Without question, the latest advent of Honda’s best selling SUV in it’s turbocharged glory is a pleasure to drive; good looking; and multiple task capable. Beyond that, Honda’s near midsize 2-row comes with one of, if not, the most comprehensive active safety suite options available in the sub-premium SUV segment today.
While you and I may not eagerly share our state of the auto art CR-V touring with the newest driver in the family, US News and World Report ranks 2017 Honda CR-V, when equipped with optional Honda Sensing, the “Best New Car for Teens,” in the ever expanding crossover, SUV vehicle segment.

2017 Honda CR-V when properly equipped, will avoid collision
Although not 100% Autonomous, 2017 Honda CR-V when optioned with Honda’s award winning Honda Sensing ™, will aid your teenage driver in keeping within the driving lane when distracted (often,) and mitigate collision avoidance by automatically applying the brakes, often a split second before the driver becomes aware of pending doom.
Honda Sensing features include: Roll-over- prevention via heightened electronic suspension stability, ABS, electronic brake aided non-skid quick stopping, and much more. Me, I like the adaptive cruise control and Lane Keep assist. Read more about active safety features here. You will find full 2017 CR-V specifications and trim level MSRP here.
