The 2009 Honda Element is targeted at a decidedly younger demographic than most vehicles, and features are an important selling point when for buyers in their mid-20s. As such, the 2009 Honda Element offers quite a few high-tech features to appeal to this tech-savvy crowd.

Standard features vary somewhat across the 2009 Honda Element lineup, but TheCarConnection.com's research shows that this Honda 2009 vehicle is pretty well equipped even in base form. ConsumerGuide states that the base Honda Element LX features "air conditioning, interior air filter, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, cloth upholstery, front bucket seats w/height-adjustable driver seat, [and a] stowable split folding or flip-up rear seat." A four-speaker AM/FM/CD sound system is also standard fare on the Honda 2009 Element in LX garb. Moving up to the more expensive versions, Autoblog notes that the Honda Element "EX and SC feature a 270-watt high-output audio system, an AM/FM tuner, CD player with MP3/WMA4 capability, auxiliary audio input for MP3 players or other audio devices, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, seven speakers including a dynamic linear phase 6.5-inch subwoofer (located in the bottom center of the instrument panel)." XM Satellite Radio is also standard on the upscale versions of the 2009 Honda Element.

The 2009 Honda Element offers quite a bit in the way of optional features, including the usual goodies that you would expect in this category. Chief among those "regular" options, according to Autoblog, is the "Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Activation," which should help ease the burden of interfacing with the system. Cars.com notes that "a rearview backup camera [and] USB hookup for an MP3 player" are available on the Honda Element EX and SC and come with the navigation package. Rounding out the options list on this Honda 2009 Element, according to Autoblog, are "a removable storage cooler and an improved overhead storage console on select models."

Conclusion

The 2009 Honda Element caters to younger buyers with plenty of tech-savvy features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
