Honda Announces Pricing For Smaller-Engined Crosstour
For fans of large-schnozed pseudo-coupe people movers, the Honda Crosstour now comes with a smaller engine, and a lower price: $27,655, for the well-equipped EX model. This is before an $810 destination charge, but also comes in at $2,685 less than the V-6-engined Crosstour. The big-engined model has 79 more horsepower than the Crosstour's 2.4-liter unit; both engines are shared with the Accord coupe and sedan. In those two vehicles, the engine produces 190 horsepower—but in the Crosstour, its output gets bumped slightly to 192 horses. The Crosstour's four-cylinder engine should return 21 mpg city and 29 mpg on the highway, an improvement over the V-6's rating of 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Lest you think the smaller engine reflects a cheaper car, both versions of the Crosstour come loaded with Bluetooth, a 7-speaker MP3-compatible sound system, moonroof, rearview camera, power everything, and the sort of bizarre styling that mirrors its owners' active lifestyles.
