    Next-gen-2017-Honda-CR-V-Rendering-1024x768. 2017-rdx-exterior-with-advance-package-in-lunar-silver-metallic-hanger-2. Does anyone know if this is the 2017 CR-V model?? I was expecting a more extreme design similar to Acura RDX 2017 (front face) but with the CR-V engine choices? I wish they did, at least for Europe. Maybe the Japanese Honda headquarters follow the 5 years rule, so a major design change will take place on year 2019. It is not a breath taking design though it looks better.

    This looks like a photoshop of the current CR-V which HR-V's face plastered on.
    I don;t think Honda will bring Acura's styling to CR-V as that will be too radical for Honda brand.

    Look I just made a CR-V and if this comes over I am sure it will look nice and many people will buy it.
    2017 CRV.

    I like yours better :Smile:. Thanks for the correction. I agree that Acura design is too much radial/curved for the CR-V brand.

    Your design is even better than current CR-V and Acura 2017. Well done.

    You have a winner , since I love Honda ridgeline front design and Honda pilot roof/windows/rear box design. Excellent. This design will definitely make me consider buying it. This photo should be sent to Honda headquarters.

    Thanks for sharing the spy photos. I did see them on other sites, however I do believe that legend-ary has provided a much better design. Correct a 7 seater will be offered, due to respective competition offerings (e.g Hyundai Santa-Fe and VW tiguan).

    If you look at my first attachment when I started the thread you will see that it is exactly the same as the spy photos though the mask was removed. Have a look.

    That is why I asked if the photo I enclosed was the final CR-V design 2018.

    It'd hard to tell from a render and the spy photos, but given that they are camouflaged and not a mule, I would say they are final design.

    The rear light clusters look odd to me, that would be my only issue with it, without seeing it in the flesh.

    I'd like to see something a bit more radical for the next CR-V both in terms of styling and technology.

    A 2.5 litre petrol / hybrid with CVT gearbox perhaps?

    They need to keep the price under control too IMHO. Even the current version is driving into territory that I'm not convinced it merits...

    I am not sure about CVT. Automatic gear box is much better with AWD (high torque at low speeds), at least this is my perception, and cannot change. :Smile:

    Here are more photos of 2017 CR-V. It looks much better than the current version (from this angle). Honda give an option of an AWD with lockers front or rear and I will upgrade for sure (with active torque vectoring please), and some higher ground clearance for the cross-pro version :Smile:.

    There are also rumors that the Japanese are planning to make the hybrid compact SUV which in this time of age isn’t impossible. According to speculations new CR-V will be offered with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain made up of a 2.0L gasoline-burning 4 cylinder engine and at least two electric motors. But if this doesn’t pan out for Japanese you can expect from them, with big certainty to make this model year much more fuel efficient and earth friendly.

    Also I was reading about CVT technology but I hope this will not be offered in the European market or at least with the AWD version as this will put me off in purchasing a Honda CR-V 5th Generation. I would prefer the 9 speed ZF automatic transmission but with the fix applied. (recall problems due to sensor miss-behaviour).

    Read it again: Honda Pilot and Acura TLX are affected. CR-V is unaffected.
