If you spot a vehicle with a Honda badge that looks like a BMW X6 bred with a Dodge Caliber, then you are probably seeing the Honda Crosstour. The 2010 Accord Crosstour is Honda’s sedan mixed with hatchback SUV styling.
From the exterior, the ’10 Accord Crosstour is getting mixed reviews, with the Insight-esque nose to the high back, slightly narrow wheels, and visible odd covering of the under-mounted spare. With the high hatchback, you’ll want to go with the rear camera since visibility isn’t the greatest. The Crosstour also has some pretty big blindspots and unfortunately, Honda did not include some of the blindspot warning technologies that other manufacturers utilize.
The interior of the Accord Crosstour has the Honda feel but the center console is a bit confusing, with anti-intuitive controls. However, everything else about the Crosstour interior is premium, with an Acura feel without the Acura pricing. Under the hood, the Crosstour is all Honda. The engine is a 3.5L VTECH V6 that produces 271 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 254 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm. For a heavy SUV of this size, the Accord Crosstour gets decent mileage, with 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
The cargo space inside of the Crosstour is phenomenal, with almost 26 cubic feet in the back hatch. Put the seats down with the 60/40 split, and you have almost 51 feet of space. The hidden, waterproof, and removable storage box is a nice touch, allowing the driver to stow valuables out of sight or to keep dirty, messy items confined.
Base price for the 2010 Accord Crosstour starts at $30,390 for the 2WD EX. Our tester topped out at $36,930 for the 4WD EX-L model.
