2017 Honda CR-V Florence SC
Though more and more crossovers are heading to dealerships, it’s hard to deny the value of larger models like the 2017 Honda CR-V, available here in Florence SC at Cale Yarborough Honda. Though fuel economy figures remain relatively similar for options like this CR-V, a compact SUV, you’ll find yourself with a whole lot more space and capability than if you opt for a smaller option. For those looking for a capable model when it comes time for camping or kayaking grips, it’s hard to beat the CR-V.
So what is it that the 2017 Honda CR-V has that other options don’t? It’s not necessarily an issue of offering different features or specs, but rather a solid combination of elements that combine to make it a top pick when it comes to roominess, capability and its overall driving experience. Add on an impressive reputation for quality, and the CR-V takes its place at the top of its segment because it offers everything shoppers want, with the security of knowing the model will last day after day.
When it comes to power, the 2017 Honda CR-V is one of the top choices thanks to its standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that offers up 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. A turbocharged engine is an available upgrade this year, offering 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque to higher trims.
Standard features for the base, LX, trim level include LED DRLs, taillights, turn signals and brake lights, automatic A/C, cruise control, a 4-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, a rearview camera and active noise cancellation. Available highlights include heated front seats, remote start and Honda Sensing features.
The 2017 Honda CR-V has grown for 2017, adding on 1.8 cubic feet to the interior – 105.9 cubic feet from 104.1 cubic feet – and 2 cubic feet to the cargo area, providing 39.2 cubic feet with the rear seats upright. This means more room for occupants while adding more room for gear at the same time.
What makes the 2017 Honda CR-V the top choice in its segment?
We understand that many people aren’t held to just one brand when it comes to buying the ideal vehicle, so why might you choose the 2017 Honda CR-V instead of picking from other options? The simple answer is that Honda offers a bit of everything to create a complete package within the compact SUV segment. The model is roomier than most, and has increased that margin by making this year even bigger.
Power output has always been more impressive in the CR-V, but a new turbocharged engine allows the vehicle to gain even more ground, while also surpassing its fuel economy figures from previous model years. This means a more spirited drive, without paying more at the pump. You still get the option to choose between the front- or all-wheel drive options, so that you aren’t sacrificing when it comes to getting just the type of vehicle you’re looking for.
What else is there to consider when shopping for an SUV? Towing figures remain the same, with a properly equipped CR-V towing as much as 1,500 pounds. Safety features also remain competitive, with a wide range of driver’s assistance options available in EX and higher trim levels.
