Honda is currently extensively testing the Elevate for its India launch. Now the midsize SUV was spotted testing in Japan too.
Future Honda Models To Come Equipped With ADAS
As per reports, every new car and SUV by Honda will come equipped with the firm’s ADAS tech, called Honda Sensing. The City, with the facelift, already comes with ADAS tech on both manual and automatic gearboxes. And now we expect future models to follow the same route. The City gets Honda Sensing tech on all trims other than the base SV trim. Thus, the Elevate too, could skip ADAS tech on the base trim. Honda is currently readying the third-generation Amaze for a global debut in 2024. Chances are high that it will also get Honda’s ADAS suite.
Honda’s ADAS suite comes with a slew of features. This includes, collision mitigation braking system, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control,road departure warning, lane keep assist, and automatic high beam assist.
Honda Elevate Design Highlights
The upcoming Honda midsize SUV will get SUV looks such as a strong nose and upright proportions. The Elevate will also get LED headlamps for the top-spec variants. Meanwhile the entry-level and mid-spec variants might get standard, halogen headlamps. The rear will get a slightly raked design with a thick C-pillar. The Elevate will most likely comes with a single-pane sunroof, Honda Elevate expected powertrain
Upon launch, the Elevate will arrive with a 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine. But, it is expected to get a hybrid powertrain later. The petrol engine will be the same as the one we see on the Honda City, which makes 121 HP and 145 Nm of torque. Gearbox options includes, either a 6-speed manual or a CVT.
