Honda is finally coming to its senses in the Indian market. People have been waiting for it to bring a proper SUV, and it has finally launched the Honda Elevate. The Elevate has received decent reviews till now due to its design and features. Yesterday, Honda also revealed the pricing, completing the final puzzle of the jigsaw. Still, one question everyone has is, what about its safety score? So GNCAP hasn’t tested the car yet, so we can’t be sure about its rating. Still, we will try to uncover what it can get. In today’s article, let’s talk about Honda Elevate safety.
Honda cars have traditionally performed decently in crash tests at the GNCAP. The Honda Jazz and Honda City 4th generation scored 4-star in the old protocols of GNCAP. So the City 5th generation should also do decently. Just that Honda will need to do some changes for the newer protocols. Why are we talking about the City? The Elevate and City are based on a similar platform and so we can expect similar ratings. At the media event, Honda claimed that it has internally tested the Elevate and has done satisfactory in all tests. Still, these are brand statements, and Elevate will have to prove itself in the upcoming Bharat NCAP. We don’t think GNCAP will be testing the Elevate as it will be ending its ‘SafercarsforIndia’ initiative due to the emergence of BNCAP. We hope Elevate performs well and help improve safety standards in the country.
Honda Elevate safety features
The Honda Elevate also comes with several active and passive safety features. It comes with Honda Sensing, which is ADAS. It has ADAS features like lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, auto high beam, lane departure warning, autonomous emergency braking and Leading vehicle departure exit. Other safety features include 6-airbags, hill start assist, vehicle stability assist, ABS + EBD and ISOFIX.
Elevate as a product.
The Elevate comes with a boxy design similar to global Honda SUVs. Overall we have an upright grille, sharp-looking headlamps, L-shaped tail lamps etc. What about the specifications? The Elevate comes with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine capable of producing 119bhp and 145Nm of torque. Honda claims that it can deliver a mileage of 15.31 with the MT gearbox and 16.92 on the CVT gearbox. Feature-wise, the Elevate comes with a 10.25-inch infotainment system, electric sunroof, wireless phone connectivity, a lane watch camera, and connected car technology. What about the pricing? The pricing of the Honda Elevate starts from Rs 13.22 lakh and goes to Rs 19.22 lakh (on-road, Mumbai). Overall the Elevate seems like a no-nonsense product and should do decently in the market.
