2013 Honda Accord Crosstour Gets New V6
Restyled Crossover Also Welcomes Bolder Appearance
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.
