2015 Honda Crosstour Overview

Is the 2015 Honda Crosstour a Good Used Wagon?

While the 2015 Crosstour is a good used wagon, its rivals offer more room for your stuff and better savings at the pump.

Used 2015 Honda Crosstour Performance and Interior

The 2015 Crosstour’s standard four-cylinder engine makes 192 horsepower and comes with a five-speed automatic transmission. An available 278-horsepower V6 uses a six-speed automatic instead. While the four-cylinder has a decent amount of grunt, the V6 delivers much more power and little difference in fuel economy. Expect 19-22 mpg in the city and 27-30 mpg on the highway, which is below the class average. Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard, but all-wheel drive (AWD) is available. The Crosstour handles competently and has a quiet, comfortable ride.

Seating for five, cloth upholstery, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat come standard in the Crosstour. EX-L models offer leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable front passenger seat. Both the front and rear seats have ample head- and legroom. The Crosstour’s oddly shaped rear window hampers visibility out of the back. Cargo space is low for the class, at 25.7 cubic feet with all seats in use and 51.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.

Standard features include a moonroof, a seven-speaker audio system, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and a USB port. Upper trims add dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touch-screen display, Bluetooth audio streaming, and a navigation system. With such a high number of buttons on the dash, the standard audio system can be overwhelming. The EX-L with Navigation trim employs voice recognition, simpler touch-screen controls, and fewer physical buttons on the center stack.

How Safe Is the Crosstour?

In each of the four crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 2015 Crosstour earned the highest score of Good, which is better than most other wagons.

A rearview camera, which has a display embedded in the rearview mirror, comes standard. EX-L models come with forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and Honda’s LaneWatch, which shows you what’s in your passenger-side blind spot using a camera mounted to the sideview mirror. Some of the Crosstour’s rivals offer more safety features, like adaptive cruise control and parallel parking assist.

Should I Consider Another Used Crosstour?

Honda began producing the Crosstour for the 2010 model year and discontinued it after 2015. For 2013, the Crosstour received styling updates, a more powerful available V6 engine, an optional six-speed automatic transmission, and several safety features. Buying a 2013 or 2014 Crosstour will save you money while getting you many of the 2015 model’s features.

Which Used Honda Crosstour Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Honda Crosstour comes in three trims: EX, EX-L, and EX-L with Navigation. The EX-L trim is the best value. It has leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch display, Bluetooth, and several advanced safety features, including Honda LaneWatch and forward collision warning.

For added peace of mind, consider a certified pre-owned Crosstour. Honda extends its original new-car limited powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles for all certified pre-owned models, and it extends the new-car non-powertrain warranty to four years or 48,000 miles. If the CPO Honda you purchase is more than four years old or has more than 48,000 miles, you’ll receive a one-year/12,000-mile non-powertrain limited warranty. Honda CPO vehicles must pass a 182-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Honda’s warranty page carefully.

2015 Honda Crosstour and Other Vehicles to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Honda Crosstour or 2015 Honda Accord?

The Honda Accord is a midsize sedan with a high-quality interior. It has a similar engine lineup and seating dimensions to the Crosstour. The Accord doesn’t come standard with some of the Crosstour’s features, like a power-adjustable driver’s seat and moonroof. However, the Accord comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control and hands-free text messaging, and it offers adaptive cruise control (unlike the Crosstour). The Accord’s lower average price and superior base mpg ratings make it a better value than the Crosstour.

Which Is Better: 2015 Honda Crosstour or 2015 Honda CR-V?

Although the Honda CR-V is a compact SUV and the Crosstour is a wagon, the two vehicles offer similar benefits that make them suitable for comparison purposes. If having a spacious cargo hold and class-leading fuel economy are top priorities, the CR-V makes a better choice. It also has more available advanced safety features, like automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. However, if you’re looking for a refined cabin, a standard moonroof, or an optional engine for more power, go with the Crosstour.

Which Is Better: 2015 Honda Crosstour or 2015 Toyota Venza?

The Toyota Venza has more cargo room than the Crosstour. However, unless cargo space is your top concern, go with the Crosstour. The Venza has a low-rent interior, seats that get uncomfortable on long journeys, and a rough ride if equipped with the available larger wheels. It also has a noisy and underpowered standard four-cylinder engine. Like the Crosstour, the Venza offers an available V6 for extra power, but its fuel economy falls short of the Crosstour’s already poor numbers.
