The award-winning CR-V compact SUV will likely be the end of your search for a modern, stylish vehicle full of utility and the feature you desire. This impressive SUV leaves a minimal carbon footprint while offering a plethora of seating room and storage space compared to other vehicles in its class. With improvements for the 2017 model year, Honda has only added to the CR-V’s exorbitant utility, making it an even smarter choice for those who want versatility and luxury without sacrificing efficiency, safety, and reliability.
The CR-V gives off a dramatic silhouette that is certainly eye-catching. It includes LED running lamps on every 2017 trim. The rearmost roof pillar is swept up like the design of previous model years, however it is combined with new elements such as standard alloy wheels. These 17 inch wheels come standard on the base model, and 18 inch alloy wheels are available on higher trims. The highest Touring trim has unique wheel styling and details such as exhaust pipe finishers and chrome accents that make your 2017 CR-V stand out on the road and opt for the available hands-free power tailgate for convenience when accessing the spacious cargo area of the CR-V. The newly redesigned front fascia give the 2017 CR-V an even more athletic look, truly flaunting its agility, and the redesigned rear windows sport the CR-V’s strength. Honda has outdone themselves with all of these new features, plus an extra 1.5 inches of ground clearance! With style, power, and convenience, the 2017 CR-V springs even farther ahead of the competition than it was previously.
The interior of the 2017 CR-V is both functional and organized. The interior is one of the biggest selling points of the Honda CR-V, with plenty of room for five adults to be seated comfortably. Of course, all but the base LX trim also come with a 12-way power adjustable seat for the driver along with power lumbar support for comfort on the longest of drives and opting for the top-of-the-line Touring trim gives you a luxurious experience as well, complete with faux wood trim and leather seats. This latest version of the SUV has almost an extra foot of length in the cargo area without sacrificing passenger room. You can fold the split backrests in the CR-V with the pull of a lever to get a flat cargo area that easily fits a bicycle or other bulky objects up to five feet in length. There is a movable panel that you can use to create hidden storage underneath the floor to hide your valuables too. Even the passenger area is outfitted and ready to store items with a multi-configurable shelf underneath the armrest on the console. The 2017 CR-V’s intelligible design gives it practicality that feels like luxury.
The base Honda CR-V runs on a familiar 184-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, but the higher trims are powered by a new, 1.5-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that is making its first appearance under the CR-V. This engine provides the driver 190 horsepower and quicker acceleration to pair with the CR-V’s impeccable handling. The turbo engine also offers efficiency to save you at the pump with an estimated 34 mpg highway by the EPA. Both engines are paired with a CVT and let you choose from front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and thanks to updates to the all-wheel drive system, it can now send more power to your rear wheels when necessary making it perfect for snowy, slushy conditions or dirt roads.
It doesn’t take much to realize why the Honda CR-V is a favorite among drivers. The turbocharged engine provides the driver with plenty of pep while the cabin remains comfortable for even the tallest passengers. There is also plenty of cargo space for all of your luggage, even on your longer road trips which makes the CR-V a well-rounded and desirable vehicle overall.
