Honda will show off a concept version of their next generation Crosstour, and since we all know that “concept” is just “thinly disguised production car” in Honda vernacular, we’ll be getting a good look at the replacement for one of the most maligned cars of the last decade. Coverage of the New York Auto Show will start here at TTAC on April 4th.

I just don't understand a gas-hog, fat version of an Accord. If I want a Honda to haul stuff, I'll buy a CR-V or if larger, a Pilot. A Crosstour? I think an Aztek is more practical.
Honda pretty much covered all the bases by making the "wagon" version of the Accord less appealing by giving it gawdawful styling and choosing form over function and killing its cargo capacity. Add a thirsty V6, fuel sapping 4WD, and ridiculous sticker price and you wonder why anyone would buy one of these when the 4 cyl Legacy Outback wagon is roomier and much cheaper. I don't know what the competition of this car is, maybe it's the "active lifestyle middle aged empty nester" Venza Camry wagonoid failure--but even then the terrible Venza comes off as slightly more appealing. This car is a brilliant example of what happens when a car company makes every attempt to make a wagon not a wagon, and why I wouldn't even consider a trip down the road from the Subaru dealer to look at the Honda.
Well this should be interesting. Or not.
Is that grille a rip-off of the current VW family design? Or did the Germs copycat the Honda?
