Honda announces all new 2017 CR-V

Honda’s stylish, all-new CR-V SUV is now available. Complete with a new all-turbo engine and 5 or 7 seat availability, it offers unparalleled levels of refinement, interior quietness and ride comfort. The latest in a long line of successful CR-V vehicles, it’s the ultimate in style and quality.

New styling, new engine and new technologies

Boasting new styling and a more spacious, versatile and quality interior, the new model packs a punch with a host of new features and technologies designed to enhance connectivity, comfort and convenience.

Chief among which is a state of the art VTEC Turbo engine mated to Honda’s CTV transmission. Available for the very first time, it delivers a whopping 140 kW of power and 240 Nm of torque. High efficiency automatic transmission is also standard across the range.

Multi-seating and front and all-wheel drive options for Australian buyers

Australian buyers are spoilt for choice with spacious 5 or 7 seat variants available for the first time, along with front and all-wheel drive options.

A fresh new look and greater visual appeal

The new model’s fresh new look is turning heads for all the right reasons. Crisper and sharper front-end design elements, aggressive stylised headlights surrounded by wing-shaped LED DRLs and wide mudguards give a greater visual appeal, while a long bonnet, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and dual exhausts create a more sophisticated appearance that’s sure to appeal across the market.

Already making waves, the CR-V’s a huge hit in the USA, most recently receiving acclaim in the Wards Auto 10 Best Interiors Awards.

As Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins said: “For Australia, the Honda CR-V will be a significant player in the medium SUV segment. As well as the VTEC Turbo engine line-up across the range, family buyers will also appreciate the versatility afforded by being able to choose between five, or seven seat models. Our customers have been asking for this level of versatility and now we’ll deliver it.”

Pricing and specifications will be released in July when the new model goes on sale.
