The Honda Crosstour is classed as a mid-size SUV like the Pilot but smaller, offering just two rows of seating and about 50 cu-ft. less space than a same-year Pilot. As part of the 2013 model year refresh, Honda boosted the power coming from the available 3.5L EarthDream V6 engine while improving its fuel efficiency.

The former draws power from the 2.9L V6 mill and an electric motor for the net output of some 460 horsepower.
