2011 Honda Accord Crosstour badge overkill – Click above for high-res image gallery

The 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour is arguably one of the ugliest beasts to beat up the streets in a long time. From its too-high stance to its odd, bulbous profile and protruding grille, the look is wrong on many levels.

For one Massachusetts driver, though, Honda's own design wasn't quite wrong enough. No, this misguided owner took his Crosstour from pretty ugly to downright terrifying, all with the simple application of badges and decals. Starting with an ill-advised Type R badge up front, the madness didn't stop until there were matching Apple decals adorning the rear deck.

In between, the front and rear got red Type R-style Honda emblems, red pinstriping and, as if all that weren't enough, what appears to be a "V6" badge on the grille – you know, to flaunt the 3.5-liter underhood. Hit the gallery and see what else you can decode from this parts-store lettering extravaganza. Thanks for the tip, Frank!

      The ricer boys at VTEC.yo all just creamed their pants.

      It looks like someone is just very happy with their car.

      am i the only one who thinks crosstour is not ugly?
        • 3 Years Ago
        Yes.
        • 3 Years Ago
        No. I like the Crosstour as well. Like how I like the BMW X6 and the Nissan Juke.
        • 3 Years Ago
        I don't like it and I think it's ugly, but I also think that many people here over-exaggerate how ugly it is by comparing it to the Aztek. I mean you get less bashing of the MKZ over here..
        • 3 Years Ago
        I like it. Yes I own one. It grows on you. Great ride, very quiet and great gas mileage.
        • 3 Years Ago
        No, I love the way this thing looks, but then I also like the ZDX, 5GT, and the X6M, so I might be in the minority here
        This is not /sarcasm

      I wonder what is going on in this person's mind. This is almost as bad as the dragon corvette which is frequently spotted at the local Evansville, Indiana wal-mart.

      I am completely not surprised it has MA plates.
        • 3 Years Ago
        As a MA resident, I was not expecting this to be from MA... but I am no surprised.

        What IS baffling, though, is that the owner seems to be from the city, not from a suburb/rural MA. Additionally, who has the mentality to buy a Crosstour and then apply stickers? Unless someone's dad really hated it and passed it on to their son...

        As a MA resident I urge you to not judge us all from this one outlier!

      Needs a hood scoop. You know, for the VTAK turbo.

      I'll rather walk to my destination...

      I hear all the time how everyone is tired of the same old designs and that one car usually rips of another brand(like they all didn't rip each other of at some point) and then when we finally get something different you all idiots label it ugly. Well thanks for discouraging progress we can all go back to the cookie cutter car designs of the past. Comments like the ones here are why concept cars get neutered.

      Where's the huge "POWERED BY HONDA"

        • 3 Years Ago
        Or the "I heart my Honda" with the "nda" removed?
      • 3 Years Ago
      Ugh.
      • 3 Years Ago
      To each his own.

      It that 's what makes this Crosstour owner feel good - or better, given the comments he is going to get about his/her Crosstour - so be it. Leave him/her alone.
