2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Fast Enough for Family Duty

August 23, 2010


At just over two tons, the Accord Crosstour is no lightweight. Thankfully, Honda saw fit to install its healthy 3.5-liter V6 as standard equipment. With 271-horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque, it makes the Crosstour feel sufficiently motivated for average driving duties.

I was all over town this weekend. In the city, on the highway, in traffic, on wide open roads. Can't say that I ever really thought the Crosstour felt underpowered or sluggish. Now, keep in mind, my expectations were low. I was expecting something quite lethargic, but the Honda felt reasonably chipper when I laid into the gas. Quiet too.

Sounds a bit like faint praise, but this is about as family oriented as cars get these days. Can't imagine a customer feeling disappointed with its powerplant, although they might not appreciate the mileage. It's averaging about 20mpg so far.

Oh, and check out that strut tower brace. Sporty.
