Honda has pulled the wraps off an all-new, 2017 Honda CR-V. The completely redesigned and reengineered 2017 CR-V, going on sale this winter, boasts bold new styling, a more premium interior, the model’s first-ever turbocharged engine and a host of new features and technologies aimed at maintaining CR-V’s status as the outright benchmark in the highly popular compact SUV segment.
“The new Honda CR-V raises the bar in every imaginable way, delivering more performance, space and premium content together with higher fuel economy ratings and value than ever before,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “Customers are going to love what they see and what they experience behind the wheel of this new CR-V.”
Bold and Sophisticated New Design
The new CR-V styling heads in a fresh new direction with an aggressive attitude, thanks to crisp and sharp front-end design elements, aggressive stylized headlights surrounded by a wing-shaped LED DRL array on all trims, and wide, muscular fenders. The long hood, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and dual exhausts give the new CR-V a more sophisticated and athletic presence.
Adding convenience is a Honda-first available Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate, which allows opening and closing the tailgate with a foot activated sensor under the rear of the vehicle.
New Powertrain and Chassis Technology
The 2017 CR-V in EX and higher trims will feature CR-V’s first ever turbocharged engine, a more powerful and fuel-efficient 1.5-liter, direct-injected and turbocharged 4-cylinder engine rated at 190 horsepower. Combined with the CR-V’s more aerodynamic body, the new turbocharged engine will garner the highest EPA fuel economy ratings in the compact SUV class.
More Premium, Spacious and Technologically Advanced Interior
The more spacious cabin, with top-in-class interior space and the best rear seat legroom in its class, features upgraded materials throughout, including a new soft-touch instrument panel and more intricately stitched seats.
Some of the key new comfort and convenience features available on the 2017 Honda CR-V include remote engine start, dual-zone climate controls, rear USB charging ports, heated front and rear outboard seats. The CR-V’s Display Audio system is compatible with the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ platforms.
Advanced Safety and Driver-Assistive Technology
The refreshed 2015 CR-V debuted the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. While the 2017 CR-V further expands the application of Honda Sensing as standard equipment on EX and higher trims.
