When talking about the Honda Crosstour, of course the first thing everyone comments on is the exterior styling; ignoring this is like ignoring the proverbial elephant in the room. But climb into the driver's seat, grab hold of the thick steering wheel, and find some empty roads. The Crosstour's driving dynamics resemble those of the popular Accord sedan.
Rather than design this funky body, I would've liked to see Honda bring back the Accord wagon and offer all-wheel-drive. Now I know wagons aren't America's favorite body style, but I don't see this design sending buyers sprinting to dealerships either.
The Crosstour's cargo area, while big, isn't as big as it could be. The strut towers intrude way too far, and the slopped hatch opening limits how much can fit inside.
