With a fine-tuned exterior design the 2017 Honda CR-V comes in with four trim offerings. The price range of the CR-V goes from $24,045 for the base trim, LX 2WD, up to $33,795 for the high-end trim, Touring AWD. It gets a 1.5L 4-cylinder as its basic engine, this power unit generates 190 hp. It also gets a 2.4L diesel engine that churns out 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.

The interiors of the Honda CR-V are made more comfortable and featured packed in this model year, 2017. However, the interior room and cargo offering remain the same, and that is a good thing as it was the best-in-class, it still remains to be. The safety offering has always been top-notch in the cars by Honda and we get to witness the same even now.

2017 Honda CR-V Engine and Performance

8.7/10

The 2017 Honda CR-V is well-suited to daily driving. It has a comfortable ride, adequate engine power, and excellent fuel economy. It isn't the most powerful or most agile in the class, but for drivers using it to commute or run errands, it performs capably. –cars.usnews

For all the long years they only offered petrol engines. Honda has recently put their feet in the diesel engine game. Diversifying its engine portfolio, the 2017 Honda CRV goes ahead with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine that generates 184 HP and 180lb-ft of torque, however, this is specific only to the base LX trim. The LX is priced at $24,045 for the 2WD and at $25,345 for the AWD.

Honda sure does deserve much applause for its attempt at taming diesel engines as it delivers better than its competition, setting back the 2017 Ford Escape with its mere 168 hp. Close in competition is the 2017 Mazda CX-5, with a power output of 187hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. 

Acceleration of the 2017 Honda CR-V

Honda CR-V never lags in acceleration, it goes from 0 to 60mph in 8.6 seconds which is really swift. Well, there are a few advantages of a diesel engine and Honda offers it at a bare minimum of $24,045.

Despite the 2017 Mazda CX 5 spotting a more powerful engine, it is the Honda CRV that delivers in terms of performance, 0-60mph. However, the tables turn when it comes to the quarter-mile dash. Honda CR-V is placed in the second position just by a millisecond.

Braking of the 2017 Honda CR-V

We just mentioned the acceleration power of the Honda CR-V and its rivals. But we guess braking power is equally important as well. Excellent braking power is necessary for both city and highway driving conditions and despite having the smallest rotors in class, Honda delivers.

A big round of applause here for Honda, as they have done an excellent job by maintaining the body weight balance with the braking capacity so well that CR-V goes from 0 to 60mph in just 8.6 seconds with a stopping range of 117 ft. apart from the fact that the disc brake size is least in the CR-V.

2017 Honda CR-V Fuel Economy

8.9/10

" Front-wheel-drive models get 30 mpg combined." - Edmunds

2017 Honda CR-V Interior

8.9/10

"The interior design improves practicality and offers a welcome dose of style versus last year's model. Owners will appreciate little tricks such as adjusting the opening height for the rear hatch for tight garages and venting all four windows on hot days by holding the unlock button." - edmunds

Seating and comfort of the 2017 Honda CR-V 

At a price point that ranges between $24,045-$33,795, the 2017 Honda CRV comes with a plush and up-market interior to offer.

"The Honda CR-V's exterior is a little quirky, but it gets points for a terrific interior". - The Car Connection 

Dimension and Weight of the 2017 Honda CR-V

Honda CR-V right from the beginning had maintained a subtle design, something similar to a domesticated beast. However, the 2017 Honda CRV belonging to the fifth generation takes a bold stance with its Chrome front grill and headlamps fitted with DRL's. The side profiles remain the same but the rear and have something more to offer.

Shark fin antennas fitted on the rear side of the roof are another awe-striking aspect. Dimensionally, the CRV-V is almost 200lbs. lighter but an inch wider and longer than most of its rivals.

"The 2017 Honda CR-V has one of the highest safety ratings in the compact SUV class." - Cars.USnews

2017 Honda CR-V Competition

2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Ford Escape

The 2017 Ford Escape is a beautiful well-built, bold, and comprehensively feature-loaded option in the compact SUV segment. However, it lacks in terms of performance fuel efficiency, and power generation. Also, the Escape is significantly expensive than CR-V.

2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 is a good choice if you seek great drive quality from a compact SUV. Upfront it delivers more power when compared to the CR-V but in terms of performance, it falls behind.
