The Crosstour (initially branded the Accord Crosstour) was a full-sizecrossover SUV manufactured by Japanese automaker Honda. Sales began in November 2009 for the 2010 model year, and was discontinued for the 2015 model year because of slow sales. The Crosstour was replaced by the HR-V crossover for the 2016 model year.
The Crosstour sloted below the Pilot in size in Honda's SUV lineup; the Crosstour was longer but had two rows of seating compared to the Pilot's three and had approximately 50cu ft less interior space.
The Crosstour was a hatchback/wagon variation of the Accord and shared the same platform. The Crosstour was powered by the 3.5-liter V6 engine and a choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, with prices starting at $29,670, above those of the Accord sedan (which starts at just under $23,000).
The Crosstour was a competitor to the, now discontinued, Toyota Venza, a wagon based upon the Accord's perennial competitor, the Camry. And like the Venza, which was meant to replace the Camry wagon, the Crosstour did the same to the Accord wagon.
For the 2012 model year, Honda removed the "Accord" prefix, making the name just "Crosstour", and gave its front grille a restyle. An I4 engine for front-wheel-drive models was released in late 2011 and put on sale in early 2012.
The Crosstour was sold in the US, Canada, Mexico, China, Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Russia. The Crosstour had been built and marketed in China by GAC-Honda since October, 2010.
For the 2013 model year, Honda refreshed the Crosstour. A concept vehicle of the Crosstour was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show on April 4, 2012. The revised 2013 Crosstour went on sale on November 20 with a $500 reduction in price along with increased standard content. The interior was redesigned, a more powerful and fuel efficient Earth Dreams V6 engine coupled to a 6-speed automatic replaces the previous V6 and 5-speed automatic. Fuel economy for V6 models is improved to an EPA-estimated 20/30/23 mpg (city/highway/combined) for front-wheel-drive and 19/28/22 mpg for all-wheel-drive. Inside a 10-way power (2-way lumbar) driver's seat and auto-dimming rearview mirror also became standard on all trims.
On April 8, 2015, Honda announced that it was discontinuing production on the Crosstour at the end of the 2015 model year due to slow sales. Final production date was August 31, 2015. Another factor in Honda's decision is to free up space on the production line for the Honda CR-V, and Acura RDX, also in 2017 to start production on the Acura MDX. Honda has replaced the Crosstour with the HR-V crossover for the 2016 model year.
The 2013 Crosstour was available with a Forward Collision and Lane Departure Warning Systems. A rear-view backup camera was standard on all 2012 models, a more sophisticated rear camera with wide and top view angles was optional. Excluding the base EX trim a new LaneWatch camera mounted in the passenger side mirror was standard on 2013 models.
