The 2014 Honda Crosstour vs. the 2014 Toyota Venza

2014 Honda CrosstourThe 2014 Honda Crosstour, a crossover vehicle modeled off of the popular Accord, is one of the most unique picks in its class. With the power and space of a crossover mixed with the handling of a car, it remains a popular pick for drivers around Raynham and Easton. It also delivers a full list of standard features, including a rear-view camera, Bluetooth handsfree calling, and more.

With a similar starting price to the Toyota Venza but offing better fuel economy and different options, the Honda Crosstour a great alternative for drivers looking for a wagon or SUV. We also like the Crosstour’s streamlined look, compared to the bulkier Venza body.

More “Go” With the Crosstour

With a similar sized engine to that of the Venza and a superior horsepower rating, the Crosstour averages an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. This is compared with the 20/26 mpg estimate on the Venza.* Both vehicles also have an identical towing capacity of 1000 lb, meaning that despite the Crosstour’s lower torque rating, there’s little that can limit your weekend adventuring.
