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 New for 2010

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)

"Very solid. I had a CR-V 2013 before buying a Crosstour. Why did I change it ? Because of suspension. Crosstour suspension is superior to CR-V. It is solid and comfortable. I really like this car."

Have owned 5 Hondas in family, Crosstour is fav!

"I've owned the Civic sedan and coupe models and the CRV prior to purchasing this car. I liked all of them but I LOVE, LOVE the Crosstour! I just purchased a 2012 EX-L AWD V6 with nav used and it is by far the nicest Honda, or any make of car in fact, that I have ever owned. It handles great despite being a big, heavy car. I am getting 22 mpg city, has lots of power, and plenty of room. I like that it is unusual looking in style. There are tons of Civics and CRVs on the road but I rarely see a Crosstour and I like having something that is different rather than fitting in with the crowd. I love all of the features that come with the EX-L. The sound system is great. The ride is very comfortable. I am petite and love that the driver's seat adjusts in so many ways. The first time ever in my life I am able to see out over the hood of the car I am driving with a seat that raises in height! Also love the memory for the seat and side mirrors settings so no more having to spend 5 minutes trying to get them readjusted after my 6 foot tall husband drives the car. The rear view took a bit to get used to but after driving it for a couple of weeks and getting comfortable with the rear camera, I am at ease with it. I am 58 and plan on this being my last car. I love it so much I don't ever want to part with it. Too bad Honda stopped making them. The Crosstour truly is a fantastic vehicle."

"The body style took a bit of getting used to. Quite different for Honda but similar in characteristics to BMW X6 and other high priced cars. The Crosstour 3.5 V6 has excellent power and is a very stable car to drive in inclement weather. We often go out with friends and will take our Crosstour as it is much more comfortable than the standard SUV types they drive. My next venture to WY to participate in dig will require a bit of off road (not of the serious nature) so Im looking fwd to seeing how it performs in these conditions."

"I've been driving Honda since 1988 starting used and moving to new civics and then a pair of accords. I never really liked my 09 accord but this Crosstour more than makes up for it. I wanted a reliable, comfortable, quiet, 4wd car mostly for my 75 mile ride to the office. I live on a dirt road and the NH snow demanded 4wd. I still think the car looks a little weird and seeing out the back is tough but my crosstour drives like a car should. (the passing camera and backup cameras are actually useful) I've been getting 30mpg to/from the office when I mostly use the cruise and the V6 allows me to 'jump to light speed' when I need to. Its a joy just having that much power/acceleration available. Very comfortable seating in both in the pilot and navigator seats. I even spent 3 hours as super cargo and was comfortable in the back. Sad 2015 was the last model year for this great car."

"I haven't liked this car since two weeks into ownership. It drives like a cheap car. It's only "pro" lies in its cuteness. What I despise the most is the interior. Even though mine is considered tan, everything but the seats is black! The carpet appears to have been woven with Velcro in mind. This darn thing makes its own decision about when it should lock itself. It's so very aggravating to exit the car, walk to the back to get packages only to have to return to the front (no matter the weather) to unlock the hatch. The paint finish isn't all that great either. OBVIOUSLY designed by a man, nothing attractive about the interior and the new electronic control panels are difficult to get used to as so much of it is redundant. But iisnt it nice the way its so very manly looking in a blue light computer sort of way! Be nice if it made sense."
