I'm glad I bought my Glacier blue in June, then. I want to check out the new red. I've still never seen a Tango Red Crosstour but have seen it onThe 2012 CT is on the Honda website. Besides eliminating Glacier Blue and Tango Red and adding Basque Red, there don't seem to be any changes. Or am I missing something? I guess the rumors of a 4-cylinder weren't true.
I definately noticed the standard back-up camera with the video located on the rear-view mirror and I noticed that USB audio interface, and bluethooth are also standard acording to the spec sheets on the webpage ... but I thought that the HFL and USB audio interface had always been standard since 2010.The now "Crosstour" now has STANDARD, USB audio interface, bluetooth, backup camera located in the rearview mirror, auto on/off headlights AND ... like it or hate it , "V6" badging now located on the lower right tailgate. Their is also a bump in city gas mileage for you 4WD folks out there from 17 to 18 mpg city.
Well, they obviously read the customer reviews. The poor rear visibility and lack of a backup camera in my EX-L are my only complaints. Just when I thought I had gotten used to it and that it wasn't so bad, I backed out of the garage and into my wife's car.
The only significant difference between the EX and the non-nav, non-4WD EX-L was the leather. And, you are right, Honda was charging a lot for leather.I was trying to figure out the changes myself. I have the EXL- with Navi (backup camera which is GREAT!). From what I see is that Honda added a lot of features to the EX, that the EXL package came with. It kind of pisses me off since WE EXL- Navi owners paid much more money for our vehicle than the EX. I guess now what makes the EXL Model different then the EX is it comes with leather seats, remote side marker mirrors that move, and 4WD? So I guess if we would have waited for the 2012 we wouldn't had to pay 6,000 extra for some of the features that now the low model comes with?
Well I'm still happy with my EX-L Navi model. I have not had lots of issues with my car like I see on here....I still like to hear what's going on with Honda and there mistakes.
LOL...Easy solution: just bought my wife a new car with limited rear vis / no nav. Had a local stereo shop change out the rearview with an aftermarket mirror / monitor, and camera above the license plate. works great, ran me around $600. (less than my deductible if she backed into anything...
