The Honda Crosstour is a niche-of-one vehicle. You can make it what you want, a swoopy sedan or fastback SUV, both with good cargo capacity. Built on the Accord platform, it has good power with the four-cylinder and 5-speed automatic; excellent with the V6 and 6-speed. Ride is smooth and firm, handling precise. All-wheel drive is available.
