Since first entering the US market in 1959, Honda has been a bastion of reliability for American car owners. In 2010, the Japanese manufacturer introduced a new addition to its SUV line-up: the five-door Honda Crosstour hatchback. Based on the same platform as the Honda Accord, the Crosstour attempts to marry the convenience of an SUV with the styling of a sedan.
In the context of Honda's other SUV offerings, the Crosstour splits the difference between the smaller CR-V and the larger Pilot. The Crosstour offers two rows of seats for human cargo, and a spacious rear trunk for everything else. Now in its second generation, the 2013 Crosstour has undergone a subtle makeover. Honda streamlined the front end, reworked the hatch, and improved fuel economy across both the four-cylinder and V6 models.
