Honda Shaking Things Up on the Crosstour Wagon

Looking for a change that does not include the Accord brand? Honda has made minor changes to the Crosstour wagon for the 2012 model year. The Crosstour was introduced for the 2010 model year.

For 2012, auto headlamps, a backup camera, Bluetooth and a USB port join the list of standard equipment. And there are two new colors, Twilight Blue Metallic and Basque Red Pearl.

Gone is the Accord name. Honda now calls the vehicle the Crosstour. It is available in two trim levels, EX and EX-L.

Power still comes from a 3.5-liter V6 engine with cylinder-deactivation technology. Output is rated at 271 hp.
