Honda Crosstour Interior
Reviewers say that the cabin of the 2013 Honda Crosstour is well-built. However, they complain that rear visibility is limited, as is cargo space compared to other wagons and crossovers. They also find the sheer number of buttons on the dashboard confusing.
- "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
The 2013 Honda Crosstour seats five. Reviewers like the front seats, but complain that rear visibility is an issue because of the Crosstour's sloping roofline. They recommend the optional rear view camera and appreciate the optional camera in the passenger side mirror, which gives drivers a clear view of their blindspot. The backseat gets complains for not being adjustable.
- "If you're like me, the limited visibility through the rear window will annoy you, even make you feel a tad cloistered. Takes getting used to if you're a driver who likes an expansive view when you look behind." -- Vroom Girls
- "Backseat doesn't adjust" -- Cars.com
- "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
- "Honda tackles the blind-spot issue in a rather interesting way. On the driver's side, the mirror has an outer portion that captures a wider angle and for the passenger side, the screen on the dash uses a camera to show you what's next to you before switching lanes." -- Washington Times
The 2013 Honda Corsstour comes standard with Bluetooth, a USB port, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. Optional features include memory driver's seat and mirrors, Pandora internet radio connectivity, navigation, a rear view camera and satellite radio.
Reviewers like that the base Honda Crosstour has so many standard features, but complain that the center stack is button-heavy and confusing. However, they also say that once you figure all the buttons out, the features work well.
- "On the downside, mastering the system's center control knob for Bluetooth audio, CD, MP3/wma and satellite radio may take a bit of time. " -- Washington Times
- "This means that the center stack is crowded with a plethora of buttons -- 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. There is hidden storage space in the cargo area.
Most reviewers are disappointed that the Crosstour doesn't have more cargo space. Most other wagons and crossovers have much more room. A few reviewers do like that the mats in the cargo area have both carpeted and plastic sides, which make them easy to clean. A few also note that the hidden storage space under the cargo area, with its easy-clean bins, are handy.
- "Compared to an Accord sedan, the Crosstour is indeed more versatile, with the hatchback allowing one to load bulky items 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 impede usefulness. More traditional wagons and crossovers can accommodate quite a bit more." -- Edmunds
- "Relatively small cargo area" -- Cars.com
- "There's a secret compartment in the back, stored underneath the floor of the trunk, which holds a large container for tools, jewelry or whatever else you want to store there; it can easily be removed and rinsed if your kid decides to store a chocolate bar in it (without telling you for six months)." -- Vroom Girls
