The 2017 Honda CR-V has a starting MSRP of $24,045 and earns up to 32 mpg on the highway

The 2017 Honda CR-V equipped with available LED headlights and Honda Sensing safety technologies has earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistance technologies comes standard on EX and higher trims, and earned the CR-V a “Superior” rating for frontal crash prevention. The best-selling SUV also earned a top rating of “Good” in five IIHS crash test modes, including the stringent small overlap frontal crash test, as well as an “acceptable” rating for its headlights.

To receive the coveted Top Safety Pick+ award, a vehicle must earn a “Good” rating in the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests; feature an available front crash prevention system rated either “Advanced” or “Superior”; and be equipped with headlights that earn a score of “Acceptable” or “Good.”
