The designers and engineers at Honda endeavor to build vehicles that you can depend on, and to that end, they’ve equipped the 2017 CR-V with a wide selection of convenience-enhancing technology features. Certain features that you may expect to see, like a multi-angle rearview camera and illuminated steering wheel–mounted controls, come alongside more surprising offerings like multi-functional center console storage and an auto-up/down driver’s window. And that’s just in the LX trim. By upgrading to EX or above, drivers will gain access to dual-zone automatic climate control, remote engine start, and Smart Entry technology. In the EX-L, your suite of convenience features will also include an auto-dimming rearview mirror and the invaluable HomeLink system! Rain-sensing windshield wipers and a hands-free access power tailgate have been made available in the CR-V Touring trim.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: The CR-V’s multi-angle rearview camera offers guidelines in the LX and dynamic guidelines in every other trim level. Both versions of this camera offer wide-angle, normal, and top-down views.
Smart Entry with Walk-Away Feature: When you approach your CR-V with your fob, the former recognizes your arrival and unlocks its doors for you! This feature also includes an intelligent walk-away feature, which locks your doors automatically when you exit the cabin with your fob.
Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate: Loading cargo is a breeze when you can utilize the CR-V’s hands-free access power tailgate. With this feature, you can open your rear hatch just by waving your foot under the CR-V’s bumper!
In the 2017 Honda CR-V, the convenience technologies we’ve mentioned are complemented by a range of audio and connectivity features that you’re sure to love. Each of the CR-V’s available trim levels has been outfitted with a different stereo system. Your options range from the 160-watt four-speaker audio system equipped in the LX to the 330-watt nine-speaker Premium Audio system that you’ll find in the CR-V Touring, so you’ll want to consider your options carefully. In the LX, you’ll be able to manage your entertainment settings with a 5-inch color LCD screen, but you can access an even more powerful 7-inch Display Audio system by upgrading to the EX. No matter which model you select, you’ll receive Bluetooth streaming audio, Pandora compatibility, and speed-sensitive volume control as standard features. In the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, you’ll also be able to take advantage of Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Sirius XM Radio, and HondaLink smartphone integration! Top technology features like Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation are available in the EX-L trim and standard on Touring.
Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation: This top-notch navigation system offers turn-by-turn directions, voice recognition functionality, and HD digital traffic projections. The inclusion of voice recognition also provides drivers with the convenience of Song-by-Voice technology.
7-Inch Display Audio: The CR-V’s 7-inch Display Audio system features an electrostatic high-resolution touchscreen that you can program and customize to your liking. With this feature, the controls and functions you use every day are all centralized in one easy-to-use interface.
HondaLink: Connect your smartphone to your CR-V with HondaLink technology! You can even send and receive messages with this technology when you take advantage of its SMS text message functionality.
Even today’s most impressive convenience and entertainment features aren’t worth much unless they’re complemented by technology features that will keep you and your passengers protected! This year, trims above the base model offer a blind-spot information system as well as the entire Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist features! This package, which includes Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Collision Mitigation Braking, is the gold standard in computer-powered driver-assistance technology.
Road Departure Mitigation: This feature uses a camera to watch the road’s shoulder and keep your CR-V from drifting over the outside line.
Lane Keeping Assist: Lane Keeping Assist technology prevents you from accidentally crossing the center line.
Adaptive Cruise Control: With this technology, you’ll be able to enjoy cruise control in light traffic! When you use your low-speed follow controls, you can decelerate automatically without exiting cruise control.
Collision Mitigation Braking: The CR-V’s Collision Mitigation Braking technology can apply the brakes on your vehicle when it senses an impending collision.
