2010 Honda Accord Crosstour Review

By

The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour is the latest addition to the growing not-quite-a-wagon-but-not-quite-a-crossover segment. Sharing skeletal structures with the Accord Sedan, the Crosstour provides a viable solution for those who like everything about its hatch-less sibling, but want more cargo room, additional utility and a higher seating position. Competitors for the Crosstour include the wagon-esque Toyota Venza and the more crossover-like Nissan Murano, Ford Edge and Mazda CX-7.

You'll Like This Car If...

The 2010 Crosstour is worth a look for those that like the Accord Sedan but want additional space for stuff as well as a more commanding view of the road.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The base 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour starts very close to $30,000 – which is on the high side for the segment. And although the Crosstour boasts the most cargo room in the Accord family, it offers the least cubic-feet of any of its competition, even with the second-row seats folded flat.

What's Significant About This Car?

The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour incorporates many of the Accord family's styling cues into a bolder, bigger and more cargo-friendly package.

Driving the Accord Crosstour

Driving Impressions On the road, the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour delivers the same engaging driving dynamics that every Honda is known for. With instantaneous throttle response, tight steering and nimble handling, it's...

easy to forget about the extra metal in the rear, or that the car weighs almost 4,000 pounds. The overall ride is comfortable and quiet as the Accord Crosstour incorporates Honda's new Active Sound Control system, and the semi-high ride height gives the driver a commanding view of the road. Although rear visibility is good – even through the double-tiered rear glass – the addition of the rearview camera makes parking in tight lots and spaces much easier, considering the Accord Crosstour's large hindquarters.

Hidden Removable Utility Box
Adding 1.9 cubic-feet of space to the rear cargo area, the removable utility box is made of plastic and easily washable, perfect for items that would otherwise be messy in the main compartment.

Real Time Four-Wheel Drive
The Real Time Four-Wheel Drive (4WD) system lets the Accord Crosstour be more than just a grocery hauler, allowing it to tread safely regardless of weather.

On the inside, the Accord Crosstour shares the same five-passenger seating capacity, steering wheel, dash display and audio controls as the Accord Sedan. The similarities between the two end at the front of the vehicle, as the rear has a more functional wagon-like cargo area that maximizes the interior space, providing 25.7 cubic-feet with the rear seats up, and 51.3 cubic-feet with the seats down. The cargo area is the main highlight, as it also houses a removable utility box and side bins hidden beneath the carpeted floor. The utility box's lid is reversible, with a plastic underside that can used when transporting dirty or wet items. Other interior highlights include wood trim on the dash and door panels, one-touch release levers that easily fold down the rear seats and softer, more premium-feeling leather seating that gives this Honda an Acura-like feel.

The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour's looks can be polarizing. Some might be fond of the likeness to its Accord Sedan sibling, while others might look at its odd proportions and bold styling cues and denounce it completely. Nevertheless, Honda gave the Accord Crosstour an aerodynamic look, incorporating a sloping roofline and sweeping side body lines from front to back. The higher ride height, bold front grille and bulging fender arches impart a sense of muscularity, while its distinctive rear end sets it apart from most of the other cars on the road.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

Standard equipment on the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour includes a 3.5-liter V6 engine, a five-speed automatic transmission, power windows and door locks, a one-touch power moonroof, dual zone auto climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels and a 360-watt AM/FM/six-disc in-dash audio system with seven speakers. Other convenient standard features are 10-way driver and four-way passenger power adjustable seats, remote entry with power window control, a hidden utility storage compartment and 60/40 split rear seats with one-touch folding.

Optional Equipment

Optional equipment for the Accord Crosstour includes Real Time four-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels and a Honda satellite-linked navigation system with voice recognition and a rearview camera, all of which can be had only by choosing the up-level EX-L trim.

Under the Hood

The 2010 Honda Accord is powered by a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine that uses Honda's Variable Cylinder Management system, which allows the engine to run on three, four or six cylinders, depending on driving demands. The only transmission choice is a five-speed automatic that uses Honda's new G Shift Control, which holds the transmission in gear when the vehicle is cornering, and RPM rev-matching, which "blips" the throttle for smooth downshifts.

3.5-liter V6
271 horsepower @ 6200 rpm
254 lb.-ft. of torque @ 5000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 18/27(2WD), 17/25 (4WD)

"Long time Honda owner. I had no awareness of this car (had my Accord for 12 years) until I went car shopping with my friend & fell in love with it. Of course, I then had to have it though I did consider getting another (would have been 3rd) Accord. While the Accord is a great car, it is a bit of a snooze in the excitement department. I splurged & got the 6 cylinder/4WD/Navi model & am soooo happy with it. I spend my day driving to numerous stops as part of my job so I need comfort as well as reliability & space. I couldn't be more satisfied. I absolutely love the utility provided in a comfortable & stylish way & the oomph of 6 cylinders when I need it. I get compliments constantly. While it's too bad it wasn't more widely accepted & met its demise for that reason, I appreciate having something that is not mainstream."

"Car is everything a middle age person would want to drive. Sporty, Fast, Powerful, Comfortable, and just pure enjoyable to drive! Good gas for a 278 hp motor. As good a car as I have ever owned...and I have owned a lot of nice cars! "2010 Crosstour EX-L 3.5L V6 AWD""

Folow up after my trip.

"This is my wife's car and I usually don't drive it much. However, I recently drove it from the Midwest to Seattle through Montana. I did 1300 miles in 1 sitting....a nice test for a car. I had the cruise near 80 when the speed limits allowed..I also navigated a few mountain passes as well. I was very impressed with the car....it was probably the best road trip car I've ever driven...I have done this route 30 Plus times with various vehicles....many driving straight through. If you drive long distance on the highway and need adequate room, this is you're car. This car kncked down 31.4 MPG (1300 miles)average at mostly 80 MPH. If you drive it 70 MPH it'll get 32-34 and this car has a V-6...it also has cylinder deactivation so it stays in 3 cylinder mode most of the time. You also find out what kind of seats you have when you drive for 18 consecutive hours...these seats did very well. I also liked the ability to turn on the right side camera without turning on the turn signal. I also rocked the heck out of the xm radio(don't tell my wife) and it sounds pretty good. The most interesting and important feature for my particular trip was the LDW. (lane departure warning) This feature is especially important when fatique could become a factor. The light is calibrated perfectly...activating a foot or so from the line and keeping you out of trouble BEFORE you get into trouble. The LDW light comes on with an audible noise...which I couldn't hear at times due to my cranking of the stereo. However, the light does a good job of alerting, especially at night when those long drives get Looong. In closing, I felt better after this rad trip then any other one...and its due to the car not needing me "driving" it constantly. Its too bad Honda isn't building it anymore cause its a really great car.(mines a 2014 V-6) Its also 4WD to boot. The dealers still have a few left and they are going cheap. Great bang for the buck...and a Great road car...can't wait to see what it will do in the snow. Peace."

"Traded my Infiniti for this car and couldn't be happier. Better gas mileage, more room especially for tall son in the back seat. Overall more room than the Infiniti four door and much better gas. Only have to use regular gas which has saved a lot of money in the long run. Two negatives, the slope of the hatch back makes for rearrange of luggage for long trips and wish the hatch back came with automatic buttons and not the pull down handle. The bells and whistles that come automatically are a plus. Navigation very user friendly."

"I drove Cadillacs, large Mercedes or BMW's for three decades. Retired but not sedentary and liked the looks of the Crosstour. Decided to save money by buying the lower-end model (4 vs V-6, cloth interior vs leather). This car has a 4-clyinder engine that reminds me of my old Lotus sports car. Cruises easily at 100mph (in west Texas). Passengers often ask if the engine is turbocharged, since it has a power boost at around 3,000 rpm. My only complaint is that the seat belt fasteners are too low for my wife to easily buckle herself in."

"I've always been puzzled by the bad reviews. When I first bought the Crosstour in 2011, I never received more compliments and inquiries with any other car. It is solid, and reliable, with a strong engine, and never gets stuck in the snow. It is a real shame Honda have discontinued it after 2015. One of their problems was in promoting it as a type of SUV, when it is really just a great awd wagon. Sorry to see you go. Honda has lots of new model changes coming, but I don't think any fit the Crosstour niche."
