2012 Honda Crosstour Overview
For added space and flexibility, the 2012 Honda Crosstour wagon is a great choice for those looking to at a little utility to everyday driving.
Formerly the ‘Accord’ Crosstour, Honda decided to trim the name to only ‘Crosstour’ for 2012.

A new 192-horspower, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder generates 162 pounds-feet of torque is mated to the same five-speed automatic. Choose between front- or all-wheel drive for added traction and handling. Considering its power output, the Crosstour receives generous fuel efficiency of 18-21 mpg in the city and 25-29 mpg on the highway.
Even though it’s based on the Accord, the Crosstour has a much larger grille, giving the headlights a streamlined and even look. The Crosstour is available in EX and EX-L trims, and comes with 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, fog lamps, sunroof, dual tailpipes and red tail lamps as standard equipment, while 18-inch wheels are optional.
