Reviewed by ; Kevin Massy , Associate Editor, CNETWhen we reviewed the 2005 Honda Element last year, we found beneath its bizarre, boxy exterior a practical, spacious people-mover with plenty of cargo room and a number of surprisingly advanced audio features. Well, there's not much change to report for the 2006 model year. The 2006 Honda Element retains all of the preschool plastic controls, the ruggedized interior features (including a urethane floor covering), and the engine options of its predecessor. One of the few changes is the availability of color-coded bumpers, which serve to smarten up what remains a--how shall we put it--unique exterior profile. But people aren't going to buy the Element for its aesthetic design. They'll buy it because it's one of the only cars on the market that can be hosed out and left to dry without incurring any real lasting damage to its interior fittings and fixtures.
