2017 Honda Crosstour  sales

Crosstour model (initially, the Accord Crosstour), appearing in 2009, I was able to attract buyers to crossovers, Honda as the manufacturer claims. In 2010 the U.S. sold the Maximum number of Crosstour — 28 851. But then the figures fell and in March of 2015 amounted to 742 units. Let us add that the Honda Crosstour also assembled in China for the local market. About the prospects of this production company nothing is reported yet.

2017 Honda Crosstour rival goes down

In early March, Toyota announced that it is ending production of the model Venza at the factory in Kentucky (the only place for him).

“Interclass” Venza is a direct competitor to the Crosstour, a crossover or a all-terrain wagon, also fell short of expectations creators. Last year, the U.S. has sold less than 30 thousand (same as Camry per month on average), whereas in 2009 sold more than 54 thousand copies. And in January 2015 sales barely exceeded two thousand units. Release for the U.S. stopped in June of 2015, and Assembly for other markets will cease in 2017. And it seems that the second generation it will not be.

    I had this car in 2010 model and absolutely LOVED it!!! Unfortunately, it has now been totaled. As far as spacious, it has sooo much room and is a very nice car. All the features are great and it drove like a top of the line car. I’m disgusted that they are being discontinued after 2017, but plan to get me a new one in the upcoming year.

    I have a 2010 EXL AWD w/ nav. Took it off road on jeep trails. Hauled very large boxes and stacks of 2x4s. Love the 8″ ground clearance and 18″ wheels.. Very comfortable and fully supporting leather seats for long trips. Practically drives itself. Great on my steep snowy driveway. We are seniors 75+. Great senior car. It was panned by the blogs when I bought it and yet people come up to me in parking lots everywhere telling me how beautiful it is. My mobility limited wife and friends have no trouble getting in front and back seats while they have trouble getting into the back seat and even front seats of Volvo and Toyota. Drive up to the Symphony in style. —- Can’t believe the marketing people of Honda screwed this up so badly that it is being discontinued. I wanted my next car to be the same, but it seems this one may last forever. Just yesterday a couple of guys at the golf course walked across the lot and complimented me on the car. When i said it was 6 years old, they couldn’t believe it……Sad!

      I have the 2012 EX-L version of the Crosstour and couldn’t believe they were discontinuing it either. I get the same comments as you. But look what I found its in China…

        Love my 2013!!! Why is China continuing with it and the US isn’t?? I get som many compliments on my car!!

        • Camaro Limousines

          That may be Japan I think Honda is a Japanese car, but I know what you mean. Not sure if they are continuing but it sure looks like a new model to me. Trade shows often have concept cars. I think a better question at this point maybe can we buy a concept car?. Because I would surely but this one. Did you see those headlights?

    I have the 2014 Honda Crosstour and absolutely love this car. Have no idea why they are no longer making this model. When I wen into the dealership they had to find one for me because they couldn’t keep them on the lot. Once they got one it was sold within days. They should consider making one similar with minor changes. Love all the room at a great price and great Honda expectations.
