Lots of reports about the 2019 Honda Element revival has been circulating on the network for years. Many car experts believe that is for a good reason. The fancy crossover has been in production for several years. The original model came in 2003. At that time, this was a very unusual design approach. Something that puts practicality on focus in such stylish way is definitely something that isn’t common even these days. Initial models were very successful, with pretty solid sales numbers and recognition among car experts.
However, sales started to decline, so the model was eventually discontinued in 2011. Although final years weren’t that successful, this model left such deep mark in the automotive industry that we are constantly hearing about the new version for more than seven years. Moreover, these reports became more intense in the past few years and many believe that there must be a good reason for such a situation.
Will there be a new Honda Element?
The fact is that even if these rumors turn out to be true, we probably won’t see the new version of this crossover so soon. Still, we will continue to use the 2019 Honda Element in this article.
2019 Honda Element Redesign
We have ended with all reliable details about the new model if there was ever any of them. Anyway, the following lines are nothing more than rumors, collected from various sources that can be found on the network.
So, let’s start with the most basic characteristics of the Honda Element 2019. That would be the platform. Without any doubt, the upcoming crossover will adopt all of the latest design solutions and technologies from Honda. Considering the original model’s size, we have no doubt that the new version will feature most similarities with compact cars from the company’s lineup, Civic
At this point, we can only presume that theHonda Element 2019 would keep its famous boxy shape. Of course, it won’t be the same as before, but we count on a shape that closely reasseblmes the original. There are many good reasons for that. First of all, that is the only reason why Honda should re-introduce this model. Otherwise, there is simply no place in the company’s lineup. Also, it is hard to say how much will the new model follows the company’s design language.
The original model was quite unique, but it features front end that has a lot of common design solution with some models from that era, particularly with the first-generation Ridgeline. These days, pretty much all Honda models stick to the same design language, so it wouldn’t be hard to presume how the 2019 Element’s face would look like.
2019 Honda Element Interior
This is the area where the original model was pretty strong, so we expect the same from the new one. Practically has always been on focus with this model, so we have no doubt that 2019 Honda Element Interior will stick to the same goal. Therefore, we count on a super-boxy layout, especially at the rear end, which will allow easy ins and outs of large objects. Moreover, we count on slide rear doors as well. The base cabin layout will be characterized by lots of cargo volume and plenty of headroom, due to its shape. On the other side, we count on a pretty common dashboard design, similar to models like CR-V, Pilot etc.
2019 Honda Element Engines
Most likely, the 2019 Honda Element would come with a well-known 2.4-liter unit in its base version. This engine delivers around 180 horsepower. Count on an optional 1.5-liter turbo engine as well, with a max output of 190 horses and significantly improved fuel economy. Some reports suggest a hybrid version as well. In this case, we expect the same system that powers the Accord Hybrid. It is based on a four-cylinder engine but gets help from two electric motors, for a total output of 212 horsepower and pretty amazing mpg ratings.
2019 Honda Element Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, this crossover is just a rumor at this point and that we haven’t heard a single word from the official. Eventually, we could make some rough estimation about the 2019 Honda Element price, which would probably start at 25.000 dollars.
