October 31 2016
Forget everything you know about the Honda CR-V. For 2017, Honda introduces a new CR-V, and it has even more features to offer consumers.
The 2017 CR-V keeps all the characteristics that made the previous model one of the most popular compact SUVs in Canada, but improves in plenty of areas in order to make this fifth generation even more appealing.
Completely redesigned inside and out, the 2017 Honda CR-V (LINK EXTERNAL: http://www.honda.ca/future-vehicles/crv) stands out with a design that is more modern and refined. We immediately notice its more aggressive headlights wrapped in distinctive winged LEDs, a new front grille with active shutters to improve aerodynamics and fuel consumption, dual exhaust tips, a shorter rear overhang combined with a longer wheelbase, and longer hood.
A turbocharged engine for the 2017 Honda CR-V
For 2017, Honda decided to innovate by offering for the first time a 1.5L four-cylinder turbocharged engine under the hood of its CR-V.
The official fuel consumption figures have not yet been disclosed, but Honda promises that the new engine, combined with an automatic CVT transmission, will offer the best fuel consumption rating in its category.
Delivering 190 horsepower, this turbocharged engine is based on the one found in the Civic, and should provide the CR-V with impressive torque and performance.
In addition to the new turbo engine, the 2017 Honda CR-V will come standard with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that is offered on the current CR-V. It develops 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque and is also combined with a continuously variable automatic transmission.
More safety in the 2017 Honda CR-V with standard Honda Sensing
At Honda, safety is always the priority. That has never been as evident as with the new 2017 Honda CR-V which gets the complete suite of Honda Sensing active safety technologies as a standard feature. That’s right, the new CR-V gets all of Honda’s most advanced active safety features at no extra price.
Honda Sensing includes a lane departure mitigation system along with lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. The 2017 Honda CR-V also features forward collision warning that will emit an audible warning if a danger is detected in front of the new CR-V. And if no action is taken by the driver to avoid a collision, the 2017 Honda CR-V will apply the brakes for you.
The 2017 Honda CR-V has also been rated Top Safety Pick +, the highest distinction awarded by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The 2017 Honda CR-V will arrive at Portland Street Honda this winter. Visit us today to learn more about Honda’s newest compact SUV.
