Refreshed Honda Crosstour Unveiled

Honda's awkward-looking Crosstour wagon has received a facelift and price drop for model year 2013 but will this be enough to increase sales?
The Crosstour is, without a doubt, Honda's strangest model. The Accord-based wagon/crossover/whatever-they're-calling-it has just undergone a minor refresh for the 2013 model year, accompanied by a slight price drop.

For $525 less than last year's model, Crosstour buyers are treated to the same standard 2.4-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine with a total of 192 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a five-speed automatic, the oddly-shaped Crosstour returns a respectable 22/31 mph city/highway and a combined 25 mpg.

Buyers can also up the performance via an optional 3.5-liter V6 with 278 hp and 252 lb-ft that's mated to a new six-speed automatic. With variable cylinder management, fuel economy has been improved for both front- and all-wheel-drive models, coming in at 20/29/23 mpg and 18/28/22 mpg respectively.

Both the exterior and interior have also been touched up a bit, with the former receiving new front and rear bumpers and a revised front grille. Interior upgrades include improved materials, a seven-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, USB, 60/40 split rear seatback and audio, phone and cruise control buttons on the steering wheel. Pricing starts at $27,230.
