Here’s why the Element is the best practical Honda that never came to the UK. It isn’t an MPV, it isn’t an SUV, it isn’t a van and it isn’t an estate. But what the Honda Element was – now celebrating its 20th anniversary – is a car that can do a lot of everything. Jonny Smith loved their simple design and robustness enough to buy one (for £5000). But in the UK there are thought to be less than a dozen, making it a rare JDM/American market choice as his family car.
