The new 2013 Crosstour Concept was unveiled today at the New York Auto Show, revealing an extremely modest update for the crossover’s new model year.

Honda says the exterior design is more aggressive on the front end, although it seems the same as the current model, with ‘cleaner’ front and rear fascias and finished sill plates, and a new rear-fender finish. The foglamps have been integrated, and the tailgate has been edited with more horizontal lines, also.

Two new exterior colors have been added, along with a fresh set of 19-inch wheels, while the production model is expected to feature 18-inch alloys.

The only place where a distinct change has been made is on the inside of the Crosstour concept, with an added 8-inch display, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters for the V6 model and keyless ignition. Some controls have also been rearranged as well, although the current layout seemed more appealing.

Power for the Crosstour has been upgraded with a 3.5-liter, 24-valve SOCH i-VTECH V6 engine, or the 2.4-liter i-VTECH four banger. Both engine options are mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control as standard equipment.

Safety additions for the 2013 Honda Crosstour include Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning, both making use of a windshield-mounted camera to alert the driver of any impending danger.

The Crosstour Concept is a bit disappointing. Considering Honda was unable to meet sales targets for the model and the Accord is getting an update, the automaker should have taken it a bit further, or waited to do so.
