The Crosstour slots below the Pilot in size in Honda's SUV lineup; the Crosstour is longer but has two rows of seating compared to the Pilot's three and has approximately 50cu ft less interior space.
The Crosstour is a hatchback/wagon variation of the Accord and shares the same platform. The Crosstour is powered by the 3.5-liter V6 engine and a choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, with prices starting at $29,670, above those of the Accord sedan (which starts at just under $23,000).
The Crosstour is a competitor to the Toyota Venza, a wagon based upon the Accord's perennial competitor, the Camry. And like the Venza, which was meant to replace the Camry wagon, the Crosstour does the same to the Accord wagon.
For 2012, Honda removed the "Accord" prefix, making the name just "Crosstour", and gave its front grille a restyle. An I4 engine for front-wheel-drive models was released in late 2011 and put on sale in early 2012.
The Crosstour is sold currently in the US, Canada, Mexico, China, Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Russia. Since October 2010, Crosstour has been built and marketed in China by GAC-Honda.
For the 2013 model year, Honda refreshed the Crosstour. A concept vehicle of the Crosstour was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show on April 4, 2012. The revised 2013 Crosstour went on sale on November 20 with a $500 reduction in price along with increased standard content. The interior was redesigned, a more powerful and fuel efficient Earth Dreams V6 engine coupled to a 6-speed automatic replaces the previous V6 and 5-speed automatic. Fuel economy for V6 models is improved to an EPA-estimated 20/30/23 mpg (city/highway/combined) for front-wheel-drive and 19/28/22 mpg for all-wheel-drive. Inside a 10-way power (2-way lumbar) driver's seat and auto-dimming rearview mirror also became standard on all trims.
The 2013 Crosstour is available with a Forward Collision and Lane Departure Warning Systems. A rearview camera is standard on all 2012 models, a more sophisticated rear camera with wide and top view angles is optional. Excluding the base EX trim a new LaneWatch camera mounted in the passenger side mirror is standard on 2013 models.
