As promised, Honda has unveiled the Honda Crosstour Concept at a catered media reception at the 2012 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) in hopes of reviving a vehicle that has had less than stellar performance on the market. This new concept follows the original Accord Crosstour that was launched back in 2010 and the renamed Honda Crosstour in 2012 (when it dropped the Accord nomenclature). The Honda Crosstour Concept is our first taste as to what we can expect for the 2013 model of this struggling crossover.
The list of changes for the new Honda Crosstour Concept include exterior and interior upgrades, a new 6-speed automatic transmission for the V6 versions, and safety upgrades for both four-cylinder and V6 versions.
"Fueled by a combination of versatility, luxury, and efficiency, owners have demonstrated remarkable devotion to the Honda Crosstour ," said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda. "The 2013 Crosstour Concept shows how Honda will strengthen the styling and add even more content to one of the most efficient offerings in the class."
