Versatile Interior with Premium Features

The Element offers a highly functional interior with versatile, spacious seating for four people and a cargo area that quickly adapts to large items. The removable flip-up rear seats fold flat, fold up and to the side, or can be removed altogether (64+ seating arrangements). A black urethane-coated utility floor on Element LX and EX trim levels quickly wipes down and the seat fabric resists moisture. Air conditioning with micron air filtration is standard on all models.

Designed with a sleeker style, the Element SC adds a carpeted floor (black urethane utility floor is retained in the cargo area), a center console with storage, piano black trim pieces and exclusive fabric patterns. The center console provides an additional hidden storage area in the vehicle and integrates the auxiliary audio input jack and two beverage holders. Meter styling on all Element SC models is copper-hue, replacing the blue backlit illumination on the other models. On Root Beer Metallic and Nighthawk Black Pearl Element SC's, exclusive copper-color trim pieces are used on meters and dials. "Tattoo" print fabric is used on all Element SC seats and door liners.

The Element LX has a 4-speaker AM/FM audio system with a CD player. The 270-watt high-output audio system in the EX and SC trim levels features an AM/FM tuner, CD player with MP3/WMA capability, auxiliary audio input for MP3 or digital devices, steering wheel mounted audio controls, seven speakers including a Dynamic Linear Phase (DLP) 6.5-inch subwoofer located in the bottom center of the instrument panel. XM® Satellite Radio is standard on the Element EX and SC.

New for 2007, all Elements feature an Integrated Seat Belt System on the front seats that replace the previous B-pillar/door-mounted shoulder strap system. The shoulder strap on the new Seat Integrated Safety Belt System originates from the top of the front seats and helps to enhance vehicle ingress/egress convenience for rear passengers.

Numerous storage bins and beverage holders provide places for cell phones, CDs and super-size drinks. Storage areas include: five beverage holders; low-profile floor console tray (LX and EX) between the front seats; a large three-bin tray above the glove box (perfect for cell phones and PDAs); an overhead storage bin (EX, SC); seat back storage (EX,SC); six hooks for strapping down bikes or other bulky gear; and door storage pockets on all four doors.

The SC adds a center console with two beverage holders, an additional storage bin and an auxiliary audio input. The space occupied by the instrument panel-mounted subwoofer on EX and SC models is utilized as a storage bin on LX models.
