Honda Crosstour Unveiled

honda_crosstour_220The all-new 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour is changing the way we think about driving. Honda has evolved the concept of a crossover to come up with the Crosstour, the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV). This sleek CUV integrates sporty performance with an aerodynamic shape and brings in elements of versatility, functionality and personality to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

The Crosstour is revolutionizing the crossover…

Because it is built with the driver in mind. By taking one of America’s favorite vehicles, the Honda Accord, and adapting it to perform in a crossover manner, Honda has brought you the Crosstour. The benefits are a higher driving stance, more cargo space and enhanced performance and handling.

The Accord Crosstour accomplishes a lot in one vehicle, like bringing together the comfort of a sedan, the style of a crossover and maximizing the efficiency of bringing the two together. Not only are features like increased ride height, all-weather driving capabilities and a more powerful engine part of this vehicle, but you will also find major upgrades in the styling.


Honda has taken its familiar lines and then added a “wow” factor to all of it. They gave the Crosstour a bolder front grille complemented by a durable lower-body appearance, wedge-shaped pillars and an aggressive stance. The roofline has a flowing appearance and narrows smoothly into the rear of this Honda, which conceals a unique cargo area that is sure to be a favorite aspect of this vehicle for many drivers. This cargo area adapts so to your needs, allowing you to store large objects that exceed the capacity of a sedan.

The all-new 2010 Honda Crosstour is headed for Honda Cars of Katy this fall; so don’t miss your chance. Make sure you stop in and ask when you can add the Crosstour to your driving lineup.
