"An SUV for the younger generation, designed by young staff members at Honda North America."
In April 2003, Honda embarked on a totally new project, one that was especially designed for North America. The Element, whose planning, development and production were all performed in the U.S., burst onto the SUV scene armed with unusual exterior styling and a utility-minded package.
Honda adopted the phrase "Endless Summer" as the working theme when developing the Element, so its intent as a beach-going vehicle for young drivers was obvious. Its exterior design even hinted of a lifeguard stand, suggesting that the car belonged near the beaches of Southern California. The Element also featured easy ingress and egress, especially at the rear seats, thanks to a wide opening and doors that swung out "suicide" style that didn't require the use of a B-pillar. With both front and rear doors opened, the large opening was ideal for sliding in skis, snowboards and surfboards to the rear seats.
The interior featured an ingenious design that was highlighted by a low, flat floor. The rear seats could be folded up, making the rear cargo compartment large enough to hold two mountain bikes. The floor could be cleaned with water, and the seats were water repellant, as was the roof lining. The Element was an SUV for all seasons and for all types of recreational usage.
Under the hood of the boxy Honda was a 2.4-liter DOHC inline-4 with i-VTEC, and it came mated to only a 4-speed automatic transmission. It featured both front-wheel-drive and 4-wheel drive, so it could get to those out-of-the-way places that no family sedan would venture.
