With Consumer Reports confidently saying that the significantly evolved new generation of the Honda CR-V would still be a bestseller for the 2017 model year, many have been waiting for the Japanese carmaker to release the pricing details of this all-new SUV. Honda’s online configurator already includes setups for the new generation of the CR-V.
For those who really want a piece of CR-V action, you may own this next-generation SUV from Honda available at a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $24,045. This MSRP, however, does not include taxes, license and registration as well as the $900 destination charge. Of course, the final price is set by Honda’s dealerships.
At $24,045, a customer gets the Honda CR-V LX variant, a two-wheel drive (front wheel) model with power provided for by a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine. This 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine sends power – pegged at 184 hp of output at 6,400 rpm and 180 lb-ft of torque available at 3,900 rpm –to the front wheels through a Continuously Variable Transmission that is known for its fuel efficiency and smooth performance. The base Honda CR-V LX version rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and features a black cloth interior.
However, for customers who want the most premium CR-V there is, the Honda CR-V Touring model is recommended, starting at $32,395 MSRP. For the price of $32,395, a two-wheel drive (front wheel) version is provided, powered by a 1.5-liter Turbo 4-Cylinder Engine with Single Scroll Turbo and Internal Waste-gate.
Power from this engine – estimated at 190 hp of output at 5,600 rpm and 179 lb-ft of torque – is available between 2,000 and 5,000 rpm – is sent to the front wheels through a Continuously Variable Transmission. However, for customers who want a CR-V that could be driven in any road condition and weather, an all-wheel-drive system is available for an additional $1,300. Premium features like Honda Sensing and Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System are included as standard.
According to the online configurator, the 2017 Honda CR-V Touring could be finished in any of the wide array of available metallic and pearl exteriors colors – for no extra charge -- like Sandstorm, Molten Lava, Basque Red, Obsidian Blue, Dark Olive, Crystal Black, Gunmetal, Modern Steel, Lunar Silver and White Diamond. Available interior colors are black leather and ivory leather. As standard, the fifth-generation 2017 Honda CR-V Touring rides on 18-inch alloy wheels, although a more premium option -- 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels with tires -- could be availed for $2,231.
A handful of exterior accessories are available like body side molding ($225), crossbars ($249), door edge guards ($99), door visors ($184), expanded view mirror ($31) and fender accent trim ($105). Interior accessories available include: black all-season floor mats with high wall ($169), all-season floor mats with blue logo and high wall ($179), cargo liner ($199), cargo net ($50), cargo organizer ($78) and a cargo tray ($114). Back-up sensors -- four color-matched sensors that emit audible beeps that quicken as the CR-V approaches detected objects -- are also available at $528. Keep in mind that some accessories can’t be installed when another accessory is already fitted onto the vehicle.
As the online configurator shows, the most expensive Honda CR-V will cost $41,951 MSRP. When the $900 destination charge is added, it becomes $42,851.
