2017 Honda CR-V

Pros: Generous cargo space; spacious back seat; comfortable ride; nicely finished cabin

Cons: Minor turbo lag with new 1.5-liter engine; no stand-alone factory options means stepping up to expensive high-end models to get desired features

CG Says: Honda’s five-seat compact crossover SUV is redesigned for 2017. Compared to the outgoing CR-V, the new one is slightly larger, roomier, and dressier, and it’s offered with a host of new features—including its first turbocharged engine. The base LX model has a 184-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that’s essentially carried over from the previous-generation CR-V. All other models have a new 190-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Both engines are mated to a CVT automatic transmission, and all models are available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Remote engine start, rain-sensing wipers, a hands-free power liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate controls, heated power mirrors, and automatic high-beam headlamps are all newly available features. Other available comfort and convenience features include LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and starting, and a 180-degree rear camera. Available safety features include rear cross-traffic alert (new for ’17), blind-spot alert, driver-attention monitor, forward-collision warning and mitigation, and lane-keep assist. The CR-V’s well-executed redesign brings welcome improvements in passenger and cargo space, several desirable new features, and impressive all-around refinement. In terms of both handling and acceleration, the CR-V isn’t as sporty as some compact-crossover competitors, but it’s still one of the best in its class.
