Traded my Volvo XC 70 for the Crosstour and never looked back. I researched AWD wagons and crossovers and this was the clear winner. The crosstour is superior to the Volvo (and numerous luxury SUVS) in comfort, reliability, ease of maintenance and great looks. Despite the absence of a turbo, there is plenty of power and responsiveness. Plenty of cargo space - my German shepherd fits in the car very nicely. The interior envelops you and is extremely quiet. This is the car I have been waiting a long time for and finally found.
comfortable seats w/ excellent lumbar support, AWD, uses regular fuel, rides smoothly and handles beautifully - agile and responsive, love the hidden storage compartments in back
Definitely a struggle with rear visibility - a GPS screen with rear vision should be required. I am surprised it passed US safety standards
Performance, comfort, practical...all wrapped nicely in one car. I put on 45,000 miles a year. My recent trip of 2,300 miles ended with NO driving fatigue. HWY avg was 26 on this trip. It was like being in a perfectly configured cockpit. The entertainment options were endless, XM radio, iPod, CDs with books on tape. I actually look forward to trips now. My golden retriever loves being in the back. She slept for 5 hours while we drove. She used to get sick in my element and my wife's mini cooper S but this ride is so smooth, she no longer gets car sick. The interior is as luxurious as an Acura, even more so than the TL. Honda nailed this one! It is perfect!
Hands free bluetooth for the iphone. Side mirrors that slant down when backing up to assist with parking, sun roof, comfy seats, leg room, stereo system and that throaty dual exhaust sound when you Punch it to accelerate! The performance is pure heaven!
Trip computer, should already have it. Rear blind spots BUT I do not think there is a reasonable fix without a body design change AND DON'T DO THAT.
I assume the 7.5 rating the editor gives this terrific car has to do with it's lack of room compared to other SUVs. Well they don't get it. What they should be saying is that the Crosstour has a great deal of room compared to other cars. This has all the attributes of an excellent car and the benefits of an SUV. I also drive a Infinity G35X and the Crosstour although may not be quite as peppy, it is in definitely in the same class.
Roomy back for passengers. When seats are down, very roomy for hauling. I love the look of the car. Very decent stereo.
Standard back-up camera. Blind-spot sensor on the mirror.
Best car I ever owned, beautiful styling, fun to drive, interior room super, rear seats, actual higher then then front seats. Tight steering, good handling, fast, just get on it, shifts through gears like a dream, love the rear space, put an living room club chair inside and closed the hatch, many stooge compartment, sunglass holder, cell phone, coin holder, deep cup holders, cd, and extra bottle holder in doors, get many compliments on looks and color. Honda is a very well built car, star war electronics, separate climate control, super radio, sound system, controls on steering wheel, also bluethooth, hands free, safety, 10 air bags, Honda engine, 3,4, 6 cyl. Great gas mileage, over 30 mpg.
Whole car is fun to drive, safe, music system is incredible, 350 Watts, adjustable everything, brass, subwoofer etc. Can be driven like a stick, for those drivers who know how to drive! Automatic garage door opener, security sys. Etc. At touch of a button, dream car.
Automatic hatch opening, Honda has senors for rear backing for safety, if you can't afford nav, equipment,
