Since the Honda manufacturer hasn’t introduced a newer version of the Crosstour model since 2015, we have heard some news that it might happen during next year. So, the all-new 2019 Honda Crosstour is expected to bring various upgrades in every segment of the vehicle. This means that it should hit the market with more modern exterior styling, upgraded tech features and materials and perhaps some changes under its hood.
Engines and performances of the 2019 Honda Crosstour
The upcoming 2019 Honda Crosstour will be available with two engines like its forerunner. However, we have heard some rumors about the hybrid version of this model, but there is still no any official information or other details. So, the one option will include a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder unit. This engine will have the output of 192 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. In the current version, this engine is connected to a five-speed automatic transmission. As for the fuel efficiency, it is rated at 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
Furthermore, the second is a stronger 3.5-liter V-6 unit which is able to develop 278 hp and 252 pound-feet of torque. This unit will be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. As well, it will be offered with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive layouts. Connected to front-wheel drive, it gets 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The AWD model is estimated to be 19/29 mpg in the city/highway.
Design of exterior and interior
When it comes to exterior design, the Crosstour is based on the Honda Accord design, but it mixes a sedan, wagon, and SUV-like design. Naturally, since it belongs to an SUV segment, the Crosstour rides higher than the Accord model. The newest 2019 Honda Crosstour is expected to be revised in order to look more contemporary and attractive. And this time we expect some changes of the front fascia including a slightly modified grille and headlamps. The bumpers will be revised too which will give it sportier look. Moreover, we might see new taillights on the rear end of the vehicle.
Moving inside the cabin of the 2019 Honda Crosstour, we assume that this time it will get upgraded and more quality materials. The standard two-row seating configuration will remain unchanged. As for the cargo, the Crosstour comes with 25.7 cubic feet behind the second row. However, with rear seats folded flat, it offers the room of 51.3 cubes.
The standard equipment of the 2019 Honda Crosstour will include USB, Bluetooth, air conditioning, a power moonroof, an audio system with seven speakers, 17-inch alloys, six airbags, active headrest, cruise control etc. The higher trim levels will add dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, audio system with Pandora internet radio, lane-departure warning, leather upholstery, and so on.
Release date and price
The newest 2019 Honda Crosstour might arrive sometime during next year. There is still no information about its price. But it could get a bit higher compared to the current mode which begins at $28,500.
