Honda Crosstour (2012) - pictures, information & specs
The 2012 Honda Crosstour approaches the crossover SUV formula from a distinctively sleek, sporty and fuel-efficient perspective while also maximizing the interior's cargo capacity, versatility and premium feel. For 2012, the official name becomes Crosstour, replacing Accord Crosstour (2010 and 2011 models).
The Honda Crosstour's exterior design emphasizes a bold, aerodynamic look that also conceals an accommodating rear cargo area with a large, lift-over tailgate. Premium interior styling, appointments and details extend from the passenger compartment all the way through the cargo area. An under-floor storage area in the rear of the vehicle adds functionality, while reversible cargo floor panels accommodate dirty objects.
The Honda Crosstour is available in two trim levels, the Crosstour EX and EX-L, with Real Time 4WD also available on the EX-L model. For 2012, new features on the Crosstour EX include auto on/off headlights, a rearview camera, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and USB audio interface. Two new colors are also available on all Crosstour models: Twilight Blue Metallic replaces Glacier Blue Metallic, and Basque Red Pearl replaces Tango Red Pearl.
The Honda Crosstour comes standard with a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) for power and efficiency. The engine produces 271 horsepower at 6,200 RPM and 254 lb-ft. of torque at 5,000 RPM, while achieving an EPA-rated city/highway/combined fuel economy of 18/27/21 mpg on 2WD models. Meanwhile the Crosstour EX-L with Real Time 4WD delivers an EPA-rated city/highway/combined fuel economy rating of 18/26/21 mpg.

2013 Honda Crosstour
The 2013 Honda Crosstour also receives enhancements on the safety front including available Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW). Other safety upgrades to the 2013 Crosstour are designed to help it earn top IIHS roof-crush safety scores, as well as a 5-Star NCAP rating.
The two different four-cylinder Honda Crosstour models, the 2-wheel-drive EX and EX-L, are powered by a 2.4-liter, 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC® engine. The four-cylinder models significantly broaden the Crosstour's appeal through a lower price point and EPA-estimated fuel economy rating1 of 22 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined. The 4-cylinder engine produces 192 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 162 lb-ft. of torque at 4400 rpm. A technologically advanced 5-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control is standard equipment.
The new available Earth Dreams™ 3.5-liter, 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC® V-6 engine utilizes Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) to maximize efficiency, allowing the engine to run on 3 or 6 cylinders, depending on engine load and speed. For 2013, power output climbs to 278 horsepower at 6200 rpm, a 7-hp gain over the 2012 Honda Crosstour V-6. Peak torque output is now 252 lb-ft. at 4900 rpm with a much wider torque spread. The net result is a more responsive engine across the rev range that drivers use every day, combined with better peak power for quick acceleration, passing, and climbing grades. The Crosstour V-6's new 6-speed automatic transmission also includes new steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Fuel efficiency for the V-6 is also significantly improved, with it now achieving an EPA-estimated city/highway/combined fuel economy rating of 20/29/23 mpg on Crosstour 2WD models and 18/28/22 mpg for the Honda Crosstour EX-L with Real Time™ 4WD. Compared to the 2WD 2012 Crosstour V-6, this represents a 2 mpg improvement in city/highway/combined fuel economy.
Since its debut as a 2010 model, the Honda Crosstour has created its own unique crossover SUV identity with a distinctively sleek, sporty and fuel-efficient style. This continues for 2013 with a newly refreshed exterior that provides a more rugged, active, and premium look, while still concealing an accommodating rear cargo area with a large tailgate. An under-floor storage area in the rear of the vehicle adds even more functionality, while reversible floor panels accommodate messy cargo.
Standard exterior features on Crosstour EX include chrome door handles, 17-inch alloy wheels and P225/65R-17 all-season tires. Additional exterior features on the Honda Crosstour EX include auto-on/off projector-beam headlights, a one-touch power moonroof with tilt, body-colored folding power side mirrors with defrost, auto-up/down driver's and front passenger's windows, and rear privacy glass. The top-of-the-line Crosstour EX-L V-6 model adds 18-inch alloy wheels with P225/60R-18 all-season tires.
The Crosstour has inspired handling, thanks to its double-wishbone front and independent multi-link rear suspension, front and rear stabilizer bars, and front strut tower bar. All Honda Crosstour models include power-assisted ventilated front and solid rear disc brakes. For true utility-vehicle capability, the Crosstour provides 6.2 inches of maximum ground clearance in addition to the available Real Time™ 4WD system.
Premium interior styling, appointments and details extend throughout the Crosstour's versatile passenger compartment, which is further improved for 2013 with upgraded interior design and materials. Inside the Honda Crosstour EX are automatic air conditioning with an air-filtration system (dual-zone automatic climate control on EX-L V-6), a 360-watt AM/FM 6-disc audio system with seven speakers, Bluetooth™ HandsFreeLink®, a USB audio interface, steering wheel-mounted cruise, audio and phone controls, an auto day/night dimming rearview mirror, an easy fold-down 60-40 split rear seatback, a hidden removable utility box and more.
Crosstour EX-L models add leather-trimmed seating surfaces with heated front seats, memory driver's seat and memory side mirrors with reverse tilting capability, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob, Kevlar® cone audio speakers, front aluminum dome-type tweeter speakers, HondaLink™ with Aha™ compatibility, Pandora® Internet radio compatibility, XM® Radio, compass and outside temperature indicator (also included on EX V-6), and more. The EX-L V-6 model also adds a HomeLink™ transmitter.
The Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System is available on Crosstour EX-L models, and all EX-L and above Crosstour models feature an upgraded multi-view rearview camera with guidance lines integrated into the display. Real Time™ 4WD is available on the Honda Crosstour EX-L V-6.

Standard on Crosstour EX-L models is Honda's new Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems. FCW can alert the driver when a potential collision with another vehicle ahead is detected, where LDW can alert the driver when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use.
A series of visibility enhancements on the 2013 Crosstour can improve safety by increasing the driver's awareness of other vehicles, pedestrians or other obstacles that are around the Honda Crosstour. Standard on all Crosstour models, save the four-cylinder EX, is Honda's exclusive new LaneWatch blind spot camera. Other improvements on all Honda Crosstour models include reshaped rear headrests that enhance rearward visibility, a standard rearview camera, and a new Expanded View Driver's Mirror.
2015 Honda Crosstour Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos
The Honda Crosstour isn't the return of the Accord Wagon that many missed from generations past. And that's too bad. Instead, it's a tweener crossover vehicle with a hatchback shape that's less practical than a wagon or full-figured crossover, with styling that doesn't share the Accord sedan's taut lines. Its major selling point, aside from a little more cargo space, is that it offers all-wheel drive, while all Accord four-doors make do with front-wheel drive.
When the Crosstour first hit showrooms, it was actually called Accord Crosstour. This made sense, since it was based on the Accord sedan sold at that time. Since then, it has dropped the Accord name, while the Accord itself has moved on to a new generation, leaving the Crosstour behind as a husky relative with sluggish handling.
True to its name, the Crosstour offers Americans some SUV-esque appeal, teasing more utility than what may be found in Honda's sedan, the Accord. It rides a couple inches higher than its four-door sibling, and its roof reaches about 4-inches taller overall. Its front row offers enough room for drivers and front passengers to have spirited, expressive hand-waving conversations without fear of inadvertently hitting each other, but rear space is compromised by a sloping roofline and a greenhouse tapering inward, cramping headroom. Aft of the rear seat, strut towers encroach on the Crosstour's cargo area, which is only saved by rear seatback that flip forward to make the space more usable. However, if there's one bright spot about the Crosstour's trunk, it's the big storage area beneath its floor. It's large enough for a laptop bag or briefcase, and its lid can be flipped revealing an easy-to-clean surface for dirtier cargo, like a muddy pair of boots.
Review continues below
Unchanged from the year before, two engines—in inline-4 and V-6 formats—power the Crosstour. The majority of buyers will find the smaller, 192-horsepower four-cylinder wholly adequate for the day-to-day duties of family life. It's mated exclusively to a five-speed automatic with front-wheel drive. Honda's newest Earth Dreams engine, a 3.5-liter V-6 rated at 278 horsepower and 252 pound-feet or torque, sends power to the Crosstour's front or four wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. That transmission can be manually shifted through steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Once a point of pride for Honda enthusiasts, the Crosstour rides on the double-wishbone front suspension previously used by the Accord. (During its last redesign, the Accord switched to a front-strut suspension layout for easier ride and handling tuning, Honda claimed.) Front and rear stabilizer bars further enhance the Crosstour's handling, while hydaulic power steering gives better feedback than the electric power steering systems fitted to other models in Honda's lineup, including the newer Accord.
Fuel economy also lags behind that of an Accord sedan, but it's decent compared to true, boxier crossovers. Four-cylinder models are rated by the EPA at 22 mpg in the city and 31 on the highway, while the front-drive V-6 now gets ratings of 20/30 mpg. The V-6-only all-wheel-drive models aren't far behind, with ratings of 19/28 mpg.
The Crosstour drives as its spec sheet suggests: like a 300- to 500-pound heavier, somewhat taller, and less nimble Honda Accord. With or without that knowledge, you'll be surprised to find that the Accord sedan's nimble feel is simply missing here, especially at lower speeds.
The NHTSA has rated the Crosstour only in its rollover tests, awarding it four stars out of five. The IIHS gives it a 'good' score in available tests--it hasn't been subjected to the new small-overlap test. Its safety-feature set includes available Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW). It also offers Honda's LaneWatch blind-spot display, which shows a wide-angle view alongside the vehicle's passenger side when you activate the right turn signal.
The base EX model includes a nice complement of standard equipment, such as an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth, USB input, steering wheel-mounted controls, and air conditioning. Top-trim EX-L models get leather-upholstered heated seats with matching leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone automatic climater control, and HondaLink infotainment with enhanced voice-to-text SMS functionality and additional integration with the Pandora smartphone music streaming app. The V-6 is available at either trim level, while all-wheel drive can only be found on six-cylinder EX-L models.
2018 Honda Crosstour: Rumors, Design, Arrival
Honda’s first attempt with the Crosstour model ended ingloriously with the discontinuation in 2015. Due to slow sales, this model left the production lines in order to make more room for the Acura MDX, RDX and Honda CR-V models. Honda also launched the smaller HR-V crossover in 2016 as the successor for the Crosstour with the design which fits better with modern market demands. However, as per some speculations from the car industry, Honda might return this nameplate in the form of 2018 Honda Crosstour. These speculations haven’t been commented by Honda but let’s see what rumors suggesting about this model.
2018 Honda Crosstour: Design
The Crosstour was actually the more versatile version of the previous-generation Accord. The model shared the platform with this popular sedan but with the wagon/hatchback design, higher ride height and increased cargo space this model provided more utility and all-weather prowess.
Based on the industry speculations, the new 2018 Honda Crosstour should again be based on Accord platform which the new-generation sedan will share with the recently redesigned Civic and CR-V models. The modern, lightweight construction of this platform should provide better dynamics and safety scores.
On the other hand, the exterior design should adopt Honda’s newest design language. The front will get the grille version similar as on the latest CR-V and new slim headlights. More sculpted front bumper and side panels should also improve the appearance of the new Crosstour. The model should also feature fastback roofline like some of the new crossover models which should also appeal to younger buyers. On its rear side, this car should include CR-V inspired taillights and sports bumper with dual exhaust setup.
Interior of the new Crosstour is speculated to have modernized dashboard, fresh materials and modern trim features. Seats will provide improved comfort and more rear comfort should be available thanks to more interior space.
The dash will include touchscreen interface based on Honda’s latest infotainment system and digitized instrument panel. Depending on the trim level this model will also include leather upholstery, power and heated front seats, a navigation system, premium sound system, and more. Numerous advanced safety systems will also be on the offer. The list of available driver aids should include adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, etc.
2018 Honda Crosstour: Powertrains
When it comes to the power options of the 2018 Honda Crosstour, there is isn’t general agreement about what decision Honda might make.
The base engine could be a 2.4-liter four-cylinder which should produce around 190 hp. However, the latest models coming from the Honda have the turbocharged four-cylinder engine like the latest Civic and CR-V. A 1.5-liter turbo four makes 190 hp and torque 179 lb-ft. This engine can also be the solution for the new Crosstour. But the new-generation Accord should also get a more powerful turbo engine which can also be in the game. A new version of Pilot’s V-6 engine might also be appropriate for the more powerful option.
If the new Crosstour would get a turbocharged engine, it should come with the CVT. However, Honda might use a 9-speed automatic and base version could get a six-speed auto transmission. Both the two- and four-wheel drive will be available if this model comes to the realization.
2018 Honda Crosstour: Arrival, Price
Honda is still reserved commenting about the 2018 Honda Crosstour. So, this model hasn’t yet been confirmed officially. However, we should expect this model in the first half of 2018. The price range should start from low $20, 000 if we want to believe to industry speculations.
Honda Crosstour Reviews | Honda Crosstour Price, Photos, and Specs
Considering Honda's Accord is all new for 2013, you might expect that the Accord-based crossover called Crosstour would get a similar makeover. But the common folk's X6 carries on unswervingly. Just like the hurriedly refreshed 2013 Civic, Honda's affordable family crossover gets mostly cosmetic changes. But there also is a slightly more powerful V-6 engine, and a number of equipment changes to keep the crossover wagon up to date. While Crosstour customers may be few and far between, they are a loyal bunch, and Honda does well to keep them happy with modest changes.
These changes, however, are easy to miss if you’re not paying close enough attention. For 2013, the grille is highlighted with a massive chrome frame, bringing it in line with the new Accord and face-lifted Civic. There now are vast amounts of unpainted cladding on the lower parts of the body, trimmed by a shiny metallic strip on the side and faux skid plates front and rear. Honda says it’s added a "more rugged" look to the Crosstour, and if this inspires you to go hunting or mudding, you will appreciate the reversible floor panels, which "accommodate messy cargo."
Whatever misadventure tickles your fancy most, chances are you won't get stuck out there, thanks to the Crosstour's 6.2-inch ground clearance and an all-wheel-drive system that is available on the V-6 model. The Crosstour's powertrain portfolio includes the essentially unchanged 2.4-liter four-cylinder—a pleasant, high-revving unit that makes 192 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque—and a new 3.5-liter V-6 with 278 hp and 252lb-ft of torque. Despite its Earth Dreams moniker, this engine is very much awake, serving up high levels of torque over a far wider stretch of the rev band than the previous V-6. Thanks to the car’s cylinder-deactivation system, it can run on three or six cylinders; the reward is decent fuel economy. The EPA estimates the front-wheel-drive V-6 will be good for 20 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway, while all-wheel-drive V-6 Crosstours will get marks of 18/28; the four-cylinder will be good for 22/31.
There isn’t much of a choice when it comes to the transmission, however; the V-6 comes with a pleasant six-speed automatic, while the inline-four is equipped with a dated five-speed slushbox. We'll keep complaints to a minimum, however, before Honda contemplates stuffing a CVT into the Crosstour.
Honda is keeping the interior under wraps for as long as possible. The Crosstour’s insides were not visible when the concept version sat on Honda’s stand at the New York auto show this past April, and even now, no photography has been provided. But in reading Honda's press release, we are informed that the passenger compartment "is further improved for 2013 with upgraded interior design and materials"—we don't expect revolutionary changes. What Honda reveals, however, is that the Crosstour features an ambitious set of nanny systems, some of which are new for 2013—such as lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, and a blind-spot camera that we actually found useful in the Accord sedan.
Even though the Crosstour now is based on yesterday's Accord, the practical crossover wagon still is an attractive proposition. To make sure your neighbors notice you got the latest one, remember to order one of the two new colors, Mountain Air, or the jarring Kona Coffee. At a starting price of $28,060—that's a price reduction of $525 compared to last year’s vehicle—it could be considered fair trade.
