102Crossover 'coupes' selling diddly-squat

The 1980s will be remembered for the liftback coupe, a bodystyle that, aside from the Nissan 370Z and a few other isolated cases, is mostly nonexistent today. In all likelihood, the late 2000s and early 2010s will be remembered in 20 years time by a spate of bizarre lifted four-door 'coupes' that popped onto the market.

Honda has announced it will debut a concept version of the 2013 Crosstour at the New York Auto Show next month.
