The Honda Elevate will be offered with a single Engine option – a Naturally Aspirated 1.5 liter, 4 Cylinder Petrol Engine, generating almost 120 Bhp and 145 Nm of Torque. Buyers will have a choice of a CVT Automatic Transmission and a 6 Speed Manual Transmission. Notably, this powertrain mirrors the one found in the Honda City, recognized for its reliability, proven performance, and fuel efficiency. Remarkably, it stands as the most potent Naturally Aspirated Engine in its class.

The Manual Gearbox is a standout combination, positioned perfectly for Driver convenience. Its shift quality is nearly impeccable, characterized by short, effortless throws that engage precisely. The Clutch Pedal operates lightly, though mastering the engagement point while starting from a stop might require some patience.

Honda Elevate SUV: Claimed Mileage 

Claimed Mileage


16.92 Kmpl

CVT Automatic

15.31 Kmpl

The Mileage figures of the Honda Elevate have nothing special to be talked about. In the Manual version, the figures claimed fall back to the competition by a huge margin and the figures of the Automatic versions are almost at par with its main competitors.

But Honda Elevate’s strength lies in its ability to provide a pleasant and comfortable ride, although it might encounter challenges when facing particularly rough road conditions at elevated speeds. Safety prospects are promising due to its Honda City platform, which has already achieved a five-star rating in Asian NCAP tests.

The interior exudes warmth, resembling a cozy study with a fireplace and bookshelves. The Front Seats, borrowed from the Honda City, are plush and comfortable, though positioned a bit low for an SUV. The overall Driving position is Car-like and inviting. The Cabin’s thoughtful design includes Adjustable Steering, Well-placed Gear Shifter, easily accessible Audio and Climate Controls, and numerous convenient Cup and Bottle holders. The homely ambiance is immediately apparent in the Elevate’s interior.

The Elevate’s cabin isn’t as well-equipped as the Seltos’s versions. It’s closer to the Seltos HTX trim with a similar 1.5L Petrol Engine and almost similar Features list. While lacking a Panoramic Sunroof, it features ADAS, unlike the HTX. The Elevate has a Height-Adjustable Driver’s Seat, Single-Zone Climate Control, a Single-Pane Sunroof, and Wireless Charging. The 10.25” Touchscreen Multimedia System is a significant improvement from previous Honda models. However, it falls short compared to rivals. The Reverse Camera resolution needs improvement. The Driver Info System combines Analogue Speedometer with Digital Tachometer, Trip Computer, G-Meter, and Honda Sense (ADAS) shortcuts.

Honda Elevate SUV: Competition 

While not groundbreaking, the Honda Elevate excels in seamlessly integrating into your life, providing value without causing disruptions. It prioritizes comfort with excellent visibility, comfortable seats, and a smooth ride. Though not the fastest, its low and mid-range torque ensures an effortless and relaxing driving experience, suitable for commuting and cruising. It may not be thrilling, but it covers the essentials well, making it a practical choice for those seeking a straightforward, well-rounded vehicle.

In the Indian market, the Honda Elevate will find itself in competition with the Hyundai Creta, new Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun and Skoda Kushaq.
