Honda Accord Crosstour meets public eye
Accord has been Honda’s leading mid-size automobiles serious since it’s start back in 1976. The Accord became the first Japanese car to be produced in the U.S in 1982, and the name is sometimes as loud as Honda itself, at least for a certain segment of buyers.
After a long enough wait and tension, as Honda released an official set of photos and other details for the newest Accord Crosstour 2010. However North America might see it go live as early as late autumn.
The main plus of the model as we see it at this point is the “4WD” badge meaning that the Accord Crosstour will either be offered with all-wheel drive as standard or as an option. The five-door Crosstour is based on the North American market Accord sedan with Honda claiming that it combines car-like ride and refinement with a Crossover Utility Vehicle’s (CUV) increased ride height and all-weather potential.
Erik Berkman, vice president of American Honda:
“We know SUV buyers like the commanding view of the road that comes with a high eye-point and like the comforts of living with an SUV. “This vehicle meets the needs of buyers looking for those attributes yet at the same time want an image that is different from a conventional SUV.”
We also like the aggressive profile, which might be inspired for the interesting concept Acura ZDX. This is to be a V6 engined car with 271 horsepower. We will keep you posted once Honda releases details on a possible Euro model.
