2011 Honda Element's chassis features a Toe Control Link McPherson strut suspension in front and a compact double-wishbone suspension in the rear. To add to the new Element, Honda Element has a unique braking system. As brake force is exerted on the rear wheel, it deflects the front of the trailing arm inward and rearward. The reactive link flexes in response to this force, but keeps the end of the trailing arm from moving inward.
This creates a twisting motion in the trailing arm that causes the rear wheel to angle in. This toe in increases vehicle stability under braking, vibration mounts for the engine help significantly reduce engine idle vibration, a fluid filled engine mount is used at the engine's axis mounting point. 2011 Honda Element EX models comes equipped with a 270-watt 7-speaker (with subwoofer) AM/FM/CD sound system and an auxiliary audio input built into the dash for digital media and MP3 players.

For sports gear including mountain bikes, snowboards, surfboards and other equipment, the rear seats flip to the side to create a vast cargo area.
The standard seatback bungee cords on the EX allow equipment like skateboards to be stored conveniently behind the seats. The rear seats also lay flat to form a bed with the front seats, or can be removed entirely.

A urethane-coated utility floor resists water, dirt and scratches while providing easy clean up and easy cargo loading.
