2011 Honda Accord Crosstour Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, Crosstour launched in 2010, so there are no changes for the 2011 model year. It remains essentially a slightly raised Accord wagon — although with notionally more style and less utility. This five-passenger crossover boasts a striking profile with a coupe-like roofline and is available in front- and all-wheel drive, with a 3.5-liter V-6 and 5-speed automatic transmission.
Debuting in 2010 was the Honda Crosstour and this vehicle is now a competitor in the growing Crossover Utility Segment. The Honda Crosstour is an Accord based wagon offering targeting empty nesters and retirees that are seeking sport, practicality, utility, and style. Since all the latter is identified in the Honda Accord, by extension, such features are also identified in the Honda Crosstour wagon.
The Honda Accord sports a 2.5-inch shorter body than the Honda Crosstour. The Honda Accord has a .3-inch larger ride height and .1-inch larger wheelbase. The Honda Crosstour has .4 ft.³ more passenger room than the Accord as well is far more cargo space than the latter vehicle. Both vehicles have the same V-6 engine and five-speed transmission. The Honda Crosstour is sold with all-wheel drive or front-wheel-drive configurations.
Consumers will find the styling of the Crosstour complex and somewhat compromised. The vehicle hosts an invasive strut towers located in the rear that diminishes the cargo capacity. It also has a sweeping roof contour that compromise is headroom. Nevertheless, the Honda Crosstour has light, tight driving dynamics.
With long overhangs and low roof, Crosstour attempts to cut a lean profile, but ends up looking awkward. Hard side and head on are its best angles, but it needs to be seen in person. As a premium variant of Accord, Crosstour offers standard dual zone climate control and an active noise canceling system to reduce engine noise. Storage options are numerous, but compromised due to intrusive rear strut towers.
Control arm front and multilink rear suspension give Crosstour a sporty ride and handling balance. The 5-speed auto has an exclusive rev matching feature, but still seems outdated with 6-, 7-, and even 8-speed transmissions on the market. The 271 horsepower V-6 has just enough beans to keep things fun, yet it can cruise on only three cylinders to conserve fuel. All passengers have 3-point seatbelts. Dual front, front-side, and side curtain airbags come standard, as do driver and front passenger active head restraints, stability/traction control and a host of braking aids (ABS, EBD, and BA).
