Honda News: 2017 CR-V Stands On Equal Footing As Civic And Accord
Honda's Civic and Accord are considered to be the top picks in the automaker's lineup in terms of sales and it has been this way for quite a long time. But as they say, all good things must come to an end. Things are about to change as the 2017 CR-V stands on equal footing as Civic and Accord.
The Rise Of The CR-V
The demand for SUVs and crossovers is presently at the highest. Thanks to gas prices being at an all-time low and easier process of getting loans as reported by Automotive News, this trend will apparently go on for some time. It was mentioned that since the CR-V made its way to the U.S. market in 1997, it has consistently been among the best sellers in the crossover segment. Clearly, the 2017 Honda CR-V has earned the right to stand at the top with the brand's best vehicles.
What The 2017 CR-V Offers
The 2017 Honda CR-V has a lot going on from the interior to its engine. It was reported by Car Scoops that the 2017 Honda CR-V will now be making use of a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that is also found in the Civic to give it a powerful 190 horsepower. This is paired with a standard front wheel drive (FWD) drivetrain but an all-wheel drive (AWD) option will also be available. Compared to the previous models, the Honda 2017 CR-V has a cabin that has been redesigned and packed with the latest in technology such as the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along driver assist and safety features.
Standing As Equals, Not Superior
While the 2017 CR-V stands on equal footing as Civic and Accord, it is not set to take over the lead role in terms of sales. "I don't think there was ever a mindset during the development process that this was so big that it could take over the role as the sales leader for the division on a long-term basis," said Jeff Conrad, general manager of Honda.
