With nearly 4 million CR-Vs sold in the United States, the Honda CR-V is America’s best-selling SUV over the past 20 years. The fifth generation of the model, now on sale at Hall Honda, has been redefined from the ground up to deliver an experience that’s at once familiar and like nothing you’ve ever driven before.
Bold new styling
The 2017 Honda CR-V is redesigned with a crisper, sharper front end; aggressively stylized headlights; and wide, muscular fenders so you’ll stand out in a sea of unoriginal design. Its more sophisticated, athletic presence is the result of a longer hood, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and new dual exhaust outlets that are both eye-catching and enhance the vehicle’s sporty undercurrent. This wider stance and longer wheelbase greatly benefit the interior space with an increase in both total interior volume and rear seat legroom. The new one-motion dive-down 60/40 split rear seat makes converting from passenger to cargo hauling easier than ever, and the available power tailgate with hands-free operation is another great addition.
CR-V’s first-ever turbocharged engine
In EX and higher trims, the 2017 Honda CR-V is powered by a 1.5 liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine with dual-valve timing control for considerably refined and responsive performance. CR-V models equipped with this new turbocharged powerplant received the highest EPA fuel economy ratings in the compact SUV class (non-hybrid). The all-new body and chassis also provide more agile handling, improved ground clearance, and better overall versatility.
Technologically advanced interior
The new Honda CR-V boasts the very latest in-vehicle connectivity and audio performance. This includes available 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio interface with Android operating system plus an available new Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation SystemTM developed with Garmin®. The new CR-V’s Display Audio system is compatible with Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM for seamless integration of key smartphone features and functions—including smartphone-powered GPS navigation and voice-controlled search capability.
Available comfort and convenience features include remote engine start, dual-zone climate controls, heated side mirrors, dual rear USB charging ports, and an 8-way power driver seat with 4-way power lumbar support.
Top safety performance
The application of the Honda SensingTM suite of advanced safety and driver-assist technologies is expanded in the 2017 Honda CR-V. Standard on EX and higher trim levels are Road Departure Mitigation and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow. Other driver assist features include Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, Blind Spot Information System, Auto High-Beam and all-new Driver Attention Monitor.
