At first glance, it’s hard to understand why Honda had created the Crosstour. However, when you look at the market, there are families that need a car bigger than an Accord or Camry but not as big (and expensive at the gas pump) as an SUV. For this reason, the Crosstour was born, a fair-sized, fuel efficient crossover that offers the best of both worlds. At first, the car didn’t compete well with vehicles such as the Toyota Venza. However, with its constant improvements and meaner, rugged, beefier looks, the 2014 Honda Crosstour is now ready to take on some serious business.

When you look under the hood of the 2014 Honda Crosstour, you’ll see that the car is powered by Honda’s new Earth Dreams 3.5-litre six-cylinder engine, rated at 278-horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. Honda was worked very hard to get their Earth Dreams engine right, with Variable Valve Timing and the cylinder management system married together, which helps to save on fuel economy.

With the six-cylinder engine, you’re looking at fuel efficiency ratings of 11.8 L/100km city driving and 8.11 L/100km on the highway. The 2014 Crosstour is also available with a four-cylinder engine, which returns 192-horsepower and receives fuel efficiency ratings of 10.7 L/100km city driving and 7.59 L/100km.

The 2014 Honda Crosstour is available in five different trim levels that are sure to suit almost anyone’s needs. They have everything from basic cloth level seats all the way up to fine leather. You can also get a sunroof, all-wheel-drive or front-wheel-drive, or even the Premium package which gets you the V6 engine and the all-wheel-drive system which is a lot of fun to take off of the road.

In the back of the 2014 Honda Crosstour, you get a massive amount of cargo area. There is also a hidden storage compartment that is relatively large and can fit a family’s picnic for an entire day. A nice feature Honda put into the trunk is the ability to flip over the panels so that instead of having the carpeted side up, you can switch it to an all-plastic surface. That way, if you need to throw any muddy equipment back there or you want to take your dog with you, you won’t be stuck vacuuming and scrubbing the dirt out of the carpet material. There’s also a really neat handle at the back of the car that drop down the second seat when you’re loading things into the trunk and forgot to put down the second row.

When you get inside the 2014 Honda Crosstour, you’ll see that the ride is pleasant and smooth. The car definitely handles like a Honda, able to take on sharp corners and turns with ease  and gets through some mild off-roading with minimal effort. The interior of the vehicle is beautifully designed with a really nice navigation screen available as an upgrade.

The 2014 Honda Crosstour is a wonderful vehicle for any family or couple that is really on the go. It’ll make sure to get you and your loved ones to the trails and back.

Power and Performance:

The 2014 Honda Crosstour offers a choice of two engines. One is a 2.4-litre four-cylinder that produces 192 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. The other is a 3.5-litre V6 engine rated at 278 hp and 252 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard with the four-cylinder, while a six-speed automatic comes with the V6. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive available on the EX-L V6.

When it comes to driving dynamics, the 2014 Honda Crosstour shares some of the Accord's classic strengths: It has accurate steering and surefooted handling for a tall, family-themed hatchback. Still, with its extra weight and higher center of gravity, the Crosstour is decidedly less sporting than the Accord sedan. We've yet to test the Crosstour with the four-cylinder engine, but performance with the V6 is more than adequate. On the highway, the Crosstour performs admirably, providing a comfortable ride and a quiet cabin at speed.

Interiors and Special Features:

Inside, the 2014 Honda Crosstour is nearly identical to the 8th-generation Accord sedan on which it is based. The dash layout is ergonomically smart and constructed with high-quality materials. The center stack features an attractive, high-tech appearance thanks in part to a pair of optional LCD screens. In terms of storage, behind the 60/40-split rear seat is a 25.7-cubic-foot cargo area with reversible floor panels, which come in handy when dealing with messy items. With the rear seats folded flat, the Crosstour offers 51.3-cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity, though most wagons and SUVs can accommodate considerably more.

For about the same amount of money, the Honda Crosstour offers a far more extensive list of standard equipment than the Ford Edge or the Toyota Venza. In base form, the Crosstour includes auto on/off headlights, a backup camera with on-screen guidelines, a 10-way power driver's seat, a power moonroof, and a 7-speaker sound system with Bluetooth phone connectivity and a USB port. With regards to safety, all 2014 Honda Crosstours feature six airbags, the latest electronic stability aids, and active headrests designed to minimize whiplash-related injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Apart from navigation and all-wheel drive, optional features for the 2014 Honda Crosstour are tied to trim level. Regardless of engine choice, every EX-L model includes forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery with heated front seats, and touch-screen audio with Pandora Internet radio and hands-free text messaging functionality. On a sour note, only EX-L models offer the basic Bluetooth profile that enables you to wirelessly stream music from your MP3 player or mobile phone to the vehicle. To put that into perspective, the vast majority of modern compact cars include Bluetooth audio streaming as standard fare.

Safety features:

Standard safety features for all 2014 Honda Crosstours include active front-seat head restraints, antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags and side curtain airbags. All Crosstours also have a rearview camera, while the EX V6 and all EX-L models have a very useful passenger-side blind spot monitor (that displays camera images inside the car). The EX-L models also come with frontal collision warning and lane departure warning systems.

In Edmunds brake testing, the Crosstour V6 stopped from 60 mph in 131 feet, a slightly longer than average distance for this class of vehicle.

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety gave the Crosstour the best possible rating of "Good" for moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength crash protection. The Crosstour also earned a "Good" rating for its head restraints/seats for whiplash protection in rear impacts.
