Crosstour model didn’t make any significant impact at the beginning. The number of sales was decent back in 2009. However, this crossover was killed a couple of years ago. Now, the 2020 Honda Crosstour is making a comeback.
This time, Honda will deliver more luxurious variant that surely won’t fail. Its predecessor was outdated, the layout was awful, design as well. New Crosstour will offer an upscale look with the premium interior. Also, the 2020 Crosstour will be one very practical and versatile crossover.
2020 Honda Crosstour Exterior Design
For the start, the 2020 Honda Crosstour will be based on the Honda Accord. The two will share almost the same front fascia. Honda will implement the same design language so this crossover will be similar to the sedan model. On the other hand, Crosstour will arrive with slightly larger exterior features and some unique stuff.
Crosstour will look similar to its predecessor, at least we can say that for the shape and size of the vehicle. Moreover, wheelbase will be exactly the same as before. The rear end will be unique as the Crosstour will offer all-new taillights. Of course, this crossover will look sportier than the Accord sedan and it will more aggressive.
Interior Details and Features
New 2020 Honda Crosstour will get a more sophisticated interior design. Comfort will be much better now and the cabin will be more practical. Also, the new interior layout will provide more legroom from the inside. That can be said for the cargo area as well.
Some parts of the interior will be similar to the Accord model, especially the dashboard. New Crosstour will benefit from more premium materials and much better design. The modern cabin will sport some beautiful cues such as the shape of the vents and controls. Cargo area is rated at 25.7 cubic feet. Folding the rear seats flat opens up 51.3 cubic feet.
Two Engine Choices
The forthcoming 2020 Honda Crosstour comes with the same engine lineup as its predecessor. This crossover offers two engine options and a hybrid variant is still a speculation. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is producing 192 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a 5-speed automatic transmission and fuel economy is rated at 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
Optional and larger 3.5-liter V6 returns 280 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. A smoother 6-speed automatic transmission is in the offer. Fuel economy is slightly lower, 20 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Also, the optional V6 comes with both front and all-wheel-drive configurations. AWD model delivers slightly lower mileage, but nothing significant.
2020 Honda Crosstour Price and Release Date
This crossover will start at around $30,000. Of course, upper trims or optional V6 engine will cost you significantly more than the price of the base model. The 2020 Honda Crosstour will arrive later in 2019, probably around October.
