Honda Accord Crosstour launched

Honda has launched its new Accord Crosstour for the North American market. According to Honda, the saloon/SUV crossover mixes car-like ride quality and refinement, with a SUV-style raised ride height and driving position. Styling changes over the regular Accord include a more pronounced front grille, large C-pillars and an aggressively-styled rear end.

Erik Berkman, vice president of American Honda Motor Company, said:

We know SUV buyers like the commanding view of the road that comes with a high eye-point and like the comforts of living with an SUV.

Honda sources have said there are no immediate plans to launch the Accord Crosstour in the UK or Europe.
