New For 2013

The Crosstour is unchanged for 2013, but a refreshed model is on the way.


Honda’s Crosstour crossover might be a bit unloved—most crossover fans prefer the CR-V, and full-on wagon fans with enough scratch go for the Acura TSX sport wagon—but help is on the way in the form of the Crosstour Concept that signals a refreshed model coming soon. In the meantime, the Crosstour (formerly the Accord Crosstour) shares both of its namesake’s engines: a 2.4-liter in-line four-cylinder making 192 hp (front-wheel drive) and a 3.5-liter V-6 (FWD or all-wheel drive). As such, the Crosstour is like a high-riding Accord, with solid handling, reasonably good grunt, and decent fuel economy. Gas mileage is decent in in-line four-cylinder models and still fairly good in V-6 models, thanks to Variable Cylinder Management. The Crosstour’s unique styling—a sort of cross between a station wagon and an SUV—does create some ergonomic problems. Rear-seat headroom is sparse, and the cabin of the Crosstour is no more roomy than that of the Accord sedan, although there is a fairly significant amount of extra cargo capacity. The Crosstour strikes a good balance between design and versatility and represents a convenient option for car buyers torn between the mass of an SUV and the economy of a sedan.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags are standard, as are traction and stability control, ABS, and a tire-pressure monitoring system.

2014 Honda Crosstour Front Three Quarters
After a significant refresh last year, the 2014 Honda Crosstour is unchanged this year, although it does receive a slight price bump to $28,210, up $150 from last year. Originally named Honda Accord Crosstour, as it is essentially a crossover version of the Accord sedan, the model was renamed Honda Crosstour in 2012.
2013 Honda Crosstour Front Three Quarter
Honda revealed a "concept" version of the facelifted 2013 Crosstour at the New York show earlier this year. Now, the automaker has released full details and pricing on its updated Accord-based crossover. Most notable for 2013 is the Crosstour's new maw, which is less rotund and more crossover-like than before. The squared-off, chrome grille treatment also helps to tie the Crosstour to the 2013 Accord and Civic sedans better than the overly wide grille of the 2010-2012 model. A revised lower front fascia also incorporates chrome touches in the enlarged foglight surrounds and the faux skidplate. Around back are a silver-painted skid plate, new reflectors, and model badging placed lower on the hatch. Blacked-out trim and new wheels give the Crosstour a more squared-off and appealing overall look. The interior also pulls from the 2013 Accord's playbook – a new, smaller touchscreen has been incorporated into the center stack for the HondaLink infotainment system on upmarket EX-L models, and forward collision and lane departure warning systems have been made standard on EX-L. The new LaneWatch blind spot camera comes on all Crosstours save the base four-cylinder EX, but a backup camera is standard across the board. Honda will continue to offer a 2.4-liter I-4 rated at 192 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque mated to a five-speed automatic, which is offered with front-wheel drive only. There is also an optional Earth Dreams 3.5-liter V-6 good for 278 hp and 252 lb-ft, which replaces the 3.5-liter V-6 from last year. That engine is paired with an all-new six-speed automatic, and can be ordered with either front- or all-wheel drive. Honda has also managed to eke out a few more mpg from the four-cylinder Crosstour – it is now rated at 22/31 mpg city/highway, up from 21/29 mpg last year. V-6 models have gotten a boost in fuel economy as well: front-wheel drive variants rise by two mpg across the board to 20/29 mpg city/highway, while all-wheel drive Crosstours gain two mpg on the highway for an 18/28 mpg rating. Pricing starts at $28,060 for the entry-level, two-wheel drive Crosstour EX, which marks a $525 decrease from the 2012 price. All other Crosstour models have seen their prices swell by either $110 (for four-cylinder cars) or $450 (for V-6 cars). A front-wheel drive V-6 Crosstour EX starts $30,890. All-wheel drive is an $1450 option for either EX-L or EX-L Navi models with the V-6; navigation runs $2100 on top of any EX-L car. A fully-loaded 2013 Crosstour EX-L Navi with the V-6 and all-wheel drive rings in at $37,920. The Honda fairs well against its competition: the 2013 Toyota Venza starts at $28,545 and tops out at $40,155. A base 2013 Nissan Murano retails for $30,785 and can cost as much as $43,405.
