The uniquely styled Element was originally pitched as a type of backpack for young active males. Many buyers have found that the Element offers sensible all-wheel-drive utility for suburban duty. The orginal matte-finish composite fenders are no longer offered. The interior features spill-proof surfaces. The doors provide good access to the back, but are tricky to operate in parking spaces. Only 2 passengers can sit in the rear seat, but they will enjoy almost limousine-like leg room. A FWD-only SC package is offered featuring 18-inch wheels/tires, 1-inch lower ride height, projector-beam headlamps and a uniquely finished interior.

What Changed:

A dog friendly package will be offered on EX models. The package includes a ramp and a specially designed kennel for safely hauling dogs. Manual transmissions are no longer available on the Element.
