New Honda Crosstour Facebook Ready for Fresh Assault

Yup, Honda’s a glutton for Facebook punishment. After pulling the previous page to remove literally hundreds of disses against HoMoCo’s new Crosstour, the brand’s webmasters have gone for the red, red whine. The new images on the new page show the red Crosstour featured on the company’s official website. Which seems to have changed precisely nothing about autoblogosphere’s opinion of the CUV’s ugly ass—I mean, “controversial” styling. “New pictures prove to be more horrible than the first,” Facebooker Lewis Desoto opines, re-opening the decidedly one-sided “debate” dogging the, uh, you know. Punctuation-challenged Terrence Lee says, “the new pictures just shows how uglier this car can get !” Ditto Honda’s ongoing PR debacle.

    I like Hondas and I have owned three, but that doesn't mean that they can build an ugly car and their loyal customers will just swallow it. Sometimes I have to wonder if Honda doesn't understand that?

    @michaelb1 : The fact is that the squareback wagon design is decades old. And fastbacks are so 2009? To be fair, it has a little bit of CRX in it's fastback. I don't think that's the problem. The main problems are: a) huge grille b) rides too high c) overstyled rear end (taillight shape, upkink behind the C-pillar...) Come on, Honda. Hondas are supposed to be -reasonably priced -fun to drive (good handling, perfect manual transmission) -technologically advanced -light This is just a tall-riding bloatmobile. Soichiro is rotating in his grave. Counter-clockwise.

    I think the Crosstour is decent looking, except those decidedly non-sporty wheels. If people will buy that uglified new Pilot, they'll buy the Crosstour.

    I have to wait until Robert Cumberford tells me how the SupposiTour looks.
