The Elevate also includes front and rear faux skid plates and body cladding to enhance its SUV-inspired appeal.

Inside the cabin, Honda offers dual-tone black and brown leather upholstery, complemented by satin silver and faux wood inserts. Modern features adorn the interior, such as a 7-inch TFT screen in the instrument console, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, and a push start-stop button.

The Honda Elevate’s cabin is further equipped with rear AC vents, a single-pane sunroof, and a wireless charger.

The Honda Elevate will be exclusively available with the 1.5-liter four-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine found in the City model. This engine, paired with a choice of a 6-speed manual or a CVT gearbox, generates 121 PS of maximum power and 145 Nm of maximum torque. The Honda Elevate will compete with other midsize SUVs such as the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, MG Astor, and the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross.
