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)

"This is a wonderful car to drive. Very comfortable and roomy inside. Love the luxurious interior and comfy seats. My biggest problem is that I am only 5 feet tall and the driver's seat does not adjust up high enough for me to see over the hood which makes me a little uneasy. That is the ONLY thing that would hold me back from buying a new one. I also had a blindspot issue and was initially disappointed that I didn't wait one more year for the blindspot detection option; however, with that said, I did a little research and learned that my outside mirrors were not adjusted correctly. Once I did that, I no longer have a blindspot problem. Gas mileage has been great for a V-6. Several roadtrips have calculated out to 29 mpg."

"This car seemed to meet all my needs. Good ride, fairly quiet, lots of room, all wheel drive. But within 5K miles the V-6 with the variable cylinder system caused major vibration from 20-25 mph. According to Honda this is "normal". Resale is terrible. Dealers want no part of this car. NO ONE will give you anything for it, and Honda will not fix it. STAY AWAY ! I lost thousands on this car. The seats are hard as a rock and I was never able to fine a comfortable setting. I am done with Honda after nearly 30 years. Never again."

"I bought this car for the seating, and the cargo capacity without having to get an SUV while still retaining decent gas mileage. On straight, flat highways I've gotten 33 to 35 MPG, around town 18 to 22 MPG, and it's a comfortable, quiet ride. I really like the curb height, departure and approach angles to steep hills and driveways are nothing compared to my '07 Civic (had to approach at an angle) and the power of the 196 HP is really good for a 4 cylinder. Transmission shifts quite smooth, engine is quiet, and road noise on the highway is extremely minimal. The ride on bumpy/worn roads is great, suspension is soft yet firm. And the downhill assist is handy so you're not riding your brakes, and keeping the transmission in a lower gear on the uphill travel is also great so you're not lugging the transmission in a higher gear given whatever speed you're traveling. It took a little getting used to but it's a nice feature. The side view and rear view camera - handy. Especially since the rear has a little bit of a blind spot which only affects me when backing out of a parking spot, otherwise seeing other cars on the road isn't a problem. I love that the rear view camera has three angles - wide angle, normal, and straight down. Amazing. Overall, this is a GREAT car. The automatic roll-down windows via key fob was an unexpected surprise...great on a hot day to enter a car 30 seconds after the windows and moon roof have opened...especially a black car. I've recommended this car to two other people who wound up getting one and they love it as well."
