Four-cylinder 2012 Honda Crosstour priced from $27,655

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 30, 2012

Honda’s dealerships throughout the U.S. have debuted the new four-cylinder, two-wheel-drive Honda Crosstour. The well-equipped Crosstour EX has a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $27,655 while the luxurious Crosstour EX-L Navi is priced at $32,805, including a destination and handling charge of $8101 for each vehicle. The four-cylinder Crosstour models are included in the current 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 Crosstour models.

Aside from offering added value to the Crosstour line, the new four-cylinder model offers an EPA-estimated fuel economy that raises 3 mpg in the city and 2 mpg on the highway when compared to V-6-equipped models. John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., said that the new four-cylinder Crosstour provides a sleek design, unrivaled passenger comfort and ingenious functionality with the pricing and fuel economy of a four-cylinder.

Mendel said that the Crosstour should be on each CUV buyer's shopping list with four-cylinder and V-6 options and a long list of standard features. The latest Crosstour is equipped with a 2.4-liter i-VTEC inline four-cylinder engine that delivers 192hp.

It is offered in two trim levels, including the Crosstour EX and leather-upholstered Crosstour EX-L. A Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System3 is offered on the Crosstour EX-L. The four-cylinder Crosstour has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway, significantly higher than the 271hp 2WD V-6 model's EPA estimated 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.

Combining SUV qualities with sporty efficiency, the 2012 Honda Crosstour delivers maximised space, quality, and the durability and versatility to be everything to everyone.

Crosstour is an ambitious model. By focusing on creating a distinguished, aerodynamic exterior, the brand ran the risk of neglecting key areas. Fortunately they did not and they have instead produced something which has ample space due to the under-floor storage area and the reversible cargo floor panels but which also comes with amazing interior features with its exquisite decorative touches stretching across the entire cabin.

The options currently available include two distinct types of trim depending on whether it is the Crosstour EX or the EX-L. The EX-L comes with Real Time four wheel drive whilst the EX has an array of different features including Bluetooth, auto on and off headlights, HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera and an USB audio interface.

Other features include the headlights with their projector-beams, enhanced fog lights, the moonroof, powered side mirrors which defrost themselves, P225/65R17 all season tires, auto up/down function for the driver and front passenger, chrome door handles, 17 inch aluminum wheels and dual-function air conditioning. There are also audio controls for the 360-watt AM/FM 6-disc audio system in the steering wheel, cruise control, a compass, a removable utility box, outside temperature indicator and the seats can be folded down with ease.

Honda has also updated the colours adding Twilight Blue Metallic which now replaces Glacier Blue Metallic while Tango Red Pearl has been replaced by Basque Red Peal.
