Safety, Features & Pricing

The Crosstour has yet to be crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety; its body style is different enough that the Accord sedan's ratings do not apply. Standard features on the Crosstour include six airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.

The $29,670 Crosstour EX comes well-equipped, with dual-zone automatic climate control, power front seats, a moonroof and a CD stereo with an MP3 jack. I'm flummoxed why $30,000 doesn't get you a USB input for full iPod/MP3 connectivity — a feature fast becoming standard across cars of all stripes, including the Venza. In the Crosstour, USB connectivity requires stepping up to the $32,570 EX-L, which also adds heated leather seats, an upgraded stereo and larger wheels. A navigation system with a backup camera runs $2,200, while all-wheel drive runs $1,450. Both are available only on the EX-L, but you don't need one to get the other.

Check all the factory options, and the Crosstour runs about $36,000.
