The Honda Crosstour caused a storm in the USA when it was initially launched, American consumers really couldn’t place the car in the Honda line up, was it to be an SUV or was it to be a wagon or somewhere in between.
It does have the AWD system from the Honda CRV, but it doesnt have the off-road capability of the bigger Pilot. Instead it is trapped somewhere between the Odyssey and the CRV. The Crosstour has since been spotted out road testing in China ahead of a possible launch at the Beijing Auto Show next month:
The Crosstour has been codenamed the Accord QE, which might also be its final production name as well. The Honda Accord is already built by Guangzhou Honda, and the Crosstour is also likely to call Guangzhou a home as soon as production starts.
Guangzhou Honda currently has no SUV offerings, whilst the most popular SUV in China, the CRV, is sold via Honda’s other JV, Dongfeng-Honda.
