Is the Crosstour's back seat actually usable, or did they make it cramped or hard to get into as well? With a real back seat, it might be a useful family car.

After driving one for a bit, would you honestly say this is a better car than an Accord or CRV?

For some reason I really like these in concept and looks but if I'm going to settle for a semi appliance it should get better mileage than my mustang

Don’t confuse this with the Acura ZDX. Honda insists that the Accord Crosstour and ZDX aren’t mechanically related.

This means the Honda family has two distinct undefinables in its product stable. Instead of making an Accord wagon—Americans have avoided station wagons for decades—they designed this hatchback for sedan shoppers wanting a bit more utility.

With an MSRP of nearly $35,000, the Crosstour EX-L commands a $3000 premium over a similarly equipped Accord sedan. The base Accord’s four-cylinder engine isn't available. Neither is a manual transmission. That means all Crosstour buyers get the Accord V6’s 271-horsepower engine driving the front wheels through a five-speed automatic.

Four-wheel drive is only available as a $1500 premium on the top-spec EX-L trim, but its highway fuel economy score only takes a 1 mpg hit. Our tester was a front-wheel-drive EX-L, which is rated at 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
