Honda will end Crosstour production, to focus on light trucks instead

Production of the slow-selling Honda Crosstour will end after the 2015 model year. The automaker has decided to stop building the Accord derivative as part of a bigger move to increase truck-production capacity. As a result, the automaker’s plant in East Liberty, Ohio, plant can concentrate on producing the faster-selling CR-V and Acura RDX models.

In addition, Honda will move the production of the Accord hybrid from Marysville, Ohio, plant to its Japanese plant in Sayama. Launched in 2010, sales of the Crosstour have not met expectations. This year, sales dropped even lower. Last month, Honda sold just 742 units of the model.

According to John Mendel, American Honda Motor’s executive vice president, dealerships will soon start to get the new HR-V small crossover, which can be offered to customers targeted by the Crosstour. Mendel added that the all-new 2016 Honda HR-V, which will be launched in the spring, will “create new value” for those looking for a crossover.

2013 Honda Crosstour makes its debut

Honda has announced the full details and pricing of the facelifted 2013 Crosstour. A “concept” version was unveiled earlier this year at the New York Auto Show. The most significant feature of the updated Accord-based crossover is the Crosstour’s new maw, which is not as rotund and is more like a crossover than before.

The Crosstour has a squared-off, chrome grille treatment that links it better to the 2013 Accord and Civic sedans than the exceedingly wide grille of the 2010-2012 model. It comes with a revised lower front fascia that integrates chrome touches in the bigger foglight surrounds and the faux skidplate. At the back, we see a silver-painted skid plate, new reflectors, and model badging placed lower on the hatch.

Crosstour has a blacked-out trim and new wheels, giving it a more squared-off and attractive overall appearance. Furthermore, its interior seems to have copied from the 2013 Accord’s playbook.

New York Auto Show: 2013 Honda Crosstour Concept gets minor updates

The 2013 Honda Crosstour Concept that’s expected to start selling this fall was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show. What it showed the public was that the luxurious mid-size CUV’s styling direction has been improved. The defined lines of the Crosstour are expected to appeal more to active consumers, which comprise the biggest portion of the premium crossover segment.

The 2013 Crosstour V-6 has a better fuel economy due to its new 6-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, both four-cylinder and V-6 versions will be given a bunch of upgrades to its safety and visibility. The Crosstour Concept portrays a more competent SUV-like styling direction for the mid-size crossover.

The Crosstour Concept is visually stronger due to its bolder and more athletic front end, new contrasting moldings on the lower door garnish, and cleaner front and rear fascias that are secured by the rugged appearance of finished sill plates.

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.

Honda announced today two new four-cylinder, two-wheel-drive Crosstour models that will go on sale in January 2012. The new Honda Crosstour will receive a 2.4-liter i-VTEC inline four-cylinder engine delivering 192 hp and 162 lb-ft. of torque at 4,400 rpm. The newest Crosstour will be available in two trim levels: EX and leather-upholstered EX-L. As expected, the EX-L will be available with the Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System. Honda says that the new 2.4-liter i-VTEC inline four-cylinder engine returns 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.

We have to admit that the fuel efficiency was improved, as the 271-horsepower 2WD V6 model delivers 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. The launch of the four-cylinder Crosstour models also brings some standard features such as an automatic dimming rearview mirror, a rearview mirror back-up camera display for improved rear visibility (non-Navigation models), convenient auto-on/off headlights, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and USB audio interface. Moreover, the four-cylinder model comes as standard with body-color door handles and unique 17-inch alloy wheels with P225/65 R17 all-season tires.

2012 Crosstour also brings two new colors: Twilight Blue Metallic replaces Glacier Blue Metallic, and Basque Red Pearl II replaces Tango Red Pearl. The 2012 Honda Crosstour EX receives features such as the projector-beam headlights, a moonroof, body-colored power side mirrors with defrost, auto-up/down driver and front passenger side windows, and rear privacy glass.

Sales of the Honda Crosstour have been quite disappointing, according to American Honda president and CEO Tetsuo Iwamura. When addressing journalists at an event related to the Tokyo Auto Show, Iwamura said that it’s a bad idea for the car to be initially billed as the Accord Crosstour since it made the CUV appear less individual. Honda sold 16,679 units of the Crosstour so far this year.

It is a 36% drop compared to last year’s 25,927. These figures are significantly lower than the 40,000-unit target that Honda first set. There’s a clash in opinion on how the Crosstour looks.

While many consumers said that the 2010 model was ugly, Iwamura considers the Crosstour car to have “beautiful styling.” It isn’t likely that the Crosstour would disappear just yet though since Iwamura had promised that the Crosstour would soon be a successful vehicle sometime in the future.

The 2012 Honda Crosstour uses the crossover SUV formula but with an emphasis on being fuel-efficient, sleek and sporty while maximizing the interior’s versatility, cargo capacity and luxurious feel. Its exterior showcases an aerodynamic, bold appeal that hides a spacious cargo area on the rear side with a huge, lift-over tailgate.

From the passenger compartment to the cargo area, the sophisticated interior styling and detailing extends all throughout.

The vehicle also features an under-floor compartment in the rear side, adding functionality. On the other hand, the reversible cargo floor panels accommodate dirty objects. There are two trim levels available for the Crosstour -- the Crosstour EX and EX-L. Real Time 4WD is available on the EX-L model. The new features of the 2012 Crosstour EX include the USB audio interface, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink a rearview camera, and auto on/off headlights.
