Honda Crosstour facelift

Honda offered a facelift treatment for the Crosstour. The model was not a real success, but here they have a new version of it, which will come with a $525 discount in comparison with the previous one. The carmaker established a starting price of $27.230 for the facelift version of the Honda Crosstour. In fact it looks just like the concept model seen a few months ago. Under the hood it hides a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine capable of generating 192 horsepower and 219 Nm of torque. The engineers have provided a 5-speed automatic transmission to transfer the output to the wheels. As a result the car has a fuel consumption of 22 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg on a combine cycle.

This is actually not all in terms of performance. The Asian manufacturer equips the Honda Crosstour also with a 3.5-liter V6 engine which is capable of producing 278 horsepower and 341 Nm of torque. To send the output to the wheels, the engineers have equipped it with a new 6-speed automatic transmission. It also has variable cylinder management and the fuel consumption reaches 20 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg on a combined cycle for the 2WD models. The 4WD ones have a fuel consumption of 18 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg on a combined cycle. This actually represents a 2 mpg improvement in comparison with the 2012 model year.

The carmaker said the model will also get some upgrades in terms of interior design, but unfortunately there are no photos available to convince ourselves. What we do know is that the new model will receive as standard automatic air conditioning, seven speaker system, 60/40 split rear seatback, but also auto day / night dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth, USB and steering wheel-mounted audio, cruise controls and last, but not least, a phone. This is all for now on the matter.
