2010 Honda Element Sport Utility Crossover
Benefits of Driving a 2010 Honda Element Sport Utility Crossover
Based on the CR-V platform, the versatile 2010 Honda Element is well-suited for people who carry gear for outdoor activities, and for those with dogs. Its compact overall dimensions, good maneuverability, and tall driving position make it a great urban vehicle. With plenty of standard safety equipment and a low base price, the Element makes a good value proposition. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the 2010 Element five out of five stars for front- and side-impact crashes. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the 2010 Element a 'Good' rating (the highest possible) in frontal offset and side impact testing, and awarded it a 'Top Safety Pick' distinction.
What's new for 2010?
Following a complete exterior and interior makeover in 2009, the Honda Element receives only minor changes for 2010. On EX models, a new 'dog-friendly' pet accommodation system includes a soft-sided kennel in the cargo area, special dog-print patterned seat covers and floor mats, and a special ramp to allow old dogs ease of ingress and egress.
- Practical cargo utility
- updated stylish exterior
- easy-access interior and controls
The 2010 Honda Element gets a lot of utility out of a vehicle that's quite compact and easy to park with a van-like body, an extremely versatile interior and rear-hinged back doors that allow wide loading access. Inside, a black urethane utility floor cleans up easily and the seat upholstery is moisture-resistant, making the Element a good choice for those with pets, babies or messy cargo. There's seating for up to four people and the back seats flip up easily for larger cargo, or they can be removed completely. All Elements have multiple beverage holders, cargo hooks for strapping down larger items like bikes and spacious door pockets on all four doors.
