The new 2017 Honda CR-V is bigger and better than ever before, so it’s no wonder that the model was recently named one of America’s best-selling cars, right next to the new Honda Civic. Of course, the Honda CR-V has been popular for years, but the 2017 model has truly raised the bar.
To begin with, various trim levels for the Honda CR-V are fueled by a 1.5-liter turbo engine that gets up to 190 horsepower, offering a smooth, powerful drive. Plus, the engine boosts the model’s fuel economy, now sitting at up to 34 miles per gallon on the highway.
The new Honda CR-V is also being celebrated for its top-notch driving dynamics, interior space, safety programs, and even its affordability. Between its low starting MSRP and impressive fuel economy, there’s no telling how much you could save.
Lastly – and more important than ever, during the winter months – the new Honda CR-V comes with all-wheel drive, protecting you on snowy and icy roads. This also makes the model perfect for light off-roading adventures.

The redesigned Honda CR-V is expected to arrive at dealerships in winter and it’s sure to be something fierce.

The new Honda CR-V will boast a wider, more athletic look with LED headlights and taillights that accent the new styling. Inside, drivers can expect to see premium materials, like a soft-touch instrument panel, as well as a new infotainment system. The CR-V will also feature Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
Honda is expecting best-in-class fuel economy ratings from both the turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. The latter engine also debuted in the new Honda Civic. Both engines will be mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission.
Since its introduction in 1997, the Honda CR-V has become the bestselling SUV in the United States with nearly four million units sold. This year, sales are up 1.5%.

There are plenty of ways to measure how safe a car is. The sheer amount of safety features in some cars is staggering, while others seem to be lacking. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety conducts safety tests on top models every year. Year after year, Honda performs particularly well, proving safety is a top priority on the road.
This year, four Honda vehicles made the Top Safety Pick+ list, the highest safety rating given by the IIHS. Testing areas include small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats.
In the mid-size car segment, both the two-door and four-door Honda Accord held strong, earning top marks in every category, including front crash prevention. Available with the Honda Sensing Package and Collision Mitigation Braking System, the Accord is a top model in its segment for another year.
In the small car category, the Honda Civic pulled the same scores as its older sibling. As for family vehicles, the Honda CR-V crossover earned the top rating as well.
Although it wasn’t a Top Safety Pick+, we can’t forget the Honda Odyssey minivan, which fell just short of the top score. Coming in with a Top Safety Pick rating, the Odyssey earned top scores in all but front crash prevention.
The 2015 Honda CR-V was recently named the Best Compact SUV in a challenge judged by USA Today, Cars.com and MotorWeek. The CR-V’s all around appeal, including great features and a smooth ride, made it the top pick for the judges.
The CR-V went up against six other compact SUVs in a battle to see which one was the best. All of the models entered were priced around $28,000 and had an estimated fuel efficiency of 26 mpg in combined driving. The entrants were judged by a panel of experts along with a family that was in the market for a new SUV.
Honda’s mid-size SUV is no stranger to awards. One of its highest achievements was being named the 2015 SUV of the year by Motor Trend. It’s also the best-selling SUV in the U.S. The CR-V is definitely a crowd pleaser for many reasons, and it makes a great car for families. Between the updated interior, fuel efficiency, and cargo space, you can’t go wrong.
