The Honda Crosstour Is Ending Its Tour Of Duty

A few years ago, Honda tried to lure more customers into their dealerships by rolling out a new version of their popular Accord. By adding a sloping hatchback and jacking the vehicle up in the air, they created the Accord Crosstour, a unique mix between a station wagon, a crossover and a sedan.

In retrospect, that recipe might not have been perfect. Sales were never up to par, especially since the Crosstour (it later lost the Accord moniker) was in a grey area of the Honda lineup: it’s more expensive than the CR-V, less popular than the Accord, less spacious than the Pilot…

All of which is why we were not surprised to learn that the Crosstour will be axed at the end of the 2015 model-year. Since the Honda SUV lineup is stronger than ever –with the 2016 Pilot, the all-new HR-V and the Acura MDX– the manufacturer wants to concentrate Marysville plant production on vehicles that sell well.

This means that if you have thought about getting a new Crosstour, you're time is running out.
