2012 Honda Crosstour Drops the Accord Name

Honda has announced the updates to the Accord Crosstour, which for 2012 drops the Accord part of its name and is now strictly referred to as the Honda Crosstour.

Although Honda did change the name for 2012, one feature that was expected, a four-cylinder, is not being introduced. For 2012 the Crosstour’s only engine remains the 3.5L V6 with 271 horsepower and 254 lb-ft. of torque that is mated to a five-speed automatic. The front-wheel-drive Crosstour gets 18 mpg city and 27 mpg on the highway, while the AWD version gets 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

The Crosstour is only available in two trim levels, EX and EX-L. For 2012, new features on the Crosstour EX include auto on/off headlights, a rearview camera, Bluetooth and a USB audio interface.

The 2012 Honda Crosstour starts at $30,430.
