Safety

The Honda Element is one of just four small SUVs to earn the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick Award for 2010. To get that rating, vehicles must score the top grade, Good, in front, side and rear crash tests, as well as a new roof-strength test.

The Element also includes standard stability control and seat-mounted side airbags for the driver and front passenger.
