While nothing has been confirmed about the upcoming 2017 Honda CR-V, we have some hints at what is expected of this crossover. Based on some photos of a test vehicle that have surfaced, the 2017 CR-V is likely to have a longer body and more passenger volume than the current model, along with an updated front end. Keep reading to find out what else we know about the changes for the 2017 Honda CR-V.

2017 Honda CR-V Updates

While it’s likely still early in the development cycle, the next Honda CR-V already looks to have some major updates. It appears that Honda has taken the current CR-V and added a longer door, stretching the wheelbase by several inches. This leads us to speculate that when the new model debuts, it’ll be available for Boulder and Denver customers in a five- or seven-passenger capacity. The 2017 CR-V is expected to use features from the 2016 Pilot, including its infotainment system and dashboard layout, and it may offer additional high-end features that we haven’t seen yet — but we’ll obviously have to wait for official word on that.

It also seems likely that Honda is making some serious changes to the front end of the 2017 CR-V, likely with new headlights and an updated grille. The rear also looks different, with two prominent exhausts, which could also mean an engine upgrade. Not only could there be a more powerful engine, but it’s possible that we could even see a hybrid option.

None of this official, though — but you can rest assured we’re keeping our ears open for any new 2017 Honda CR-V rumors and news.
