2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Is 13 years long enough?
September 08, 2010
1997 was the last year you could have bought an Accord Wagon here in the states (that's a '96 pictured above). Now that it's called a Crosstour, do you still think it's a wagon or has shaving the square bit off the roof magically transformed it into something more like an SUV? Even with the addition of all-wheel drive and more ground clearance, I still consider the Crosstour a wagon.
Funny thing, when I looked up what the luggage and cargo capacity differences might be, there wasn't much difference:
- 1996 Accord Wagon: Luggage = 25.7 cu-ft, maximum cargo = 63.0 cu-ft
- 2010 Accord Crosstour: Luggage = 25.7 cu-ft; maximum cargo = 51.0 cu-ft
