Originally known as the Accord Crosstour, this crossover was in production for about five years, between 2010 and 2015. For that time, it never managed to establish a respectable position on the market, so the company decided to drop it. Thre years later, we can hear stories about its revival. Though these are unofficial reports, our reliable sources claim that the new model is on its way to come as 2019 Honda Crosstour. It will come with a new design, with numerous improvements in various aspects.
How will 2019 Honda Crosstour look like?
If we look at the previous version, it is easy to notice that this model was designed to compete with the Subaru Outback. The popular crossover/SUV has been around for years and it makes great sales numbers, thanks to its amazing balance between price, practicality and overall quality.
The new 2019 Honda Crosstour is about to come with similar design philosophy, though we expect to see improvements in numerous aspects, compared to the original model. In terms of base design characteristics, the new model will continue with a close relationship with the legendary mid-size sedan, Accord. The Accord has been redesigned recently and it is once again one of the class leaders. Definitely one of the most iconic sedans of all time. With such a reputation, we have no doubt that the new 2019 Honda Crosstour will be a hi-quality car. The two models will have a lot in common, starting from the platform. Besides many mechanical parts, we expect two models to share some of the visual details as well. The new 2019 Crosstour will definitely adopt Honda’s new design language. It will once again come with that wagon/crossover body style, but the front end should be very similar to the Accord. Moreover, the area from the front bumper to the B-pillar should be almost identical.
Of course, the new model will come in a crossover layout. This means a much higher ground clearance compared to the accord. Such design would require a new suspension and several new chassis elements, which will be different compared to the famous sedan.
Just like the new Accord, the 2019 Honda Crosstour interior will also feature a top-notch quality. Expect a cabin full of soft-touch materials and excellent sound isolation, even on higher speeds. Compared to the Accord, we could see similar legroom, but cargo capacity should be much bigger, thanks to its body style. In terms of tech features, expect to see a lot of things already in the base model. Count on a 7-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration, dual-zone climate control and many other things available already in base models.
2019 Honda Crosstour Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, the new 2019 Honda Crosstour should come with a new 2.0-liter turbo inline-four. This engine offers amazing efficiency, so a max power goes around 252 horses. A new engine will come in a pair with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Besides strong acceleration, the new model should also be quite economical. Fuel economy should go somewhere around 22 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway.
Could we see a hybrid powertrain in the offer?
Yes, definitely. The new model will probably come with a hybrid powertrain in the offer too. Once again, it will use the same system that powers the new Accord. So, count on a total output of 212 horsepower and superior fuel economy.
2019 Honda Crosstour Release Date
The new version of this crossover/wagon is yet to be confirmed. Still, some reports suggest 2019 Honda Crosstour release day already in the next year. When it comes to the 2019 Honda Crosstour price, base models will probably go around 30.000 dollars.
