Honda Tries Out New Name and Rebranding With 2012 Model

no thumb

Honda reviewed past performance of Accord Crosstour and uncovered slow sales. Faced with this dealima Honda decided for 2012 to take Accord Crosstour and rename it the Crosstour.

Honda has made these changes hoping to jump start sales and shake off the image of being the  boxy, hatchback version of the Accord.

In the July month end reports Honda sold just under 1,500 Crosstours. So far in 2011 to date 11,518 Crosstours have been sold.  To help shake up the Crosstour perform in showrooms, not just on the road, Honda is giving it more features for 2012 — a standard rear-view camera, Bluetooth hands-free communications and a USB audio interface. The 2012 Honda Crosstour is still available in two trim levels, the Crosstour EX and EX-L, with Real Time 4WD also available on the EX-L model. There is still no 4-cylinder option so power still comes from a 3.5 liter V6 making 271 horsepower at 6,200 RPM and 254 lb-ft. of torque at 5,000 RPM.  Engine produces 271 horsepower and 18 miles a gallon in the city, 26 mpg on the highway.
