This Slow Selling Honda Has Just Been Killed Off

Sales

It was screwed from the start.

Honda has finally decided to pull the plug on its slowselling Crosstour. The existence of the wagon, formerly known as the AccordCrosstour, has always been a mystery. We wondered what the hell Honda was thinkingmaking a wagon on the old Accord platform, and apparently consumers did too. Itjust never caught on, with its best sales year coming all the way back in 2010when 28,851 units were moved. The Crosstour hasn't come close to that mark in recent years.

The Crosstour seemed doomed from the start with its odddesign making it look like a stunted CUV or a sedan with a tumor. The fact thatit could be so long and only offer two rows of seats didn’t help matters much. Italso cost more than an Accord and CRV despite offering no discernableadvantages over either, unless you like people pointing and laughing at you onthe road. The Crosstour should serve as a cautionary tale for otherautomakers: If you’re going to release a wagon don’t half-ass it.
