Shortly after the 2016 Honda CR-V was released, rumors about the 2018 model year begin to circulate. A camouflaged version of the CR-V was spotted in the streets, and many people assumed it was the next-generation CR-V that might be coming to the 2018 model year.

What’s new in the 5th-generation Honda CR-V?
There are plenty of changes coming to the new Honda CR-V as it enters its fifth generation, not the least of which is its new exterior design. Bringing aggression and attitude to the midsize crossover, the CR-V adopts a new front end with sleek new design cues around the entire vehicle. But design changes aren’t the only updates coming to the 5th-genereation Honda CR-V.
The 2017 model will be the first CR-V to ever offer a turbocharged engine, thanks to its new 1.5L 4-cylinder powertrain that will not only deliver 190 horsepower, but Honda predicts it will deliver class-leading fuel efficiency as well. A new display audio screen offers better entertainment features and a redesigned, premium interior cabin offers more space and versatility than ever before.
If you think you might be interested in testing out one of the all-new, 5th-generation 2017 Honda CR-V, then make sure you schedule an early test drive so that you can be among the first to get behind the wheel when it arrives this winter.
