The 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour is a tall, five-door hatchback based on the Accord sedan, manufactured and marketed by Japanese automaker Honda.However, this model is not available in Malaysian market. In Dubai, we have the opportunity to look at this model closely.And yes, the car actually looks good except for the overly large front grill.It powered by a 3.5-litre V-6 that will produce 271 horsepower that utilizes i-VTEC for abundant power and efficiency at all engine speeds, while the latest generation of Honda’s Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) activates the engine’s cylinders as needed, providing both brisk acceleration and fuel savings.
Two models are availables, there are EX and EX-L.The only noticeable difference are the Real Time 4-Wheel Drive while the EX is only 2WD. Others differences are only Navigation system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, Leather Interior, Seat position memory, bigger wheels, and few other cosmetics differences.
Below are the specifications that we got from Dubai International Motorshow.
