The 2013 Honda Crosstour vs. The 2013 Toyota Venza

2013 Honda CrosstourWhen you’re in the market for a crossover SUV near Mechanicstown, you have quite a few vehicles to choose from, but you should be sure to put the 2013 Honda Crosstour at the top of your list. Built off the Honda Accord, the Crosstour has come into its own as a versatile crossover that makes a great fit for drivers searching for a family vehicle.

As we said, though, the crossover market grows year after year, and the competition is starting to get a bit stiff. Let’s see how the Crosstour stacks up against the 2013 Toyota Venza.

Choose Honda for Crossover Excellence

Honda already has a huge advantage in their corner: they created the crossover. The popular CR-V birthed this segment in the auto market, and other manufacturers have yet to be able to make a noticeable splash among Honda’s crossover dominance.

That’s a dominance that continues with Honda’s new crossover as well. Not only is the Honda vehicle less expensive, with the 2WD EX starting with a MSRP of  $27,230* to the Toyota’s $27,700, but it also sports a more powerful engine, capable of 192 hp to the Venza’s 181 hp.

Those might be small differences at first, but they are indicative of overall superior Honda engineering, as, despite offering more power, the 2013 Honda Crosstour 2WD EX with automatic transmission has a superior fuel economy too, getting an EPA-estimated 31 highway mpg** to the 26 mpg of the Venza.

So, the Crosstour is less expensive, more powerful, and more fuel efficient — what else is there?

Honda makes a rear parking aid a standard feature, increasing the safety of both the vehicle and its occupants when parking or backing up. Once you add in standard features like Honda’s power moonroof and theft deterrent system, it becomes pretty clear who the victor is.
