2010 Honda Accord Crosstour officially revealed… with two photos

2010 Honda Accord Crosstour

After all the spy shots and all the teasers, we’ve been eager to see what the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour looks like. We were all very excited to countdown to Sept. 1 and have Honda release a bunch of details and a bunch of high-res photos for our viewing pleasure.

While Honda did reveal the 2010 Accord Crosstour today, however (and very disappointingly), they did not give us any technical specs and only released two high-res photos (yes, the interior remains a mystery).

The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour will be the range-topping model in the Accord family. It will go on sale in fall 2009. We’ll have more details and photos for you as soon as we get them.

Follow the jump for the press release.

2010 Accord Crosstour Styling Conceals Surprising Versatility

Next evolution of the crossover offers CUV attributes while maintaining a premium sedan feel and a sporty, bold appearance

09/01/2009 – TORRANCE, Calif. –┬áThe all-new 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour evolves the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) concept by integrating a sleek and aerodynamic shape that blends sporty, low-profile contours with versatile CUV functionality, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

“Our concept is to broaden the appeal of the Accord line-up by leveraging traditional Accord strengths of fun-to-drive performance and handling while also adapting to dramatic shifts in the light truck marketplace,” said Erik Berkman, vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “The Accord Crosstour accomplishes that by offering a modern interpretation of a CUV while integrating the refinement and efficiency of a premium sedan.”

Derived from the Accord Sedan, the Accord Crosstour maximizes car-like ride and refinement, yet maintains capabilities consistent with a CUV’s increased ride height and all-weather potential. The Accord Crosstour’s styling builds on the Accord’s familiar character lines and adds a bolder front grille complemented by a durable lower-body appearance, wedge-shaped C-pillars and an aggressive rear stance. The flowing roofline narrows smoothly into the rear of the vehicle to create an aggressive-looking design, which conceals a unique cargo area that can adapt to large objects that exceed the capacity of a sedan.

“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,” said Berkman. “This vehicle meets the needs of buyers looking for those attributes yet at the same time want an image that is different from a conventional SUV.”

The Accord Crosstour will be positioned at the top of the Accord family when it goes on sale in fall 2009. Additional details will be announced later in the year.
