2010 Honda Accord Crosstour review

The Honda Accord Crosstour, a hatchback offshoot of the Accord sedan that early web audiences suggest was struck — bludgeoned, really — by the ugly stick, delivers an Accord-like experience through and through. Fans of the sedan who need some extra cargo room might want to put it on their shortlist.

The masses may balk over the Crosstour's looks, but I suspect the disdain will subside over time. I have bigger concerns: namely, that Honda makes the car out to be some sort of marriage between luxury and versatility. On each, it comes up short.

Honda positions the Crosstour up-market of the Accord sedan; the current-generation sedan was last redesigned for the 2008 model year. Its V-6 engine is standard in the Crosstour, as is a five-speed automatic transmission. Trim levels include the well-equipped EX and gussied-up EX-L. All-wheel drive, unavailable on the sedan, is optional on the Crosstour EX-L. I tested both the EX and EX-L.
