DESIGN
The fifth-generation CR-V exterior offers sporty and innovative styling to match its comfortable and spacious interior, while also providing maximum utility value for a wide range of users. Slightly longer, wider and taller than the previous-generation CR-V, the new model is the ideal size to lead the compact SUV segment.

 
Defining design elements that add strength and vigour to the all-new CR-V are athletic wheel arches, a long hood with aggressive aerodynamic front-end detailing, a short rear overhang, and increased ground clearance. The design also features longer wheelbase that improves rear-seat roominess and ride quality.
 
ENGINE
For the first time ever, the CR-V is offered with a turbocharged 1.5-litre DOHC Direct-Injected inline-4 engine, closely related to the 1.5-litre VTEC TURBO offered in all-new Honda CR-V. The CR-V’s 1.5-litre VTEC TURBO engine has key enhancements and developments for more horsepower and torque.
 
With maximum power output of 142 kW @ 5,600 rpm and maximum 243 Nm @ 2,000 - 5000 rpm of torque, this CR-V is the most powerful production example of this engine family to date.

Several features combine to create the CR-V 1.5-liter turbo’s increased performance compared to CR-V models that are powered by this same engine family. A reduction in compression ratio combines with a higher maximum turbo boost pressure – made possible by a new turbocharger impeller design and more free-flowing intake and exhaust systems – to net a substantial gain in horsepower and torque.

EXTERIOR
Advancing the CR-V’s exterior with a dynamic and exciting new design, the fifth-generation CR-V builds strongly on the previous four generations. Like those vehicles, the shape of the new CR-V is utility oriented, providing the roominess, flexible storage and off-highway capabilities that are useful for so many people. The new CR-V heads in a fresh new direction with aggressive new attitude, thanks to crisper and sharper front-end design elements, aggressive stylized headlights surrounded by a wing-shaped LED DRL, and wide, muscular fenders. The long hood, longer wheelbase, short rear overhang and dual exhaust outlets give the new CR-V an upscale presence. The all-new CR-V’s exterior lighting adopts Honda signature’s LED DRLs and Turn signals in both the front and rear which creates an awareness of the vehicle’s width. It represents sophisticated and modern design with advanced full LED headlights, LED turn lights for all grades and LED tail & brake lights.

INTERIOR
The interior is a marriage of advanced integrated technology and finest materials. For superior rear passenger comfort, 2-position reclining seatbacks and a nearly flat floor under front seats offers a new level of passenger comfort. The all-new one-motion dive-down 60/40 spilt rear seat design creates incredible cargo space.

In typical Honda fashion, the 5th generation CR-V is built on a foundation of smart design, comfortable fit and intuitive controls. Upscale amenities, premium accents and available leather seating help give the CR-V a more luxurious feel than ever before. By stretching the wheelbase, the CR-V offers impressive space and comfort, particularly in the spacious rear seating area, which has gained more than 50 mm of additional legroom.

A roof spaciousness is improved with inner slide panorama.

The panorama roof can be operated in 3 different modes
1. Tilt mode – Back edge of glass is moved upward for ventilation
2. Glass mode – Front side of glass is moved forward for ventilation and to let in the light (rear side is fixed)
3. Shade mode – Shade is moved forward or backward to let in the light

To maximize convenience and utility, the CR-V’s interior has a wide range of storage features including the newly designed center console With the CR-V’s Electric Parking Brake, there’s no need for a traditional manual parking brake handle on the center console, which opens up a considerable amount of space.

The cup holder is arranged in a position to which a driver’s hand naturally reaches without changing the direction of eyes during driving. Cup holder can accommodate various size or cup and mug. Two large cupholders are positioned within convenient reach of the driver and front passenger.

Large console with large article storing can be arranged by a removable tray.

Topped with a comfortable padded, sliding, flip-up center armrest, the generously sized console now has 3 distinct internal configurations, made possible by a tray that can be repositioned as desired.

Rear Cooler System is installed for the comfort of 2nd and 3rd row passenger throughout the journey. Position air conditioning outlets and operation switches on the roof face above the head space area of the 2nd row seats. The system can be adjusted 3 steps for the fan strength.

TECHNOLOGY
Equipped with 7-inch Display Audio Touchscreen, the intuitive interface system can be controlled via the touch screen or via illuminated steering-wheel mounted controls which includes a new touchpad control or via voice commands from the steering-wheel-mounted talk button. The 7-inch touchscreen is a special high-contrast, high definition IPS display with a high viewing angle for better legibility. In the CR-V, the system offers 180 watts of power output divided among 6 speakers: four 6.7-inch full range speakers, one in each door, and two 1.5-inch tweeters near the A-pillars.

New in the CR-V is the power tailgate where it can be operated via the remote key fob or from a button on the driver’s door panel. With the programmable height feature, it is customizable for drivers of all sizes. In all CR-V models, a 12-volt power outlet is positioned at the base of the center stack near an open storage tray. More USB charging ports are positioned on the rear of the center console for use by rear seat passengers.
The all-new CR-V packs a whole suite of innovations that aids the driver.
 
SAFETY
Making its debut is the Driver Attention Monitor where it alerts the driver to take break when the driver becomes inattentive with a coffee cup icon. Other features such as Walk Away Auto Lock, Multi-angle Rear-view Camera and LaneWatch™* System always come in handy.

The Walk Away Door Lock feature automatically locks (1) when the driver leaves the vehicle; (2) when the key holder’s distance from the vehicle exceeds 6.5 feet for 2 seconds; and (3) when no other key is detected inside the vehicle. An audible tone sounds and the hazard lights flash to confirm that the vehicle has locked. The Walk Away Door Lock feature is programmable, and may be turned on or off as the driver prefers.

Making its Honda debut on the 2017 CR-V, Driving Attention Monitor is developed to detect reduced attention that is hard to notice by the driver him/herself, for dozing off or resulting in accidents from fatigue, and prompt the driver to take early break.

When driving on highways or on arterial roads, driver attention level is estimated from the amount of steering input, and outputs information according to the estimated status (message, sound, steering vibration) On highway and arterial roads, the Driver Attention Monitor continually monitors and assesses driver behaviour behind the wheel to help determine if the driver is becoming inattentive – and then if so, warn the driver to take a break. The system uses input from the Electric Power Steering (EPS) to measure both the frequency and severity of the driver’s steering inputs to gauge their level of awareness with four gradients.

When the Driver Attention Monitor is activated, the driver is first alerted by a coffee cup icon and a 4-level bar graph that is displayed on the MID below the speedometer and tachometer. The bar graph indicates full attention with 4 white bar elements are illuminated. As the driver attention drops, fewer and fewer bars are illuminated. When the number of bars drops to two, a message inviting the driver to take a break is illuminated. If the driver continues driving and the graph drops to the lowest level of one bar, a beeper sounds and the steering wheel vibrates, prompting the driver to pay closer attention or take a rest break. With Honda LaneWatch™* System, you can expand your side horizons. Every time you activate the left-turn signal before changing lanes, a small camera on the passenger side will display an image of what’s in the blind spot to the left of the car on a 7-inch screen.

Updated with Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ results in an increase in engine torque that can be sent to rear wheel under high degree of 4-wheel-drive sophistication in rain, dirt roads and dry pavement. Working in cooperation with Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA) and the Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS), the system further supports high fuel efficiency and all-around drivability at all speeds when required. With advanced compatibility engineering™ (ACE™) body, composed of highly efficient energy-absorbing main frame, it disperses collision forces over larger frontal area and reduces the chance of deformation of the passenger compartment. Based on Honda internal test data, the fifth-generation CR-V is the most aerodynamically efficient vehicle in its class.
*Available for 7-seater variant only.

FELS INFORMATION
The all-new Honda CR-V environmental performance is geared to set a new standard in its competitive class. Under LTA’s FELS system, the CR-V is expected to achieve fuel economy of 7.0/100km and a CO2 output of 160g/km for 5 seater CR-V and 7.3/100km and a CO2 output of 166g/km for 7 seater CR-V.

COLOURS
