Honda has unveiled the all-new 2017 CR-V and the SUV has been totally redone. One of the biggest changes comes under the hood with the new turbo engine that brings more power and class-leading fuel economy to the mix. That engine is a 1.5L DOHC direct-injection four making 190hp.
CR-V LX trims will come with a larger 2.4L DOHC i-VTECO engine. Both engines will use the same CVT transmission. Both FWD and AWD models are available.The car gets a 7-inch touchscreen inside and will come with Apple Carplay and Android Auto. The new CR-V also has best-in class rear seat legroom and more cargo space. Pricing and exact availability information are unknown.
“The new Honda CR-V raises the bar in every imaginable way, delivering more performance, space and premium content together with higher fuel economy ratings and value than ever before,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “Customers are going to love what they see and what they experience behind the wheel of this new CR-V.”
