Default Four-cylinder Honda Crosstour priced, on sale today




Quote:
Honda figured out that its slow-selling Crosstour, the Accord-based, slope-backed, crossover, would still have plenty of pep and get better gas mileage with a four-cylinder engine.So for the 2012 model year, we finally have a price on the optional model:$27,655, excluding an $810 destination fee. The model officially went on sale today at Honda dealerships.

The base EX four-cylinder Crosstour comes with features that include heated side mirrors, a backup camera, Bluetooth connectivity, seven-speaker stereo and a 10-way power driver's seat.

That figure is $2,685 less than a base EX V-6-equipped Crosstour, which starts at $30,340 and adds more features than just the engine, including noise cancellation, fog lights, chrome door handles, dual-zone automatic climate control and a four-way power passenger seat.

The EX-L trim four-cylinder Crosstour is available for $30,705. The model comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, power passenger seat and leather upholstery. The four-cylinder is rated at 21/29 mpg city/highway and 24 mpg combined.

The four-cylinder is only available with front-wheel drive, while the V-6 has an all-wheel-drive option it's available for $1,450 on the EX-L trim.

This will surely spark the sales of the Crosstour. Clearly the problem was a lack of 4 cylinder engine and had nothing to do with the fact that even Subaru owners find it pretty ugly and that's saying something.

So basically 28k for a ugly, slow and oversized accord there's a winner.

We have a 2010 Accord Sedan that my wife drives and I would disagree that adding a 4 cylinder Crosstour with most of the options standard will increase sales significantly.
We test drove one before buying a 6 cylinder sedan and disliked it quite a bit.
The biggest problem we both had with it was rear visibility.
My suspicion is that most people who test drove both will make the same call which is the real reason for their poor sales numbers.

If they had come out with it in the base (low option) 4 cylinder configuration at maybe $22,000 they might have picked up a decent amount of sales but the $2600 difference between the 4 cylinder ($27700) and the 6 cylinder ($30700) Crosstour makes the choice easy once you actually test drive both becasue the 6 cylinder is way nicer to drive. Anybody who can afford $28K can probably come up with enough extra money to make 10% higher payments.

Honestly, I don't see that they have gained anything by adding the 4 cylinder option.
