It seems that crossovers have evolved to the point of irrelevance; offering the worst of all worlds in terms of style, utility and performance. What makes this one different?

I personally think it's just Honda getting into this market late but better late than never.

well, I think they needed to come out with something better than the CR-V but not as big as the Odyssey.

btw, as much as I love Honda, the price is surprisingly high.:s
Have they released the price? What am I looking at for cost? I think the crossover vehicles are great. I have a Forester now and it is the best for camping, hunting, fishing etc... as I don't spend as much on fuel as somebody with a full size SUV or truck. The wife can park it too.

The honda dealership I went to back in September said they will go in the mid 30's. He didn't have exact pricing.

I like it but the pricing needs to come down after the rush is up. If you look at Honda’s lineup, you can see that there’s a move away from traditional sedan designs and into this Prius, Insight big rump back end.

They already said the next civic will actually get smaller. I respect that. they’re sticking to a plan and honda have never been called weak, they’ve just fallen into the classic auto trap of relying too much on brand loyalty and reputation. Hyundai and Kia have better designs, prices and programs and quality is not an issue anymore. All cars will last a min of 5 years or 160000 kms. the game is now about designing things a buyer can’t cross shop. This accord does that and I think it'll sell well.

I have to admit from the rear 3/4 view, I like the looks of this car. But from the front, it’s a face only a mother could love – I think the grille/headlight combo were a 1st draft of the one Ford penned for the new Taurus (wow, I’m glad Ford had the good sense to toss that sketch in the trash). I’m not surprised by this car’s homeliness – one only need to look at any new Honda/Acura from the last 3 years to realize that Honda’s stylists are in all likelihood members of the CNIB. They even managed to screw up the Civic with it’s mid-cycle freshening – what was a beautiful car is now at best only average-looking.
I’m sure the Crosstour is great mechanically – I just wouldn’t be caught dead in it.

Wow,Seem’s like everyone’s hating on the Honda’s looks. I personally am more put off by all the button’s on the dash (yes i know they’re shared with the accord), but considering if you own this car, you’ll probably spend 10 times as much time inside it as outside it, I personally would go for a more simplistic interior.
Also, I too would definitely like to see a normal “station-wagon”, there I said it!, diesel, manual like the acura tsx tourer in the UK. Lol, don’t know what the big deal is, tourer/crossover utility vehicle/sports activity vehicle, just call it a wagon, and build it like a wagon (lower, more fuel efficient, but same cargo capacity). Because lets me honest, when was the last time someone bought a bmw x6/chrysler pacifica/dodge journey, etc. for off-roading?

I will be purchasing one very soon. I actually own aRidgeline, but my wife is extremely enthusiastic about the Crosstour. I think for us functionality is the name of the game.

Exactly. They are definitely not offroad vehicles, but whether we like it or not, a couple of demographics will be all over this car. I am a member of one of them. I have small kids and this is perfect for all the needs of a dad. Very versatile IMO, and you can go over curbs with it too. I have always owned lowered Hondas, and this one is gonna stay up.
