Read on to see why we’re anxiously awaiting the 2017 Honda CR-V release date!
Exterior – Bold New Design:
More than a redesign, this is a reinvention. Crisp, pronounced lines wrap themselves around the longer hood and wider wheelbase. The A Pillars have been narrowed for greater visibility, and a Honda-first Active Shutter Grille reduces aerodynamic resistance. Upgraded aluminum wheels (17” or 18” depending on trim level), wide muscular fenders and a dual-exhaust add to the aggressive stance. Brilliant LED daytime running lights surround the boldly styled headlights, while sleek taillights beautifully accentuate the rear fascia. A host of Genuine Honda Accessories such as chrome garnishes, rain-sensing windshield wipers and roof rails will also be available to further enhance the beauty and functionality of this spectacular new CR-V.
Interior, Features and Safety.
The 2017 Honda CR-V interior welcomes its driver with a larger cabin, gorgeous intricately stitched seating and a handsome soft-touch instrumentation panel. With a purported 2” of extra legroom, the new CR-V will offer top-in-class interior space with comfortable seating for up to 5 adults.
A brilliant color thin film transistor (TFT) driver information interface (DII) center meter display adds even more visual interest. The Display Audio system allows seamless integration with your favorite smartphone features (like navigation), thanks to its compatibility with the available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ platforms. (The return of the “Physical Volume Knob” on the audio system is also a big plus). A multitude of exciting features available on the new CR-V include a driver’s seat with 8-way power adjustment and 4-way lumbar support, front passenger seat with 4-way power adjustment, rear cabin ISB ports, an electronic parking brake, dual-zone climate control, heated side mirrors, and remote engine start.
The 2017 Honda CR-V aspires to attaining the highest safely ratings, and we’re confident it will achieve its goal. The award-winning Honda Sensing™ Suite of technologies (which includes Collision Mitigation Braking (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and pedestrian sensing capability, Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow and Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS). Additional new driver-assistive technologies include the available Blind Spot Information (BSI), Rear Cross Traffic Monitor (CTM) and Auto High Beam (HSS) headlights) will be standard on EX and higher trim levels. These innovations help drivers avoid a collision, while next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure (standard on all CR-V trim levels) will help ensure they remain safe should a collision occur.
The 2017 CR-V lineup will feature its first-ever turbo-charged engine (EX, EX-L and Touring trims). This direct-inject 4-cylinder 1.5 liter powerhouse will deliver an astounding 190 hp with 179 lb-ft of torque. It will also an deliver an exceptionally responsive and spirited driving experience. The LX features a naturally aspirated i-VTECÔ 4-cylinder 2.4-liter engine that generates 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. All trim levels will offer smooth shifting thanks to the CVT Grade Logic Control. These newly designed engines combined with improved aerodynamics will make the new CR-V one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the compact SUV-Class. (Perhaps THE most fuel efficient, but final stats are yet to be released).
The completely redesigned body and chassis configuration have added ground clearance and enhanced handling. Nimble turning and smoother cornering are achieved via the front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension.
