2010 Honda Accord 2WD EX-L Crosstour Review

XL Accord

A three-quarter front view of a black 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour

In short: A sporty, sedan-based crossover vehicle.

This beefed-up version of the Honda Accord offers sedan-like looks and handling with the versatility and cargo space of a wagon. Opting for a sloping roofline and lift-up rear hatch in place of a trunk, the Crosstour has nearly three-and-a-half times more storage space than the Accord sedan, making it perfect for road trips or hauling large loads of groceries. While the Crosstour's styling is somewhat polarizing — not everyone enjoys the look of a sedan on steroids — this capable crossover is nonetheless an attractive option for families who desire the utility of an SUV without the bulk.
