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.

Exterior

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)

"I feel like the car drives like a toy. I had a Honda Accord in the early 80's that I loved and drove over 200,000 miles but I can't wait to get rid of this one. The MOST aggravating thing is the annoying way you have to open the hatch. Forget approaching the vehicle with packages; you have to put them down, hit the button on the fob several times and then manually lift the hatch. Why not AT LEAST put a latch release inside the drivers door? I've had this car for over a year and it never fails that every door locks and cannot be unlocked without walking back around the car to hit the button on the drivers side. Additionally, I find the interior cabin quite tight. It is absolutely impossible to use the storage compartment between the seats, you'd have to be a contortionist. The USB port cannot be reached from the drivers seat even without wearing the seatbelt. You have to exit the car and kneel on the seat. But my personal favorite pet peeve is the fact that while I deliberately bought a non-black interior the flooring is still black and the carpet has all the properties of Velcro. I even bought tan bath mats to put I the floor of the back but it, of course, they don't stay put. Honda doesnt even sell tan car mats as far as I can find out. The car is very hot with all that black. (And hard to keep clean.) The technology is redundant and difficult to use. I've never had a car I dislike more unless perhaps it was the first Saturn back in the early 90s."

"Went looking for a replacement for my 2013 Acura Tsx Sport Wagon with Tech, after this past winter. Acura RDX was not discounted very much and the ride was stiff. Mazda CX5 didn't feel as nice as I hoped, but was ok. Edge was nice, but big. CRV has a CVT - did not like that at ALL. Drove the Crosstour just to see if I liked it, and I drove it home the next day. Great Driving 4wd vehicle. The ride is amazing, and smooth. LOVE the Double Wishbone Front suspension, always have. The back view is awful, but not to hard to get used to. I got the 4WD EXL V6 Navi for 33.4K ($38.3K) sticker. Roomy enough for my stuff and two Retrievers"

"Have had this car for 3 years, when I told my wife I was going to buy her a new Crosstour she refused to let her Crosstour go. She said the new ones didn't have the stance or aggressive looks the 2012 does. It has made many trip to Florida down the east coast. Even though it's 3 years old it still get compliments. Has had no problems. Great ride plenty of room and gets better than advertised gas millage. Never sees the belly side of 80 and still gives me 30 mpg highway. Great storage space in back. And rear leg space is plenty for a 6 footer. Can't say enough positive things about this car."

"Hondas are great cars and this Crosstour is not the exception. I have had Hondas for the last 15 years and none of them gave me any troubles. The only reason why I don't give a 10 to this car, is because its visibility. side and back visibility should be better."

Pros: "snappy power, agile on corners, spacious. and fun"

Cons: "rear view tight, turning radius,"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I saw this car on display at Costco and was fascinated by it from the start. I like the style and the cargo room it provides. I like the spacious cargo area that it can provide (6 foot ladder is no problem) in this SUV. I like the fact that it is sporty but has the versatility I need. The 4 cylinder 192 HP engine has plenty of go for me. I absolutely LOVE the backup cam. And for a 3,700LB. car it corners amazing with very little lean. I like the ability to start out in 2nd gear during slippery conditions during the winter. The turning radius is wider than I would like for parking and the rear view has some blind spots that you need to get used to."
