The CR-V's new windswept the front stop appearance includes signature Honda LED headlights (Touring trim), a Honda-first Active Shutter Grille gadget that lowers aerodynamic drag, uprated aluminum alloy wheel sizes to 17 or 18 inches on all trims, narrower A-pillars for advanced visibility, and sporty twin exhaust. Adding convenience is a Honda-first to be had Hands Free Access Power Tailgate, which allows opening and ultimate the tailgate without a doubt through kicking a foot to activate a sensor beneath the rear of the vehicle.
The new outside layout is complimented by means of the brand new CR-V platform's high-quality-in-class area-efficiency. Its wider stance and longer wheelbase notably gain indoors space - general indoors extent is up 1.Eight cubic ft, rear seat legroom is increased by way of 2.1 inches, and overall cargo period with the second one-row seats folded flat is up nine.8 inches as opposed to the previous version. Converting from passenger to cargo hauling is made simpler than ever with the brand new one-motion dive-down 60/forty split rear seat, and available strength tailgate with hands-free operation.
New Powertrain and Chassis Technology
The 2017 Honda CR-V in EX and better trims are powered through 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), handing over appreciably refined and responsive overall performance across the engine's complete working variety. Combined with the CR-V's more aerodynamic frame, fashions prepared with the brand new turbocharged powerplant have the best EPA fuel economic system scores inside the compact SUV magnificence (non-hybrid). CR-V LX trims are powered via a 2.Four-liter DOHC direct-injected i-VTEC engine with Variable Timing Control (VTC). Both engines are mated to a easy transferring and sporty constantly variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic.
All-wheel-drive models feature an upgraded Real Time AWD gadget with a good sized boom in maximum rear-wheel torque shipping and new digital manage allowing stepless manage in everyday driving conditions and similarly improved all-weather self assurance and control. The all-new frame and chassis layout in the 2017 CR-V affords extra agile and assured coping with, more refinement, extra floor clearance and superior ordinary versatility. Its front MacPherson strut and new rear multi-hyperlink suspension utilize particularly tuned low-friction dampers, with each FWD and AWD models which include tubular the front and stable rear stabilizer bars that sell responsive turn-in and flatter cornering. Dual-pinion, variable ratio Electric Power Steering (EPS) additionally contributes to the CR-V's direct and fulfilling steerage sense.
Body & Exterior
The 5th-era CR-V outdoors offers sporty and modern styling to healthy its cozy and spacious indoors, at the same time as additionally offering maximum software price for a extensive range of users.

The layout additionally capabilities a 1.6-inch longer wheelbase that improves rear-seat roominess and experience satisfactory.
Although the new automobile's silhouette is reminiscent of the previous Honda CR-V, its details certainly outline it as the subsequent technology. These consist of a windswept new front stop look, along with signature Honda LED headlights (Touring trim), a Honda-first Active Shutter Grille System that lowers aerodynamic drag, uprated aluminum alloy wheel sizes, narrower A-pillars for stepped forward visibility, and dual exhaust shops. Adding comfort is a Honda-first available Hands Free Access Power Tailgate (Touring), which permits opening and final the tailgate through using a foot-activated movement sensor placed underneath the rear bumper. Available chrome garnishes, rain-sensing windshield wipers, roof rails and severa Genuine Honda Accessories additionally enlarge splendor, comfort and capability.
Developed with a mixture of computational fluid dynamics, scale-model wind-tunnel testing, and Honda's first complete-scale wind-tunnel trying out incorporating a jogging belt, the 2017 CR-V is quite optimized aerodynamically. The advanced engineering and improvement paintings, in mixture with key outdoors layout capabilities, effects in a 2-percent improvement in aerodynamic drag (CdA) as compared to the previous-generation CR-V.
