Say goodbye to the 2010/2011MY Accord Crosstour and hello to the 2012MY Crosstour as Honda decided to drop the Accord moniker from the name of its high-riding liftback for the new model year.

The name may be different but there aren't any significant changes besides some additional standard features and new color options over the previous model year version.

The Crosstour continues to be available in two trim levels, the base EX and the better-equipped EX-L.

For 2012, the EX gains auto on/off headlights, a rearview camera, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and USB audio interface as standard, while Honda also introduced two new colors to the range, theTwilight Blue Metallic that replaces the Glacier Blue Metallic, and Basque Red Pearl that replaces the Tango Red Pearl.

Despite earlier rumors stating the availability of a more affordable four-cylinder model, for now at least, the Crosstour will continue to be offered only with a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 producing 271 horsepower at 6,200 RPM and 254 lb-ft. of torque at 5,000 RPM.

According to the Japanese company, the front-wheel drive Crosstour returns an EPA-rated city/highway/combined fuel economy of 18/27/21 mpg, while the EX-L with Honda's Real Time 4WD system, 18/26/21 mpg respectively.

Prices for the 2012 Crosstour start from $30,340 not including an $810 destination fee.
