The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour is motivated by the same 3.5-liter V6 found in the Accord sedan; it sends its 271 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque through a five-speed automatic transmission. That is the sole engine available, though buyers do have a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. Fitted with up-sized brakes compared to an Accord sedan, The Crosstour came to a halt from 60 mph in 131 feet at the track, an impressive distance for a vehicle this size.
The Accord Crosstour’s innovative shifting feature knows when you’re taking a curve, and will hold your gear so you can accelerate through the turn without an unwanted up-shift or downshift. The gearbox features an automatic downshift rev-matching feature, the first in a Honda-brand vehicle.
For the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour will be offered only in up-level EX and EX-L trims. The Crosstour minus the road noise and adds some major cargo capacity.
To help keep you on course and away from danger, Vehicle Stability Assist helps sense oversteer or understeer in an emergency situation, and then adjusts brake pressure at each wheel and reduces engine power to help restore driver control.
Standard 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), help you maintain control during hard braking. Properly inflated tires are crucial for safe operation, so the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) alerts the driver when a tire’s pressure reaches a significantly low level.
With the tilt-telescopic steering wheel and multi-adjustable power seat, getting comfortable behind the wheel is easy. The Crosstour has its quieter cabin that is meant to more closely match the vehicle’s luxury GT crossover mission.
To help you out Honda has fitted a glass window below the lift gate, while on the EX-L with navigation you get a back-up camera with guidance lines. The latter is a godsend, allowing you to easily place the vehicle between parking lines and back up to other parallel parked cars without worry about touching bumpers.
If you’ve been inside an Accord, then the Crosstour’s cabin will be immediately familiar, as the fit and finish is excellent while the instrument panel, center stack and door panels are virtually identical.
