New 2021 Honda Crosstour is coming back, this time with significant upgrades. Crosstour is a sporty-looking crossover with a wagon-like appearance. The first generations weren’t successful at all, and its production ended in 2015. However, the Japanese manufacturer is willing to turn things around and to deliver next-gen Crosstour.
The new model will hit the markets with a new design, and we hope Honda won’t make the same mistakes again. The Crosstour crossover will offer good versatility and a high level of comfort. There will be room for five occupants, and we hope to see at least two engine options. The sales will begin in the last quarter of the year, but crossover’s price is not available yet.
2021 Crosstour Redesign
Interestingly, but 2021 Honda Crosstour won’t depart from its first-generation. Some things are still available, so Crosstour will stick to its roots. Design is recognizable, and it is Honda’s latest design language. Thanks to that, we can’t call this crossover unique. Most of the styling cues are taken from the Accord sedan. Two models are sharing similar mechanics as well.
Whatsoever, some exterior features are very similar, and even the exterior color palette is almost the same. The Crosstour will feature a wagon-like appearance with a sloping roofline and a simple side profile. Mechanically, new suspension is in the offer, and Crosstour will offer more ground clearance than its previous generation. Still, we don’t like black plastics, and bumpers could be more upright.
Accord-Based Interior Design
We don’t expect many surprises inside the cabin. The 2021 Honda Crosstour will feature the interior that is identical to Accord sedan. That includes a five-seat layout, similar interior design, and the same high-tech amenities. Whatsoever, the arriving crossover won’t be more premium than its sedan sibling. On the other hand, its wagon-like appearance will provide more interior room.
Furthermore, Crosstour will be more practical, and it will offer a generous cargo area. A higher driving position is a must, and we expect from Honda to deliver it. A 7-inch touchscreen is standard, and Crosstour offers more than a solid list of standard features.
This is an interesting category. No one knows which engine will power the new 2021 Honda Crosstour. You can find plenty of rumors on the internet, and all of them are possible to happen. For example, a 1.5-liter turbo-four engine will be standard. It will deliver 192 horses, while upper trim levels will offer 2.0-liter turbo-four with 252 hp. Moreover, standard engine choice comes with a CVT transmission.
As for the optional powertrain, rumors are predicting an eight-speed automatic gearbox. A hybrid powertrain is speculated as well. According to the newest stories, Crosstour Hybrid will produce 212 horsepower, and it will be rated at over 40 mpg combined. Other reports are also mentioning a 2.4-liter gasoline, and even a 3.5-liter V6 is reportedly in the mix.
2021 Honda Crosstour Price and Release Date
The price of the all-new 2021 Honda Crosstour will start slightly below $30,000. The number of trim levels is not available, but the range-topping trim won’t cost above $45,000. The sales will start by the end of 2020, and the Crosstour model will rival Subaru Outback and brand-new Toyota Venza.
