It’s official, Honda will debut the 2010 Accord Crosstour on September 1st and it will have… wheels and… tires. OK, so Honda’s teaser image isn’t much to go on, but knowing these sorts of manufacturer images, it was either this or some abstract of a headlight or door crease.

Besides, spy photos of the upcoming crossover have already given us a good idea of what it will look like.

While Honda has yet to confirm any details, it is expected that the Crosstour will be offered exclusively with the Accord’s 3.5-liter V6 engine and a choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Pricing is expected to be slightly more than the Accord sedan, starting at around the $30,000 mark ($35,000 CDN).

The only details that have leaked out about the crossover so far are that it is reportedly 2.5-inches taller than the Accord Sedan, while measuring 7-inches longer than its main rival, the Toyota Venza.

As the name suggests, it will be part crossover and part “tourer,” which, in Europe, means wagon. That being said, it will also be an ideal competitor to vehicles like the Subaru Outback.
