The Honda Crosstour is a crossover SUV manufactured by Honda. Sales for this vehicle began in 2009.
The Crosstour's design is similar to the Honda Pilot. The Honda Pilot, however, is much larger in size. The Crosstour, on the other hand, is longer and only has two rows of seating whereas the Honda Pilot has three rows of seating.
This automobile is a hatchback/station wagon form of the Accord and shares a similar platform. A V6 engines powers the vehicle and users have a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
This specific automobile competes with the Toyota Venza. The Venza is a station wagon that is based on the Accord's competitor, the Toyota Camry. The Honda Crosstour was once known as the Accord Crosstour, but Honda removed "Accord" from the name in 2012. This was mainly due to the fact that they wanted to give the vehicle a new style, and thus, needed an original name.
In 2013, the Crosstour was given a facelift. The interior was updated and the engine was replaced with a more fuel efficient and powerful V6 engine. Fuel economy was also improved, making the Crosstour an ideal vehicle for those who are extremely savvy about ways to save money and get their best deal for gas mileage.
The Crossover comes with many safety features. These features include a lane departure warning system and a rearview camera. The features of this car are top notch because it also can be upgraded with a more sophisticated rearview camera. This camera offers wide view angles.
Honda made the announcement in 2015 that the Crossover would be discontinued and would no longer be produced due to slow sales. Honda also made this decision because they felt like they needed to make more space for the Honda CR-V, as well as the Acura RDX.
