2011 Honda Accord Crosstour Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The Accord is available in a wagon version dubbed Crosstour, and it's the first Accord with a rear hatch since Honda dropped the Accord wagon in the car's 1998 redesign. That was years ago, and now there are competitors like the Subaru Outback and the Toyota Venza.

The Accord Crosstour comes in front- or all-wheel drive. Unlike the Venza and Outback, which offer four- and six-cylinder engines, the Crosstour has only a V-6. Trim levels include the EX and EX-L.

New for 2011
For 2011, the center control stack has been slightly revised. The more frequently used climate control buttons are now positioned on the left side of the stack near the driver, while the less frequently used buttons are now on the right side.

Exterior
A massive grille dominates the front. It's far bigger than the Accord sedan's grille, and it gives the headlights a squinting look that recalls Honda's smaller Civic sedan. In back, the rear body panels coalesce at a black panel below the rear window. Exterior features include:

  • Standard dual tailpipes
  • Standard red taillamps
  • Standard 17-inch wheels
  • 18-inch wheels optional

Interior
The Crosstour's unique three-spoke steering wheel and blue backlit gauges make the familiar interior distinguishable from the Accord sedan. It seats five in two rows of seats.

Releasing two levers in the rear drops the 60/40-split folding backseat to create a generous 51.3 cubic feet of cargo space. Interior features include:

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
