About the Honda Element
The Honda Element was the first in a long line of boxy cars designed for the active consumer. Unlike most SUVs, it can only seat four people, but the floor is made of easy-to-clean rubber and the entire car is designed to maximize cargo space and accessibility.
The base engine is a four-cylinder, which reviewers said was powerful enough for daily driving. The Element also ranked well for safety and reliability. The base model can also be upgraded to an all-wheel drive edition. Critics noted the lack of high-end interior materials in the Element, but since the Element is a truly utilitarian SUV, that’s not to the Element’s detriment.
Honda designed its Element with an eye towards a younger, active population – it was the kind of car you can throw two boats on top of and two bikes in the back of and take your friends on an awesome camping trip. As its success became apparent, other manufacturers began to take notice, and by 2009 the Element was one of many compact SUVs with an eye towards the outdoors-y customer. It was the related decline in sales that led to its discontinuation in 2011.
Honda Element Environmental Impact
The standard Element gets 20/25mpg city/highway, which is in the middle of the class, and the 4-wheel drive models gets slightly less. There were no eco-friendly models introduced before the Element was discontinued.
