2013 Honda CrosstourThe 2013 Honda Crosstour is an exceptionally versatile vehicle, offering the confident handling of a sedan but with cargo room to spare. If you look at it another way, you get the awesome functionality of an SUV with the great gas mileage of a sedan. It’s really a win-win kind of situation for just about any Frankfort driver. The Subaru Outback boasts a similar body style, but at Community Honda of Orland Park, we think that the Crosstour is still a better choice for most drivers. You be the judge: here’s how these two vehicles stack up.

Powertrain Choices

Both of these cars can come with either all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, and both can come with either a four-cylinder or a six-cylinder engine. The thing is, that In whatever configuration you choose, the 2013 Honda Crosstour will offer you more power and better gas mileage:

  • The base engine in the Honda is a 2.4L four-cylinder good for 192 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. The base engine in the Subaru is a 173-hp four-cylinder. The 2013 Crosstour EX 2WD will get a very impressive 31 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg on the city.* The 2013 Outback 2.5l only gets a 28 mpg highway and 21 mpg city.
  • The 2013 Honda Crosstour can be equipped with a 3.5L V6 good for 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. This engine, even with four-wheel drive, is still good for 28 mpg on the highway.* The Subaru can come with a 3.6L six-cylinder that makes 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque and is only estimated at 25 mpg on the highway.
