...Hits Showrooms with Premium Design, Big Versatility and Fun-to-Drive Persona





    "Class above" design quality, premium features and performance levels


    CR-V is named one of Car and Driver's 10Best Trucks & SUVs for 2017





The all-new, completely redesigned and reengineered 2017 Honda CR-V, the fifth generation of America's best-selling SUV, goes on sale today with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)1 starting at $24,045.


Packed with segment-busting quality, features and performance, the 2017  CR-V was recently chosen as one of Car and Driver magazine's 10Best Trucks and SUVs for 2017.



The 2017 CR-V boasts bold and sophisticated new styling, a more spacious, versatile and premium-quality interior, the model's first-ever available turbocharged engine, and a host of new features and technologies for improved connectivity, comfort and convenience.



Based on an all-new platform architecture, the new CR-V also targets the highest levels of quality and driving refinement in its class, including top-in-class cabin quietness, steering precision, ride comfort and body control—all designed to imbue the CR-V with a polished, fun-to-drive persona.



The top-selling EX trim includes the new 1.5-liter, 190 horsepower turbocharged engine, boasting exceptional performance and receiving best-in-class EPA fuel economy ratings of 28/34/30 mpg2 city/highway/combined, along with a comprehensive selection of premium features.



 EX trim also brings standard the Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, 18-inch alloy wheels (+1 in.), auto headlights, heated side mirrors, push-button start and dual-zone climate control.



Honda customers have purchased nearly 4 million CR-Vs in the U.S., making it the best-selling SUV in America over the past 20 years. More than 2 million CR-Vs have been built in North America.



All new CR-Vs for North America will be manufactured at Honda plants in East Liberty, Ohio; Greensburg, Indiana; and Alliston, Ontario, Canada, using local and globally sourced parts. To view, build and price the 2017 Honda CR-V visit automobiles.honda.com/cr-v.






Extended Safety Features with Top Safety Performance




The 2017 CR-V expands the application of the Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, now offered as standard equipment on EX and higher trims, and includes for the first time on CR-V both Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF).



Additional new available driver-assistive features include Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, blind spot information System (BSI), Auto High-Beam (AHB) and all-new Driver Attention Monitor.



Utilizing Honda's next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, the 2017 CR-V targets the highest available collision safety ratings, including an NCAP 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA and a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS including a SUPERIOR rating for frontal crash prevention when equipped with Honda Sensing.




New Exterior Design and Vehicle Packaging


The new CR-V styling heads in a fresh new direction with an aggressive attitude, thanks to crisper and sharper front-end design elements, aggressive stylized headlights surrounded by a wing-shaped LED DRL array on all models, and wide, muscular fenders.



The long hood, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and new dual exhaust outlets give the 2017 CR-V a more sophisticated and athletic presence.



The CR-V's new windswept front end appearance includes signature Honda LED headlights (Touring trim), a Honda-first Active Shutter Grille system that lowers aerodynamic drag, uprated aluminum alloy wheel sizes to 17 or 18 inches on all trims, narrower A-pillars for improved visibility, and sporty dual exhaust.



Adding convenience is a Honda-first available Hands Free Access Power Tailgate, which allows opening and closing the tailgate simply by kicking a foot to activate a sensor under the rear of the vehicle.




The new exterior design is complimented by the new CR-V platform's best-in-class space-efficiency. Its wider stance and longer wheelbase significantly benefit interior space – total interior volume is up 1.8 cubic feet, rear seat legroom is increased by 2.1 inches, and total cargo length with the second-row seats folded flat is up 9.8 inches versus the previous model.



Converting from passenger to cargo hauling is made easier than ever with the new one-motion dive-down 60/40 split rear seat, and available power tailgate with hands-free operation.





New Powertrain and Chassis Technology



The 2017 CR-V in EX and higher trims are powered by CR-V's first ever turbocharged engine, a 1.5-liter DOHC, Direct-Injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine with dual Valve Timing Control (VTC), delivering notably refined and responsive performance across the engine's full operating range.



Combined with the CR-V's more aerodynamic body, models equipped with the new turbocharged powerplant received the highest EPA fuel economy ratings in the compact SUV class (non-hybrid). CR-V LX trims are powered by a 2.4-liter DOHC direct-injected i-VTEC engine with Variable Timing Control (VTC). Both engines are mated to a smooth shifting and sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic.



All-wheel-drive models feature an upgraded Real Time AWD system with a significant increase in maximum rear-wheel torque delivery and new electronic control allowing stepless control in everyday driving conditions and further improved all-weather confidence and control. 



The all-new body and chassis design in the 2017 CR-V provides more agile and confident handling, greater refinement, additional ground clearance and superior overall versatility.




 Its front MacPherson strut and new rear multi-link suspension utilize specially tuned low-friction dampers, with both FWD and AWD models including tubular front and solid rear stabilizer bars that promote responsive turn-in and flatter cornering. Dual-pinion, variable ratio Electric Power Steering (EPS) also contributes to the CR-V's direct and satisfying steering feel.




More Premium and Technologically Advanced Interior



The 2017 CR-V also raises the bar for interior refinement, utility and premium features in the compact SUV class.




The more spacious cabin features substantially upgraded materials throughout, including a new soft-touch instrument panel and more intricately stitched seats. A new color TFT driver information interface (DII) center meter display adds to the handsome new design aesthetic.



The CR-V offers the latest in-vehicle connectivity and audio performance with a new generation of advanced technologies. Available features include a 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio interface with Android operating system that now features a physical volume knob as well as an available new Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ developed in cooperation with the experts at Garmin®.



The CR-V 's Display Audio system is compatible with the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ platforms, giving customers seamless integration of key smartphone features and functions, including smartphone-powered GPS navigation and voice-controlled search capabilities.



Some of the key new comfort and convenience features available on the 2017 Honda CR-V include remote engine start, dual-zone climate controls, heated side mirrors, an Electric Parking Brake (EPB), dual rear USB charging ports, front passenger seat with 4-way power adjustment and driver's seat with 8-way power adjustment and 4-way power lumbar support.




Design, Development and Manufacturing



Combining an American exterior design proposal with a Japan-led interior design, the 2017 Honda CR-V was designed and developed by Honda R&D Co., Ltd. in Japan. 



The new CR-V will be produced at three plants in North America – in East Liberty, Ohio; Alliston, Ontario, Canada; and, for the first time, in Greensburg Indiana. Engines for the new CR-V will be manufactured in Anna, Ohio and in Alliston, Ontario, while the CVT will be produced by Honda in Russells Point, Ohio.
