The Honda Element is the versatile box of motor vehicles, combining unique and practical features with a kind of military/utilitarian chic. Honda says the Element was designed specifically for young adventurers who need to haul wet or messy gear, like you can in a pickup, but with the security of an enclosed cargo area, like an SUV’s, plus car-like performance and economy. Element provides all that. And it appeals to a much larger audience than just young men.
Element’s durable, scratch-resistant interior is a big part of its charm. Its seats are designed to get wet. Inside and out, it looks like a little truck. But it’s built with components from the Honda Civic, so it drives more like a car than a truck-based SUV.
The Honda Element has lots of room for passengers and cargo, with a flexible interior designed to handle all combinations of people and stuff. The front seat area provides acres of headroom, and there’s no center tunnel between the front seats to get in the way.
The rear seats are roomy as well. They’re raised off the floor a couple of inches higher than the front seats, giving back-seat passengers better visibility over the front seats.
The 2005 Honda Element comes with the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine used in the Accord. It’s as sweet as any Honda engine, which means it revs freely and has good low-end torque. This is the all-wheel-drive model and it makes the Element a good winter car with sufficient ride height and ground clearance. They can be good vehicles for remote camping trips. The all-wheel-drive doesn’t add too much weight, so it doesn’t greatly diminish fuel economy.
The Element is wider than the typical small sedan, and it handles curves well for a relatively tall vehicle. In nearly all circumstances it’s pleasant, even fun, to drive.
The Honda Element is a compelling option for drivers who want a genuine utility vehicle that behaves like a car. Its versatile interior makes the Element quite handy in certain situations, with its easy access and flat floor that’s easy to clean. Looks are part of the attraction here. You’ll either like the Element or hate it. We liked it and found it appeals to people of all ages.
