2012 Honda Crosstour adds four-cylinder engine choice

2012 Honda Crosstour

Hoping to attract a new subset of more value-oriented buyers, the 2012 Honda Crosstour will add a 2.4-liter four-cylinder to its engine lineup starting in January. Shared with the Accord and only available in front-drive Crosstour models, this i-VTEC engine develops 192 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque compared to the 271/254 stats of the 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 that has been the sole Crosstour engine up to this point. In addition to offering a lower - albeit still undisclosed - price of entry, this four-cylinder alternative is projected to earn EPA city/highway numbers of 21/29 mpg when matched with the Crosstour's standard five-speed automatic transmission. Those figures reflect a roughly 10-percent gain in fuel economy versus the 18/27 mpg ratings of a front-drive 2012 Honda Crosstour V6.

In addition to gaining this new engine option, the 2012 Honda Crosstour expands its roster of standard features to include an automatic dimming rearview mirror, a rearview mirror back-up camera display on non-Navigation models, auto-on/off headlights, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and a USB audio interface. As before, this versatile five-passenger hauler will be offered in Honda Crosstour EX and leather-lined Crosstour EX-L trims.
