The 2015 Honda Crosstour looks like nothing you have seen on the road before. It looks like a crossover between wagon, SUV crossover and sedan. Crosstour used to be based on Accord sedan and it looks like larger version of it but with a fastback style rear. Even with this hard to love styling it doesn’t mean it’s all that bad. If you search higher level of quality and dependability, rather than just looks, than this car might be for you.
At the first glance, 2015 Honda Crosstour looks lot like a hybrid from the outside at least when it comes to design. It has length of a wagon and it’s tall like a SUV but yet stylish like a sedan. There will be some makeovers in this year’s model including grille and front bumper. There is also expanded drivers mirror which helps reduce the blind spot angle. Equipped with 17” and 18” aluminum-alloy wheels depending on trim level and new adaptive halogen headlights.
Interior is constructed with high quality materials with leather-trimmed seats and stylish dashboard. Center stack has very nice hi-tech design including some optional LCD screens. Crosstour has supportive, roomy seats in the front, and especially spacious seating in back. Behind the rear seat there is a cargo area with reversible floor panels. Lack of cargo space is evident, probably compensation for the low laying roof. Tinted moon-roof is standard on every trim. As for the technology features 2015 Honda Crosstour is at very top. Honda satellite linked navigation systems with voice recognition, USB interface, Bluetooth hands-free link, and others. Lot of equipment is optional and dependable of a trim level.
