2010 Accord Crosstour Styling Conceals Surprising Versatility

Next evolution of the crossover offers CUV attributes while maintaining a premium sedan feel and a sporty, bold appearance

09/01/2009 - TORRANCE, Calif. -

The all-new 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour evolves the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) concept by integrating a sleek and aerodynamic shape that blends sporty, low-profile contours with versatile CUV functionality, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

"Our concept is to broaden the appeal of the Accord line-up by leveraging traditional Accord strengths of fun-to-drive performance and handling while also adapting to dramatic shifts in the light truck marketplace," said Erik Berkman, vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "The Accord Crosstour accomplishes that by offering a modern interpretation of a CUV while integrating the refinement and efficiency of a premium sedan."

Derived from the Accord Sedan, the Accord Crosstour maximizes car-like ride and refinement, yet maintains capabilities consistent with a CUV's increased ride height and all-weather potential. The Accord Crosstour's styling builds on the Accord's familiar character lines and adds a bolder front grille complemented by a durable lower-body appearance, wedge-shaped C-pillars and an aggressive rear stance. The flowing roofline narrows smoothly into the rear of the vehicle to create an aggressive-looking design, which conceals a unique cargo area that can adapt to large objects that exceed the capacity of a sedan.

"We know SUV buyers like the commanding view of the road that comes with a high eye-point and like the comforts of living with an SUV," said Berkman. "This vehicle meets the needs of buyers looking for those attributes yet at the same time want an image that is different from a conventional SUV."

The Accord Crosstour will be positioned at the top of the Accord family when it goes on sale in fall 2009. Additional details will be announced later in the year. Consumer information is available at http://automobiles.honda.com/future-cars. An Accord Crosstour Facebook page is available at www.facebook.com/accordcrosstour. Additional media information regarding all Honda products is available at www.hondanews.com.





TOV Note:
The following information came from a Canadian dealer, so it may only apply to Canadian market Crosstours:

Hi Jeff, I send you about a month ago details about the Accord Crosstour. Here are some more info because I am a sale manager at a honda dealer in Canada and im currently doing the order for the Crosstour. 3 models will be available, TF1H5AJN, TF2H5AJN and TF2H5AKN. For the color chart, 6 colors will be available.

White diamond pearl NH-603P and NH-603PX
Alabaster silver metallic NH-700M
Crystal black pearl NH-731P and NH-731PX
Polished metal metallic NH-737M
Opal sage Metallic G-532M
Tango red pearl R-525P


We followed up with this person regarding the model codes, and he said that typically model designations that end in "JN" are leather equipped, while model designations ending in "KN" are leather+navi. We'll have to wait and see if the Crosstour is truly only offered with a leather interior.
