Honda Accord Crosstour Overview

Introduced in 2010, the Accord Crosstour holds a unique position in Honda's lineup, becoming the automaker's first Crossover Utility Vehicle, or CUV, and launching a new automotive segment. The Crosstour combines attributes of a sedan and an SUV, resulting in a smooth, capable ride, quick handling, and a versatile cargo space.

Taller, wider, and longer than the standard Accord, the Crosstour shares its underpinnings, some of its exterior design, and most of its interior features with its stablemate. However, the Crosstour also departs from the standard Accord, thanks to such distinctive features as its sloped rear roofline, bolder front grille, textured rocker panels, and heavier rear end, which has generated some controversy. In addition, the Accord Crosstour comes equipped with a rear tailgate, which gives owners access to the cargo area. Other SUV-like features include under-floor storage areas and reversible cargo-area floor panels.

Inside, the Crosstour seats five passengers, with plenty of legroom and headroom, despite its sloping roofline. Upon introduction, Honda offers the Crosstour in two trims, as well as with a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive for the upper EX-L trim. Honda introduces a few innovations on the Crossover, including a reflection-minimizing screen coating for the optional navigation system and an audio system with Active Sound Control, which uses the sound system to cancel certain types of engine noise for a quieter cabin.

The Crosstour's five-speed automatic tansmission, which comes standard, also features a number of Honda firsts, including enhanced gear-holding capability, which takes G-forces into account when cornering, and more sophisticated downshift gearing, which now more closely matches engine revolutions for smoother shifting. The transmission links to a 3.5-liter, 271-hp V6 engine, which uses the latest generation of the automaker's Variable Cylinder Management system to help improve fuel economy.

The Crosstour offers 6 inches of ground clearance, further enhancing its SUV credentials. All the expected safety features, including Vehicle Stability Assist (Honda's electronic stability control system) and a full range of airbags, come standard.
