The Honda Crosstour (initially branded the Accord Crosstour) is a mid-size car manufactured by Japanese automaker Honda. Sales began in November 2009 for the 2010 model year and were discontinued for the 2016 model year due to slow sales.[1][2]

The Crosstour slotted below the Pilot in size in Honda's SUV lineup; the Crosstour was longer but had two rows of seating compared to the Pilot's three and had approximately 50 cubic feet less interior space.[3][4]

The Crosstour was a hatchback/wagon variation of the Accord and shared the same platform. The Crosstour was powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine or the optional 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine (front-wheel drive only) and a choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive,[5] with prices that started at $29,670, above those of the Accord sedan (which started at under $23,000).[6]

The Crosstour was 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 did the same to the Accord wagon.

For the 2012 model year, 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 was sold in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, Middle East, Southeast Asia and Russia. Guangqi Honda built and marketed the Crosstour in China.


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, 2012 with a $500 reduction in price along with increased standard content. The interior was redesigned, with a more powerful and fuel efficient J35Y1 V6 engine coupled to a 6-speed automatic replacing the previous J35Z2 V6 and 5-speed automatic. Fuel economy for V6 models was 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.


On April 8, 2015, Honda announced that it was discontinuing production on the Crosstour at the end of the 2015 model year due to slow sales.[7] Final production date was August 31, 2015. Another factor in Honda's decision is to free up space on the production line for the CR-V, Acura RDX and also the Acura MDX in 2017.[8]


The 2013 Crosstour was available with a Forward Collision and Lane Departure Warning Systems. A rear-view backup camera was standard on all 2012 models,[9] a more sophisticated rear camera with wide and top view angles was optional. Excluding the base EX trim a new LaneWatch camera mounted in the passenger side mirror was standard on 2013 models.
