The debut of the 2017 Honda CR-V was in October, and now you can find this vehicle on sale in the USA. The LX trim with an FWD is the least expensive model, and its starting price is $24,045.
The previous generation was $300 cheaper, but the new generation brings so much more to the table. Some of the competitors such as Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4 cost $23,820 and $24,910 respectively. Two more cars that we need to mention are Ford Escape that starts at $23,600 and Subaru Forester which is even cheaper, and you can get one for $22,595. If you want to take an AWD version, you would have to add $1,300 to the starting price. The range-topping CR-V costs $33,695 and power is delivered to all four wheels for this one as a standard, while the equipment in this Touring model is best in the lineup.
Just for the record, more than 4 million CR-Vs were sold in 2014 and 2015, having made this vehicle reach the top of the sales list in North America. The base trim is offered with 2.4-liter I4 unit that produces 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque while returning 26/32/28 mpg. The EX and higher trims are equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine, which is rated at 28/34/30 mpg. This unit delivers 190 horsepower and respectable 179 lb-ft of torque.
The cabin of the new CR-V is admirably quiet, and it is the best in the class. According to the Japanese automaker in order to assemble the CR-V for the North American market, they used local and globally sourced parts.
