The 2017 Honda CR-V should be starting to get worried about the future as it doesn’t look as though it is going to be able to climb above the Civic or the Accord.
The crossover segment is very popular at the moment and Honda is taking full advantage of this. The Honda CR-V has been among the most popular of utility vehicles over in the US since it made its arrival in 1997. Now they are about to launch the 2017 Honda CR-V and this will hit dealers on 21 December.
However, Honda isn’t aiming for the 2017 Honda CR-V to take over and replace the Honda Civic or the Accord to become the best-seller. The general manager said that he couldn’t see it being so big that it would take over as the sales leader for the long term.
2017 may well be a great year for the Honda CR-V though and there is no doubt that the model it is replacing has been able to hold its head above water despite the fact that competition has been intense.
The 2017 Honda CR-V is going to offer up the 1.5 litre turbocharged on all but the entry level LX trim and it will offer up 190 horses and offer more efficiency that the outgoing version. On the EX and above trims comes pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control and road-departure mitigation.
