Here are even more reasons to choose one of America’s best selling compact SUVs! The latest 2017 Honda CR-V upgrades are in a class by themselves. The latest CR-V has a more powerful engine, best-in-class fuel efficiency, and powerfully enhanced safety features. What are you waiting for?

Pumping Powertrain

For the first time ever, the CR-V EX and higher trims offer a turbocharged engine that isn’t just more powerful, it’s also highly efficient. It’s a 1.5L DOHC, direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 190 hp, and the resulting performance is dynamic and responsive. This lethal combo is expected to achieve the highest EPA fuel economy ratings in the compact SUV class, and detailed specs will be available closer to its launch date.

Bold and Better, Inside and Out

The new CR-V’s interior is bursting with upgraded amenities, many not typically seen in compact SUVs. The roomy cabin’s interior space is at the top of its class, and it has the most ample rear seat legroom in its class. Upgraded materials include a soft-touch instrument panel and more sophisticated seat stitching. An available seven-inch Display Audio Android interface and new Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ means that the CR-V ‘s Display Audio system is now compatible with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, allowing you to bring the smartphone features you use most right into the CR-V, including GPS navigation from your smartphone and voice-recognized searching capabilities.

The new CR-V exterior is more athletic and aggressive, lending it a more modern sophistication. Front-end design elements have been sharpened, and headlights are more stylized with the addition of a LED DRL array with a wing-like shape, plus wider, aggressive fenders. The overall shape is more aerodynamic, which contributes to the improved fuel economy. This model also offers an available Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate with a foot-activated sensor.

New Protection Technologies

Safety upgrades to the 2017 CR-V expand the use of Honda Sensing technology, which comes standard on EX and higher trims. This powerful suite of safety intelligence is designed to monitor your surroundings and take protective action for you. Honda Sensing looks out for things like potential rear-ending situations, pedestrians in your blind spot, drifting out of your lane, and more. It includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking with Forward Collision Warning and pedestrian sensing capability
  • Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with low-speed follow and Lane Keeping Assist
