The newest 2017 Honda CR-V promises to be the big impact for the sales of Honda. It has a sophisticated look, zippy engine and myriad features that can give competitors threat.

2017 Honda CR-V Review: Why Everyone Is Buying This Car?

According to Business Insider, the 2017 model of Honda CR-V is slightly larger compared to its predecessor. The compact crossover has a measure of 180.6 inches long and a 104.7-inch wheelbase. This means that space will never be an issue anymore the users. Despite being in the compact crossover category, this formidable vehicle feels more like an SUV.

Honda released four different versions of the compact crossover, those are LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. In terms of its engine, all the 2017 Honda CR-V comes with a brand new 1.5- liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but except for the CR-V LX model, which packs a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter engine.

The 2017 Honda CR-V goes beyond boasting legroom for rear passengers, as reported by CNET. It has a mountainous 10 inches of additional linear cargo space with the rear seats folded down. Total cargo if the new CR-V is up to 75.8 cubic feet, an increase from 70.9 in the 2016 model. That beats the pants off the existing Mazda CX-5 and just edges out the Toyota RAV4.

Following the front, the center console can be customized in 3 ways, with a detachable tray that can keep smaller items within reach or be put away completely, and there's also plenty of storage in the doors for things such as water bottles, iPads or even maps.

As for the driver's benefits, he/she can get more help behind the wheel in this new Honda CR-V, too. The blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert can save the driver from a parking-lot fender-bender. The Honda CR-V's lane-keeping technology does a fairly good job too, it keeps the vehicle centered. Both technologies are standard on all but except again from the LX model.

2017 Honda CR-V Review: Mixing Classic Design At Its Finest

According to Jalopnik, Honda is really going at it full swing with its cybernetic, almost transformer-like design language on its 2017 CR-V. But unlike the Honda Civic, the CR-V’s mash-up of straight edges, blocky proportions as well as the overabundance of chrome actually add up to make it a much more coherent vehicle than the one it replaces.

There are fancy LED headlights up front and the classic upward tail lights that have been a CR-V design trait ever since its inception remain. It is bigger compared to other Honda sedan models, but it doesn’t seem that bigger on your first look. That’s because Honda has intentionally loaded the 2017 CR-V’s styling with intersecting lines that deceive the human eye into believing it is smaller than it actually is.

2017 Honda CR-V Price

The 2017 Honda CR-V starting to be on sale last year, December 21. The base LX starts at the price of $24,045, while the top-of-the-line Touring trim starts at the price of $32,395. Is the price worth it to buy the Honda's new car models? Yes, Honda has the best things to offer on this SUV. It provides subtle look we can be proud of and it offers the latest tech to enjoy the ride as well, according to Handi Tech. Even though the competition in this segment is extremely tight, the 2017 Honda CR-V is going to succeed it.
