TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The new four-cylinder, two-wheel-drive Honda Crosstour® is set to debut at U.S. dealers nationwide today with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) ranging from $27,655 for the well-equipped Crosstour EX to $32,805 for the luxurious Crosstour EX-L Navi, plus a destination and handling charge of $810(1) per vehicle.
The four-cylinder Crosstour models join the current 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 Crosstour models already available. In addition to bringing additional value to the Crosstour line, the new four-cylinder model delivers EPA-estimated fuel economy(2) that increases 3 mpg in the city and 2 mpg on the highway compared to V6-equipped models.
"The new four-cylinder Crosstour offers sleek design, unmatched passenger comfort and ingenious functionality now with four-cylinder pricing and fuel economy," said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "With four-cylinder and V6 options and a long list of standard features, Crosstour should be on every CUV buyer's shopping list."
Equipped with a 2.4-liter i-VTEC inline four-cylinder engine producing 192 horsepower, the newest Crosstour is available in two trim levels, including the Crosstour EX and leather-upholstered Crosstour EX-L. A Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System(3) is available on the Crosstour EX-L.
EPA-estimated fuel economy on the four-cylinder Crosstour is 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway, a significant increase from the 271-horsepower 2WD V6 model's EPA estimated 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
With the launch of the new four-cylinder Crosstour, several useful features are now standard across the entire Crosstour family, which first debuted for the 2010 model year with V6 power. Standard features now include an automatic dimming rearview mirror, a rearview mirror back-up camera display for improved rear visibility (non-Navigation models), convenient auto-on/off headlights, Bluetooth®(4) HandsFreeLink® and USB audio interface.
