Taking a gamble with a 5-door hatchback design, the new Accord Crosstour rips a page out of Subaru's playbook by adding all-wheel drive, a raised suspension, and bolder SUV-inspired design cues to a traditional car platform-in this case, the best-selling Accord sedan. Highlights include a standard V-6 engine, 6 inches of ground clearance, 51.3 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume, and space for 5 passengers.

The all-new 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour is positioned as the flagship model of the Accord lineup. It offers more cargo space than its parent model, and features a V6 engine as standard equipment. Honda defines the Accord Crosstour as an \"active grand tourer\": a modern CUV with sedan-like characteristics. Its main competitors include the Toyota Venza and the Subaru Outback.

The Accord Crosstour is offered in two trims: EX and EX-L. The base EX has 17-inch wheels; the EX-L has 18-inch wheels. The EX-L trim has leather upholstery with heated front seats, a longer menu of power features, Bluetooth connectivity, and an optional Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice-activated controls and a large points-of-interest database. With the rear seats folded down, the Accord Crosstour has 51.3 cu. ft. of cargo space. The exterior features a distinctive rear end and a streamlined tailgate.

The Accord Crosstour's 271-hp, 3.5-liter V6 engine with two-wheel drive delivers 18 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined, according to the EPA. With four-wheel-drive, mileage is 17 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined. An five-speed automatic transmission is standard.

Standard safety features include Vehicle Stability Assist, antilock disc brakes, tire pressure monitoring system, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Accord Crossover \"Good\" overall ratings in front- and side-impact tests. The NHTSA gave it five stars for all front- and side-impact tests.

The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour started with an MSRP of $29,670.
