Top Gear personality James May reviews the Honda Element. This crossover SUV “rides on a highly modified CR-V chassis, and because it has no visible B-pillars, it sports reinforced joints, strengthened lower side sills, larger crossmembers, enlarged rocker panels, and five bulkheads per side.” Video after the jump.

Powering the Element is Honda’s 2.4 L K24A4 i-VTEC four-cylinder engine that also sees duty in the Accord and CR-V. For the Element’s purposes, it produces 156 hp (119 kW) at 5500 rpm and 160 ft·lbf (218 N·m) of torque at 4500 rpm
