2011 Honda Accord Crosstour Trims

EX

Avg. Price: $19,067

Honda has added a crossover/hatchback to its popular Accord lineup, resulting in the 4-door, 5-passenger 2011 Accord Crosstour. The EX is the base trim of the Crosstour line but still boasts 51.3 cubic feet of cargo space (with the rear seats folded), beating its cargo-challenged sedan and coupe siblings by a country mile. Then there are the 17-inch alloy wheels and a chrome grille as standard appearance features, with cloth upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and a storage-capable rear-seat armrest also thrown in for good measure. The Crosstour EX also includes remote power door locks, cruise control, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, power windows and heated power outside mirrors on the list of standard goodies, as well as dual-zone climate control and front and rear floor mats. Entertainment is provided by a standard 360-watt audio system with a 6-CD changer and seven speakers, including a subwoofer. Options, meantime, are all dealer-installed and include underbody spoilers, 18-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack, backup sensors and remote engine start.

A 271-hp, variable-valve-timed (VVT) 3.5-liter V6 engine and 5-speed automatic transmission power the 2011 Crosstour EX, with torque in the range of 254 lb-ft. Expect some 1,500 pounds of towing capacity out of the six-banger with the available towing package installed, and mileage is touted to be 18 mpg city/27 highway, a 1-mpg improvement over last year’s trims. The EX trim is available in front-wheel drive (FWD) only.

Standard safety features in the 2011 Accord Crosstour EX include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), as well as traction and stability control. This base trim additionally sports front side-mounted airbags, as well as front and rear head airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights and a remote antitheft alarm are also delivered in this hefty hatchback.

EX-L

Avg. Price: $20,887

Touted as a hatchback, the unique-looking 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour is, at bottom, a crossover with a catchy name. Boasting 4 doors, 5-passenger capacity and 51.3 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seats folded, this oversize Accord also comes with an impressive list of standard luxury features, like leather upholstery, leather and simulated alloy cabin trim, and heated front seats with the driver memory feature for seats and mirrors, all of which add the “L” to its trim name. Further standard appearance and interior goodies include 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome grille, power sunroof, remote power door locks, power windows, heated, power, reverse-tilting outside mirrors and a universal remote garage door opener. Cruise control, dual-zone climate control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering come standard on this flagship trim as well, while standard satellite radio service, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB connection enhance the audio and communications experience. Options, all dealer-installed, include upgraded wheels, a roof rack, underbody spoilers, backup sensors and remote engine start.

As with the rest of the 2011 Crosstour lineup, the front-wheel-drive EX-L is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that’s mated with a 5-speed automatic transmission. This combo nets 271 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque, and can tow up to 1,500 pounds with the optional tow package installed. Mileage, with variable valve timing in the V6, is estimated at 18 mpg city/27 highway, a 1-mpg improvement over 2010.

Safety-wise, the 2011 Accord Crosstour EX-L comes with standard 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), as well as traction and stability control. Front side-mounted airbags, front and rear head airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection also come standard, as do daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights and a remote antitheft alarm.

EX-L 4WD

Avg. Price: $22,133

Honda’s odd-looking 2011 Accord Crosstour stashes an “as-needed” 4-wheel-drive (4WD) system aboard its EX-L trim, thus begetting the EX-L 4WD. Known as much for its controversial appearance as for its very un-sedan-like 51.3 cubic feet of cargo space, this 4-door, 5-passenger midsize hatchback-cum-crossover handles almost like the Accord sedan, scoots nearly as quickly as the coupe and sports all kinds of standard semi-luxury goodies. Beginning with 18-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof and chrome grille, the EX-L 4WD also boasts leather upholstery, heated, power-adjustable front seats and driver memory systems, as well as leather and simulated chrome cabin accents and trim. Telescoping tilt-wheel steering, power windows and heated mirrors, remote power door locks, cruise control, a universal remote garage door opener and dual-zone climate control also make the standard equipment list. Finally, a standard 360-watt audio system with 6-CD changer, seven speakers, satellite radio, a USB connection and Bluetooth technology provide occupants with enough entertainment and communications gizmos to take the edge off traveling. Options, all dealer-installed, include upgraded 18-inch wheels, underbody spoilers, a roof rack, remote engine start and backup sensors.

Standard power for the 2011 Accord Crosstour EX-L 4WD comes in the form of a variable-valve-timed (VVT) 271-hp, 3.5-liter V6 engine. A 5-speed automatic transmission helps the six-banger put out 254 lb-ft of torque, good enough to tow 1,500 pounds of trailer with the available towing package installed. Mileage, meantime, is estimated at 18 mpg city/26 highway. A center limited-slip mechanical differential is at the heart of the 4WD system and allows Honda’s Real Time 4WD to automatically and instantaneously switch the EX-L 4WD from its usual front-wheel drive (FWD) configuration to front and/or rear-wheel drive (RWD) when traction demands call for power to the wheels that grip.

Standard safety features aboard the 2011 Accord Crosstour EX-L 4WD reflect the rest of the lineup. Four-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) complement traction and stability control, while inside, front side-mounted airbags, front and rear head airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection help keep occupants safe. Additional safety features include daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights and a remote antitheft alarm.

EX-L 4WD w/ Navigation

Avg. Price: $22,937

Adding a standard voice-activated navigation system to the 4-wheel-drive-equipped (4WD) flagship trim begets the 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour EX-L 4WD w/ Navigation. This midsize 4-door, 5-passenger hatchback/crossover may not look pretty, at least to some, but it’ll handle 51.3 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded. Rest assured that its Accord sedan and coupe siblings can’t do that. And the Accord Crosstour handles almost like the sedan, while its acceleration isn’t far behind the coupe's. Besides its namesake navigation system, which also includes a backup camera, such standard luxury features as leather upholstery, heated, power-adjustable front seats, driver memory for the seat and outside mirrors, and leather and simulated alloy accents inside, as well as 18-inch alloy wheels and a power sunroof outside give this oversized Accord some additional panache. Added to the list of standard goodies are remote power door locks, power windows and heated outside mirrors, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, cruise control and dual-zone climate control. Standard techno-gizmos, meanwhile, include a universal remote garage door opener and a 380-watt audio system with 6-CD changer, seven speakers, satellite radio and a USB connection. A Bluetooth hands-free data link is also delivered with this top-shelf hatchback. All this is why the “L” in EX-L stands for Luxury.

Options for the 2011 Accord Crosstour EX-L 4WD w/ Navigation are all dealer-installed and include upgraded 18-inch wheels, underbody spoilers, a roof rack, backup sensors and remote engine start.

A 3.5-liter, variable-valve-timed V6 powerplant is standard in the 2011 Accord Crosstour EX-L 4WD w/ Navigation, and mated with the 5-speed automatic transmission, it puts out 271 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. All this is good enough to tow 1,500 pounds of trailer, as long as the available towing package is installed. Expect 18 mpg city/26 highway in this beefed-up Accord, with Honda’s Real Time 4WD system managed by a mechanical, center limited-slip differential. This unique configuration allows power to be transferred from front-wheel drive, the ordinary drive mode, to wheels that grip, front and/or rear, when traction needs dictate.

Safety-wise, the 2011 Accord Crosstour EX-L 4WD w/ Navigation sports standard 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) as well as traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags, front and rear head airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection.
