2017 Honda Element
Last Honda Element vehicle was launched in 2011. Back then, sales numbers were really poor, and although it got few new chances, this model couldn’t prove itself. Company planned the replacement, but it didn’t happen. After many researches, now, few years later, rumors have appeared about new 2017 Honda Element. It can be again one of the most practical compact crossovers in the market. Although it is small SUV, its storage area is big enough to take around 75 cubic-feet of cargo. New Element could bring excitement to its class once again. But, we are still waiting for confirmation from Honda.
2017 Honda Element engine
It is still unknown which powertrain 2017 Honda Element could use. Information in kept as secret and we can only guess what is planned. Some rumors are speaking of same drivetrain used by last model, but there are lots of modifications to be made on it. A 2.4-l 4-cylinder engine should be improved to 200 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to front wheels, all-wheel drive is optional on higher trims. Transmission mated to engine is a 6-speed automated gearbox, which should improve mileage on the 2017 Element. Last crossover had 21 mpg combined, and now we expect at least 3 or 4 miles per gallon boost.
2017 Honda Element redesign
Only sure thing is that 2017 Honda Element is coming in its traditional boxy look. Completely redesigned interior is expected, as well as parts of its exterior. Contours are similar, with new headlights, grille and wheels taking the spotlight. Nevertheless, hood and roof get new lines for better aerodynamics. More comfortable interior with new seats, dashboard and upholstery is being prepared. Some features, especially infotainment, could be found on other models, and new Element crossover won’t bring some radical innovation, but it is rather there to try to establish its name in compact crossover segment.
In that purpose, new seats are installed, air conditioning is improved, and navigation could be found in upper trims. According to rumors at this point, same trim range will be introduced with 2017 Element, as EX comes as entry-level, and LX as higher trim.
