Exterior Features
The Honda Crosstour is a midsize 5-passenger crossover station wagon designed to offer a middle ground between the Honda Accord sedan and the Honda Odyssey minivan. The Crosstour is built on a modified Accord platform and is available in front-wheel (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). The Crosstour is offered in EX and EX-L trims. Standard equipment on the EX includes 17-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, automatic headlights, fog lights, and keyless entry. The EX-L features 18-inch wheels.

Interior Features
The interior of the 2012 Honda Crosstour EX includes cloth upholstery, dual-zone climate control with vents in the second row, power accessories that include power front-passenger seats, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a 7-speaker audio system. The Crosstour EX-L upgrades to leather upholstery and adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, driver-seat memory feature, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cargo cover, Bluetooth connectivity, USB port and satellite radio, and other amenities.

Optional Features
The Honda Crosstour EX-L is offered with an optional voice-activated navigation system with a rearview camera.

Under the Hood
The Honda Crosstour's traditional power plant is a 3.5-liter V-6 engine rated at 271 horsepower and mated with a 5-speed automatic transmission. Newly introduced for 2012 is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 192 horsepower, with improved fuel efficiency. With the larger engine, an AWD system, borrowed from the Honda CR-V, is optional. Lacking a low-range transfer case, the AWD system in the Crosstour is designed for use during inclement weather and not for heavy off-road use.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy figures for the 2012 Honda Crosstour are:
- Crosstour with 4-cylinder engine: 21/29/24 mpg (city/highway/combined)
- Crosstour with V-6 engine and FWD: 18/27/21 mpg
- Crosstour with V-6 engine and AWD: 17/25/20 mpg

Safety
Standard safety features on the 2012 Honda Crosstour include anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, traction control, front-seat side air bags, and side curtain air bags.

In government tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Honda Crosstour received 4 (out of 5) stars for frontal-offset crash  protection. In tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Crosstour received a "Good" rating--the Institute's highest--for frontal-offset and side-impact crash protection, and a "Marginal" rating for roof strength.
