Default Element: 2005 Honda Element Remains Highly Versatile and Fun-to-Drive

The Element, Honda's multi-functional and versatile SUV, broke with the status
quo when it debuted during the 2003 model year. For 2005, all Elements boast
added features and value, including a longer list of standard safety features,
along with new color combinations and two new colors for the Element's
exterior composite body panels.

In accordance with Honda's industry-leading 'Safety for Everyone' commitment,
all 2005 EX Elements will feature anti-lock brakes and front side airbags as
standard equipment. EX models will also benefit from MP3 and Windows Media™
Audio (WMA) playback capability as well as standard XM® Satellite Radio.

For 2005, LX models add two features previously reserved for the EX trim level:
power mirrors and cruise control. Additionally, LX models now have standard
wheel covers. The variety of exterior color combinations also increases for
the EX model. Silver EX models are now accented by blue cladding panels and
Red and Magnesium EX models have black cladding. Also available on EX models
are three new colors- Cargo Khaki, Magnesium Metallic, and Rallye Red.

Element provides the most versatile package for any vehicle in its price range
with a hard flat floor like a pickup, an enclosed rear area like an SUV, fuel
economy and maneuverability similar to a car, side cargo doors, and available

Honda's 2.4-liter, i-VTEC, 4-cylinder engine with 160-horsepower and
161 lb.-ft. of torque is coupled to either a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed
manual transmission and provides good acceleration while maintaining fuel economy
in the low- to mid-twenties. The i-VTEC system (the "i" stands for
"intelligent") combines Honda's patented VTEC system with
Variable Timing Control (VTC) to enhance low rpm torque while extending high
rpm horsepower. Honda's Real Time 4WD™ system is available on all
models and 16-inch wheels are standard.

Element's chassis features a Toe Control Link MacPherson strut suspension
in front and a compact double-wishbone suspension in the rear. Although similar
to the underpinnings of the Honda CR-V, significant adjustments have been made
to the uni-body construction to allow for the B-pillarless design and the low,
flat floor.

The Honda Element entered new territory when it debuted during the 2003 model
year by providing a multi-functional cargo area, innovative and versatile seating,
durable and dirt-friendly interior, energetic performance and outstanding value.
