When Honda originally introduced the Accord Crosstour, it was panned for its questionable styling and high price tag. Unalarmed by the disappointing sales, Honda has unveiled the 2013 Crossover concept which can best be described as aggressive déjà vu.
Designed to preview the next-generation model, the concept features familiar styling with a massive grille, a sporty front bumper and plastic body cladding. Other highlights include a bulging hood, a revised tailgate and 19-inch alloy wheels.
When the production model is launched this fall, it will be offered with two different engines: a 192 hp (143 kW / 195 PS) 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a "re-engineered and more powerful" 3.5-liter V6.
The Crosstour will also be available with a Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system, a Forward Collision Warning system and a LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system. Additionally, customers can buy a navigation system, a Pandora internet radio interface and an SMS text-to-speech function.
