The CR-V has long taken first billing on the small SUV segment, and yet the brand created an all-new model for 2017, redesigned from the engine to the exterior. Take everything you already loved about the CR-V -- its surprising spaciousness, comfortable ride, plentiful storage areas, top safety ratings, and superior reliability -- and take on a few more attributes for the 2017 model year, including athleticism, thriftiness, and edginess. Now you have a top player in the crowded crossover segment that's sure to stand out in the SUV crowd.
What's new for the 2017 Honda CR-V?
Starting with the exterior, the 2017 CR-V introduces an overall more muscular appearance. Dual exhaust outlets accent the rear and give onlookers a pretty good indication of what's humming under the hood. Ground clearance grows to 8.2 inches, which is substantially more than you'll find with conventional compact crossovers. A longer, wider, and taller construction adds up to more legroom for rear passengers.
Performance is enhanced by a new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It's mated with a smooth-shifting continuously variable transmission that makes for a gentle and comfortable ride. The ride is further refined by retuned suspension and steering, all of which work together to make for a sportier CR-V.
Inside, the redesign carries into the center console, which boasts refreshed, upscale layout. Soft-touch materials abound, as do thoughtful storage compartments. New tech comes in the form of larger dashboard screens, as well as smartphone app integration, driver assistance technologies, a digital gauge cluster, and four USB ports for EX trims and higher.
