New, 2017 Honda CR-V Offers Crisp Design, Promises the Best




The brand new, fifth-generation Honda CR-V is here and it appears to have all the goods to reinforce its position as the best-selling crossover in North America.

Whereas the previous CR-V had a polarizing design that looked disproportional from certain angles, especially the side profile, the latest model features a crip, more cohesive and aerodynamic sheetmetal that borrows styling cues from other new Honda’s like the smaller HR-V crossover and tenth-gen Civic.

The front end, in particular, is defined by a chromed grille that extends into a pair of angular headlights with LED daytime running lights, while the rear end features tail lamps that are almost look there were sourced from Volvo.

Inside, the new CR-V treats driver and passengers to a more inviting, comfortable and high-tech interior with more room and a seven-inch touch screen that runs the latest generation of Honda’s infotainment system, which itself is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The list of options includes such convenience features as a remote engine starter, dual-zone climate controls, USB charging ports for the rear passengers, heated seats and side mirrors, and a hands-free tailgate. The driver’s seat has 8-way power adjustment and 4-way power lumbar support, while the front passenger seat comes with 4-way power adjustment.

On the safety front, Honda’s compact crossover is available with Honda Sensing, a tech suite that includes collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist.

Even though the fifth-generation CR-V is slighter bigger, it weighs less than its predecessor. Power is provided by a 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque or, optionally, the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four cylinder unit found under the hood of the Civic, one that has been massaged to make 190 horses at 5,600 rpm and 179 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 to 5,000 rpm.

Both units are mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that drives the front or, if you so choose, all-four wheels. According to Honda, the CR-V will deliver best-in-class gas mileage when equipped with the turbo four.

Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division, stated:

“The new Honda CR-V raises the bar in every imaginable way, delivering more performance, space and premium content together with higher fuel economy ratings and value than ever before. Customers are going to love what they see and what they experience behind the wheel of this new CR-V.”

The all-new, 2017 Honda CR-V goes on sale in winter 2017. With “compact” SUVs basically taking over the sedan segment, we wouldn’t be surprised if it eventually outsells the Civic or even the Accord.

More than that, the CR-V will be quite a nightmare for other compact crossovers, including the new Chevrolet Equinox.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Rocks The Coupe-Like Look



2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

The Cross Sport is more stylish than the regular Atlas.

Volkswagen has revealed the all-new Atlas Cross Sport, expanding the Atlas lineup with a sportier, coupe-like crossover.

As a five-seat alternative to the regular Atlas, the Cross Sport eliminates the third row of seats in favor of a sleeker profile but still manages to provides 40.3 cubic feet of stowage space when the rear seats are up and 77.8 cu ft when folded flat.

A three-bar chrome grille, unique headlights, and more sculpted hood gives it a more upscale look than its larger sibling, while an available R-Line package amps up the sportiness factor with 21-inch wheels and sportier bumpers with chrome and piano black accents around the lower front air scoops.

The interior benefits from a few upgrades, featuring a new steering wheel and available stitching accents on the seats and door inserts. Heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, rear sunshades, and a 12-speaker Fender audio system are part of the options list.

As for power, buyers can choose between a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 235 horsepower or a 3.6-liter V6 with 276 horsepower. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, driving either the front wheels or, optionally, all four wheels.

The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport will be built alongside the Atlas and Passat at VW’s Chattanooga plant, with the first deliveries arriving in spring 2020.

It also benefits from new colors and more options.

Toyota has given the C-HR a few styling and tech modifications for the 2020 model year.

The interior updates are small, and include new seatback pockets and windshield visor extensions for the XLE trim level, and an 8-way power driver’s seat and Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) with headlamp auto-leveling for the Limited.

On the tech front, the C-HR now offers Android Auto to go along with the pre-existing Apple CarPlay and comes standard with SiriusXM satellite radio.

The 2020 Toyota C-HR continues to be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque, sent to the front wheels by a CVT transmission. All-wheel drive is still not offered.

Dismal headlight performance prevented the 2018-2019 C-HR from achieving a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but this is an issue Toyota has presumably addressed for the 2020 model year.
