There’s never enough crossovers in this world of sport utility vehicles. That’s why we are getting reports about new models almost every day. Among them, there are also numerous reports that suggest different kinds of a comeback. For example, the 2021 Honda Element has been in talks for a pretty long time and while there is still no official confirmation, many believe this could happen. Simply, there is a lot of reason to see this model in the offer.
The original model was initially pretty popular and that was in the early 2000s when small SUVs weren’t even that popular. Things are completely different and such a unique design would definitely be a big plus for Honda, even though the Japanese manufacturer is already recording some pretty impressive sales numbers with models like CR-V and HR-V. Still, the 2021 Honda Element should be able to attract a completely different type of drivers, those who need a practical vehicle that also looks attractive and unique. If we can trust rumors, this model could hit the market already in the next year.
2021 Honda Element Redesign
When it comes to base design characteristics, we are pretty sure that the 2021 Honda Element won’t be much different than the original. We count on the same approach, which means a small city vehicle that is easy to maneuver but also quite spacious and practical at the same time.
Of course, all this will be achieved thanks to a super boxy appearance, which characterized the original model. The new one wouldn’t be any different and we would see largely the same shape. Still, some changes in size are always possible. The new model might become slightly bigger but we have no doubt that the company will tend to keep this model small and maneuverable.
When it comes to the styling, the 2021 Honda Element would feature a familiar boxy shape, but with a completely new front and rear ends. Of course, the front end would come with most of the new details. Still, we aren’t sure that it would follow the brand’s latest design language. The new model would rather come with something more unique. The same thing goes for the rear end.
Once again, we count on a familiar design approach. This means that the boxy shape will provide plenty of space on the inside, especially when it comes to the cargo area. The amount of legroom will largely depend on the wheelbase, while room for heads definitely won’t be a problem. Still, the key trump of this crossover won’t be numbers, but rather that boxy shape which is highly friendly to large objects.
Of course, the company will put a lot of attention to the dashboard design and overall quality as well. We count on fine materials and a lot of standard equipment. Simply, these things are a must in today’s automotive industry, even among small and affordable crossovers.
2021 Honda Element Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, things seem pretty clear. Of course, the Japanese manufacturer will definitely rely on a 1.5-liter turbo-four, which puts out 190 horsepower. Some sources also suggest the possibility to see a naturally-aspirated unit in the base version. Still, that should be taken with a reserve.
Of course, there is also a chance to see an electrified version, with a hybrid setup. This version would probably use a familiar system that powers Honda Accord, which puts out around 212 horsepower and ensures some quite respectable mpg ratings.
2021 Honda Element Release Date and Price
Despite that the 2021 Honda Element is just a rumor at the moment, some sources suggest it could hit the market already in the next year. Still, take this with a reserve. If the new model arrives, we presume that the base price would go somewhere between 20.000 and 25.000 dollars.
