The 2012 Honda Crosstour® approaches the crossover SÚV formula from a distinctively sleek, sporty and fuel-efficient perspective while also maximizing the interior's cargo capacity, versatility and premium feel.
The Crosstour's exterior design emphasizes a bold, aerodynamic look that also conceals an accommodating rear cargo area wîth a large, lift-over tailgate. Premium interior styling, appointments and details extend from the passenger compartment all the way through the cargo area. An under-floor storage area in the rear of the vehicle adds functionality, while reversible cargo floor panels accommodate dirty objects.
The Crosstour is available in two trim levels, the Crosstour EX and EX-L, wîth Real Time™ 4WD also available on the EX-L model. For 2012, new features on the Crosstour EX include auto on/off headlights, a rearview camera, Bluetooth®1 HandsFreeLink® and ÚSB audio interface. Two new colors are also available on all Crosstour models: Twilight Blue Metallic replaces Glacier Blue Metallic, and Basque Red Pearl replaces Tango Red Pearl.
The Crosstour comes standard wîth a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine wîth Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) for power and efficiency. The engine produces 271 horsepower at 6,200 RPM and 254 lb-ft. of torque at 5,000 RPM, while achieving an EPA-rated city/highway/combined fuel economy of 18/27/21 mpg2 on 2WD models. Meanwhile the Crosstour EX-L wîth Real Time™ 4WD delivers an EPA-rated city/highway/combined fuel economy rating of 18/26/21 mpg2.
To maximize efficiency, the engine's VCM cylinder deactivation system is programmed to run on 3, 4 or 6 cylinders, based on current power requirements, and a technologically advanced 5-speed automatic transmission is standard equipment. For true utility-vehicle capability, the Crosstour provides 6.2 inches of maximum ground clearance in addition to the available Real Time™ 4WD system.
Besides its new-for-2012 auto on/off headlights, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and ÚSB audio interface, standard features on the Crosstour EX include projector-beam headlights, fog lights, 17-inch aluminum wheels wîth P225/65R17 all-season tires, a moonroof, body-colored power side mirrors wîth defrost, chrome door handles, auto up/down driver and front passenger side windows and rear privacy glass.

Crosstour EX-L adds 18-inch aluminum wheels wîth P225/60R18 all-season tires, leather-trimmed seating surfaces wîth heated front seats, a memory driver-side seat and memory side mirrors wîth reverse tilting capability, a leather-wrapped §teering wheel and gearshift knob, Kevlar® cone audio speakers, front aluminum dome-type tweeter speakers, an auto day/night dimming rearview mirror, a HomeLink™ transmitter and a cargo privacy cover.
The Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System3 and the Real Time™ 4WD mentioned above are available together or separately on the Crosstour EX-L. The Navigation system includes a rearview camera wîth guidance lines integrated into the display.
Safety technology includes the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, a Honda-exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. Additional safety equipment on the Crosstour includes Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®), anti-lock brakes wîth electronic brake distribution and brake assist, side curtain airbags wîth a rollover sensor, driver's and front passenger's side airbags wîth passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, and active front seat head restraints.
