Honda "Crosstour" Hatchback Hits Vegas, Baby

We were the first to reveal the expected name of the Toyota Venza-fighting 2010 Honda Crosstour, now Edmunds Straightline has new shots of the hatchbacked Honda on its way from Vegas to Death Valley.

We're assuming the Crosstour — or Crosshatch, Crosccord or whatever Honda ends up calling it — is out in the desert for some hot weather testing. We're also assuming its hitting the craps table for some ramblin', gamblin' action first. Also, wherever the Crosstour goes, we expect to see its expected platform-mate, the Acura ZDX to not be too far behind. We're assuming we'll have shots of its kissing-cousin later today.
