2011 Honda Element Review

The 2011 Element is designed for those who navigate on their own terms now with more fun freedom and flexibility from the inside out. Under the hood lives a 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine with advanced features like an aluminum-alloy block and head. Take off with 166 horsepower under the hood available Real Time 4WD for tricky terrain and 1 500 pounds of towing capacity. For work or play or a little of both the Element has an interior that's as versatile as you need it to be. Configurable seating and versatile cargo design allow you to flip fold or take the rear seats out for up to 64 different space options. Add the available Honda Satellite Linked Navigation System to expand your possibilities. From its side-impact door beams to side curtain airbags with rollover sensor the Element represents a comprehensive approach to safety. These and other standard safety features helped the Element earn 5 stars in frontal and side-impact crash safety tests. The 2011 Honda Element is the ultimate adventurer’s tool.
