Of these, the orange, white, and red are also available with a dual-tone Crystal Black Pearl finish, albeit only on the top-spec ZX trim.

    The Elevate comes quite well-equipped even in its base SV trim, covering all the essentials, and only misses out on a touchscreen infotainment system.

    Honda Elevate rivals

    The Elevate rivals the Hyundai CretaMaruti Suzuki Grand VitaraToyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, MG Astor, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, and the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross. Compared to other midsize SUVs that get naturally aspirated petrol engines or lower-spec turbo-petrol units, the top-spec Elevate is the most affordable of the lot; only the Skoda Kushaq and Volkswagen Taigun have a higher starting price though.
