2017 Honda Crosstour Release Date, Review and Specs

2017 Honda Crosstour Review

While the 2017 Honda Crosstour is a strong contender in the midsize sedan segment thanks to its spacious interior accommodation, available all-wheel drive, hush cabin, and carlike dynamics, it trails its competition in terms of cargo space. Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017, at least according to recent news.

Unlike in the past when you could buy Honda wagons and hatchbacks, Honda started offering Crosstour hatchback from the 2010 model year. Within its price range, the model under review continues to be an oddball among the more seasoned wagon and SUV choices.

The Crosstour offers plenty of interior room and adds an additional ten cubic feet of space relative to the Accord sedan. Accessing the cargo area is relatively simple thanks to the user-friendly hatchback design. The exterior visibility is better.

In terms of performance, the new 2017 Honda Crosstour returns for 2017 with the outgoing model’s 2.4L four-cylinder base engine that churns out a decent 192 horsepower and 162 pounds-feet of torque. In addition to the laudable output, people living in Snowbelt regions will particularly appreciate its all-wheel drive feature that adds extra traction in mundane conditions. The Accord, in stark contrast, lacks the AWD.

Another notable feature the Crosstour impresses with is its truly carlike handling feature compared to other compact or midsize crossover SUVs. If you’re planning to buy the 2017 Honda Crosstour, there are some idiosyncrasies we think you should know before penning down the purchased agreement. The new Crosstour lacks the newer sedan refinements that come with the latest generation Accord, as it still based on the previous platform.

The cargo capacity is limited relative to what the competition offers. If you’re looking for a vehicle that balances fuel economy, handling and cargo and interior accommodations, you may probably want to check what the Nissan Murano, and the 2017 Honda CR-V.

Another impressive standout in the segment is the Toyota Venza. It manages to walk the line between wagon and sedan features, though with more faux success.
