Introduced as the Accord Crosstour, the name was changed to just Crosstour in 2012.
It is a four-door hatchback, based on the Accord sedan, with a raised ride height and either front or all-wheel drive.
It combines the appearance and versatility of a wagon or hatchback without looking like an SUV.
The Crosstour has a roomy interior with a wider cabin than the Accord, and benefits from the added versatility of the rear hatch - but visibility is compromised.
Thankfully a rear camera became standard with the 2012 update, which also simplified the model lineup.
The smooth and refined 3.5 liter V6 returned 21 mpg overall in our tests.
A four-cylinder engine is standard on front-wheel-drive versions.
The ride is supple and composed, but the handling becomes SUV-like as it approaches its limits.
Starting in 2013, top-trim EX-L V6 AWD versions have standard forward collision warning.
