Exterior Features
The 2013 Honda Crosstour is a midsize, 5-passenger crossover SUV based on the previous-generation Honda Accord platform. It is sold in EX and EX-L trim levels. Standard equipment for the Crosstour EX includes automatic headlights, fog lights, power heated exterior mirrors with an expanded-view driver's side mirror, dark-tinted rear privacy glass, rear window wiper and washer, and 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Interior Features
The 2013 Honda Crosstour EX is equipped with air conditioning, power door locks with remote keyless entry, power windows with automatic operation for the front glass, 10-way power driver seat, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and cruise control. A power sunroof is also standard, along with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, outside temperature indicator, sliding center console armrest, and a rearview camera system with the display embedded into the rearview mirror. The Crosstour EX also includes Bluetooth connectivity with music streaming, and a 360-watt audio system with a CD changer, USB port, auxiliary audio input jack, and an iPod connection.

The Crosstour's cargo bay includes an underfloor storage area and a reversible cargo floor, which makes it easier to haul messy items without soiling the carpet. With the rear seat in use, the Crosstour can carry 25.7 cubic feet of cargo. Fold the rear seat, and the vehicle offers 51.3 cubic feet of space.

Optional Features
New 18-inch aluminum wheels distinguish the 2013 Crosstour EX V6 model. This version also adds a new Lane Watch blind-spot camera to the EX model's list of standard equipment.

The Crosstour EX-L is equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats, heated front seats, memory for the driver's seat and memory settings, 4-way power front passenger seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, compass, 8-inch in-dash display for the reversing camera and information center, and a premium sound system with satellite radio. The Crosstour EX-L also includes new HondaLink smartphone integration technology with Aha and Pandora Internet radio, forward-collision warning system, and a lane-departure warning system.

In addition to a V-6 engine, the 2013 Crosstour EX-L V6 includes a universal garage door opener.

A navigation system is optional on the EX-L model, and it includes an upgraded multi-view reversing camera with guidance lines. Real Time 4-wheel-drive is optional for the EX-L V6 model.

Under the Hood
The 2013 Honda Crosstour is equipped with a standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine generating 192 horsepower. A 5-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic control delivers power to the front wheels.

A new 3.5-liter V-6 is optional and includes Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), which allows the engine to operate on 3 of its 6 cylinders under low-load conditions in an effort to improve fuel economy. The V-6 delivers 278 horsepower, 7 more than last year, and 252 lb.-ft. of torque with a broader torque curve than before.

The V-6 engine is paired with a new 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters mounted to the steering wheel. A Real Time 4-wheel-drive system is also optional with the V-6 engine.

Fuel Economy
As this overview is written, the EPA had not published official fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Honda Crosstour. According to Honda estimates, the updated Crosstour is expected to achieve the following fuel economy:

  • Crosstour 4-cylinder: 22/31/25 mpg (city/highway/combined)
  • Crosstour V-6 2WD: 20/29/23 mpg
  • Crosstour V-6 4WD: 18/28/22 mpg

Safety
Honda employs its Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure into the Crosstour's design, and updates for 2013 are intended to improve the crossover SUV's crash protection, in particular its Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) roof crush strength test result.

Additionally, the 2013 Crosstour includes 6 air bags, traction control, stability control, 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, reversing camera, and an expanded-view driver side rearview mirror.

A Lane Watch blind-spot camera is standard on the Crosstour EX V6, while the Crosstour EX-L adds a forward-collision warning system, and a lane-departure warning system. Models with a navigation system include a multi-view reversing camera with guidance lines.

As this overview is written, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the IIHS has performed crash tests on the 2013 Honda Crosstour.
