Looks bold

The Honda Elevate boasts a robust and muscular appearance, exuding strength with its upright stance. The front of the Elevate showcases a vertically-aligned grille with tapered edges, accented by a chrome garnish that extends to the upper edges of the headlamp housings. Adding to the sophisticated styling are sleek LED headlamps and fog lamps housed within triangular enclosures on the front bumper. A silver-colored faux skid plate enhances the SUV’s rugged appeal at the front.

Moving to the side profile, the Honda Elevate maintains its commanding presence, featuring body cladding over the wheel arches and bottom of the door panels. The silver-colored roof rails, chrome-finished rearview mirrors, and 17-inch machined alloy wheels all contribute to its overall stylish look.

At the rear, the Honda Elevate retains its bold design with inverted L-shaped combination tail lamps that incorporate LED inserts, stretching towards the gloss black garnish positioned between them. Functionality is added with the roof-mounted spoiler, rear wiper, washer, and defogger, while the black garnish over the rear bumper and silver-colored faux skid plate enhance the SUV’s rugged and appealing aesthetic.

Honda has also offered a sneak peek into the Elevate’s interior, which showcases a delightful combination of dual-tone black and brown leather upholstery. The cabin exudes modernity with elements like a 7-inch TFT screen in the instrument console, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, and a convenient push start-stop button.

Catering to the preferences of contemporary customers, the Honda Elevate comes equipped with a range of attractive features. These include a single-pane sunroof, a wireless charger for added convenience, a Lanewatch camera to enhance safety, and a Level-2 ADAS suite of safety features to provide advanced driver assistance.
