The concept for the 2018 Honda Element is ready for some while. However, there is no official confirmation about this compact crossover. Fans are already worried, but there is no reason for it. Nevertheless, the platform will come as production model later in 2018, but redesigned Element SUV will make an immediate impact on the market.
This compact vehicle is perfect for city streets, urban area, and heavy traffic. Economical and maneuverable, the 2018 Element is packed with the latest infotainment system and other equipment. This vehicle is not so quick, but its agility is excellent. Also, the price is another advantage, as well as the fuel consumption.
2018 Honda Element Pros and Cons
One of the greatest advantages and strength of the 2018 Honda Element is its engine durability. Previous editions, as well as Honda generally, have a strong and reliable unit under its hood. Also, its design is unique. At the first sight, you might say this is a minivan, but Honda Element is a crossover. Its cargo space is generous. With foldable seats, it can be increased.
On the other hand, the 2018 Honda Element could lack some power. Its small unit is economical but is not creating enough energy for the open road drive. Furthermore, the small SUV, contrary to cargo room, is not so spacious for passengers. They will need more legroom, in the first place.
2018 Honda Element Specs
Under the bonnet of the 2018 Honda Element will be a V-Tec unit. This 2.4-liter displacement is not so powerful. It can develop 150 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of torque. Its fuel consumption is a good side of the crossover. Exact numbers are unknown at the moment, but we believe rating will be around 30 mpg combined. Difference between a drive on highway and city is not huge and this vehicle is going to perform similarly in all conditions. Being a crossover doesn’t mean it is capable to go over obstacles in the off-road ride.
2018 Honda Element Design
The last Element crossover was discontinued in 2011. After that, fans were waiting for seven years to see the new model. Now, the 2018 Honda Element will present modern changes on the model. We will recognize the same old, boxy look of the element. Meanwhile, it gets the latest technology inside and fashion trends outside. The dashboard is clean and neat. Steering wheel will hold control buttons for many features inside the vehicle. The USB port is part of the infotainment system. HondaLink is part of the offer for higher trims of the 2018 Honda Element.
2018 Honda Element Release Date and Price
The 2018 Honda Element will come in the summer. The platform is ready and it is just a matter of time when will it officially debut. We still don’t know about trim levels, but fans can expect many options. For example, Element has always been a stylish and colorful crossover, and we believe that Honda will present many new paint jobs for this SUV.
The price for the 2018 Element is not set yet. However, we believe the tag of $20,000 will hang from the model’s base options.
