Honda's all-new CR-V crossover will hit dealers by the end of December with a lot more value than the outgoing model—but without a major price increase.
The entry-level front-wheel drive CR-V LX sees its bottom line increase by just $200, to $24,945 including a mandatory $900 destination charge. At the opposite end of the spectrum sits the CR-V Touring with optional all-wheel drive at $34,595.

Honda offers five different build configurations for the 2017 CR-V, not including color combinations or the choice between front- or all-wheel drive. That makes shopping for a CR-V pretty easy, even if there's limited potential for custom-tailoring one to your personal desires.
2017 Honda CR-V Touring
Here's a look at the build walk for the 2017 Honda CR-V.
The entry-level CR-V LX ($24,945) includes a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and a CVT, plus 17-inch alloy wheels, LED running lamps, automatic climate control, cruise control, a 4-speaker audio system, a backup camera, power windows and locks, keyless entry, and Bluetooth streaming audio.
From there, the CR-V EX ($27,595) adds a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that's a little more powerful and a little more fuel efficient, as well as 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, automatic headlamps, heated mirrors, a proximity key with push-button start, remote start, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a power moonroof, an additional USB port, and a 12-way power driver's seat. CR-V EX models, and all higher trim levels, also include the automaker's Honda Sensing suite of safety tech as standard:
- Automatic emergency braking
- Adaptive cruise control
- Lane departure warning
- And lane keep assist, which nudges the vehicle back into its lane if it begins to drift
Those who want leather seats can opt up to the EX-L ($30,095), which also includes a power tailgate, a power passenger's seat, memory for the driver's seat, a Homelink garage door opener, an upgraded audio system, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
Navigation is a $1,000 option on the EX-L; it's the only stand-alone option on the CR-V aside from some dealer-installed accessories like rubber floor mats and mudflats available on all trim levels.
The range-topping Touring ($33,295) adds to the EX-L its own wheel design, a special body kit, side roof rails (crossbars are a dealer-installed item), automatic windshield wipers, LED headlamps, a hands-free power tailgate, and a 330-watt stereo with a subwoofer.
On all models, all-wheel drive adds an additional $1,300.
