2010 Honda Accord Crosstour

TORRANCE, CA - The all-new 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour crossover utility vehicle (CUV) is set to debut Nov. 20, according to American Honda Motor Co.

The Accord Crosstour combines the refinement of a sedan with versatile characteristics of a sport utility vehicle. Leveraging the benefits of a car-based platform, the Accord Crosstour starts with the refinement of the Accord V-6 Sedan and further expands utility with a functional profile for increased cargo space.

Increased functionality is provided by an under-floor storage area in the rear of the vehicle and reversible cargo floor panels ideal for dirty objects. Cargo area access is further enhanced by a tailgate with a large opening and a low lift-over height.

Available in two model choices (the EX and EX-L), all Accord Crosstour models come standard with a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) designed for power and efficiency. The engine produces 271 hpr at 6,200 RPM and 254 lb-ft. of torque at 5,000 RPM while achieving an EPA-rated city/highway fuel economy of 18/27 mpg 2 on 2WD models. The VCM cylinder deactivation system is programmed to run on 3, 4 or 6 cylinders, based on current power requirements. A technologically advanced 5-speed automatic transmission is standard equipment. For CUV capability, the Accord Crosstour provides amble ground clearance and Real Time™ 4WD drive is available.

Manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) will start at $29,670, according to the automaker. More information is available at www.hondanews.com.
