Honda CR-V 2017 model is here and we have more information for you
The Honda CR-V 2017 model features a new turbocharged engine – the first for the CR-V – that’s also used in the very popular all new Honda Civic. The 1.5-liter four-cylinder is expected to be rated at 193 horsepower and 243Nm of torque. The torque maxes out from 2,000 to 5,000 rpm. The Civic shared engine is paired with a continuously variable transmission.
This new CR-V rides on a new platform derived from the Civic. It is 1.2 inches longer with a 1.6-inch gain between the wheels. It’s also 1.4 inches taller and wider. Collectively, this means the cabin is roomier, and cargo volume with the rear seat up increases two cubic feet to 39.2 cu ft. But, the CR-V’s interior goes way beyond numbers. The instrument panel is upgraded with two new screens, a seven-inch touchscreen in the middle and a colorful driver interface. The A-pillar is also thinner, which makes for better visibility.
