Looks like Honda just got an illigitimate child... Check out the picture. That my friends is blatant badge engineering.

From what I've read the 2013 Crosstour will not be available with the new Accord direct injected 4-cylinder engine with the CVT transmission. That engine/transmision gets significantly better mileage and performance than the old engine and I don't understand why they won't offer it on the new Crosstour. Perhaps is just a shortage of the new engine, but it seems a serious deficiency for this new model, particularly considering the continuing upward price of gasoline.

When will they be hitting the dealer showrooms?

its probably due to the size & weight of the CT. I know my wife loves her's, but she also has the V6.

Wondering if anyone can give me their opinion on this vehicle. I have a Toyota Highlander that I really love, but it is a 2008 when they changed to the bigger size. I did not like the Rav4, so I bought the Highlander. I love my Highlander, but would really like to have something smaller.
Like my Highlander, I need 4 wheel drive, and I happened to look at this Crosstour while out on a Sunday drive. I really love the looks of this, and it seems from the reviews that it is great for quiet, smooth rides and luxury, but then still has the 4 wheel drive that I need. I am 6'2, and around 220 , so I need to fit well with legs and head room.......I have looked at the CRV, but I really don't like it's looks as well, and I hear it doesn't ride very smooth. I am spoiled with the quiet, smooth ride of the Highlander, so that is important to me......I would appreciate your opinions....I have always been a Toyota guy, never had a Honda, but I know people that love them.....Thanks

It rides on the Pilots frame. It is longer than the Pilot and about the same width. My wife loves hers but both of us comment about the massive blind spots. Have you looked at the Subaru Impreza Sport Wagon or the new XV Crosstrek. I was looking at them both as replacements for my '06 Pilot. I myself am 6'3" 266# and fit them both nicely. The only other thing about the Crosstour that hurts it... it's mileage is horrible. My wife gets averaged 18 around town and I've calculated it as high as 24 on the highway, so this is on par with the Pilot.

Thank you for writing.......I have looked at the Subaru's, but I don't think they are as quiet or smooth as the Honda would be....as far as the gas mileage, I only get that with the Highlander......I haven't driven any of them, so I should try them all, but I just like the looks of the Honda , and peoples reviews about the quiet and smooth ride make me lean that way if I were to change.

Wow....just compared some specs...the Highlander is shorter than the Crosstour.....amazing....about the same as far as leg and head room etc.
Other than the Gas mileage, would you say it is probably the best ride that you guys tried ?

I just purchased a 2012 Crosstour and am very happy with size and gas mileage, mostly due to the I4. You are correct, the styling is unique and is similar to the Acura ZDX for $20k less. I did not need AWD, since I have a SUV also.
I traded a 2008 Accord Coupe V6, the Crosstour has a much better ride and much more room. I was concerned that it would be underpowered but that has not been an issue for me.
