KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 12/7/2012


A scaled-down alternative to traditional SUVs, the 2013 Honda Crosstour is a conundrum wrapped in an enigma wrapped in sheet metal. Think of it as the Swiss Army Knife of automobiles – equal parts sedan, wagon and SUV. But like a Swiss Army Knife, the Honda Crosstour's all-in-one design inherently limits the full potential of its various functions. For instance, the sloping roofline compromises both cargo versatility and overall styling, providing its more visually appealing rivals like the Toyota Venza, Ford Edge and Subaru Outback with a near 30-percent advantage in cargo space. Nonetheless, the 2013 Crosstour might be the ticket for those who appreciate the impressive build quality of the Honda Accord sedan but find its conventional trunk and lack of optional all-wheel drive (AWD) too limiting.

You'll Like This Car If...

If sedan-like driving characteristics top your list of priorities, the 2013 Honda Crosstour could be the wagonoid you've been looking for. Class-leading fuel economy figures, along with Honda's enviable reputation for reliability, make the Crosstour a solid choice for buyers who favor substance over style.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Today's marketplace is teeming with SUVs that offer significantly more cargo room than the 2013 Crosstour. In addition, a similarly-priced Ford Explorer or Toyota Highlander includes a comparable level of standard equipment as well as a third row of seating (unavailable on the Honda).

What's New for 2013

After three years of production, the Honda Crosstour undergoes a mid-cycle refresh for the 2013 model year. Key changes include revised exterior styling, upgraded interior materials, a 7-horsepower bump for the optional V6, and a newly-available HondaLink infotainment system with Aha Radio compatibility.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Despite its unconventional looks, the 2013 Honda Crosstour's underpinnings are firmly rooted in the Honda Accord family sedan. On long stretches of open road, the Crosstour possesses the same light and agile driving dynamics as its sedan-equivalent. The handling is crisp and precise, with body roll and lean kept to a minimum in all but the most hardcore driving situations. The 2013 Crosstour's 3,700-pound curb weight should act to hold it back, but acceleration and throttle response from the 278-horsepower V6 is quite impressive. Honda's Active Sound Control system cancels out unwanted engine and road noise for a more quiet ride. The Crosstour's raised ride height gives the driver a commanding view of the road ahead, though rearward visibility is problematic through the narrow rear glass and the bodywork that surrounds it.

Favorite Features

HIDDEN REMOVABLE UTILITY BOX
Made of plastic for easy cleanup, the removable utility box adds some two cubic feet of concealed storage space to the rear cargo area.

REAL TIME 4WD
Unlike the Honda Accord, the 2013 Crosstour offers the all-weather capability of available Real Time 4WD. Under normal driving conditions, power is shunted only to the front wheels, improving fuel economy. If the system detects a loss of traction at the front, torque is automatically routed to all four wheels for better grip.
