As one of the pioneers of the whole crossover segment with over 20 years of presence in the market, Honda CR-V has nothing to prove and its loyal customer base guarantee the sales success of every new model. Still, in today’s market flooded with all sorts of designs and options, the old CR-V needs to change and update itself in order to survive.

As such, the 2017 Honda CR-V gets not only new styling, but a more premium interior, the model’s first-ever turbocharged engine and a host of new features and technologies. The looks are definitely more premium, even though they have retained some of that CR-V kinkiness in the stylized headlights, muscular fenders, short rear overhang and dual exhausts. The fifth-gen CR-V comes with Honda-first Automatic Shutter Grille System that lowers aerodynamic drag, uprated aluminum alloy wheel sizes to 17 or 18 inches on all trims and narrower A-pillars for improved visibility.

Inside the upgraded cabin you are greeted by premium materials including a new soft-touch instrument panel and more intricately stitched seats. Available features include a 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio interface with Android operating system and GPS, remote engine start, dual-zone climate controls, heated side mirrors, an Electric Parking Brake (EPB), rear USB charging ports, front passenger seat with 4-way power adjustment and driver’s seat with 8-way power adjustment and 4-way power lumbar support and heated front and rear outboard seats.

As for the engines, the 2017 Honda CR-V can be ordered with a turbocharged engine for the first time ever, a 1.5-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder with 190 horsepower. If that’s too weak for you, you can always go for the 2.4-liter DOHC, direct-injected i-VTEC. The CR-V boasts a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic, Dual-pinion, variable ratio Electric Power Steering (EPS), MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension, and a choice of front- or all-wheel-drive.
