The redesign for 2017 Honda CR-V shows that if you want to stay on top. Sometimes you have to be willing to make some pretty big changes. Honda typically has been conservative when passing from one CRB generation to the next. but that’s not enough anymore to battle red hot small SUV competitors, the CR-V fights the TOYOTA Rav4 and the Ford escape atop the sales charts. So this time the CR-V makes a big leap from the outgoing model, But they’re not exactly jumping into the unknown, turns out that the CR-V shares an awful lot with the Honda Civic itself becoming more upscale and athletic and its latest redesign.
To start most CR-Vs get a version of the 1.5 litre turbocharged, four-cylinder found the civic, here makes a 190 horsepower, that turbo provides more torque at lower engine speeds in the base engine found in the basic LX model, that engine is a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder making a 184 horsepower it basically carries over from the previous generation. Either engine comes mated to a continuously variable transmission or CVT to optimize fuel economy. Just like with the civic on the work to make the crb more engaging to drive.
Maybe more important more buyer following the lead of a lot of other recent Honda’s, Honda worked hard to make the interior quieter, adding active noise cancellation, that move upscale is echoed inside, for the first time you can actually call CR-V interior swanky, at least in this top trim touring, chunks of wood trim and fancy stitch seats at I candidate or otherwise is a super practical cabin. Access is about as easy a gift with a nearly flat,so in tall doors that open wide, rear seat room is enormous particularly for this class. And there’s plenty of rear cargo space helped by a rear seat that folds completely flat.
Upfront on to thankfully added a volume knop to their touchscreen infotainment center, but it’s annoying system layout put it behind many other systems in ease of use, at east apple carplay and android auto are included with this upper-level system. Behind it takes a big leap ahead when it comes to standard safety equipment. Important things like forward collision warning an automatic emergency braking comes standard on all but the base LX trim. that means about 75% of the CRVs honda cell will come with this important safety equipment. that’s that we wish it was standard on all of them. Just like it is on a Toyota Rav4 TX and higher trims of the CRV also have standard blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam, ‘he’s school zone automatic climate control, moonroof, a power driver seat with four way lumbar, and the more complicated touch screen radio that’s a lot of stuff, the EXL model adds leather, a power liftgate and a power passenger seat.
While the top trim touring adds more noise insulation LED headlights and standard factory navigation. all of this makes the CR-V a very tempting competitor in the small SUV wars. Also read: 2018 jeep wrangler secrets revealed and release date.
