2011 Honda Accord Crosstour Offers Sleek Design with Surprising Utility
Premium and versatile crossover utility vehicle based on popular Accord
The 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour combines the sophisticated refinement of a premium sedan with versatile aspects of an SUV. Leveraging the many benefits of a car-based platform, the Accord Crosstour starts with the top-level refinement of the Accord V-6 Sedan and further expands utility with a sleek-yet-functional profile for increased cargo space.
A bold and sleek exterior conveys a prestigious presence from the outside, while premium interior styling extends from the passenger compartment into the cargo area. Increased functionality is provided by an under-floor storage area in the rear of the vehicle and reversible cargo floor panels for accommodating dirty objects. Cargo area access is further enhanced by a tailgate with a large opening and a low lift-over height.
New for 2011, the most frequently used climate control buttons are now positioned on the left side of the control stack, closer to the driver for ease-of-use. Less-frequently used buttons are now positioned on the right side.
