Honda has confirmed the latest starting price of the 2012 Honda Crosstour EX four-cylinder. The confirmation has arrived after Honda decided to rebrand this vehicle and call this as Crosstour instead of its previous name which is the Honda Accord Crosstour.
The four cylinder version was actually an additional trim for the existing line-up that is made up of V-6-powered models. Since the 4-cylinder version has a smaller engine it is expected that this model provides lesser horsepower. However, this could still be considered as a best buy since its fuel economy ratings are higher compared to its v-6-powered siblings.
The four-cylinder version is actually referred to as the EX or the entry level model and this is currently sold at starting price of $28,465. This is powered by a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that is capable of producing up to 192 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque. Although its maximum power output and maximum torque is lower compared to the model that is equipped with a larger V-6 engine, its EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 miles per gallon in the city, 29 miles per gallon on the highway, and 24 miles per gallon when combined makes the 4-cylinder Honda Crosstour a top choice for buyers who are in need of a fuel-efficient vehicle.
Aside from its impressive fuel economy ratings, affordable price, and modest power output, the 2012 Honda Crosstour EX offers a number of standard features that would surely delight any buyer. This includes the 17-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, automatic headlights, and foglamps. In addition to this, the Crosstour EX is also equipped with power front seats, dual-zone automatic control, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.
The 2012 Honda Crosstour EX is also a good option for buyers who are in need of a vehicle that offers a lot of qualities found on a station wagon since the EX has plenty of interior space and its cabin is more spacious compared to its hatchback siblings. However, its additional luggage space that is about 10 cubic feet is relatively smaller compared to what the Toyota Venza and the Chevrolet Equinox are offering.
