Honda Crosstour Interior
Automotive journalists say that the cabin of the 2014 Honda Crosstour is well-built and features high-quality materials and a tasteful interior design. However, they complain that a small cargo area and overwhelming dashboard controls make it less appealing than competing wagons and crossover SUVs.
- "The cabin is tightly constructed with new high-quality materials. The center stack features an attractive, high-tech appearance, but it's excessively cluttered with identical-looking buttons." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
The 2014 Honda Crosstour seats five and comes standard with a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Available features include a four-way power-adjustable passenger’s seat, leather upholstery and heated front seats. Test drivers agree that the Crosstour offers enough head- and legroom in the front seats for most adults, and they say the back seats are especially roomy for the class. Critics add that the seats feel very supportive, though some think the lumbar support might make some passengers uncomfortable.
- "The Crosstour is great for passengers thanks to its firm, well-shaped seats and generously proportioned rear quarters." -- AutoTrader
- "The Crosstour offers a roomy cabin, with respectable head- and legroom in the front and rear seats. The seats themselves are comfortable and supportive, though some may find the lumbar support too aggressive." -- Edmunds
The 2014 Honda Crosstour’s standard features include a moonroof, a USB input, Bluetooth, a rearview camera and a seven-speaker audio system. Available features include dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, satellite radio, push-button start, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and Honda LaneWatch, which uses a camera mounted under the passenger side mirror to show the driver what’s in his or her blind spot.
Reviewers complain that the center stack is too cluttered with buttons. However, they say that when the Crosstour is equipped with the optional navigation system, the system’s display screen, voice command interface and centrally located control knob make the Crosstour’s center stack a bit more user-friendly.
- "When it comes to the look of its cabin, the 2014 Honda Crosstour is a dead ringer for the previous-generation Accord sedan on which it is based. This means that the center stack is crowded with a plethora of buttons, and opting for the navigation system only adds to the button overload. Fortunately, the combination of a high-mounted screen, voice activation and a multipurpose control knob serves to simplify operation of the many systems." -- Edmunds
The Honda Crosstour has 25.7 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats in use and 51.3 cubic feet of space when the rear seats are folded. The Crosstour also comes standard with a hidden, removable storage compartment under the cargo floor. Most critics are disappointed that the Crosstour doesn't have as much cargo space as other wagons or crossovers SUVs, and they say that the Crosstour’s large wheel wells take up a lot of space in the cargo area, making it harder to load wide items. A few reviewers like that the mats in the cargo area have both carpeted and plastic sides, which makes them easy to clean.
- "Maximum cargo capacity falls short of crossover standards, however, checking in at just 51 cu ft with the rear seats folded down. That's a usable amount, but virtually every proper crossover offers more. Compared to the regular Accord sedan, though, the Crosstour is a paragon of practicality." -- AutoTrader
- "Compared to an Accord sedan, the Crosstour is indeed more versatile, with the hatchback allowing you to load bulky items more easily. However, there are only 25.7 cubic feet of storage space behind the rear seats and 51.3 cubes with them folded. Intrusive wells for the rear wheels further compromise the usefulness of the space. More traditional wagons and crossovers can accommodate quite a bit more." -- Edmunds
- "In terms of storage, behind the 60/40-split rear seat is a 25.7-cubic-foot cargo area with reversible floor panels, which come in handy when dealing with messy items. With the rear seats folded flat, the Crosstour offers 51.3-cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity, though most wagons and SUVs can accommodate considerably more." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
- "Releasing two levers in the rear drops the 60/40-split folding backseat to create a generous 51.3 cubic feet of cargo space." -- Cars.com (2013)
