TORRANCE, CA - December 2, 2010: Honda has told The Auto Channel that the 2011 Honda Accord Crosstour combines the sophisticated refinement of a premium sedan with versatile aspects of an SUV. Leveraging the many benefits of a car-based platform, the Accord Crosstour starts with the top-level refinement of the Accord V-6 Sedan and further expands utility with a sleek-yet-functional profile for increased cargo space.

A bold and sleek exterior conveys a prestigious presence from the outside, while premium interior styling extends from the passenger compartment into the cargo area. Increased functionality is provided by an under-floor storage area in the rear of the vehicle and reversible cargo floor panels for accommodating dirty objects. Cargo area access is further enhanced by a tailgate with a large opening and a low lift-over height.

New for 2011, the most frequently used climate control buttons are now positioned on the left side of the control stack, closer to the driver for ease-of-use. Less-frequently used buttons are now positioned on the right side.

All Accord Crosstour models come standard with a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) for power and efficiency. The engine produces 271 horsepower at 6,200 RPM and 254 lb-ft. of torque at 5,000 RPM, while achieving an EPA-rated city/highway/combined fuel economy of 18/27/21 mpg1 on 2WD models. For 2011, the Accord Crosstour EX-L 4WD fuel economy improves by 1 mpg in city, highway and combined driving for a city/highway/combined EPA rating of 18/26/21.

The VCM cylinder deactivation system is programmed to run on 3, 4 or 6 cylinders, based on current power requirements. A technologically advanced 5-speed automatic transmission is standard equipment. For CUV capability, the Accord Crosstour provides ample ground clearance and Real Time™ 4WD drive is available.
