The 2012 Honda Crosstour hatchback is available in EX and EX-L trim levels.
The EX-L trim level adds 18-inch wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, driver seat memory functions, a cargo cover, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a hidden removable utility box and an upgraded sound system with satellite radio. The sole option for the EX-L is a voice-activated navigation system.
