Ambivalence abounds in our review of the 2013 Honda Crosstour. reviewer Kristen Varela finds the five-seat hatchback’s newly restyled exterior eclectic, to put it kindly — she calls it “some crazy experiment from a chop shop.” Somehow, though, that oddness translates into impressive practicality with regard to ease of entry and cargo space.

Read Varela’s conflicted critique below.
