2010 Honda Accord Crosstour
The Honda Accord Crosstour is a midsize crossover wagon designed to offer a luxurious middle ground between the Accord sedan and the Honda Odyssey minivan. The current flagship of the Honda lineup, the 5-passenger Accord Crosstour is offered with front- or all-wheel drive and a standard 6-cylinder engine mated to an automatic transmission.
The Honda Accord Crosstour is an all-new entry for 2010. Designed to compete against the Toyota Venza, the styling of the Crosstour is reminiscent of the all-new Acura ZDX. (However, despite their visual appearance, the two are not mechanically related.) The Accord Crosstour is built on a modified Honda Accord platform, as its name implies. While the Accord Sedan is not offered with all-wheel drive, the Accord Crosstour is. This meant the engineers had to modify the rear suspension to accommodate the all-wheel-drive system borrowed from the Honda CR-V.
In terms of size, the Crosstour is a couple inches larger than the Accord Sedan, a couple inches wider, 7 inches taller, and about 500 pounds heavier. While passenger volume between the two is nearly identical, the Crosstour offers more cargo capacity and light towing abilities.
