It has Some Seriously Sharp Style

Utilizing sharp front-end design elements, Honda creates a truly stylized vehicle. The LED running lights are wing-like. It has wide fender lines, a long hood and dual exhaust tips.

Add in the Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate, and you have a truly stunning vehicle.

The 2017 CR-V features a New Turbo Motor that Truly Performs
