The 2013 Crosstour is one of the first Honda models available with the new keyless Smart Entry with Push Button start. The 2013 Crosstour also features Honda’s LaneWatch™ blind spot display, which uses a camera system mounted on the passenger mirror to provide an enhanced rearward view of the passenger side roadway. Other standard visibility enhancing features include the rearview camera and new re shaped rear headrests.

Honda’s Crosstour has been a lightning rod for controversy since the first images of the crossover appeared on social networking sites back in September of 2009. Almost immediately, commenters began hurling insults towards the mid size CUV, many disappointed that the (then called) Accord Crosstour was less wagon as rumored early on in the model’s development and more, uh, giant four door humpback hatch. From some angles, the Crosstour’s hood and grille appeared almost an exaggerated caricature, both features seemingly too large for its body.

Count on the revised fascia making the cut, the grille now sporting a chunkier chrome surround, with sharper creases below the headlamps. A large, blacked out lower fascia houses the fog lamps and stretches across the front, met in the middle by a sill plate of contrasting color in an attempt to lend the Crosstour a more SUV like appearance. The lower blackout treatment extends to the side sills and around the back, where it meets a revised, more horizontal tailgate intended to continue the rugged tone.

Honda unveiled the 2013 Crosstour Concept today at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS), providing the first official glimpse of a more capable looking exterior styling direction for the luxurious mid size CUV. Set to go on sale this fall, the Crosstour’s defined lines will resonate more clearly with the active consumers that form the largest portion of the premium crossover segment. The 2013 Crosstour V-6 will feature improved fuel economy thanks to its new 6-speed automatic transmission, while both four-cylinder and V-6 versions will benefit from a host of safety and visibility upgrades.

2013 Honda Crosstour Interior :
The Crosstour Concept features a more capable, SUV-like styling direction for Honda’s mid-size crossover. A more aggressive and athletic front end, new contrasting moldings on the lower door garnish, and cleaner front and rear fascias anchored by the rugged look of finished sill plates provide more visual strength to the Crosstour Concept. Adding to the SUV like stance, new rear fender finish helps give the Concept a more solidly planted appearance. Up front, the new integrated foglamp treatment is complemented by a slotted finish beneath the headlights, which helps integrate the new, bolder grille. The revised tailgate sports a more horizontal design to add visual width to the sculpted lines at the rear of the Crosstour.

Honda is re aiming the Crosstour at “active consumers,” so those new capable looks come down to foglights shrouded in embossed polygons, and the soft-roader rugged esque front bumper, and dark trim skirting the bodywork. There’s also a new grille that helps clean up the front end. The rear gets stressed horizontals to emphasize the concept’s width, but this is the only photo Honda has released, so we’re not sure yet what other changes (if any) are in store for the 2012 model. The new face looks modestly better than the original, but based one what we see here, we’re unclear how this updated look will improve the Crosstour’s frigid sales.

Fuel economy has improved across the board. The four-cylinder model has an EPA estimated rating of 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with a 25 mpg combined rating. The V-6 model has significantly better fuel economy than last year with an EPA estimated rating of 20 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway, and 23 mpg combined in front-wheel drive models, while all-wheel drive models drop those ratings to 18 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined.

2013 Honda Crosstour Exterior :
The 2013 Crosstour will provide a host of visibility enhancements, and will be one of the first models to receive the Honda-exclusive LaneWatch™ blind spot display, which uses a camera system mounted on the passenger mirror for an enhanced view of the passenger side roadway. Standard equipment to further enhance visibility on the 2013 Crosstour will also include re shaped rear headrests, a rearview camera and an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror.

Standard Crosstour convenience features include an automatic dimming rearview mirror, auto on/off headlights, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and USB audio interface. Other available features on the 2013 Crosstour will include a hard drive based navigation system, Pandora internet radio interface, XM satellite radio and an SMS text to speech function.

Fundamentally, the packaging appears to carry over although its interior appointments will be substantially different (and not shown at New York). Engines will considerably more fuel-efficient, and the V-6 model will get a new six speed automatic. Safety equipment gets a boost, too, with the introduction of a lane departure system, forward collision warning, a rearview backup camera, and infotainment systems have been updated with USB and Bluetooth included in all models, plus an available Pandora radio interface, text-to-speech functions, and a new hard drive nav system.

2013 Honda Crosstour Engine :
The Crosstour’s mechanicals were not available for public viewing in New York, but Honda assures us that buyers will have their choice of either a re engineered and more powerful 3.5 liter V 6, or a 192 hp, 2.4 liter four cylinder engine (output figures for the V 6 weren’t provided). V 6 models will get a six speed automatic and the option of Honda’s Real Time 4WD system. Four cylinder models will have to make do with a five speed auto and front wheel drive.

Honda says the new production Crosstour will be available with an eight inch display and LaneWatch blind spot detection along with updated trim and keyless ignition. As before, motivation will come courtesy of a 192 horsepower 2.4 liter four cylinder or a 3.5 liter V6 that shifts through a six speed paddleshift transmission (Honda promises that the latter has been reengineered for more power). Don’t be fooled by the 19 inch wheels, though the production version set to go on sale this Fall will get 18 inchers.

The Crosstour will offer two powertrains for the 2013 model year: a re-engineered and more powerful 3.5 liter, 24 valve, SOHC, i-VTEC V-6 engine, or a 2.4 liter i-VTEC inline four cylinder engine. The 2013 Crosstour V-6 models will feature a 6-speed automatic transmission and utilize Honda Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) technology to achieve class leading V-6 fuel economy1 along with an overall improvement in fuel economy compared to the outgoing model. Also available on Crosstour EX-L V-6 models is Honda’s Real Time 4WDTM system, which sends power to all four wheels when front wheel slippage is detected.

The two different four cylinder Crosstour models, the 2 wheel drive EX and EX-L, are powered by a 2.4 liter, 16 valve DOHC i-VTEC engine. The four cylinder models significantly broaden the Crosstour’s appeal through a lower price point and EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 22 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined. The 4 cylinder engine produces 192 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 162 lb-ft. of torque at 4400 rpm. A technologically advanced 5 speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control is standard equipment.
