The all-new 2023 Honda Crosstour is almost ready to hit the roads. Honda plans to release a new model before the end of the year. It is a sporty crossover with an upscale look and tech-rich interior. Crosstour comes with plenty of standard amenities and is available in three trim levels. On top of that, Crosstour offers two powertrain options.
As for the changes in 2023, there will be a couple of minor upgrades. As you probably know, Crosstour recently made a comeback, so this model is still relatively fresh. It comes with versatility, excellent comfort, and it offers a room for five passengers.
The upcoming 2023 Honda Crosstour will look very similar to the Accord model. The two will share a very similar styling and almost the same exterior features. Whatsoever, character lines are much alike, and the overall design is identical, as well. The Crosstour looks very upscale, and it comes with a sporty vibe.
Honda did it on its latest sedans, and now this crossover follows the same path. The front part looks unique, and we like the aerodynamics and the sharper look. When it comes to exterior upgrades, Crosstour won’t get any changes. The only improvement could be a new exterior color or new optional equipment.
The interior of the 2023 Honda Crosstour is also very similar to the Accord’s interior design. The dashboard is the same, along with a 7-inch touchscreen. However, Crosstour comes with a longer list of standard equipment. That includes dual-zone climate control and the latest phone integrations.
The comfort is excellent, especially up front, thanks to the supportive seats. Interior space is generous, and the legroom is above average for the segment. Cargo area provides up to 51.5 cubic feet of space with folded rear seats. Crosstour could get a couple of new driver-assistance features and possibly the latest updates of the systems.
Engine, Transmission, Fuel Economy
Under the hood, new Crosstour will offer two powertrain choices. More precisely, there won’t be changes in this category. The 2023 Honda Crosstour will ride on a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This unit is capable of producing 192 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. A 5-speed automatic gearbox is still available, which is an exciting move from Honda. Fuel economy provides 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
As for the optional mill, a 3.5-liter V6 provides 280 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of twist. A 6-speed automatic transmission is in the offer, and the optional engine delivers 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. An AWD system is optional, as Crosstour continues to deploy a standard FWD setup. Speculations about the hybrid powertrain are realistic, but that won’t happen before 2023.
2023 Honda Crosstour Price and Release Date
The approaching 2023 Honda Crosstour starts at $30,000. It is the same price as the price of the current model. Thanks to such a small number of upgrades, Honda feels the pricing shouldn’t change at all.
On the other hand, the range-topping trim level costs over $44,000. Honda’s latest crossover will hit the markets before the end of the year. We can’t wait to see the company’s new model, along with the Pilot and Passport SUVs.
