2017 Honda CR-V Review
If you’re considering your next crossover SUV, you’ve definitely come across the Honda CR-V in your research. And it’s no wonder – the 2017 Honda CR-V has been keeping drivers happy for years during their trips around Panama City and Springfield.
To give you the full details of the 2017 CR-V, our team at Honda of Bay County has put together this review so you can decide if the CR-V is the right choice for you.
Whether you’re looking to accommodate your growing family or you just need some more vehicle space, the CR-V is certainly worth checking out. Let’s get started by looking at the interior of this stellar SUV.
Inside the Honda CR-V
When you step into the cabin of the 2017 CR-V, you’ll immediately notice its immense passenger space along with top-of-the-line, high-quality materials that give it a luxurious feel. You won’t mind volunteering to be the carpool parent when you’re driving around in this ride!
The CR-V is not only stylish but comfortable as well. Backseat riders can enjoy 40.4 inches of legroom, so they can feel free to stretch out on long rides. Plus, with 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, or 75.8 cubic feet with the seats folded, everyone’s gear will be packed in with ease for the next big game.
And on the way to those games, you’ll want some entertainment. The CR-V comes standard with a 5-inch display along with Bluetooth® accessibility and a USB port so you can listen to all your favorite jams (unless your passengers beat you to it!). Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are also available features.
2017 CR-V Power & Performance
Just because you may be driving the kids to soccer practice in your SUV doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have some punch to it. The base model of the CR-V is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower. Or opt for the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine that puts out 190 horsepower.
Ironically, the turbocharged option not only gets more power but also slightly better fuel economy than the base model, with an EPA-estimated 28/34 mpg city/highway. The base model follows with an EPA-estimated 26 city MPG and an EPA-estimated 32 highway MPG1. As you can see, either pick is impressive not just for an SUV but a vehicle in general.
The CR-V also boasts great towing capability as well. With the ability to tow up to 1,500 pounds, feel free to hitch up the jet ski on the way to your next family vacation.
Safety in the CR-V
While it’s important to consider comfort and power in your CR-V, the biggest concern with your next SUV purchase should be safety. Fortunately, the CR-V doesn’t disappoint in this department, either.
The 2017 CR-V comes standard with a rearview camera, so you can avoid an impending collision when backing out of a parking spot. Other available assistance features include forward collision warning, a collision mitigation system, and lane keep assist. Your drives will be worry-free and more secure with such additional features.
