The newest 2020 Honda Element is soon expected to hit the dealerships and this time should receive several upgrades. Like the current model, it will offer several types of engines depending on a market while the exterior will be slightly revised in order to keep it fresh and competitive. Inside the cabin, we are expecting some new tech items and new color combinations.
Engine and performance of the 2020 Honda Element
The 2020 Honda Element will come back to the market with the same engine options. So, the base is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine which is capable of making 166 horses and 161 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission and it will be offered with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations. Speaking of the fuel consumption, the front-wheel drive model will get 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel drive layout will be rated at 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
On the other hand, according to the latest news, the new 2020 Honda Element should also offer the same engine which is found in the HR-V model. And it is the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder unit which is capable of making 140 horses. The next option is expected to be a 1.5-liter powertrain which has the output of 190 horses and 180 pound-feet of torque.
The exterior design of the 2020 Honda Element
The 2020 Honda Element will come with the same styling as the current model which has been just refreshed. But, at the same time, it will retain the same boxy look with softer edges. The front fascia will be fitted with the slightly revised grille and new headlights which will be available with LED lighting. As well, the rear end will feature revised taillights with LED lights and revised bumper. So, this time, we are expecting some small revisions which will make it more attractive but it will keep up with its recognizable look.
The interior design of the 2020 Honda Element
The cabin of the 2020 Honda Element will get the same design as before which should be slightly revised to get a more premium and modern look. It will get a two-row seating configuration and the second-row seats can be folded down which, if needed, can be used as the bed. As well, the seats will be upholstered in special fabric which is easy to clean.
Furthermore, the cabin will be very functional and will feature several cup holders and storage pockets. Moreover, when it comes to equipment, the new 2020 Honda Element will get cruise control, a rearview camera, power windows, audio system with four speakers, remote entry, anti-lock brakes, an electronic stability control, and many other features as standard. However, we can expect many other standard and optional features.
