The upcoming 2021 Honda Element will hit the dealerships later next year. Element is very popular, and it will make a comeback with a redesign. The Japanese manufacturer is looking to improve all categories, including the styling and interior. Furthermore, compact SUV will get numerous new features.
Performance-wise, 2021 Element will offer two engine options. The first option is a 2.4-liter, and second one is a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. Its boxy shape will remain, which is a good thing. This iconic shape is perhaps the highlight of the Element crossover-SUV.
2021 Element Exterior Redesign
The all-new 2021 Honda Element will get a complete redesign. This compact crossover will add some sportiness, and it will look more upscale. Basically, complete exterior will be refreshed. Honda is providing all of the important visual updates. That includes new sharper lines and new front fascia. Interestingly, Element’s boxy shape is present once again. Great news. You must admit it. Element looks very odd and unique. That is perhaps the main reason why so many customers fell in love with the small crossover. However, the 2021 model needs to be upgraded.
The new front fascia comes with a unique grille and LED headlamps. Moreover, fog lights are in the offer this time. The rear part hosts a new bumper, and taillights are finished in a different shape. Furthermore, customers can still load body-colored exterior features. As for the exterior paints, Element is known for its amazing color palette. We don’t know what Honda plans to offer. However, iconic colors such as Cargo Khaki and Royal Blue Pearl will be in the offer, no doubt about it.
The interior of the 2021 Honda Element will get further improvements. The cabin will look modern, and it will get more high-quality materials. Element is a two-row crossover, and it can accommodate up to five passengers. Surprisingly, compact crossover will offer amazing legroom. Whatsoever, Element’s rear-seat legroom is above average for the segment.
We still don’t know how much trim levels will Honda offer. The base LX model is offering standard equipment such as automatic climate control, a 7-inch display, and a four-speaker sound system. Moreover, lane keep assist and cruise control will be optional. If you want more standard gear, you’ll have to opt for EX or higher trim levels.
Standard and Optional Engines
Honda will look to offer two engine options. The first engine is a 2.4-liter that will produce slightly below 200 horses. The 2021 Honda Element will also offer second and optional powertrain. It will be a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that will surely deliver around 220 horsepower. Engines that are rated at or above 200 hp are good for compact vehicles such as Element.
Whatsoever, small crossover weighs only 3418 lbs. The Japanese manufacturer will offer a start/stop system which should provide slightly better fuel efficiency. However, exact fuel economy figures are yet to be announced.
2021 Honda Element Price and Release Date
The price of the base LX model will start at around $23,500. The 2021 Honda Element EX will cost slightly below $30,000. New Element will go on sale later next year. However, some other markets will have to wait for the beginning of 2021.
