Should I Buy the 2014 Honda Crosstour?
The 2014 Honda Crosstour is a good choice if you want responsive shifting, a large backseat and second-row seats that are easy to fold down. The available leather seats are a plus as well. However, some occupants find the front seats uncomfortable, and the cargo area isn't as large as some competitors. Its large turning circle limits its agility, and there are better options for towing.
