2019 Honda Element

Honda is returning Element, the compact crossover famous for its boxy look. This is one of the vehicles affected by economic crisis. The Japanese company decided to discontinue it in 2011 because of poor selling records. However, the SUV is coming back after a pause. New 2019 Honda Element will be different than its predecessor. Time is changing very fast and the old crossover wouldn’t be compatible with the market. It is even possible for 2019 Element to get only a hybrid drivetrain. This would be a great ad for the return since many buyers will be interested in the electrified vehicle.

The 2019 Honda Element will retain its boxy look. However, it will get a modernization. The SUV will be slightly larger, but it will take a position in the compact class. Inside, Element will borrow technologies from its bigger brothers. Pilot and CR-V are definitely going to help it return with style. Whatsoever, we never had doubts in Honda. The latest infotainment and safety systems are part of the crossover. It is likely that Element will come with the suicide doors, at least according to concept photos. However, these could appear on some trim levels, while the entry-level models can come with the standard entrance.

Under the hood of the 2019 Honda Element will probably be a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder drivetrain. This i-VTEC unit is returning 160 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. Its main advantage is fuel economy. We believe that 2019 Element will have better fuel economy than the Honda HR-V, currently the smallest SUV from the Japanese company. A 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission is going to transfer power to front wheels. It is still unknown what options will Element offer. That includes the all-wheel drive.

2019 Honda Element release date

The concept is ready, and now we have to wait for 2019 Honda Element production. It is not going to happen before the premiere. Fans should see it late in 2018, and the SUV will be available for purchase early in 2019. Price should be very close to its compact sibling, Honda HR-V.  Element will even cost below $20,000.
