2017 Honda CR-V Find It At Your Middletown Area Car Dealer – Schaller Honda
There are a few things you can count on in life. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. The Arctic is cold. And the Honda CR-V will remain one of America’s favorite compact SUVs. There are plenty of reasons customers of the Middletown Car Dealer hold the 2017 Honda CR-V in such high esteem. It has ample cabin space, lots of room to store cargo, excellent fuel economy and outstanding safety scores.
It may be hard to imagine how Honda could improve last year’s CR-V, but the automaker has done just that. The wheelbase gets an increase of 1.6-inches, and the rear passengers now have 2.1 inches more legroom, for a total of 40.4 inches. The automaker adds 2 cubic feet of rear cargo space behind the flat-folding 60/40-split bench seat. There’s a total of 39 cubic feet when all seats are used. There’s more ground clearance, too, from 6.3 inches to 7.8 inches for front-wheel-drive (FWD) models and from 6.7 inches to 8.2 inches for all-wheel-drive (AWD) versions.
Honda’s designers bestowed the 2017 CR-V with bolder styling and new standard features, which can be found at other Middletown Car Dealerships. These include LED daytime running lights, larger standard and available wheels, and dual exhaust tips. For the first time, the CR-V gets an optional turbocharged engine.
The automotive press and the car-buying public are unanimous in their praise for the 2017 Honda CRV, with Automobile Magazine writing: “The competition better bring it big time if it has any hope of making a major dent in the CR-V’s dominant market position, one Honda just solidified further with its impressive new model.”
The five-seat Honda CR-V is available in four trims: LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. All models other than the LX are powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 190 horsepower and 179 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with a sport mode. The LX trim gets an updated version of the previous year’s direct-injected 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder. This block now develops 184 hp and 180 lb.-ft. of torque and is teamed with a CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional for both engines.
The CR-V with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine gets fuel economy estimated by the EPA at 30 mpg combined (28 mpg city, 34 mpg highway).* With all-wheel drive, these numbers are one mpg lower. These impressive figures not only best the previous model, they also beat the competition, including the Ford Escape, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4.
The 2017 Honda CR-V received the highest rating of Good in IIHS crash tests. A rearview camera is standard on all CR-V models. Standard safety features for upper trims include a forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking, a collision mitigation system, driver attention monitor and lane keep assist.
