Optional all-wheel drive; smooth and powerful V6; decent fuel economy; spacious back seat; solid technology roster
All-wheel drive only available on fancy EX-L V6; limited cargo capacity compared to true crossover SUVs
The Crosstour is unchanged for the 2015 model year.
Since there's so much to gain from the V6's power and so little to lose from its fuel economy, choosing at least the EX V6 seems like a no-brainer if you can swing it. Ideally, we'd want the EX-L model's leather upholstery too, as it makes for even more supportive seats. Find a Honda Crosstour for sale
The Crosstour hatchback is offered in two trim levels (EX and EX-L), each of which offer two engine choices (4-cylinder or V6). All-wheel drive is only available on the EX-L V6. All Crosstour models have five seats.
The base EX ($28,400) comes standard with 17-inch wheels, fog lights, air conditioning, a rearview camera with a small rearview-mirror display, Bluetooth, a 10-way power driver's seat, a sunroof, and a 7-speaker audio system (including a subwoofer) with a USB audio interface and an auxiliary audio jack.
The EX V6 ($32,100) adds the V6 engine and the 6-speed automatic transmission, 18-in alloy wheels, keyless entry/ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-in infotainment screen in the dashboard (including a larger rearview camera display), the LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system, a feature that reads aloud text messages, a 4-way power passenger seat, Aha mobile app integration, a separate audio touchscreen and Pandora Internet Radio.
The EX-L ($32,400) reverts to the 4-cylinder engine and 5-speed transmission but adds additional safety features such as forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning. It also includes satellite radio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, leather upholstery and heated front seats with driver memory functions.
The EX-L V6 ($34,800) adds back the V6 powertrain and the EX V6's 18-in wheels, as well as a HomeLink garage-door opener. All-wheel drive is optional on the EX-L V6 for around $1,500 extra.
Optional on all EX-L models is a navigation system ($2,100) that brings a higher-resolution 8-in infotainment screen, voice-command functionality, 16 gigabytes of digital music storage and illuminated auxiliary steering-wheel controls.

Acura TSX Sport Wagon -- Like the Crosstour, the TSX Sport Wagon is based on the Accord's architecture and features a similar 4-cylinder engine. Unlike the Crosstour, however, the TSX Sport Wagon is not available with all-wheel drive.
Toyota Venza -- The Venza is the Crosstour's closest rival, and it offers a combination that the Crosstour does not: 4-cylinder power and optional all-wheel drive.
Subaru Outback -- The Outback is more crossoverlike than ever, and it outdoes even the Venza with its standard 4-cylinder, all-wheel-drive package.
