Element 2011 Honda

2011 Honda
Never get boxed in.
Element EX shown in Polished Metal Metallic.
Sure, it may look a little square at
first, but the Element is all about fun,
flexibility and most of all, freedom.
With 64 different seating positions,
a powerful 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine
and available Real Time™ 4-wheel
drive, the Element was built for
those who appreciate the unlimited
possibilities that life brings.
Versatility. The Element can
quickly adapt to your needs.
Fold the seats flat and take
a nap. Need more room for
gear? Flip up the rear seats
or take them out altogether.
Keep it handy. Because there’s
a place for almost everything,
everything can be in its place.
The large overhead console
on EX is the perfect spot for
all those things you need easy
access to, like sunglasses,
CDs and cell phones.
Road trip
Considering its massive headroom, legroom and
numerous storage areas for drinks and snacks, it’s no
wonder that the Element is a road-trip favorite. Its
durable, spill-resistant surfaces mean it can handle
trip after trip with nary a nick to show for it.
Premium tunes. To
keep things pumping,
Element EX features a
270-watt audio system
with seven speakers,
including a subwoofer.
An MP3/auxiliary input
jack and XM Radio 2
let you really expand
your listening options.

Make the
most of it.
Designed from the outset to be as flexible as possible, the
Element is a case study in how to maximize every square
inch of interior space.1 Flip up the rear seats, fold them flat
or take them out altogether to accommodate whatever
the weekend’s activities call for.
Safe and secure.
T ie-down anchor s,
cargo area hooks,
multiple storage
bins and driver-side
seatback bungees
(EX) make quick work
of securing even
the most unruly gear.
Honda reminds you to properly secure
items stored in the cargo area.
Chill out. The Element EX’s center
console isn’t just about stowing your
stuff. It also features a removable
cooler. Just slide it out to take some
beverages with you or to make room
for extra-long items – like a surfboard.
Man’s best friend’s
best friend. One
of the most pet-friendly vehicles
ever is even better with the Dog
Friendly Honda Element Package,
available on select models. The
specially designed collection of
accessories includes a stowable
ramp, pet bed, water bowl, and
more. Please see your Honda
dealer for details, or you can go
to dogfriendly.honda.com.

play safe.
The Element has a full complement of standard safety
features including six airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA )
and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System3 (TPMS).
Brake Assist and EBD. Brake Assist, a component
of the anti-lock braking system (ABS), helps apply
full braking force in some emergency situations.
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) helps balance
braking forces depending upon dynamic loading.
Six standard airbags. The Element features
dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags,
front side airbags with passenger-side
Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS)
and side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor.*
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA).† Standard
on every Element, VSA employs sensors
to monitor for oversteer or understeer.
It adjusts brake pressure at each wheel
and/or reduces engine power to help
restore the vehicle to its intended path.
*H onda reminds you and your passengers to always buckle up. Children 12 and under are safest when properly restrained in the rear seat.
† V SA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle’s course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving.
Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
Unit-body construction. Incorporating front and rear
crumple zones, the Element’s chassis is designed to
minimize the amount of crash energy entering the
passenger compartment. Side-impact door beams help
provide enhanced structural protection and help reduce
the likelihood of cabin intrusion.
