The Toyota Venza-challenging vehicle we've seen teased will — as we were first to report from trademark filings — officially be called the 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour and go on sale this fall. Remember, it's a CUV, not a wagon.
Details are scarce in the Honda press missive, but the spy photos we've seen show something that could be based on the actual Accord platform, or on something like the current Acura TSX/European Honda Accord Tourer (pictured). We'll find out what is actually going on under there shortly according to Honda:
