Honda Elevate will soon lock horns with a many successful mid-size SUVs such as the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, among others.
The upcoming Honda Elevate will be based on the City sedan and will borrow a lot of elements. Honda wishes to expand its India portfolio by entering one of the fastest-growing segments. However, achieving success in the mid-size SUV segment won’t be easy simply because the potential buyers already have a lot of options to choose from. All major carmakers in the country have a model in this category. Therefore, Honda might be late to this mid-size SUV party, but it looks like it will come all guns blazing.

5 Reasons to Wait for Honda Elevate over City
1. SUV Bodystyle
First and foremost, the Elevate is a mid-size SUV, while the City is a mid-size sedan.

2. Possibly Higher Resale Value
Now, this might be a slightly confusing aspect for a lot of people. As mentioned previously, the popularity of SUVs is at an all-time high. Going forward, this trend is likely to continue. That means that Elevate will be more popular in the used car market than City. Hence, the resale value of Elevate is going to be higher.
3. Novelty Value
The City has been around in our market for ages. Even the current-gen model is around 3 years old now. On the other hand, the Elevate will be a brand-new product in the market. Therefore, people would find more appeal in owning something new as compared to a product that has existed for years. That is another point in favour of Elevate.
4. More Practical
SUVs are bound to possess a higher ground clearance and large luggage compartments and we have no reason to believe that it won’t be the case with Elevate either. On top of that, the higher seating position gives a commanding driving position to the driver and an airier cabin feel for the passengers. It is a well-known fact that SUVs are more practical than any other body shape.

These are the top 5 reasons why Honda Elevate might look more enticing to you when compared to the City.
