2010 Honda Crosstour: The Prius Rear Window
July 19, 2010
Our long-term 2010 Honda Crosstour's bulbous and tall rear-deck hatchback styling creates a rear window that is short in height if it were projected on a vertical plane.
We've driven a BMW X6 with a similar styling setup and looking out the rear-window on that thing gives the impression of one of those gun ports on an armored car -- it's a slit.
Honda rectifies this with a Prius-like lower rear window (although Dan Edmunds says the Crosstour's grandmama the CRX had it first).
It greatly improves rear visibility and doesn't make you rely on the optional back-up camera.
