Made-in-India Honda Elevate launched in South Africa

The Honda Elevate is offered in two variants with prices starting at approximately Rs 15.92 lakh.

Honda has launched the Elevate in South Africa. The SUV is manufactured in India and exported to the country.

In South Africa, the Honda Elevate is available in two variants: Comfort and Elegance, with prices starting at R 3,69,900, which is approximately Rs 15.92 lakh.

In terms of its design, the South Africa-spec Elevate looks identical to the one sold in India. The SUV has a large, upright grille up front flanked by a set of LED headlights and stylish L-shaped LED taillights.

The Elevate gets an all-black interior with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, a digital instrument cluster and a wireless charger. The South African version misses out on a 10.25-inch touchscreen and ADAS that is available on the India-spec car.

The Elevate is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces 119 BHP and 145 Nm. The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or a CVT.
