2017 Honda CR-V
The CR-V has been an integral part of Honda’s lineup since it was introduced back in 1995. With four solid generations under its belt, the CR-V was up for a redesign for the 2017 model year. The popular compact crossover has been a favorite in the segment from the moment it was released, and continues to be a worthy contender in the competitive automotive segment. The newest iteration of the crossover also happens to be the start of its fifth generation. Unveiled for the first time in Detroit in December of 2016, the 2017 CR-V went on sale in the United States in late December of the same year. The 2017 Honda CR-V is unlike anything we have seen from this particular nameplate in the past 22 years, and we are exceptionally proud to offer it at the Rolling Hills Honda dealership here in Missouri. Before you head in and take it for a test drive, take a moment to explore a few of the many areas in which the compact crossover SUV was updated and enhanced for 2017.
For the first time ever, all CR-V models – EX and higher – will receive Honda Sensing standard. The advanced safety suite is the most intuitive all-inclusive package of active and passive safety features available from Honda. Complete with features like Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, and a Road Departure Mitigation System, there is no better way to ensure your safety behind the wheel than with Honda Sensing.
Available as an add-on to the entry-level LX model, Honda Sensing comes standard on all other trim levels of the 2017 CR-V. No other compact crossover is able to boast such an impressively equipped advanced safety suite, providing one more compelling reason why the 2017 Honda CR-V is the best option for drivers looking for a capable crossover.
Power and Performance
The CR-V may not be the most powerful SUV on the road, but it certainly isn’t the least powerful crossover, either. The standard engine offering on the 2017 Honda CR-V is a 2.4-liter I4 engine with a horsepower rating of 184 and a respectable 180 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired with a standard automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, 2017 CR-V models equipped with this base engine manage up to 26 miles per gallon in the city, and 32 miles per gallon on the highway. The EX trim level offers a 1.5-liter I4 turbocharged engine capable of producing 190 horsepower, and 179 lb.-ft. of torque. Available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, 2017 CR-V models equipped with this engine grab up to 34 miles per gallon on the highway, and 28 in the city.
For drivers who need their crossover to tow toys to the cabin for a weekend getaway, the 2017 CR-V is able to trailer up to 1,500 pounds with ease.
Regardless of how you plan to use your 2017 Honda CR-V, whether for recreational weekend fun, or everyday practicality – there is a powertrain available to perfectly suit your individual needs and requirements.
Comfort and Convenience
Honda did not leave anything out in terms of comfort and convenience amenities on the 2017 CR-V. Boasting plenty of high-end luxury options for drivers who want to make the most out of their crossover, the new CR-V still manages to deliver an impressive amount of standard features for drivers who enjoy the simpler things in life. The top-tier interior of the 2017 CR-V features high-end premium materials, innovative technologies, and faux wood grain trim for a high-end feel. Drivers will appreciate the 12-way power adjustable seat with four-way power lumbar support and memory function, ensuring the perfect level of comfort and support every single time they slip behind the wheel. Front seat passengers will also find comfort in the fact that their available four-way power adjustable seat is able to keep them comfortable while sitting shot-gun. Both driver and passenger will appreciate the quick heating front seats, which rapidly increase to the desired level of warmth during those colder winter months. The newest CR-V also offers drivers an available dual-zone automatic climate control system, which seamlessly transforms the cabin to a comfortable temperature that can easily be adjusted according to the needs of each passenger.
In its 22 years on the market, the CR-V has managed to evolve and transform to meet the growing needs of drivers in this highly competitive segment. Honda has delivered excellent examples year after year, and the 2017 CR-V is no exception. Equipped with over 50 advanced technology features, CR-V buyers can fine tune their crossover to deliver the exact level of connectivity they desire. Full LED headlights, a multi-angle rearview camera, Smart Entry key, blind spot information system, and rain-sensing windshield wipers are just the beginning of all that this crossover has to offer in 2017. Each technology feature has been expertly designed to enhance the experience of the person behind the wheel, and the passengers along for the ride.
The Honda CR-V was completely redesigned from the ground up for 2017. Kicking off its fifth generation in utmost style and class, the newest iteration of the CR-V is arguably the biggest head-turner in the crowded crossover SUV segment. Despite a complete exterior reworking, the 2017 CR-V is still easily recognizable as the favorite compact crossover it always has been. Sculpted side panels give way to flared fender arches and a revised front fascia and rear bumper. One of the most aesthetically pleasing changes made to the exterior of the CR-V also happens to be one of the most functional. The new Active Shutter Grille seamlessly blends in with the redesigned front fascia on the 2017 CR-V, and works hard to increase aerodynamics and fuel economy at the same time. 18-inch aluminum wheels come standard on this year’s CR-V, with a geometric design that is both modern and captivating.
The interior of the CR-V is designed around the comfort and convenience of both the driver and passengers. The overall design of the cabin remains similar to the outgoing model year, but offers upgraded features and materials that are more refined in nature. Offering an impressive 39.2 cubic-feet of rear cargo capacity, and an available 75 cubic-feet of cargo capacity with the second-row seats folded down, the 2017 CR-V has plenty of room for whatever you need to bring along for the ride. With ample room for up to five passengers at a time, the 2017 CR-V offers the perfect amount of interior space without overdoing it.
