After a gap of four years, Japanese company Honda, is all set to bring back one of its most coveted models for the upcoming year. Going by the name of 2017 Honda Element, this vehicle is a car enthusiast’s dream come true as it offers top of the line features that is largely unfound anywhere else. This unconventional vehicle, even though not widely popular because of it’s what we might call “nerdy design”, enjoys a niche’ fan base. For the next release, Honda has implemented changes to its exterior, interior features, and is set to provide a better powertrain than ever before.
2017 Honda Element Engine and Performance
The 2017 Honda Element boasts of a superior engine than its predecessor with a 2.4 litre V-TEC 4-cylinder unit with lots of implemented changes over its previous iteration. This engine will be able to produce around 150 hp and 165 lb-ft of maximum torque. Even though this setting might not look like a huge boost on paper, it is certainly a great deal considering that this is a family vehicle. Fuel economy rates have been recorded to be 20 mpg and 25 for city and highway drives respectively. Information regarding transmission system and drive will most likely be revealed later since release is still quite far away.
2017 Honda Element Exterior and Interior Modifications
Speaking of the exterior, this car will have a refreshed look that has been implemented to make it more suitable for modern-day preferences. As time progresses, it is only natural that people would want something different; Honda is giving people just that. Changes of 2017 Honda Element SUV includes modified bumpers, new LED headlights, Xenon fog lights and a slightly tapered front grille design that adds to this model’s elegance. You will be surprised to know that a 17 inch alloy wheel is being used this time around. Better wheels almost equal to improved performance and better grip.
This unorthodox SUV will offer a revamped interior decor theme that is reminiscent of concept models and sporty accents. The cabin has got slightly bigger thus allowing every passenger to sit comfortable with their arms and legs stretched out. Its black and yellow theme works flawlessly to create an ambience of excitement, accompanied by equal level of comfort. There will be a new LCD screen displaying necessary information, Power steering, and a magnificent audio system to keep the blues at bay.
Making the 2017 Honda Element ideal for safety are features like airbags, Cruise control, parking sensors, Navigation, etc. In addition, there will also be USB and Bluetooth functionality to incorporate smart phone features. Satellite radio will allow you to tune in to some of the world’s best radio stations wirelessly.
2017 Honda Element Price and Release Date
Even though no concrete details have been made available as of now, experts in this field are expecting the 2017 Honda Element to cost somewhere around $30,000 for its base version; no doubt that higher trim levels will cost more. You will be able see this car in showrooms by the end of 2016.
Is the Honda Element really coming back? If so, when?
Funny, haven’t heard anything from Honda on this and it’s already late October ? If they do bring it back they need to make it a hybrid ! Love my 2010 AWD Element but it’s not gas friendly
The answer is NO
This is a fake website who ever is behind this site needs to stop playing with people you sick fuck.
Don’t necessarily think the f word is appropriate but people need not to believe everything they hear and do some follow up research . Stupid is as stupid does and you just can’t fix stupid !
I don’t know if this website is fake or not, they do make the Honda Element just not here.
Thank you thank you thank you, Honda. Best car you ever made, you just never knew how to market it. I will buy the first one off the line.
Thank you thank you My wife and I cant wait to buy two of these we have bin holding out for this news for some time thank you.
I owned a blue 2006 Honda element and it was by far the greatest vehicle I have ever owned. Sadly I needed a daily driver that can also tow a race car. I had to let the Honda go. My fantasy is a Honda element with v6 power and towing capability. I realize that the new Ridgeline would fulfill my needs but the element is so versatile! Make it a 4 x 4 that can tow and I would buy a brand-new vehicle for the first time in my life. It would be the ultimate family/vacation/work vehicle.
I love my Element!! Those of us with them LOVE them. Please send me info on the new one. Are they more energy efficient? Does the backseat fit three passengers? That would be a bonus.
I liked my 2004 Element a lot, but after 9 years, I traded it in for something newer which I just don’t like as well. I might consider a new Element in a few year.
Hope someone sneaks in a 6 speed manual.
I can’t wait. But, yes I will wait!!! My Element is a 2004 manual transmission. I love it, but it has some issues.
My 2004 Honda Element burned up today. When will the 2017 model come out?
I have a 2004 Honda Element and just love it. basic model with the rubber floor and love it. I can get 10 dog crates in the back plus luggage. Love this car.
I suspect this is a hoax. Some websites have 2017 Elements as a tiny little concept (awful looking) while other websites have a mix of the last Element and the concept. I’m guessing it’s BS. One would expect to see ‘something’ officially from Honda by now if this is for real. C’mon, it’s already September.
Unfortunately it’s Just a rumor someone started to tease us Element lovers. Not nice.
Had a 2007 Element and. 2012 Prius, perfect duo until I moved to a place with parking for 1. Was ready to trade both in for a new Element…Loved that vehicle…most versatile vehicle ever, but alas, they did not make them any more. Bought a loaded Subaru Forester. The only thing that would make me get rid of the Forester would be a new Element. please say this is happening!!!
A 30,000 base price will certainly make it less attractive.
Honda is making another bad mistake on a good idea. If they bring this back it needs a better quality interior, engine power between 180-220 and keep the same level of utility and body style. They have a real winner if they made they changes and kept it around 25k.
I own a 2005 Ex I have bin holding out for another one . Bin recently thinking of droping Honda all together but if they did bring the Element back I would go out and buy one tomorrow in a Hart beat. If this is true it wold be great to hear it from Honda them selves I hope they do its an amazing vehicle I still receive components on it.
Thank you for the up date.
Honda, you really had a chance to nail it and you dropped the ball big time. You should have made it a hybrid.
If this is true, then I’m breaking into my HAPPY dance! Been waiting for this for a long time. Not sure why Honda stopped making Elements in the first place. It is the BEST car ever in terms of space, utility, economics, design, dependability.
PLEASE DON”T CHANGE THE DESIGN!!! It’s the very thing that Element lovers love about the car. You can upgrade, i.e. AWD, manual 6 speed, hybrid option, (not sure about making back seat to fit 3, suspect would lose space/comfort) – but DON’T make it taller or wider, or add any extra exterior features (less is more!). Love it the way it is, that’s why we as consumers want it back so much!
I have a 2006 Element, over 150,000 miles on it and have not needed repair or service other than maintenance, battery/tire change, etc.
I have a 2006 red Element. Crazy about the color and the only thing comparable (color) is the HR-V. Don’t understand why they have these guys so underpowered. My dog and I go to competitions and most of the driving can be back roads or hills/valleys. I want the CR-V engine in it. Can’t see why a passenger SUV needs that much power compared to the smaller version for active people that use it for hiking, camping, etc. and load it up with stuff.
No one from the website has come back on to say it isn’t a hoax, so I’m assuming it’s just that.
I’m trying to hold on to my 2003 Element. I’ve replaced the transmission and engine in the last couple of years and traveled over 590,000 miles in it. It is an amazing workhorse of a car for my needs. If Honda is truly resuming production of the Element, I will certainly be in line to buy one. The $30,000 price sounds suspicious, however. We Element lovers continue to dream we’ll see the day a new model will be on the market again.
This needs to be a true story. I’ve been looking at smaller SUVs with similar wheelbases and nothing compares to the Element’s function and overall versatility. Most vehicles in this price range have in fact gotten smaller and less versatile. I’d love a quieter cabin and a slightly more angled and rounded appearance but not excessive to the point where it’s looking too much like a CRV. I’d prefer a 6 speed to CVT unless they bump the HP up to 180; it’s currently a turtle when fully loaded with people or gear. Bring back Fuji Blue and count me in.
Hate to burst your balloon but there is no truth to the Honda Element making a return. I checked with Honda. Sorry friend
The torment goes on!! Maybe time to give up waiting that the Element will ever come back??!! Looking into a newer vehicle…would like some upgrades. But nothing strikes me like my E. I may sell my 2005 blue EX. 65,300 miles. I’m the original owner.
Where are you located and what are you looking to sell it for?
Had a 2003 Element for 9 yrs and 387000 miles. Saw a Certified 2011 on the lot and traded a Prius and the old Element. Only difference are the body panels. These vehicles never die! Put on front and rear brake pads and a starter during that time. Only traded it because I didn’t think I would ever find another. (Oh almost forgot, 3 windshields, a battery and 5 new sets of tires!)
Our local Honda dealer says the new Element will be here around Sept. or Oct. Hope I don’t need a new one anytime soon because there sure seem to be a very big bunch of Element lovers now that they aren’t available and the waiting list will be very long for a while!
My husband really wants me to always have a nice car to drive. I love my 2007 lime green Element and have no desire for a new vehicle! Have had it serviced each time the light goes on and never a single problem at all. I’ll see you Element lovers in line if Honda ever comes out with another one!
What’s the deal, IS this happening or not stateside???? There are enough people asking about it and getting volatile after being misled to bring it back for sure. Also, why would anyone set up fake sites w fake info? I get asked all the time and I have an 03. Well, hoping they bring it to the USA.
My 2004 Element DX has about 260,000 miles but no longer passes inspection. It never needed a thing beyond regular maintenance, but sadly, the suspension and exhaust systems wore out at the same time and I just can’t justify putting that much money into a 14 year old car with mileage that high. It would make my decade if Honda brought it back, hopefully in the original style with the plastic quadrapanels and clamshell doors and tailgate. An auxiliary jack on the base model would be all the upgrade I need. I’ve actually approached strangers to ask if they were looking to sell theirs and most of them said I wasn’t the first random person to offer to buy it. Element lovers are hard up, Honda. Get your sh*t together!
There is a niche for a ‘real’ sport utility, a vehicle that can take it, inside and out, no muss , no fuss, just a great low maintenance, rock um sock um fun vehicle. Hope this is not fake
