After 20 years, a good SUV deserves a good makeover. The folks at Honda seem to agree, as they've given us a seriously improved 2017 Honda CR-V.
Welcome to the 2017 Honda CR-V. It's pretty much new from the ground up, including new body styling, technology and drivetrain.
Gone is the somewhat staid exterior. Instead we get a polished new look with sculpted fenders and a more interesting rear fascia.
The 2017 model is available with 18-inch wheels wrapped in all-season rubber.
New for 2017 is a low-speed follow function, making it easier to drive in stop-and-go traffic.
Other driver-assist programs include lane-keep assist and blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert.
The CR-V comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all trim lines are available with all-wheel drive.
The LX trim of the CR-V gets the old 2.4-liter engine, but EX and above get their power from a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, good for 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque.
A longer wheelbase in the 2017 model means more room for rear passengers.
The interior of the CR-V gets loads of soft-touch materials.
With the rear seats folded down, the new CR-V gets 10 more inches of linear space, for a total of 75.8 cubic feet of space.
Rear seats up and there is room for five passengers and 39.2 cubic feet of space. The 2017 Honda CR-V will be available on December 21, 2016 and will start at $24,045 for the base LX.
