Honda Twitterstalker Confirms The 2010 Accord Crosstour Not-A-Wagon

From DT reader [and car-sharing Canadian] Cam:

This woman started following me on Twitter when I mentioned seeing an FCX Clarity test drive event at the convention centre down the street from us...

Sounds like the Crosstour is official... hoping it's a little more touring wagon-y than the Venza, but to be honest, I'm still headed for that Jetta (er, Golf? in Canada, apparently) Wagon TDI when I finally get tired of using car sharing.

Sweet. Of course, even though Jalopnik put it at the top of their "Crosstour! Confirmed!" post, this isn't it:


That's the European Accord Tourer, a straight-up wagon which is based on the Acura platform. Edmunds snapped some spy shots of the Crosstour testing in Nevada. Quick, don't think BMW X6 Venza Hyundai Genesis!

Nooooo!! Give us the Accord Tourer! With a rear-facing third-row! Please?

Why did they have to go full ugly? There has yet to be a palatable 4-door fastback on the market other than the now gone Mazda6 Sport. (Ok, I know they still have the 6 hatch in Europe but the new one looks like it swallowed a Lexus GS.)
