition: The Honda Elevate will face stiff competition from other compact SUVs that have already established themselves in the segment. Some of these rivals offer more variants, more engine options, more features or lower prices than the Honda Elevate.
  • Hybrid Option: The Honda Elevate does not have a hybrid option in India, unlike some of its competitors like the MG Astor and the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara. A hybrid option would have given the Honda Elevate an edge in terms of fuel efficiency and environmental friendliness.
  • 7-Seater Option: The Honda Elevate is a 5-seater SUV, which limits its appeal for large families or customers who need extra seating capacity. Some of its rivals like the Hyundai Creta and the Kia Seltos offer a 7-seater option that increases their versatility and practicality.

Conclusion

The Honda Elevate is a promising SUV that offers a stylish design, a powerful engine, a spacious cabin and a host of technology features. However, it also has some drawbacks like a high price tag, a lack of hybrid and 7-seater options and a tough competition from other established players in the segment. The success of the Honda Elevate will depend on how well it can differentiate itself from its rivals and justify its premium positioning in the market.
