Default Honda yanks sheet off 2013 Crosstour, adds lower base price [w/video]

Filed under: Car Buying, Wagon, Videos, Crossover, Honda



The Honda Crosstour has been something of an automotive whatcha-ma-call-it. Buyers have found it hard to identify what the high-riding wagon is all about, and so have we. Honda even started out by calling it the Accord Crosstour, and then changed its name to help give it more of its own identity. But with other popular crossovers already in Honda's stables, trying to carve out a niche for the Crosstour has been no easy task.

To help strengthen the identity of the crossover-wagon, Honda has updated the Crosstour with more "refined styling," a number of content improvements and a lower base price. The first thing you will notice is the more utilitarian, "rugged" styling, with a pronounced front clip, fender flares and side skirts.

Under the hood lies one of Honda's new Earth Dreams family of engines. The base 2.4-liter inline-four makes 192 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, while returning 22 miles per gallon city and 31 miles per gallon highway. The available 3.5-liter V6 produces 278 horsepower, up seven from the outgoing V6, making it the most powerful engine in the Earth Dreams family. The V6 returns 20/29 for front-wheel-drive models, and 18/28 for V6 models equipped with Real Time 4WD.

The Crosstour is also available with a suite of safety technologies, including a backup camera, forward collision warning and lane departure warning. A set of less-technical safety improvements have been applied as well, including reshaped headrests for improved visibility and an expanded view driver's mirror.

The 2013 Honda Crosstour comes with a $27,230 base price - $525 less than the outgoing model - and goes on sale November 30, 2012. Only time will tell if these changes are effective enough to sway more buyers, but if you may be interested, check out the press release and video below.Continue reading Honda yanks sheet off 2013 Crosstour, adds lower base price [w/video]
