2011 Honda Element LX SUV

2011 Honda Element Review

(3 Stars)  More flexible than other boxes

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Honda Element was the first "box" car to make it to the United States. There have been many others to join in on this new body style including Scion, Nissan and Kia. However, none of these companies have outdone Honda in bringing a more useful vehicle in a small form. The Honda Element really takes full advantage of the square design and this shape allows much more room on the interior of the vehicle. This vehicle is also larger than most other box body cars and offers an option of front or all wheel drive. These are just some reasons that this is the best selling box car on the market.

The Honda element proves to be a very versatile SUV alternate and has become a popular vehicle for those who love outdoors activities that require a vehicle to handle some rugged terrain. The Element comes standard with folding seats to give more storage room on the inside and also has waterproof and stain resistant seats. This SUV style vehicle is made to play hard and get dirty, it can even have built in coolers for campers if you choose this additional options package.
