2013 Honda Crosstour Concept Live Photos: New York Auto Show

Follow Bengt

Honda's Crosstour might not have found a place with as many American families and empty nesters as Honda might have hoped, but it's at the very least one of the most adventurous vehicles the automaker has produced in recent years.

A couple of years ago Honda detached the Crosstour from the Honda Accord model line on which it's based; now for 2013 (as previewed by this concept) Honda has worked to further separate it--and, perhaps, make it more of a crossover, less of a hatchback/fastback passenger car. New contrasting door moldings, styled sill plates, and new wheels give it a somewhat more rugged look

Fundamentally, the packaging appears to carry over--although its interior appointments will be substantially different (and not shown at New York). Engines will considerably more fuel-efficient, and the V-6 model will get a new six-speed automatic.

Safety equipment gets a boost, too, with the introduction of a lane-departure system, forward collision warning, a rearview backup camera, and infotainment systems have been updated with USB and Bluetooth included in all models, plus an available Pandora radio interface, text-to-speech functions, and a new hard-drive nav system.

Let us know what you think. Do you like the Crosstour's slightly more 'butch' appearance?

  1. Depressing. Just bring back the civic hatchback already

  2. This auto show how Honda has lost its way.
    The March 2012 Sales are Down because there are better products for the consumers than what Honda has to offer.
    Still selling 5 speeds trannys, Terrible road NOISE, no DI fuel systems like most auto makers have today. Honda has spent too much time on Robots and their auto divisions suffered.

  3. It still has that odd look about it. I wouldn't bother checking it out when there are too many beautiful crossovers to choose from.

  4. Hey, I love this vehicle. I wish it will comes with integrated built in turning signals. More power will be appreciated, Blind spot monitor is a must along with remote trunk opening. The trunk is heavy to open. The 2013 Toyota Venza offers it. Take it from some who own a Crosstour. I expect that the 8 inches back up camara will be the same as 2013 Acura RDX. In which when you back up the vehicle a panoramic camara is deployed. Actually you don't need to look backwards , just look at the 8 inch monitor.
