Honda Accord Crosstour News
The Honda Crosstour has been something of an automotive whatcha-ma-call-it. Buyers have found it hard to identify what the high-riding wagon is all about, and so have we. Honda even started out by calling it the Accord Crosstour, and then changed its name to help give it more of its own identity. But with
When the Honda Accord Crosstour launched back in 2009 as a 2010 model, we didn't quite know what to make of it. We weren't exactly taken with its styling and we didn't get its value equation, either. It drove well enough, but fell behind the segment's fierce competition in terms of space, amenities, visibility and pricing.

In a roundtable with reporters at an event related to the Tokyo Motor Show, Tetsuo Iwamura, President and CEO of American Honda, told us that he's been surprised by the Crosstour crossover's slow sales:
Ah, the Honda Crosstour. The oddly shaped, curiously impractical crossover carries on for another model year, albeit with a slightly shortened name. That's right, for 2012, Honda has dropped the 'Accord' name from the Crosstour, meaning it will now have to stand alone in the automaker's lineup (and on the company's sales charts, natch).
