The Honda CR-V is a sporty crossover that has more than 20 years of production under its belt. However, do not assume that this model’s technology is dated. The engineers at Honda have equipped the 2017 CR-V with more than 50 technology features to keep passengers entertained while also keeping them safe.
A new car can have all the best technology in the cabin, but where it really matters is on the vehicle’s exterior. The 2017 Honda CR-V’s available Honda Sensing™ technology suite helps drivers stay aware of what is going on around them and intervenes when necessary. For instance, the Lane Keeping Assist System, or LKAS, uses technology embedded in the vehicle’s rear-view mirror to ensure that you stay in the center of your lane. If you start to stray without using the turn signal, the system will adjust to bring you back safely into the lane.* The Road Departure Mitigation System, or RDMS, will also take action when you face a situation where you are not only leaving a lane, but departing the road altogether.**
While you are driving on any roadway, it is essential to be aware of what is ahead, especially a stopped car or obstacle. If you are on the highway, the Adaptive Cruise Control System (ACC) can help ensure that there is always a certain amount of space between the you and the vehicle in front of you. If traffic slows, the system is also capable of Low-Speed Follow.***
No matter how long the drive, the 2017 Honda CR-V’s infotainment options are more than ready to keep you and your passengers happy. The EX, EX-L and Touring trims are equipped with a seven-inch Display Audio Touch-Screen to make all of the choices highly visible. You can pinch, touch and swipe to make selections and control the system. You can also choose to install HondaLink® on your smartphone to connect with equipped cars, or you can choose a model that is available with Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay™ to connect with your device’s own operating system. No matter which option you choose, the Honda CR-V can keep you connected to the music you love and to the best features of modern technology when you are behind the wheel.

*LKAS only assists driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane markings are identified without a turn signal in use and can only apply mild steering torque to assist. LKAS may not detect all lane markings; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
** RDMS only assists drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use and can only apply mild steering torque to assist driver in maintaining proper lane position and/or brake pressure to slow the vehicle’s departure from a detected lane. RDMS may not detect all lane markings; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
***Adaptive Cruise Control (AAC) cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. ACC should not be used in heavy traffic, poor weather, or on winding roads. ACC only includes a limited braking function; driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
