Honda unveiled the 2017 CR-V earlier this month, which has been completely redesigned and re-engineered as it enters its fifth generation. Recently, Honda USA released two videos that highlight just some of the features that are available on the popular nameplate.

In one of the videos, we are introduced to some of the design cues that are on the SUV, starting with those sleek, full-LED headlamps at the front, part of a bold new iteration of Honda’s Solid Wing Face. We also get to see the model’s restyled rear taillights and hands-free powered liftgate in operation.

Elsewhere, there’s the 1.5 litre turbocharged engine under the hood – a first for the CR-V. The direct-injected DOHC unit outputs 190 hp at 5,600 rpm and 243 Nm of torque between 2,000 to 5,000 rpm, making it more powerful compared to the unit found in the Civic FC.

As for the interior, the CR-V is now fitted with improved materials to provide a more premium feel that compliments the revamped cabin. We also get to see glimpses of the car’s touchscreen infotainment system (now featuring a volume knob), as well as the instrument cluster.

The latter features a full-colour LCD screen for the rev counter, speedometer and multi-info display, similar to the Civic FC. The host in the video also emphasises the increased legroom, courtesy of the CR-V now longer wheelbase – 2,660 mm vs 2,620 mm.

He also highlights one of the practical features found inside the cabin – dual USB charging ports – with an output of 2.5 A each, perfect for charging your tablets or smartphones.
