    Model overview

    The Honda Element is a compact crossover SUV produced by Honda using a revised CR-V platform and sold in North America across a single generation for the model years 2003-2011.

    Produced in Ohio, the Element was available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive and was remarked for its boxy design with bi-parting side doors and its flexible inside layout.

    The Element arose from a concept named Model X which was produced by Honda engineers in 1998 and introduced in 2001 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Model X was created as an activity-oriented automobile mixing traits of a pickup truck and an SUV.

    The Honda Element is available in two trim levels: LX and EX. Every trim is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 166 horsepower and 161 pound-feet of torque paired to a five-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is by default, while all-wheel drive is possible on both the LX and EX trim levels.
