2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Practical But Homely
March 29, 2010
Over on the Edmunds CarPool blog, we pitted the Honda Accord Crosstour against a Nissan Murano today for our weekly Face-Off poll. Based on the commentary so far (and you're welcome to add to it), the Crosstour is getting schooled. Too stylistically challenged and not practical enough, say the people.
For my part, I've been driving our long-termer for more than a week now. From a daily-use standpoint, the Crosstour has been useful; the wide-opening hatchback is nice, as is the rubberized trunk liner. But realistically, I could have managed just fine so far with a regular Accord sedan. As for the Crosstour's styling, I can't say it's grown on me. It looks fine from certain angles, but other times I'll catch a glance and think, "That's one homely looking Honda."
