The 2017 Honda CR-V Delivers Utility and Capability on the Road

  • 2017 Honda CR-V

    New England drivers looking for a compact crossover that can handle all of life’s twists and turns, the 2017 Honda CR-V has impressive utility and capability that does not disappoint. As one of America’s best-selling SUVs, the new 2017 model is even better than ever and expands the utility side of the features and equipment so the CR-V can do more while remaining the same compact size on the road.


With four different trim levels to choose from, no matter which model is right for you, you can be sure it will deliver a lot of power on the road. Under the hood of the standard LX model is a 2.4L engine paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode. This LX packs a punch on the road and achieves up to 184 hp @ 6,400 rpm and 180 lb-ft of torque @ 3,900 rpm.

Drivers who want to explore the upper trim levels will see an upgraded turbocharged 1.5L engine, which, when paired with the CVT, increases the power on the road and outshines the competition. The EX, EX-L, and Touring models all achieve up to 190 hp @ 5,600 rpm and 179 lb-ft of torque @ 2,000-5,000 rpm.

Capability in Features and Equipment

The utility features and equipment in the 2017 Honda CR-V make it one of the most capable on the road, whether it’s offering a little assistance when you need it most or tackling the New England roads and weather conditions. Some of the highlights include:

Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System – Available on every 2017 CR-V model is Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System. It can react to road conditions in real time, so you don’t need to worry about activating it manually, delivering power where it is needed most for an overall better performance. Even snowy road conditions are no match for the expert handling and traction control that this system adds to the CR-V. And that can make a crucial difference for winters in New England.

Hill Start Assist – Coming as a standard feature on every 2017 CR-V model is hill start assist. This system keeps the CR-V stationary when it is stopped on an incline and prevents it from rolling backward in the interval of time it takes from the driver’s foot to go from the brake to the gas.

Eco Assist System – To help maximize the CR-V’s mpg is the Eco Assist System, which acts as a guide to aid drivers in driving more fuel efficiently. The multi-information display will show drivers how efficiently they are driving and can help them develop new and better habits like smooth acceleration and braking.

Fog Lights – Standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring models are fog lights that can penetrate the thickest and darkest New England fog and illuminate the road ahead.

Cargo Space and Seat Configurations

The rear seats in the CR-V are a 60/40-split and allow for a number of different seating and cargo configuration possibilities—whether you’re carting groceries for the week, picking up the kids from school, or both.


Honda CR-V Flat Cargo Area

Flat – Fold the rear seats down entirely for a completely flat cargo space area. This maximizes the cargo volume to measure up to 75.8 cubic feet. For a compact crossover, that is a lot of space—even enough for a small couch.

Split – Whether you have more cargo than passengers or more passengers than cargo, the split in the rear seats allows some seats to remain intact while others can easily be folded flat in order to accommodate whatever you need.

2017 Honda CR-V Touring Cargo Space

Up – With the rear seats remaining up and intact, the CR-V seats five passengers, while the cargo area behind still offers a roomy and comfortable amount of space that measures at 39.2 cubic feet.

More Capability

The impressive power and stability of the CR-V makes way for even more capability in terms of towing and hauling.

Towing Capacity – All models of the CR-V have a towing capacity of 1,500 lbs. So hook up your trailer, camper, or boat and hit the road.

Ground Clearance – The 2WD versions of the CR-V have a ground clearance of 7.8 inches. Drivers who choose the AWD option will see a higher ground clearance about which Car and Driver says, “Its 8.2 inches of ground clearance with all-wheel drive mean navigating unmapped roads is possible.”

Roof Rails – Standard on the Touring model are roof rails, which can secure cargo and other items up top, freeing up space inside. A number of accessories and roof attachments are available so you can securely haul bikes, kayaks, skis, and more.
