Pimp your dog's ride: 2010 Honda Element is furry-friendly

October 14, 2009 | 12:27 pm


Now your dog can ride in style, thanks to American Honda's new 2010 Element.

The car is souped-up with equipment such as a cushioned pet bed, a dedicated fan for the pet-cargo space, a spill-resistant water bowl and an extendable ramp for glamorous entrances and exits. And the Dog Friendly Element is designed not just with comfort in mind, but safety as well -- soft, seat-belt-grade nylon webbing secures pet passengers in the vehicle's cargo area, preventing driver interference and adding an extra layer of protection for dogs in the event of a frontal collision.

The Dog Friendly Element is available for purchase beginning Nov. 17, with an option price of $995.  Read more about this pet-centric new vehicle at The Times' auto blog, Up To Speed.
