2011 Honda Accord Crosstour joins a growing list of vehicles that are not quite
wagon yet not fully
Subaru Outback and BMW X6). Sharing the same architecture as the venerable Accord, the Accord Crosstour offers more ground clearance, a larger cargo hold and available all-wheel drive. Although the sloping rear severely cuts into the cargo holds ability to carry taller items, the Accord Crosstour is still a competent alternative to the Accord
Sedan, providing all the attention to detail, interior comfort and fuel economy expected of a car carrying the Accord nameplate. If you can get past the Accord Crosstour's polarizing styling and somewhat lofty entry price, the car makes a viable alternative to bulky and fuel-thirsty SUVs.
"Absolutely love my CT! The style, ride, performance and cargo space is fabulous - comfortable and excellent in the snow (live in CT and was very happy to have this car after the winter we had!). Folks ask 'what kind of car is that?' and are shocked its a Honda - most think it's some new fangled Mercedes. Highly recommend to all."
"Handles beautifully, seats comfortable and with memory seat adjustment, 19 mpg in town. Quiet, smooth riding. Rear seats fold with ease for added cargo space. Door locks for child safety a plus. Rear view from hatchback strange at first. Looking forward to winter snow to drive this baby. As the commercial says, "I LOVE my Honda!""
Cons: "Doesn't have flight or weapons capability."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I bought this car with 133k miles. I have the EX-L with 4WD. It feels upscale and classy and it's probably the nicest car I've ever owned. I've owned two Chevy Silverado P/Us and an Avalanche. Even with 180k on it, the car feels solid and dependable. When I put the hammer down, it gets me past the annoying slow pokes and drunks. When it's snowing or raining, the car hugs the road and gives me the confidence to get to where I'm going. More than once I've thought about turning around on the way to work, but I've always made it safe and sound. I love my Crosstour. It's more than an Accord on steroids. It's in a class of its own."
