2013 Honda Crosstour Concept Shows up with a Fresh Face at the New York Auto Show

If you were looking for Honda to present a brand-new Crosstour model at the New York Auto Show, you lucked out.

What Honda brought to the Big Apple is essentially a subtly refreshed version of the current Crosstour, which launched in the market in December of 2009 amidst snarky criticism about its looks.

Most changes can be found up front where the Crosstour gets a new chrome grille that's pushed back along with a more rugged-looking bumper with pronounced fog lamp housings and a protective plate.

At the back, even though you may not notice it, Honda says there's a revised tailgate that sports "a more horizontal design to add visual width to the sculpted lines at the rear", while the bumper has also been redesigned and features the same black moldings as the front bumper.

The new contrasting moldings on the doors and the redesigned alloy wheels complete the exterior revisions for the 2013 model.
