2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Plood...Yes or No?
June 07, 2010
Our Crosstour has these trim inserts throughout its interior. Am I the only one who thinks the addition of (presumably) fake wood throughout an otherwise plastic and leather interior is out of place? It's not even that the stuff looks that bad on its own. But it certainly feels like a feeble attempt at nostalgia by paying homage to a time when wood was actually a practical material to use inside a car. Today, however, wood color and grain in a sea of grey just doesn't make sense to me.
Does it to you?
