The typical auto industry reviews I have read of the Crosstour simply do not get it.
It does not fit neatly into their ideas of a sedan, so they lump it in with SUVs and wagons, and the say it is lacking because it has less cargo capacity than square SUV designs.
I spent 22 yrs driving mini-vans and full size SUVs. My kids are grown, and I could shop for what I wanted.
I did NOT want the SUV, or just a smaller version of it (CR-V; RAV-4; Mazda 7 or 9; Ford Edge, etc etc.)
I wanted a capable, comfortable, sporty, sharp looking mid size sedan but with the versatility of a hatch back so that when needed, I could open it up, flip down the seat backs and have the space.
I got it!
Comfortable seats, especially the drivers seat and controls; very spacious rear seats; hatchback; sleek styling; handling;
View our the rear (rear view camera, which I have , is an absolute must)
