2010 Honda Accord Crosstour vs. Its Competition

2010 Honda Accord Crosstour EX-L
John Voelcker John Voelcker Senior Editor

The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour competes most directly with the Toyota Venza, another attempt at redefining the crossover with more sedan-like lines that debuted last year.

The Venza, however, offers a four-cylinder, six-speed-automatic combination that the Crosstour doesn't.

The Ford Edge and Mazda CX-7 are both a couple of years older, with the Ford occupying a more sedate family hauler niche against the Mazda's flair and sporty performance and handling.

Redesigned last year, the Nissan Murano is likely the most stylish of the group; all are strictly five-seaters,

Quick Specs
7.8
The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour expands all the good points of the legendary Accord brand into the crossover market; styling is its only weak point.
8.6
The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior.
7.8
The 2009 Toyota Venza adds another flavor to the crossover melting pot, but it's a mild one.
8.2
If you don't require a third-row seat, the 2008 Ford Edge is a fashionable, satisfying alternative in the crowded pack of mid-size crossovers.
8.2
The 2008 Mazda CX-7 is a good choice for single folks or couples who might not prioritize backseat or cargo space but want sport-sedan performance with a lot more utility.
