2017 Honda CR-V NightThe Honda CR-V hasn’t had a redesign in over 5 years, so the 2017 model brings about a lot of thrilling changes for Goshen and Monroe drivers to get excited about.

Keep reading to find out more about the changes that have been made to the totally redesigned 2017 model.

New Design

A new aggressive style comes with the redesign of the 2017 Honda CR-V, apparent in its stylized headlights surrounded by a wing-shaped LED DRL array and its wide, muscular fenders. It also has a slightly longer wheelbase and longer hood with short rear overhangs and a dual exhaust. The athletic yet sophisticated exterior is also complemented with a Honda-first Active Shutter Grille, upgraded aluminum alloy wheels, and narrower A-pillars for improved visibility.

More Power

Goshen and Monroe drivers looking for more power will find it in the newly available 1.5L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. It’s not only more powerful but also more efficient. It’s expected to command up to 190-hp and 179 lb.-ft. of torque, and will likely have great mileage, if last years’ numbers are any indication.

More Comfort and Tech

The 2017 Honda CR-V will be larger than previous models and boast top-in-class interior space with best-in-class rear legroom. Materials throughout the cabin have been upgraded for an even more elegant interior.

You’ll also find that technology has been advanced even further with new generation in-vehicle connectivity. There’s an available 7-inch touchscreen display that offers Android and Apple CarPlay as well as the newly available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™. You can also take advantage of the available remote engine start, dual-zone climate controls, heated side mirrors, Electric Parking Brake (EPB), rear USB charging ports, front passenger seat with 4-way power adjustment, driver’s seat with 8-way power adjustment and 4-way power lumbar support, and heated front seats.
