2006 Honda Element

Torrance, Calif. September 20, 2005

For the 2006 model year, Honda's versatile and fun-to-drive Element adds the EX-P trim level to its already distinct and diverse lineup. The new EX-P trim is based on the existing EX trim level and adds body-colored painted side panels and door handles. Since its launch in 2003, the Element has become the new benchmark for functional and design in the light-truck arena. For 2005, the Element received Consumer Guide's "Recommended: Compact SUV" distinction.
