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.

More and more automakers are throwing their hand into the self-driving car market, and Honda is no exception. In fact, recently, Honda has expressed interest in working with Google on their Waymo project, which focuses on autonomous vehicles.
Waymo reportedly already makes use of self-driving sensors, self-driving software, and an advanced computing platform, which would certainly help Honda catapult to the head of the game. These tech features are already being tested on United States soil, and soon, they could be tested in a Honda model.
Honda even announced recently that they would like to have self-driving vehicles on the road by 2020, which is getting closer every day, in an aim to reach a “collision-free” society. Not only would self-driving cars be convenient, but also, they would be much safer.
With automated sensor systems, self-driving vehicles would be able to communicate with each other instantaneously, avoiding collisions with both other cars and street obstacles. There’s no telling how many lives could be saved if there was an enormous shift toward self-driving cars on the road.
