There’s a lot of reasons the Honda CR-V has been a top seller in Canada over the past several years and with the new features in the 2017 model, the CR-V is poised to become the number one selling mid size SUV on the market.
It is already the number one SUV in the U.S.
First introduced in 1997, the CR-V has gone through some dramatic changes over the past two decades.
The 2017 model is the fifth generation of the vehicle with an all new design for this year.
Unveiled in October of 2016, the new CR-V is bigger and better equipped.
It is slightly larger than the previous version and is designed as a sleekly styled cross-over that maintains the interior of a luxury sedan while keeping its rugged SUV exterior.
Powered by a 1.5 liter, 16 valve, direct injection, turbocharged 4-cylinder power plant, the engine provides 190 horsepower while maintaining a high level of fuel economy.
The CR-V is equipped with a standard continuously variable transmission that achieves peak efficiency at all times.
The interior is designed for comfort with heated front seats and a hands free wireless mobile phone interface.
When you think of an SUV, of course the outdoors comes to mind and the CR-V is equipped with an easy fold-down 60-40 split rear seatback and adjustable cargo floor height for those out of the way adventures when you need the space to store your gear.
The package is complete with 17″ aluminum-alloy wheels, rear privacy-tinted glass, body-coloured heated power door mirrors, and projector-beam halogen headlights with auto on / off.
With Honda, safety is always in the forefront of design.
Engineered with a 4-wheel anti-lock braking system, vehicle stability assist with traction control, front airbags, and a rollover sensor system with side curtain airbags, the CR-V has the most up to date safety systems in the world.
The 1017 Honda CR-V is setting the new standard for engineering, design, and reliability in the mid-size SUV category.
