2017 Honda CR-V: The Best Yet!
The Honda CR-V is Honda’s second-best selling model and flag-runner in the very competitive crossover segment. Striking the perfect balance between comfort and utility, the CR-V has always remained very popular with Honda customers.
The all-new and completely redesigned 2017 Honda CR-V is set to launch this winter. Featuring a new turbocharged engine for the first time, the 1.5-liter four cylinder is expected to be rated at 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet.
“This new CR-V raises the bar in every imaginable way, delivering more performance, space and greater content,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda division.
Longer and Stronger
The new 2017 CR-V will ride on a new platform derived from the Civic. It’s 1.2 inches longer, with a 1.6-inch gain between the wheels. Not to mention that its also 1.4 inches taller and wider. Ultimately, this means that drivers and passengers will experience a roomier cabin, and handle a cargo volume of up to 39.2 cu ft.
New Updated Exterior
Outside, the CR-V still looks like your typical CR-V. The fenders are more flared, as well as an extended hood. Drivers will be equipped with LED daytime running lights across every model, and LED headlights are offered on the upper trim levels.
Shoppers will be pleased by the available hands-free power tailgate, that is activated with a kicking motion.
More Spacious Interior
The 2017 CR-V also raises the bar in terms of the interior. The more spacious cabin features top-in class interior space and the best rear seat legroom in its class.
The CR-V also offers the latest in-vehicle connectivity and audio performance. Available features include a 7-inch touchscreen that is compatible with Android & Apple devices to give customers seamless integration of key smartphone functions. The new CR-V will also feature a physical volume knob.
Advanced Safety and Driver-Assistive Technology
The new CR-V further expands on the application of Honda Sensing as standard equipment on the EX model and higher trims.
Honda Sensing includes Collision Mitigation Braking (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and pedestrian sensing capability. Honda Sensing also includes a number of other advanced safety features, including blind-spot information, rear cross-traffic monitoring, and auto high-beam headlights.
