Consensus: All-new CR-V raises the bar for compact SUVs

 

All-new for 2017, the best-selling SUV in the country gets even better

A multiple Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award winner and Family Car favorite, the Honda CR-V is also the best-selling SUV in the country. It isn't the flashiest compact SUV out there, but it consistently shines in every other way. So how does Honda improve this practical, well-rounded, refined utility vehicle? Redesign it for 2017, with an even bigger interior, best-in-class fuel economy (non-hybrid), and more safety and tech features, without losing any of the comfort, convenience and value on which the CR-V built its reputation.

Driving It

The Honda CR-V is a pleasure on the daily drive, as detailed in our full review: "This new CR-V feels more dynamic in corners, but when really pushed is more apt to grudgingly obey than goad its driver for more. Rather, the CR-V continues to excel as a comfortable and competent commuter. In urban settings, we like its manageable size and brake-hold feature, while on the highway we appreciate its quiet and supple ride."

How Much?

To their credit, Honda's product and marketing teams make it easy to buy a CR-V, offering five trim levels and only a few elective options. A 2017 Honda CR-V LX with front-wheel drive can be purchased for just under $25,000, while those buyers insisting on everything -- including all-wheel drive, satellite navigation and leather -- will have ventured into the $35,000 range with the CR-V Touring. Build and price your own 2017 Honda CR-V to unlock its Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.

CR-V's Little Brother

If you want something a little smaller, the new Honda HR-V is the benchmark among subcompact SUVs.

One of Many Good Choices

The all-new 2017 Honda CR-V is an excellent choice, but the competition has never been better or more abundant. Be sure to check out our Compact SUV Buyer's Guide before signing on any dotted lines.
