The fifth-generation CR-V will hit dealers on Dec. 21.PHOTO GALLERY: 2017 Honda CR-V

Honda’s redesigned 2017 CR-V will go on sale next month with a price tag remarkably similar to the outgoing model.

The 5th-generation CR-V will hit dealers on Dec. 21 with a starting price of $24,925 for the base LX model, a $200 increase over the older 2016 version. The EX trim -- expected to be Honda’s most popular with 30 percent of CR-V sales -- will start at $27,575, up $580 from before.

A fully loaded Touring edition will be $33,275, a jump of just $180 over its predecessor. As with the prior generation, front-wheel-drive is standard, while all-wheel-drive will be a $1,300 option.

All prices include $880 destination for the 2017 CR-V. The CR-V is the top-selling compact crossover in the U.S., with deliveries rising 1.8 percent this year to 293,799 through October.

The 2017 CR-V will ride into showrooms with a variety of updates under its reformed skin. A 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine will be standard on all but the LX models, and it will make 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. A CVT is standard on all models.
Honda expects 75% of CR-V buyers to opt for the EX, EX-L, EX-L with navigation and Touring trim levels. In addition to the new powertrain -- which it shares with the Civic -- CR-Vs in EX and higher trim level will come standard with Honda Sensing, a suite of safety technology that includes pre-collision braking, lane-departure warning and mitigation and adaptive cruise control.

These additions help Honda target a Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the IIHS and an NCAP 5-star overall score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

EPA ratings are also improved, reflecting the use of the turbo engine. 2-wheel-drive models with the turbocharged engine see a two-mile-per-gallon increase over the previous generation for both city and highway efficiency. For 2017, the turbo models are rated at 28 mpg city, 34 mpg highway. Adding all-wheel-drive knocks off 1 mpg for each rating.

In addition to sharing the Civic’s powertrain, the 2017 CR-V also rides on the same modular chassis as the current Civic. It will also underpin the next-generation Accord set to debut in 2017.

those wheels....
Are those 'touch' buttons on the steering wheel? That was one thing I didn't like in the HR-V, was the full touch screen, no knobs/buttons at all.

From other photos online, I think those are physical buttons on the steering wheel (i.e. you can press down on them and they move)...if that's what you are asking. May be someone else can confirm..

Are you talking about the center console touch screen? I think that's a volume/power knob on the left? Other key controls such as A/C, heated seats, and heated mirrors all have physical buttons.

Right, what looks like a volume control on the steering wheel doesn't look like a 'button' on the picture above.
For the center screen, the HR-V I test drove did not have a separate volume/power knob. Was all touch screen buttons, really didn't like it.

Yes, normal buttons. Also there's a real volume knob as well. Now if only they can pull the stupid dual screen shit setup out of their other cars.

Ya, I think going forward this is (the new CR-V) the layout that Honda will be using (i.e. next gen Accord, Odyssey). Ridgeline, Pilot, Civic, new CR-V, HR-V etc are all using the single screen setup.

And I'm guessing volume knob will be added to cars that don't already have it.

I am just glad they did not go with the dual screen setup.

For some reason the people at Honda are a lot more logical than the people at Acura.

I think I read somewhere that they got enough complaints about the full-touch center screen that they added back the volume knob.
Overall, I like it.

This is why I continue to not see the point in Acura in general. Make it a trim level and call it good...or not because they are more or less the same car anyway. There's not a big enough difference between Honda and Acura anymore to justify the price difference.

I agree and for the large part Hondas have better interior and exterior designs than comparable Acuras.

This is exactly why the sales of Acura sedans are tanking. The SUV's are holding its own because the MDX is actually a very nice SUV while the RDX has proper V6 power.

And this is also why Acura introduced the Precision Concept stuff. Whatever they have now is outdated and not good enough. The Precision Concept is to show that they are doing something about it. The main concern is that Acura needs those changes asap.

The problem is, the precision concept isn't an actual model. The MDX facelift is underwhelming. We need to see a full generational update to see the actual fruits of the concept.

Ya, I'd imagine that's the best way to get the message across to Acura. Once enough people move away from them, they will have to act.

They are bound by the status quo, whatever is popular at the time WILL influence them. It's like math class, not like art class. Too much riding on every little decision, so whatever is proven by popularity and sales is what they are going to do. Can't please everybody,

Problem is is they are having a hard time pleasing anybody. They lack the appendages to attempt to lead. They take too much time trying to figure out what will sell and by time they get it out there its outdated. They need to think ahead, bring it out ahead, and they need to not take so long in between design to reality.

I think the pictures looked better than the actual car but still much improved over the previous Gen.

Saw a 2017 EX-L at dealer yesterday next to a 2016. Nice redesign.
It's very similar to the 2016 but more muscular and aggressive in it's lines.
I like the interior alot more and the rear C pillar got sharpened up some.

You can have it with or without AWD.

Honda unveiled the CR-V Hybrid for European markets a little over a year ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but that was only a prototype. Fast forward to today, the production-ready version is making its online debut ahead of next week’s Paris Motor Show where the electrified SUV is going to be on display. Not that it comes as a big surprise, but the final version looks virtually the same as the 2017 version.

Honda has also been kind enough to reveal the technical specifications of the Euro-spec CR-V Hybrid, which will be available with either a front-wheel-drive layout or a grippy AWD setup. Power comes from a four-cylinder 2.0-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine working together with an electric motor to deliver a combined output of 181 horsepower (135 kilowatts) and a generous torque of 315 Newton-meters (232 pound-feet).

As you would come to expect, the FWD version is a bit more economical than its all-paw equivalent. In the outgoing New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), the electrified Honda CR-V with a FWD layout has an average fuel consumption of 5.3 liters / 100 km equating to 120 g/km of CO2 emissions. Go for the AWD-equipped version and it will rise to 5.5 liters / 100 km and 126 g/km.

When used in the city, the SUV will automatically switch between Hybrid Drive and EV drive to ensure maximum efficiency. The former refers to when the combustion engine powers a second motor/generator to supplement electrical energy from the battery pack while the latter is when the lithium-ion battery pack feeds the electric propulsion motor to drive the wheels. There’s also an Engine Drive mode during which the gasoline engine powers the wheels.

Honda mentions that at a moderate cruise, the CR-V Hybrid will run in the aforementioned EV Drive mode for more than 50 percent of the time. At higher speeds, EV Drive is activated for roughly one third of the time. It’s all thanks to what the automaker refers to as the i-MMD technology smart enough to decide on its own when it’s time to switch between the available modes.

Honda will begin taking orders in Europe for the CR-V Hybrid next month when it will bring it to the Paris Motor Show starting October 2 to join the updated HR-V and a Civic Type R “ArtCar Manga.”

Honda appears to be having problems with its bread and butter crossover. Some owners of 2017 and 2018 CR-Vs equipped with the new 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 have been reporting stalling and reduced power output, resulting in a top speed of 20 mph.

Consumer Reports has confirmed several instances of this problem, and there are numerous complaints via online forums and social media. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has also confirmed reports with CR of gasoline scents in the passenger compartment and dilution of engine oil with gas. NHTSA did not confirm any complaints about stalling or loss of engine power.

The problem appears to stem from unburned fuel finding its way into the engine’s lubrication system. Honda released an official statement that confirmed that they are aware of the issue and that they are working on a solution. According to the statement, the fix should be ready by mid-November and will be covered under warranty. Honda will also be applying the fix to all 2019 CR-Vs.


The complaints from owners began in 2017. Many of the reports have originated in areas with cold weather but have not been exclusive to those climates. Experts have said the most likely culprits are the design of the fuel injectors or a lack of heat in the cylinder resulting in incomplete vaporization of the fuel. Excess fuel in the combustion chamber and oil system can dilute the oil’s lubricity, which could result significant internal damage to the motor.

According to CR and NHTSA, the only consistent fix Honda has presented to date is offering owners frequent free oil changes. Some cars have had their fuel injectors and spark plugs replaced. Though Honda has confirmed the issue, the company has not officially said what the repair will be.

Honda did issue a service bulletin for 380,000 CR-Vs and some Civic models in China for a similar problem. The recall instructed owners to take their vehicles to the dealer to address “an inappropriate fuel-injection setting” that caused unburnt fuel to seep into the engine’s oil at temperatures of -4° F and below, especially in vehicles were used for short trips. The U.S. spec CR-V and Civic do share the 1.5-liter turbo engine, but with different outputs, boost pressures and fuel injection mapping. It is not likely that Honda will issue a recall for the problem in the U.S. -- the notice that Honda sent out in China was deemed a “safety recall”, but that term does not carry the same connotation as it does in North America.

In the meantime, if you have a 2017 or 2018 Honda CR-V with a 1.5 turbo engine, you should check your oil frequently and watch for warning signs including high oil level and/or a fuel smell in the oil or in the cabin. Other signs include heaters that don’t work well or at all in cold weather and the aforementioned stalling and low power output.

Going to need to watch this closely. As it gets colder, this is more concerning. Mid-November is starting to get to that pretty cold period. Let's hope it's sooner rather than later.

So far no gas smells. I will check the oil as well.

Otherwise, this little engine is fantastic.

I mentioned it somewhere several weeks back, but it was time for the wife to upgrade from her '07 Civic Coupe. Always had the CR-V on the radar and we bought a '18 AWD Touring last month. It's really great. And even I love driving it. And when I get back into my car, it feels like a race car compared to it.

Haven't had an opportunity to take pictures yet but I eventually will. The tech on it is amazing. And the LED headlights & taillights look great.

Nice, must've missed that one.
If we didn't use the 3rd row fairly regularly, a CRV would probably be on the list for an eventual Flex replacement.
