New Styling, SC Trim

The Element lineup includes LX, EX and SC (for "Street Custom") variants. The LX and EX come with front- or all-wheel drive, while the SC comes only with front-wheel drive. I drove a 2007 Element SC last year and an '08 all-wheel-drive Element EX.

While the LX and EX sport modest headlights and a twin-bar grille, the SC has an entirely different face. It looks like a tuner shop had its way with things: We're talking menacing headlights, a darkened grille, 18-inch wheels, monochromatic ground effects and a sport-tuned suspension.
