Fully refreshed appearance of a 2016 Honda Crosstour has been officially confirmed and from these reports we can conclude that, this brand new variant will get a few technological and construction upgrades, starting from its general appearance, over its driving dynamics and performances to its overall design.
With all these improvements, refreshment as well as upgrades the folks from this Japanese car maker are hoping that it will have as a direct result, boost in general sales.
Interior, Exterior and Appearance of new Honda Crosstour
In general, fully refreshed Honda Crosstour will remain able to accommodate up to five-passenger to sit upright quite comfortably, with having plenty of both- the head and legroom. The main cabin is going to stay masterfully, pretty imaginatively crafted and made of top quality materials, only. Certain upgrades, regarding safety features, are expected to be: stability assist, threshold airbags, side curtain airbags, antilock brakes and a brand new feature- the anti-lock brake system.
When it comes to newly implemented hi-technology features, one of the most striking ones is, definitively, the following ones: wheel mounted controls, USB connection coupled with the Bluetooth pairing, USB interface, a dual-zone automatic climate control and auto dimming rearview mirror.
