U.S. News says, “the 2017 Honda CR-V is fun to drive and has one of the best interiors in the compact SUV class.” That’s thanks in part to the long list of tech features that make everyday life a little easier and makes time behind the wheel comfortable and even a bit luxurious. Even the standard LX model has a robust collection of features including cruise control, rear-seat heater ducts, plus:
Automatic Climate Control: Everyone inside the CR-V will be comfortable, staying cool when the weather outside is hot or warm and toasty in the winter with automatic climate control.
Speed-Sensitive Volume Control: When the CR-V slows down, as in a merging situation or when maneuvering through a parking garage, the audio will automatically soften to a lower volume, eliminating distractions for the driver when concentration behind the wheel needs to be high.
Rear Window Defroster: No matter what the weather is like outside, drivers should be able to see clearly out of the back window. The rear window defroster in the CR-V makes a fogged-up rear window a thing of the past.
The standard LX model has even more technology geared toward keeping drivers connected while on the road and great entertainment features—whether you’re on a trip across the state or want to rock out while you’re dashing around the corner.
The CR-V has a commitment to safety, and its use of state-of-the-art technology demonstrates that commitment. Starting with the EX model, the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist technology becomes available and helps drivers drive better and safer on the road.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: With three different angles to choose from, including normal, wide, and top-down, this camera system allows drivers to check the surroundings of the CR-V and back out of tight spaces much more easily.
Collision Mitigation Braking System: This system detects when an oncoming vehicle or other object is dangerously approaching the CR-V and can engage the brakes in order to mitigate any impact.
Road Departure Mitigation System: Using sensors, this system can detect when the CR-V rolls over lane lines or road markings and can use the brakes and steering to keep the CR-V from going off the road.
Lane Keeping Assist System: If the CR-V rolls over lane lines or is swaying on the road without a signal change, this system can nudge the steering to bring the CR-V back to the center of the lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow: Drivers select a desired speed and a distance interval with the car ahead of them, and this system balances between them, keeping the CR-V naturally within the flow of traffic without any extra input from the driver.
Blind Spot Monitoring System with Cross Traffic Monitor: If a signal is indicated and there is activity in the driver’s blind spot, this system can alert the driver that it’s not safe to change lanes.
As you explore the upper trim levels, drivers can expect to find upgrades to technology features in the LX model or elaborations and additions:
