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.

2010 Honda Accord Crosstour Details

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)

"Have had this car for 3 years, when I told my wife I was going to buy her a new Crosstour she refused to let her Crosstour go. She said the new ones didn't have the stance or aggressive looks the 2012 does. It has made many trip to Florida down the east coast. Even though it's 3 years old it still get compliments. Has had no problems. Great ride plenty of room and gets better than advertised gas millage. Never sees the belly side of 80 and still gives me 30 mpg highway. Great storage space in back. And rear leg space is plenty for a 6 footer. Can't say enough positive things about this car."

"Hondas are great cars and this Crosstour is not the exception. I have had Hondas for the last 15 years and none of them gave me any troubles. The only reason why I don't give a 10 to this car, is because its visibility. side and back visibility should be better."

Cons: "rear view tight, turning radius,"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I saw this car on display at Costco and was fascinated by it from the start. I like the style and the cargo room it provides. I like the spacious cargo area that it can provide (6 foot ladder is no problem) in this SUV. I like the fact that it is sporty but has the versatility I need. The 4 cylinder 192 HP engine has plenty of go for me. I absolutely LOVE the backup cam. And for a 3,700LB. car it corners amazing with very little lean. I like the ability to start out in 2nd gear during slippery conditions during the winter. The turning radius is wider than I would like for parking and the rear view has some blind spots that you need to get used to."

Pros: "Ground Clearance, Highway MPG, Backup/Side Cameras"

Cons: "City MPG"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"My 2013 Crosstour has everything I wanted, except CITY fuel efficiency. I expected better than I'm getting with regards to CITY fuel efficiency, which makes that hit even more painful. However, highway MPGs are phenomenal and really make up for the loss, considering I live in a state with much rural travel time. That said, within the first thousand miles, we had to drive cross country in the car for a funeral, and 5,000 miles later, we were completely convinced we had made the right purchase. We averaged around 32 MPG on that trip. The comfort for three people and small dog was everything you could hope for on a 5 day, round-trip in a car. We only stopped for sleeping and a eating breaks. It was a ruthless trip, but the comfort of the Crosstour made it doable and halfway enjoyable. The backup camera and side view camera are awesome. The interior design is easy to adjust to - including controls for radio/settings/HVAC. The cargo space is plenty for a couple with pets or a couple kids. It's especially great when carting around older relatives who have trouble getting in and out of most other vehicles, because the ground clearance is superb. All cars should have the same ground clearance of the Crosstour, it's the perfect height for easy-on-the-body entrance and exit of a vehicle. Lastly, this is a vehicle that I feel safe in. We hit a deer going about 50mph ourselves, and the deer about 40mph. The passenger headlight took the brunt of the hit, and it didn't even crack. It did do some damage to the fender and some mounting parts behind the fender/light, but I was thoroughly impressed with the light still holding on and working after taking that hit. Overall, I give the car a 8/10. Truly, we do more city driving than anything else, and getting the MPG of a pickup truck is hurting the car's rating."
