2007 Honda Element review with picture

The 2007 Honda Element came out as the sort of vehicle that beach goers love, with space enough for four friends and, if that wasn’t what you wanted, a lot of area to stuff things in once the people were emptied out. Now, this box-shaped car remains that same for 2007 but introduces a new partner in crime that rides lower to the ground and shines inside with silver, just right for city slickers who want a piece of the Element’s action.

The Element is no longer pretending to be a dirty kind of SUV. It’s gotten a lot more refined, and lost any measure of all terrain capability. It drives like a sedan and saves on gas, at least compared to other vehicles in its class. It originally came out in 2003 as a ready for the waves rover, and inside it was carpetless and easy to clean. The new version comes with carpet, although it is still available without. Chipping and scraping aren’t really a problem with this vehicle, whose exterior as well has the element of stone.

The Element comes in three levels, standard with a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine with front wheel drive. You can choose between five speed manual or five speed automatic.

The LX and LX4WD are available with:

  • AC with micron filtering
  • power windows, locks, and mirrors
  • cruise control
  • four speaker sound system
  • remote entry

The EX and EX4WD:

  • all of the above
  • aluminum wheels
  • seven speaker subwoofer sound system
  • XM Satellite Radio
  • controls mounted on the steering wheel

The SC adds a 270 watt stereo.

Honda provides this model with its own Vehicle Stability Assist anti-skid electronics, a great asset in avoiding collisions. Other safety features include anti lock brakes and Brake Assist, as well as tire pressure monitoring system. There are three point belts for all seats as well as child LATCH safety anchor. Not to mention that they come with standard front airbags with an upgrade of side curtain airbags.

Cheers,

Fashun Guadarrama.
