The 2011 Honda Element at Castle Honda: Your Chicago Area Honda Dealer
Configurable seating and versatile cargo design allow you to flip, fold or take the rear seats out for up to 64 different space options.
A storage revolution, a place for everything, right at hand. With a center console with removable cooler (EX), overhead storage console (EX), and a non-traditional yet functional instrument panel, the Element keeps your things in reach.
Don't worry about dirt, sand, renegade food crumbs or even pet spills. With its black, scratch-resistant utility floor and tough water-resistant FXC® seat fabric, the Element is rugged to use and easy to clean up.
Take off with 166 horsepower under the hood, available Real Time™ 4WD for tricky terrain and 1,500 lbs of towing capacity.
The Element's advanced 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC® engine design provides the best of both worlds: power for cruising and twin balance shafts for smooth, quiet running.
Smoothing out the bumps with its control-link MacPherson strut front suspension and precise steering, the Element's road manners may be better than yours.
Tops in Safety
The Element was named a 2010 TOP SAFETY PICK by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). According to the IIHS, the award "recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting people in front, side, rear, and now [for 2010] rollover crashes."
Standard on every Element is a complement of advanced safety systems to keep you out of trouble and in command. Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) helps sense oversteer or understeer in an emergency situation, and then adjusts brake pressure at each wheel and/or reduces engine power to help restore driver control and keep you on course. 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), along with Brake Assist, allows full braking force for authoritative stopping. And for better road composure, the Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), helps balance braking forces and the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) alerts the driver when a tire's pressure reaches a significantly low level.
The Element and the Environment
All Element models feature Honda i-VTEC® technology for reduced emissions and higher fuel efficiency on regular unleaded gas. Gear ratios in the 5-speed automatic transmission also do their part: They are optimized to balance driving performance, fuel economy and low emissions.
