Why the 2013 Honda Crosstour Matters:
Slotted between the 5-passenger CR-V and the 8-passenger Pilot on the Honda crossover SUV continuum, the 5-passenger Crosstour is built for the Honda Accord buyer who wants a comfortable cabin combined with added cargo-toting versatility. Built on the previous-generation Accord platform, the Crosstour never quite caught on with consumers, but Honda is hoping that a thorough refresh for 2013 will convince more crossover buyers to consider one.
The new 2013 Honda Crosstour debuted to the public at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, and is on sale now. Key competitors include the Ford Edge, GMC Terrain, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Nissan Murano, and Subaru Outback.
