Honda CR-V 2017 Review

There has been much progress in the entry level SUV section. brands like Ford, Mazda and Honda are to be credited here. All of these brands have made their mark and shaped this vehicle section.


Introduction to 2017 Honda CR-V

Honda CRV was introduced in 1995 and was well received by everyone. The lineup saw its last generation introduced in 2012, from then there were facelifts and minor updates only. Some of these improvements were IIHS Crash testing, improved safety structure and CVT transmission. There was also some chassis work between these years, but it was nothing to boast off.

With all that said, it’s safe to say that 2017 Honda CR-V will be the real delight. it’s not a face lift or some minor changes. This may not be the next generation but it holds high esteem for what it is going to introduce. This will be a new powerful engine, new styling threads and a whole lot other features. Plus there is not much info released about it, so we better wait.

At first sight, everyone will criticize the brand new 2017 Honda CR-V. We agree it’s not much to look at. But, if you are a family guy that wants something reliable with a punch, comfortable and won’t cost much, this may be for you.

Honda is known for testing its model before releasing, the same case is here. New CRV is all tested for safety and performance. It’s ready to serve your needs if you are prepared to compromise a bit on how it looks. Don’t forget, you are not going to pay a fortune for it.
