Vehicle Summary

The 2014 Honda Crosstour is a hybrid -- but not in the way we usually mean when we speak of hybrids -- that blends elements of a crossover with the appearance and drive character of a car. It's one of the lesser-known Honda models, overshadowed by the Civic, the Accord, and the Pilot. The 2014 Honda Crosstour offers a range of engine choices and interior options, and it was refreshed for the 2013 model year. Marketed at empty nesters and young families in search of flexible transportation, the Crosstour is a bit of a curiosity in that it looks a bit like it can't decide whether it's a car or a crossover.

Overview

The 2014 Honda Crosstour comes with a choice of two engines: a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 192 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque and a 3.5-liter V-6 that pushes out 278 hp and 252 lb-ft. The four-cylinder is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, and the V-6 is mated to a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters. The Crosstour is available with front- or all-wheel drive. Honda offers a range of electronic options, including navigation, blind-spot detection, lane-departure warning, push-button start, and forward-collision alert. The vehicle can get up to 22 mpg in city driving and 31 mpg on the highway.

The 2013 refresh gave the Crosstour more of a traditional crossover appearance, using chrome and other accents to square off the stance. It now sports new wheels, enlarged foglamps, and blacked-out trim. Inside, the rear headrests were reshaped to improve visibility, a backup camera was added as standard equipment, and the rearview mirror was enlarged. The five-seat crossover shares significant styling cues with the Accord and was formerly known as the Accord Crosstour.

In a recent test drive we were impressed with the 2014 Honda Crosstour, which feels much like the Accord on which it's based. Not surprisingly, it drives better than the Pilot, Honda's more traditional crossover. The Crosstour's steering is natural and nicely weighted, the high seating position makes it relatively easy to see out, and it's easy to put the seats up and down -- all virtues we would expect from Honda.
