Used Car: 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour Review
The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour has high safety scores for its class, but there are other wagons with more cargo space and better fuel economy ratings.
The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour comes standard with a six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission that reviewers liked for the most part. They appreciated the Accord Crosstour’s acceleration and power on the highway, but said they would have liked a four-cylinder and manual transmission as fuel-saving options. Fuel economy is on the low end of the class at 18/27 mpg city/highway. The Accord Crosstour came standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available. The all-wheel drive system’s weight negatively affects the braking, according to some test drivers, and the Accord Crosstour’s extra weight over the 2010 Accord sedan doesn’t help handling either.
Reviewers liked the materials in the Accord Crosstour’s interior, and they said the interior is finished similarly to the Accord sedan’s. Some reviewers wrote that the Accord Crosstour seats five comfortably, but others commented that the sloping roofline decreases headroom in the back seat. The Accord Crosstour has 25.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. Even though the 2010 Accord Crosstour has more cargo space than the Accord sedan, it still doesn’t compete with other wagons in its class. Many reviewers thought the Accord Crosstour needs more standard features, especially in comparison with competitors that provide more amenities. The Accord Crosstour comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, a seven-speaker stereo with a six-disc CD changer, cruise control, a moonroof and an outside temperature indicator. Available features include leather-trimmed seating, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory settings and a navigation system.
Other Cars to Consider
The 2010 Toyota Venza has a longer list of standard features and 34.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. The Venza doesn’t come with a standard V6 engine, but it gets 21/29 mpg city/highway with the base four-cylinder engine, which is better than the Accord Crosstour.
The 2010 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen is another choice for those who want better fuel economy. It has three available engines including a diesel engine, which is rare for the class. The base engine gets 22/30 mpg city/highway, while the diesel engine gets 30/42 mpg. The Jetta SportWagen also has more cargo space than the Accord Crosstour, with 32.8 cubic feet of space behind the back seat.
