The CR-V was Honda's best seller last year and it's back to do the same again this year. Prices for the 2017 model however, have increased a little bit. While higher prices are the last things buyers want to see, the 2017 CR-V upgrades make the price bumps worth it.

Exterior Features

According to a report from The Christian Times, the 2017 Honda CR-V has a more aggressive design paired with muscular looks that will immediately be noticed by buyers just by looking at the front fascia of the new model. The key features of the front section are the wide fenders along with LED headlights and a pair of wing-shaped daytime running lights. The 2017 Honda CR-V has also grown in size that gives it both aesthetic value and functionality in terms of driving comfort.

Interior Features

The 2017 Honda CR-V also has its fair share of interior upgrades from the cabin being adorned with luxurious materials to give it a premium look to connectivity feature as reported by Auto Focus. Accordingly, the 2017 Honda CR-V now supports CarPlay and Android Auto along with dual USB charging ports situated in the rear seats and an updated volume knob.
