2010 Honda Accord Crosstour Spied

2010-honda-accord-crosstour I’ll start off by saying that the name is a total rumor – Crosstour is not set in stone, nor official.  I included Accord in the name simply because as you can see from the photo, the 2010 Crosstour is clearly based on the Accord platform.  I think by the name Crosstour, people are considering this vehicle Honda’s latest CUV – an answer to the Toyota Venza. 

I’m hoping that Honda will do the right thing, and call this the 2010 Accord Wagon – because that’s exactly what it is.  It’s not a Crossover.  It’s not a CUV.  It’s a station wagon, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  If Toyota is afraid to call their latest creation a wagon, that’s fine.  But I like to think Honda is better than that.  Time will tell if I’m right though… wagon is a bad word in the states.

As for what to expect – we’ll likely see an interior layout similar to the Accord, with the exception of a large rear cargo area of course.  Don’t expect seating for more than 5 – it won’t be there.  Your choice of 4 or 6 cylinder engines, though no word on whether Honda will offer a stick.  AWD will be available however, which will surely be appreciated by our northern friends. 

The name, at least, of this new Honda creation should be available soon.  We’re expecting the “Crosstour” to debut towards the end of this year.
