Cabin nicely designed, very comfortable, luxury level details. Awd to give confidence on iffy roads or surprise weather. Main drawbacks are outdated radio...think digital alphanumerics from the 80s...and reduced blindspot views. Very happy with purchase and recommend this xtour to those who want an accord variant.
Sweet, sweet ride
2012 Honda Accord CrossTourLee John - Los Angeles, CA04/09/2017
I have the 2012 V6 AWD EX-L model (no nav). It's the 5th car I've owned so far, and by far my favorite. First off the exterior looks freaking awesome. It's a ninja wagon. The interior is super sleek black leather with some subtle vanity lighting. I surf and play in a band. It's got enough space for my shortboards and a couple dudes. I can fit enough stuff for duo gigs, or if I need to fit my full drum set I can drop the back seats and it all fits well. The engine is powerful enough to merge/pass very effectively. It handles like a car on steroids, very stable feel and smooth as butter. I'm getting about 400 miles to a tank (freeway) which translates to just under 30 mpg (if I drive fairly conservatively). I say get one.
I am a sports car fan and this car is beautiful! She looks like a drop of liquid black pearl racing through the air. Second thing is her functionality. Two adults can sit comfortably in the very comfortable front bucket seats with plenty of room for two grandkids plus groceries in the back seat. I do commercial gardening and everything I need inside the hatchback area with great ease of accessibility. With a five speed transmission she has great acceleration and top end speed when fourth gear kicks in at 55 you get that wonderful boost of power.
Her turning radius isn't as tight as you would hope, and the brakes are a bit squishy, but those are the only minor criticisms that I have. I just wish it came with leather seats.
