2025 Honda Element: Everything You Need to Know About the Rumored Comeback – The Honda Element was a fun and useful small SUV that came out in 2003 and was no longer made after 2011. People liked it because it had a big shape, a roomy interior, a lot of useful features, and was pet-friendly. It also had a strong following of fans who still miss it and hope it comes back.
There may be good news for those fans, though. Several rumors and news sources say that Honda is thinking about bringing back the Element for the 2025 model year. A new base, new engines, a new style, and new technology could be some of the big changes that come with the new Element. Here’s what we know so far about the Honda Element’s possible return in 2025.
Design: Exterior and Interior
One thing that made the old Honda Element stand out from other SUVs was the way it looked. Its small but boxy shape made up most of the room inside and made it more useful. It also had sliding doors that made getting to the front and back seats easy. The outside came in different colors, like Royal Blue Pearl, Citrus Fire, Sunset Orange, and Cargo Khaki.
Some of these things might be in the new Honda Element, but they might also be updated to fit today’s standards. Some fan-made drawings of the Element show it with LED lights, a bigger grille, and more curves, making it look sleeker and more modern. One of the cars that the new Element might share a base with is the Honda CR-V. The two cars might have some of the same design cues.
When the old Honda Element was made, the inside was made to be useful. It was great for families, people who like being outside, and pet owners because the floor was easy to clean. When the back seats are folded up, and against the walls, there is a lot of space for bikes, surfboards, or camping stuff. Inside, there was also a pet-friendly area with an animal bed, a ramp that could be folded up; seat covers with dog patterns, and “Dog-Bone” floor mats that could be used all year.
These things might be better on the new Honda Element, which might also have more ease and better quality. Better finishes and materials, as well as more up-to-date technology, could be added to the inside. It’s also possible that the new Element will have an entertainment system with a tablet, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging, and more. There may also be tools in the new Element that help the driver, like adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot tracking, and more.
There was a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine in the old Honda Element that gave it enough power and gas mileage for daily drive. It also came with an optional all-wheel-drive system that made it better in all kinds of weather and light off-road settings.
With some new engine choices, the new Honda Element might be able to go faster and use less gas. A 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine like the one in the Honda CR-V could be one of them. This motor has 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque, and it works with a continuously variable gearbox (CVT). A hybrid system, which pairs an electric motor with a gasoline engine to get better gas mileage and lower pollution, is another choice.
There are also rumors that the new Honda Element might be an electric-only car (EV). It makes sense to do this since electric vehicles are becoming more and more common. Honda has already said that it will release an electric car called the Prologue in 2024. The new Element and the Prologue might share some parts. An electric version of the Element might be able to go more than 200 miles on a single charge and be able to charge quickly.
Release Date and Price
Honda hasn’t officially said yes or no to the rumors that the 2025 Honda Element will be back. Some sources, though, say that the company is really thinking about this move and might make an announcement soon. Should this be true, the new Element might come out sometime in 2024 for the 2025 model year.
We also have yet to determine how much the new Honda Element will cost. We can guess, though, that it would cost about the same as or a little more than the base model of the current Honda CR-V, which starts at about $25,000. Of course, the price would change based on the features, engine choice, and trim level.
The Honda Element was a one-of-a-kind SUV that people loved because it was useful, fun, stylish, and flexible. After ten years, many fans still hope it will come back. There are rumors that the Honda Element will be back in 2025, which is exciting and hopeful, but it has yet to be proven. Honda might bring this wonder back, but we will know what it will look like once they do. We can only think about and dream about the new Element once, then.
