2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Steering Does Make a Difference

July 30, 2010


I took our Accord Crosstour home last night after spending the past couple weeks driving our Hyundai Sonata. It was an interesting switch from a steering feel perspective. The more I drove the Sonata the more I got annoyed at its over-boosted and numb steering. It's perhaps the aspect I dislike most about the car, actually.

The Crosstour's rack is hardly a paradigm of precision, but in contrast it does feel more natural than the Sonata's, with less boost at low speeds and a bit more feel as to what the front wheels are actually doing. Though it might seem like a petty issue, I'd argue that steering feel does indeed make a difference from an ownership standpoint, even with cars as workaday as the Sonata and the Crosstour.
