The 2017 Honda CR-V LX 2WD is priced at just $24,045 MSRP,* but it has the look and feel of an expensive luxury automobile. Total passenger space in the CR-V’s LX trim is a generous 105.9 cubic feet, and it provides plenty of breathing room for up to five passengers. The CR-V LX’s driver’s seat has been equipped with six-way manual adjustment, but for those who want even more control, upgrading to the EX trim brings heated front seats and a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. When they upgrade one step further to the EX-L trim level, buyers will also receive a four-way power-adjustable passenger’s seat and programmable two-position memory settings for their driver’s seat. In this trim, the CR-V has also been outfitted with a leather-trimmed interior, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
The CR-V’s second row is equally well equipped. Thanks to this compact SUV’s easy fold-down 60/40-split rear seat, buyers will be able to quickly expand their cargo bay when they need to. When each of its rear seats are locked in upright positions, the CR-V provides an ample 39.2 cubic feet of cargo volume. When you’ve collapsed both sections of your rear seat, the CR-V’s total cargo volume expands dramatically to 75.8 cubic feet! Even the CR-V’s LX trim includes cargo-area tie-down anchors, and its EX trim also offers a retractable cargo-area cover. Every seat in the CR-V has been equipped with three-point seat belts and headrests, and its rear row offers Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) for easy car-seat installation.
The audio and connectivity technologies in the 2017 Honda CR-V are sure to spice up all your journeys. Buyers will receive one of four available speaker systems depending on which trim level they end up purchasing. The LX offers a 160-watt, four-speaker system; the EX is equipped with a 180-watt, six-speaker system; and the EX-L adds two more speakers to the EX’s array. By upgrading all the way to the CR-V’s Touring trim, buyers will be able to enjoy incredible sound with a 330-watt, 9-speaker Premium Audio system, which includes a subwoofer. Each of these options functions in concert with speed-sensitive volume control, Pandora compatibility, and a USB audio interface that doubles as a charging port. These features are joined by HondaLink, Sirius XM Radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto in every trim except the LX. Top-tier entertainment and connectivity features such as HD Radio, Song by Voice, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation, and HD Digital Traffic are available in the EX-L model and standard on Touring. Drivers and passengers can control all these features by taking advantage of their CR-V’s 5-inch color LCD screen, or in the EX trim, a 7-inch Display Audio electrostatic touchscreen system.
