While small crossovers aren’t the most thrilling on the planet, they offer what most large crossovers don’t – an attractive price and tons of functionality. Additionally, with their elevated seats, the driver is able to have a commanding view of the pavement and can effortlessly accommodate up to four occupants together with their cargo.

You might complain about their smaller and less powerful engines, but will be impressed with their laudable fuel economy ratings which will save you some bucks at the pump. See, the CR-V isn’t for everybody especially those who are looking for a spirited driving experience, it is designed as a well-rounded and practical vehicle suitable for everyday family functionality.

Interior wise, the vehicle provides ample head-and legroom, allows easy ingress and egress, and makes use of soft-touch materials extensively. With 32.7 cubic feet if cargo space, users will find little reason to complain about their cargo especially during those unwinding trips. The volume can also be increased when the trunk-mounted levers have been pulled nearly doubling the existing space.

Comfortable and safety features are the strongest selling point for Honda. Some standard features include keyless entry and ignition, a sunroof, side-mounted camera, lane-keeping assist, forward collision alert, automatic braking, and blind-spot monitoring.

2017 Honda Civic Type R Release Date, Specs & Info

Once again, the new 2017 Honda Civic Type R is a must-drive compact sedan thanks to the zesty and fuel-efficient turbocharged engine, a satisfying handling, spacious cabin, advanced infotainment and safety technologies, big trunk, and daring looks. The Type R release date, although unconfirmed, should be expected sometime in the middle of 2017, probably around June.

While the Honda Civic has had quite a tumultuous run ever since it was released some few years ago, it has managed to garner both cynics and fans alike. Honda has made some changes to the Type R which are meant to offer it a competitive advantage over its rivals who have also improved by leaps and bounds.

Its interior boasts of several updates including a nifty touchscreen interface that offers a faster response and crisp graphics unlike the previous model. The looks are edgy yet mature, and the audio and climate controls are well-laid. And similar to the best Civics of yore, it handles well and feels sporty especially on winding back roads.

Most often, we take Honda’s claim of having “best-in-class interior volume” with a grain of salt, however, for 2017, it seems to hold water as the interior volume it offers might even question the need for an Accord. Nitpicking has only yielded one foible – price tag. With an asking price or around $47,249 for the 2017 Honda Civic Type R EX trim model, some might conclude it’s a rip off relative to what other vehicles are going for in the same segment.

Exterior 2017 Honda Civic Type R colors include Championship White, Milano Red, Brilliant Sporty Blue, Polished Metal, and Crystal  Black. Some of the distinctive features offered inside the cabin includes red double stitching, high-backed sport seats, black gear-lever gaiter, black leather-clad steering wheel, and unique trimming details.

For a better driving experience, some of the suspension technologies offered include a new four-point Adaptive Damper System. This features enables the Type R to maintain a stable, flat ride, limited wheel-load transfer, and deliver exceptional road holding performance. The other system is the Advanced Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension that, in comparison to the standard suspension set up, helps reduce torque steer by up to fifty percent by improving the on-the-limit cornering and steering feel, and high speed stability.

For those who see its price tag as a threat to their financial statements, there are other alternatives to consider such as the 2017 Ford Focus RS and the Volkswagen Golf R. The Golf R is a hot hatch option that the Type R will have to battle fiercely against in the UK and here in the States. It offers lots of technologies and features worth craving for. Performance wise, it’s also a force to reckon with, with an output rated at 292 horsepower and 280 lbs. ft. of torque.

The Ford Focus RS is yet another hot hatch that promises the Type R a run for its money. It boasts a power output rated at 315 hp generated from its 2.3L EcoBoost engine. Rumors allege it will check in at around $35,000 in the U.S.A.

Exterior wise, the most conspicuous changes are probably those on the rear and front fascias, taillights, grille, and the LED foglights. A first for the Accord is the standard new wheel design and a slightly enlarged wheel rubber. Getting inside, you’ll notice that the vehicle is comfortable and there is extensive use of soft-touch materials and latest techs.

Despite the changes, it is worth noting that the vehicle was already an attention grabber in its previous state and nothing evolutionary was necessary, a concept that Honda has profoundly managed. Its solid build quality, abundant interior room, responsive handling, a comprehensive feature set, powerful yet fuel efficient engines, and its reputation for trouble-free ownership propels the Accord to the top of its segment.
