Honda has just released images of the new 2010 Accord Crosstour's interior and some details about a functional rear storage area.
Inside, the new crossover gets a familiar Accord-like look, but with a slightly thicker center console to give a more truck-like feel. As for the cargo area, it certainly looks massive (although no statistics on the exact cubic feet have been released). Underneath the cargo area floor is an 8-inch deep "Hidden Removable Utility Box." In addition, the Crosstour will get handy levers near the fender wells, allowing for the rear seatbacks to fold flat in a simple one-touch process.
"Honda has a longstanding reputation for maximizing interior space and utility in its vehicles," said Erik Berkman, vice president of corporate planning and logistics for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "Like the award-winning Honda Fit, the Accord Crosstour uses a versatile design to create an interior that functions with the practicality of a larger vehicle."
The Accord Crosstour will be offered exclusively with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which we suspect will have the same 268-hp and 248 ft-lb output as in the Accord. Both a front-drive and all-wheel drive model will be offered with sales starting in November.
