2009 Honda Element Review

Take a close look at the redesigned Element. Start with the urethane- coated floor -just one of its dog-friendly features. Now pull back a little. Check out its purposeful interior updated grille and headlights and the new wheels on EX. On every glance you take a few steps back revealing more features more functionality. The Element gets its power from a highly efficient1 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine. Advanced features like variable valve timing and a Drive-by- Wire throttle system ensure that power delivery is as smooth as it is responsive. Generating 166 horsepower it gives you a towing capacity of 1 500 lbs so you can bring along even more of your fun. With its multiple seating configurations 64 to be exact the Element is a case study in how to make the most of every square inch of interior space. Flip seats up fold them down or take them out altogether to accommodate whatever the weekend activity calls for. With standard features like side-curtain airbags Vehicle Stability Assist and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System as well as a new rearview camera display available on navigation-equipped models it’s evident the Element takes your safety seriously. In fact it received 5 stars in NHTSA frontal- and side-impact crash tests. The 2009 Honda Element. More fun. More freedom. More flexibility. From the inside out.
