Things finally seem to be falling into place for the 2013 Honda Crosstour. With customers continuing to right-size their purchases and becoming comfortable with more car-like crossovers, the current Crosstour has seen a bit of a renaissance lately. Sales were up 19.3 percent in October, and have increased 7.7 percent so far this year, and now the automaker is ready to debut a more powerful, more fuel-efficient 2013 Honda Crosstour, with enhanced styling, for the 2013 model year.
The result is a more finished and upscale appearance from all angles, signaling a similarly premium interior, but the fact of the matter is that the automaker also has reduced the starting price for the 2013 Honda Crosstour by a not-insignificant $525.
With the automaker already announcing that the Crosstour’s corporate sibling—the Acura ZDX—is now in its final year on the market, you have to wonder if the Honda version is entering a make-or-break season, too. So, let’s take a quick gander at how Honda has goosed the Crosstour for 2013 to see which is more likely.
