First spyshots of Honda CrossTour appear on VW enthusiast site

 Source: VWVortex Member Michael J Balisky
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


VWVortex Member Michael J Balisky was vacationing in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park when he spotted this posse of Crosstours getting their test on. I guess this sighting lends a lot of credence to the October 26, 2009 onsale date rumors that were just posted. Mr Balisky does not list an e-mail address in his profile so we were unable to contact him.

Here is a lnk to the thread at VWVortex: name the car (spy pics)

UPDATE: We've just received word from an (unrelated) source that confirms the rumor that the CrossTour will *NOT* share the ZDX's platform architecture. More on that later.
