The 2017 Honda CR-V is an excellent compact crossover, thanks to a complete package that offers contemporary styling, engaging driving dynamics, and a spacious interior for five passengers, and their cargo. Now in its fifth generation, the redesigned 2017 CR-V is larger than the outgoing model, thus offering more interior and cargo space. It gains a new turbocharged engine that is even more efficient than the base engine, getting an EPA rating of 34 mpg. This Honda’s 5-passenger compact crossover SUV arrives with more standard interior technology, and active-safety features like blind-spot monitoring and automatic emergency braking. With the SE trim gone, Honda sells the 2017 CR-V in four trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring.


2017 Honda CR-V For Sale

A good pick for most shoppers, the 2017 Honda CR-V LX is on sale at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting around $24,045. However, with a turbocharged engine along with impressive standard interior features and numerous advanced safety technology, the EX is the best value choice starting at around $26,795. Used compact SUV shoppers looking for premium amenities like leather upholstery, and a power liftgate, should opt for the $29,295 EX-L trim while the top-of-the-line Touring trim adds navigation and rain-sensing wipers. Buyers can get a used 2017 CR-V at an average price of around $26,400. Moreover, the Honda CR-V lasts more than 200,000 miles and has an affordable five-year cost of ownership estimated at around $20,940. Another option is to lease the latest Honda CR-V model. You can lease a CR-V at the best price of $299 per month for 36 months with $3,599 due at signing.

2017 Honda CR-V Buying Advice

Honda gave the CR-V a full redesign for the 2017 model year. If you are considering older models, a 2017 CR-V's price is almost $2,600 more than a 2016 model. Considering these new features the 2017 model is well worth the extra spend. Moreover, a 2018 CR-V is identical to the 2017 model, and will likely cost more for similar features.

For most buyers, we recommend the 2017 CR-V EX trim. Starting from an average list price of $26,795, it adds a more efficient and powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine, along with more interior features such as dual-zone climate control, moonroof, push-button start, heated front seats, and an upgraded infotainment system featuring a 7-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

7.0/10

"The 2017 Honda CR-V has a cavernous cargo hold and an upscale cabin with ample room for passenger, and it earns solid safety and predicted reliability ratings." - Cars.USnews

The 2017 Honda CR-V crossover SUV comes in four trim levels:  LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring, for sale in a total of 10 configurations. The 2017 CR-V has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at just under $25,000 for the base LX model. Next-in-line EX model is far more recommendable as it offers an impressive list of amenities and advanced safety features than the base model and has an average price starting around $26,795. Adding premium leather and other modern features to the EX-L model will cost around $30,000. For top-notch luxury and features, the most-equipped CR-V model is the Touring edition which begins at over $32,000. All-wheel drive is optional on all trims of the 2017 CR-V, costing $1,300 extra.

2017 Honda CR-V

If we compare the pricing of the new CR-V in the compact class segment, it costs slightly lower than its archrival - Toyota RAV4. However, Nissan Rogue and Ford Escape start slightly lower. Recommending the Honda CR-V over others is easy as the car has a high resale value. Since its inception, it held its value, and we expect this to continue even for this all-new model.

Standard Features

The least-expensive Honda CR-V LX has a decent standard features list including the single-zone automatic climate control, backup camera, 6-way manual adjust driver’s seat, cruise control, and a 4-speaker, 160-watt audio system with 5-inch color screen, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. In the CR-V lineup, only the LX comes equipped with the carryover 2.4-liter engine. The EX model will be the best choice for most buyers. See the buying advice to know more.

Engine and Performance
8.8/10

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

Diversifying its engine choices, the 2017 Honda CR-V offers two fuel-efficient and peppy engine choices. The base CR-V LX model sports a standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 184 HP and 180lb-ft of torque, which is adequate for daily driving. The LX is priced at $24,045 for the 2WD and at $25,345 for the AWD. All other CR-V trims except the LX feature a stronger 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that puts out 190 HP. Both engines are mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is available.

2017 Honda CR-V Performance

Both the competitors considered come with 2.4L 4-cylinder engines which are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Honda CR-V never lags in acceleration, the base model goes from 0 to 60mph in 8.6 seconds which is really swift. Both engines on the 2017 CR-V are rated to tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Honda sure does deserve much applause for its attempt at taming four-cylinder 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. 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.

2017 Honda CR-V Ride, Handling, and Braking Performance

Honda updated the 2017 CR-V's suspension and steering which has further refined the handling and improved the riding comfort. After the 2017 redesign, the CR-V offers well-weighted steering, while handling the 2017 Honda CR-V has become easy and comforting. The updated steering is quick to respond even on small movements, making this SUV easy to maneuver in tight spaces. The smooth-shifting CVT automatic transmission is better than traditional CVTs and has a sports mode for added responsiveness.

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. Even when compared with its competition, that is the 2017 Ford Escape and the 2017 Mazda CX-5, it is the ride quality of the Honda CR-V that stands out.

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.

Fuel Economy
8.9/10

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

The 2017 Honda CR-V delivers class-leading mpg figures in the compact SUV segment. With the base engine, the new CR-V delivers 26 mpg in city driving conditions and 32 mpg on the highway. The available 1.5-liter engine, unlike other turbocharged engines, improves the fuel economy ratings up to 28 and 34 mpg. Adding an all-wheel configuration lowers the mileage by 1 mpg in the city and on the highway.

Interior
9.4/10

"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

8.6/10

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

The all-new Honda CR-V builds on its subtle design, into a more domesticated beast. The latest version of the Honda CR-V marks the start of the fifth-generation model with a bold stance complemented by its chrome front grille and headlamps fitted with DRLs.

2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Ford Escape

2017 Ford Escape

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.
