Honda Accord Crosstour makes hated debut
The all-new 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour made its first appearance in early official photos. Aimed at the U.S. market, it is a slightly-lifted crossover based on the Accord sedan, and will likely be offered with all-wheel-drive and a 3.5-litre V6 engine. But the bigger news is the amount of hate it is generating.
Attempting to capitalise on the Facebook craze, American Honda set up a “fan” page for the Crosstour on the social-networking site. Thousands of Honda fanboys signed up to the group, only to post hateful comments about how ugly the car is and how the company has deviated from its original goals. It makes for hilarious reading, and Honda employees have even been caught planting fake positive comments.
