Honda CR-V

Customers in Chicago and Barrington have been enjoying the advanced features and capable performance of the 2017 Honda CR-V, but what do the critics think? The automotive press has given this crossover a warm reception, noting its power, design, and active safety features. If you’re shopping for a new vehicle in this class, turn to Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake to see how this crossover has been received.

All-Around Performance

One area the critics have praised is just how well-rounded the new CR-V is. Jalopnik writer William Clavey notes that, “Honda took all of its lovable traits; versatility, competency, reliability, and affability, and cranked them all to up 11.” He also mentions that the CR-V has received a longer wheelbase, and it’s wider and taller than previous versions. Despite that increase in size, it still offers exciting performance through a new 1.5L turbocharged engine that puts out 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque.

Thrilling Design

Josh Sadlier from Edmunds noticed all the work Honda has put into restyling the 2017 CR-V. He writes, “The styling has gone from anonymous to awesome, led by an aggressive new front fascia, reshaped rear windows and sculpted haunches that convey a surprising muscularity.” In addition, Honda has redesigned the dashboard and infotainment controls. You even receive more legroom for more interior comfort.

Assured Safety

When it comes to safety, the Honda CR-V has you covered. It’s active safety features have caught the eye of many reviewers, and Kelley Blue Book notes, “Honda Sensing bundles potentially life-saving, accident-avoiding features such as collision-mitigation braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring (which replaces the LaneWatch system).” If you value advanced safety features in a new crossover, Honda Sensing can meet your needs.
