A few days after commencing production at its Ohio plant, Honda has announced pricing and trim levels for the revised CR-V, which is scheduled to hit U.S. dealers on December 21.
The best-selling compact crossover will be available in three grades, named LX, EX and Touring, with the base being powered by a 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder and the rest receiving the new 190 HP 1.5-liter turbo. Both units are available solely with a CVT transmission.
Base price for the LX is set at $24,925, $200 more than the outgoing model, whereas the EX trim that’s expected to be the most popular among buyers has been bumped up $580, to $27,575 and the top spec Touring is also up by $180, to $33,275. As with the 2016 MY version, front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive a $1,300 option.
From the EX trim level up, the 2017 CR-V comes with the Honda Sensing safety suite that comprises adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and lane-departure warning systems, as standard.
The new 1.5-liter turbo has been rated by the EPA at 28 mpg city and 34 mpg highway for the two-wheel drive versions, and one mpg lower for the AWD.
