Post Honda tweaks Crosstour moniker, no longer sullies Accord's good name

Filed under: Crossover, Honda



Ah, the Honda Crosstour. The oddly shaped, curiously impractical crossover carries on for another model year, albeit with a slightly shortened name. That's right, for 2012, Honda has dropped the 'Accord' name from the Crosstour, meaning it will now have to stand alone in the automaker's lineup (and on the company's sales charts, natch).

Name change aside, there aren't many big updates for the 2012 model year. Base EX models now benefit from standard auto on/off headlamps, rear-view camera, Bluetooth and USB audio interface. Add a few new colors to that list, and we've wrapped up the whole list of updates for 2012. Pricing starts at $30,340 for the entry level 2WD EX, excluding $810 for destination.

The Crosstour continues to be powered by Honda's tried and true 3.5-liter V6, producing 271 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque, mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Curiously, there's still no four-cylinder option, though that may change after an updated inline-four debuts in the CR-V later this year.

Follow the jump for Honda's full press blast about the 2012 Crosstour, and remind yourself of its not-so-pretty face in our attached high-res image gallery. If we're honest, it's still a little sad that we live in a world where the Honda Element can no longer exist, but the Crosstour continues to live.Continue reading Honda tweaks Crosstour moniker, no longer sullies Accord's good name
