The 2017 Honda CR-V Utility Features

  • 2017 Honda CR-V

    The 2017 Honda CR-V has a long list of utility features that make it a formidable presence on the road and can tackle just about any driving situation. From power and capability to features inside that optimize the CR-V’s performance and driving experience, the utility features and engineering components make the CR-V a crossover that can really go the distance.

Compact Size, Big Capability

The 2017 Honda CR-V received a makeover this year that makes one of the most popular crossover SUVs in America even better than before. While its size and stance on the road is still compact, making it an expert at navigating tight spaces, it is also capable of more than many of its competitors. From towing more to providing more horsepower to an available and refined AWD system that makes for smooth sailing even in the toughest road conditions, the CR-V brings a lot to the table in terms of utility.

The standard LX CR-V sees a 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine under the hood that produces up to 184 hp @ 6,400 rpm and 180 lb-ft of torque @ 3,900 rpm. For drivers who want even more oomph, the EX, EX-L, and Touring models get an upgraded and turbocharged engine under the hood that produces up to 190 hp @ 5,600 rpm and 179 lb-ft of torque @ 2,000-5,000 rpm.

Utility Features

Some utility features that you’ll find inside the CR-V throughout the trim levels include:


2017 Honda CR-V Real Time AWD

Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System – Available as an option on all of the CR-V trim levels, this system allows the CR-V to automatically switch into AWD mode, offering the most stability, traction, and control whether you’re driving over icy, slippery, muddy roads, turns, or gravel.

Hill Start Assist – Coming standard on the CR-V, Hill Start Assist keeps the CR-V stationary when it is stopped on a hill in the interval of time when the driver moves his or her foot from the brake to the gas.

Eco Assist System – Drivers benefit from the guidance of the Eco Assist System to help them develop more efficient driving techniques. Visual cues communicate when you’re operating the CR-V at the optimal levels and when you are expending unnecessary energy, making it easy to correct and get the most out of your CR-V.

2017 Honda CR-V

All-Season Tires and Wheels – All season tires can tackle the roads all year long. The LX model sees 17-inch alloy wheels as the standard while the EX, EX-L, and Touring models all get 18-inch alloy wheels.

2017 Honda CR-V Cargo Area Storage

Cargo Space / Seat Configurations

The CR-V offers several different seating configurations to accommodate passengers, cargo, or both. With all the seats intact, the CR-V can accommodate five passengers with a total passenger volume measuring at 105.9 cubic feet in the entry-level LX model.

With the rear seats at a 60/40 split that can be folded flat, the cargo space can balloon to a maximum volume of 75.8 cubic feet. That is remarkably spacious for a compact crossover SUV. Even with the rear seats up, the cargo space in the back still offers up plenty of room for groceries, suitcases, or whatever you might need with a total volume measuring at 39.2 cubic feet.

Towing Capacity

With any of the models of the CR-V, drivers can rest assured that they can haul and tow anything they need with a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. So hook up the camper, the trailer, or the boat to the back of the CR-V and hit the road!

Ground Clearance

With the 2WD version of the CR-V, the ground clearance measures at 7.8 inches. For drivers who choose the AWD version, that number jumps, and as a review in Car and Driver states, “Its 8.2 inches of ground clearance with all-wheel drive mean navigating unmapped roads is possible.”

Roof Rails

Roof rails are available as an accessory or come standard on the top-of-the-line Touring model. Fasten bikes, kayaks, skis, and more up top, freeing up even more cargo and passenger space inside.
