Honda Accord Crosstour takes versatility to a new level
Available AWD and standard V6 power define Honda’s latest do-it-all

Though the Honda Accord Wagon was dropped from production some time ago, the legendary Accord lineup has been offering customers the choice between a Coupe and Sedan on showroom floors for years.

For 2010, the Accord family will be re-joined by a model like no other. It’s called the Accord Crosstour, and its job is to build on the Accord’s proven quality and safety with a whole new level of utility.

“Our concept is to broaden the appeal of the Accord line-up by leveraging traditional Accord strengths of fun-to-drive performance and handling, while also adapting to shifts in the Canadian light truck marketplace,” says Jerry Chenkin, Executive VP of Honda Canada Inc. “The all-new Accord Crosstour achieves this by offering a modern interpretation of a Crossover Utility Vehicle, while integrating the refinement and efficiency of a premium sedan.”

The Accord Crosstour is derived from the proven Accord platform-- though it offers expanded cargo-carrying capability, unique styling and All Wheel Drive capability. Ideal for active families who don’t slow down when the weather gets nasty, the Accord Crosstour is engineered for year-round performance on virtually any terrain.

The Accord Crosstour is instantly recognizable from any angle. Thanks to its heavily restyled body and unique proportions, the Crosstour has a distinctive and chunky grille, flanked by unique headlamps and integrated fog lamps, and a front end offset by a dynamically sculpted hood. The rear end features a sleek hatchback execution, unique tail lamps and dual-outlet exhaust. With various metallic accents and contrasting colours, the Accord Crosstour looks stylish, exclusive and futuristic from any angle.

Styling efforts are executed for more than just cosmetic purposes here. The unique shape enables a commanding view of the road ahead and plenty of visibility, but without giving the Crosstour the typical blocky, chunky SUV shape. Both the commanding view ahead and abundant outward visibility help to enhance driver confidence.

Chenkin comments, “SUV buyers like the comforts of an SUV and the commanding view of the road that comes with a high eye-point. The Accord Crosstour meets the needs of Canadian buyers looking for these attributes, while providing an image that is different from a conventional SUV.”

Though full details hadn’t been released at the time of writing, Honda says the Crosstour will come standard with a 3.5 litre VTEC V6 engine, as well as available All Wheel Drive (AWD). Shoppers can expect horsepower in the 265 to 270 range, a five or six-speed automatic transmission, and intelligent AWD operation that works with no driver decision-making.

As with all Honda products, shoppers can also expect a plethora of thoughtful features designed to maximize interior space utilization. Abundant storage compartments and space-maximizing interior packaging are all on the horizon and Honda says the five-passenger interior will also boast an innovative rear storage area with a removable bin. Lever-activated folding rear seats and a premium, accommodating atmosphere are promised as well.

If you want to be the one of the first to test drive the new Crosstour, call or click the button below to set up a time. The Accord Crosstour goes on sale this fall.
