2010 Honda Element Review

Not every car shopper is looking for a built-in dog kennel and other canine-friendly accoutrements in their next compact SUV. But for that small niche of dog owners who are, there's only one real option: Honda's Element with its new Dog Friendly Package.

A simple $995 add-on to the LX and EX (the sportier SC can't be equipped with it) transforms the Element into a dog taxi with no rival.

We last reviewed the Element in 2008, when it received its last significant update. You can read that review, which tackled the SC trim, here, or check out a comparison of the 2010 and 2009 models here.
