Accord Crosstour in the Market

There are some cars that don't add up at first — but a certain brand of likability emerges, defying plenty of other reasons to win you over. Case in point: The Infiniti EX35 we tested last month.

The Accord Crosstour is not one of those cars. Styling aside — because if you've read this far, it clearly isn't an issue — the pieces just don't fall into place. It's not particularly grin-inducing to drive or sit in. I question the cargo area's Home Depot capacities. It's expensive. That elusive sense of likability? I'm still waiting for it.

Honda has a strong contender in the Accord sedan, and the Crosstour may still work for Accord faithful who want more cargo room and can't bear to consider anything else. For the premium Honda charges, though, I have a tough time justifying its draw versus all the other wagon-things you could get.
