2017 CR-V Features a Bold and Sophisticated New Design
2017 Honda CR-V: Design Changes and New Features
Compact SUVs are booming in popularity these days, but a model that practically defined the segment two decades ago is the Honda CR-V. For the 2017 model-year, Honda gave the CR-V a complete overhaul, making it an even more appealing choice for compact SUV shoppers. Read about its design changes and new features.
2017 CR-V Exterior Design
Honda took the exterior styling of the 2017 CR-V in a more aggressive direction, with 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. Also, the long hood, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and dual exhausts give the new CR-V a more sophisticated and athletic look.
New Powertrain and Chassis in 2017 CR-V
The 2017 CR-V also offers the model’s first ever turbocharged engine, a more powerful 1.5-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder powerplant, delivering 190 horsepower (EX and higher). CR-V LX trims are powered by a 2.4-liter DOHC, direct-injected i-VTECÔ engine. Also, the 2017 CR-V’s all-new body and chassis design — with front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension — provides more agile and confident handling, greater refinement, additional ground clearance and superior overall versatility.
2017 CR-V Comfort, Convenience and Technology Features
Many new comfort and convenience features are available in the 2017 CR-V. This includes remote engine start, dual-zone climate control, heated side mirrors, heated front seats, an electric parking brake, rear USB charging ports, front passenger seat with 4-way power adjustment and driver’s seat with 8-way power adjustment and 4-way power lumbar support. The 2017 CR-V also comes well-equipped with advanced technology, including a color TFT driver information interface and 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio interface, delivering excellent in-vehicle connectivity and audio performance.
