Post Honda Crosstour gains four-cylinder model for 2012

Filed under: Crossover, Honda



Ever since the launch of the, uh, polarizing Honda Crosstour, the rumormill has been buzzing with word that Honda might someday add a four-cylinder engine to the lineup. Makes sense, since the Accord on which it's based offers a four-pot, and the CUV's key competitor, the Toyota Venza, also offers a more efficient four-cylinder powertrain.

The 2012 Crosstour - remember, it no longer wears the Accord name - will now be offered with a 2.4-liter inline-four in its EX and EX-L trims. Rated at 192 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, the front-wheel-drive, four-cylinder Crosstour is good for up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway (21 mpg in the city), and is mated exclusively to a five-speed automatic transmission. Unlike the top-trim EX-L V6 model, none of the four-cylinder Crosstours will be available with all-wheel drive. What's more, four-cylinder models will ride on 17-inch alloy wheels, whereas six-cylinder Crosstours can be had with 18-inch rollers.

New powertrain aside, the Crosstour remains largely unchanged for 2012. A couple of new paint colors are available, and formerly optional equipment like Bluetooth, auto headlights, a backup camera and an automatic dimming rearview mirror are now standard. Hit the jump for the full details in Honda's press release.Continue reading Honda Crosstour gains four-cylinder model for 2012
