Overview

The extremely versatile Honda Element SUV undergoes a transformation for 2007 with freshened styling, 10 more horsepower, new 5-speed automatic transmission (available) and extensive new standard safety equipment that includes side curtain airbags and Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®). An all-new sporty variation, the Element SC, also debuts with a sport-tuned suspension, "Street Custom" styling and premium features.

The addition of standard front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), side curtain airbags and VSA to the Element mark a significant milestone for Honda's dedication to vehicle safety by fulfilling the goals of its "Safety for Everyone" initiative introduced in 2003.

In addition to new safety equipment, more than a dozen enhancements have been made to the Element LX and EX, highlighted by new headlight and grille styling, a more powerful 166-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, Drive-by-Wire™ throttle system, new interior color schemes with black urethane flooring, integrated front seat belts, Maintenance Minder™ system, new gauge designs, tire pressure monitoring system and more.

"The 2007 Honda Element provides an extensive list of advanced safety equipment along with a new level of sophistication and refinement," said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "The Element SC adds a new dimension of performance and style while retaining its core versatility." 2007 Honda Element SC 2007 Honda Element SC
