Default 2003 Honda Element -- Safety

Torrance, Calif. - Aug 26 —

High levels of safety with smart-linked body structure and
advanced technology

Overview

Element is expected to meet or exceed the highest rankings
possible
for government front and side impact safety tests (five stars) and
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety frontal offset crash tests
(good performance). To accomplish this, a smart-linked unibody
structure is used that is designed to progressively absorb
energy and
isolate the passenger cabin from forces. The lack of a B-pillar is
compensated for by a network of cross members, door braces
and the
use of high-tensile steel, and a hook and catcher system to
protect
the cabin just as well as if it had a B-pillar.

Inside, the supplemental restraint system features standard
dual-stage driver's and passenger's front airbags, available side
airbags with Occupant Position Detection System, and the
LATCH system
for installing child seats. Front seat belts feature dual
pre-tensioners that pull the lap and shoulder belts toward the
occupant in the event of a collision.

Theft Deterrent Measures


  • Immobilizer System (if incorrect key is used)


  • Flush mounted door lock knobs


  • Wave Key (difficult to copy)


  • Available Keyless Entry with "copy protection"


  • Internal covers that prevent "slim jim" lock deactivation
