If you like the ride and handling provided by the Accord Sedan, but your versatile cargo needs exceed that of a traditional trunk, the 2012 Crosstour Wagon makes an excellent choice.
While its wagon-like shape emanates functionality over form, the Honda Crosstour's styling isn't for everyone. Those looking for a more traditional-looking wagon might find the Subaru Outback
Despite its radical looks, the 2012 Honda Crosstour Wagon's underpinnings are firmly rooted in the humble Honda Accord family sedan. On long stretches of open road, the Crosstour Wagon possesses the same light and agile driving dynamics as the Accord Sedan. The handling is crisp and precise with body roll and lean kept to a minimum in all but the most hard-core driving situations. The 2012 Honda Crosstour's 4,000-pound weight should act to hold it back, but acceleration with the V6 is impressive thanks in part to a responsive throttle t

"I purchased a new 2012 EXL,V-6 AWD w/NAVI in Nov. I traded a 2010 Accord EXL with 80K. I was sold by the ease of entry, the seating and AWD. The ride is superb, both during heavy rain and in snow. The mileage is just as expected, 20 mpg in urban, 26+ hwy. I drive about 30 K miles a year for work and am impressed by the comfort and support of the seats, better than my previous car. I did not purchase the car for the cargo area but carry work related tools--easy to load and unload from hatch area. Cargo area is still impressive. I purchased a cargo cover for privacy. It used to be standard with earlier models. I use the Voice Activated Controls & NAVI system extensively. I also had this in my Accord. I use the NAVI for more than just getting from point A to B. It is full of features and I find it intuitive. I am amazed at how many people comment positively (unsolicited) on the styling. The car is fun to drive."

"I love this car since the first time I saw it on a road trip a few years ago - "What is THAT?" I asked my husband. We couldn't figure it out until we got close up and noticed it said Honda Accord Crosstour. I later learned that "Accord" was dropped but just the same, being a Honda got my attention. In December, I was having major problems with my Jeep, which I had for 9 years and needed something similar. I was also having difficulty getting up to the high seat in the Jeep but waanted to stick an SUV but nothing was catching my attention. Finally, we went to see the CRVs since we had a Honda Accord before for 12 years. Walking through the showroom, we saw a beautiful red Crosstour with a reduced price tag. I got in and instantly loved it. I test drove the leather trimmed V-6 model and did NOT want to get out. My husband was sold as well. The next day, we purchased it and I love it more (as I get familiar with all the buttons) each time I drive. I used to hate driving to work in Washington DC every day but since I've been driving the Crosstour - I don't even notice the traffic - love listening to satellite radio, answering the phone with handsfree link, and thanks to the back up camera, I have less hassle getting into the parking space. I initially had a problem with the blind spots but someone suggested watching a Youtube video on how to set your side mirrors and I've not had any difficulties since then. Love, love this car. I just wished I could have afforded the navi system, but then I probably would have ended NEVER getting out!"
