2012 Honda Crosstour Overview

Most test drivers said the 2012 Honda Crosstour’s available V6 engine provides enough power for most situations, though some noted that V6-powered rivals like the Nissan Murano feel quicker off the line. A new base four-cylinder engine and a five-speed automatic transmission became standard on the 2012 Crosstour, while V6 models feature a six-speed automatic transmission. The Crosstour gets up to 21/29 mpg city/highway, which is better than what most other midsize SUVs get. While auto writers agreed that the Crosstour delivers composed handling and precise steering, some said that it doesn't feel especially sporty behind the wheel.

Some test drivers wrote that the 2012 Honda Crosstour's cabin is highly functional, with lots of convenient storage spaces, but others reported that the Crosstour’s cabin materials are underwhelming for the class. The Crosstour earned praise for its comfortable and spacious front seats, as well as its back seats, which are comfortable and offer ample headroom. Still, a few reviewers wrote that rearward visibility is limited from the driver’s seat. Standard features include a sunroof, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, a seven-speaker stereo system and a USB port. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, navigation and an upgraded stereo system are available. The Crosstour offers 51.3 cubic feet of cargo space, which is less than what most two-row SUVs have.

Other SUVs to Consider

Like the Crosstour, the 2012 Toyota Venza gets excellent fuel economy for the class with its base four-cylinder engine. It also has significantly more cargo space than the Crosstour, and test drivers liked its spacious interior and comfortable ride.

The 2012 Nissan Murano comes standard with a V6 engine that reviewers said has plenty of power. Additionally, critics reported that the Murano has a stylish interior that’s outfitted with premium materials.
