For the 2012 model year, the Honda Crosstour adds more standard features to the base trim. Also for 2012, the model is now called the Crosstour, not Accord Crosstour. The move is probably in anticipation of the upcoming redesign of the Accord, which is set to debut sometime next year. Or people just kept getting confused.
For 2012, the base Crosstour EX now includes automatic on/off headlights, backup camera, Bluetooth and USB audio interface as standard equipment. There are no significant changes to the EX-L trim, which has an available all-wheel-drive system. Front-wheel drive is standard on both trims.
The 2012 Crosstour starts at $30,340, excluding $810 for destination. That’s $350 more than last year, which means the new model is a better value given the added features. The 2012 will go on sale later this summer.
