V-6 engine standard, four-wheel drive available
TORONTO, Oct. 6 /CNW/ - The all-new 2010 Honda Crosstour will feature a versatile, upscale 5-passenger interior with an innovative rear storage area, a standard 3.5-litre i-VTEC V-6 engine and available four-wheel drive when it goes on sale in November.
"Honda has a longstanding reputation for maximizing interior space and utility in its vehicles," said Jerry Chenkin, executive vice president of Honda Canada Inc. "Like the award-winning Honda Fit, the Honda Crosstour uses a versatile design to provide an interior that functions with the practicality of a larger vehicle."
The rear storage area features an innovative 8-inch deep under-floor Hidden Removable Utility Box with a reversible lid, featuring both plush-carpeted and durable-plastic sides. Levers near the interior fender wells, conveniently accessible from the tailgate opening, allow for one-touch conversion of the seats into the floor for additional cargo space.
The interior design is intended to enhance the feeling of width and space in the passenger cabin while creating a premium and accommodating atmosphere. The inset sculpting of the instrument panel along with a wide centre console increases the sense of roominess. Intuitively grouped controls for the audio, climate and available navigation system are designed to operate with solidity and precision.
The exterior styling evolves the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) concept by integrating a sleek and aerodynamic shape that blends sporty, low-profile contours with versatile CUV functionality.
Additional details and photos of the Honda Crosstour will be announced later this fall.
