2010 Honda Crosstour: More Frequent Sightings
November 10, 2010
I used to never see the homely Honda Crosstour on the road. Now I see them nearly every day, mostly in the South Bay where my gym is located (and where nobody on our staff lives). Anyway, as I previously mentioned, you see pretty much every vehicle in SoCal. But I've seen maybe only one example of the Crosstour's prettier (and more expensive) sister, the Acura ZDX.
Here are the sales numbers that verify that: Jan-Oct 2010 for Crosstour = 23,700, while ZDX = 2850 (pitiful). For perspective, the big players in that segment, Murano and Venza, sold 44,800 and 40,000 in the same period, respectively.
I've never driven the better-looking ZDX, but the Crosstour is perfectly fine, except for the aesthetics. Perhaps that old adage is true: looks ain't everything.
