The 2017 model year will be interesting for all car enthusiasts and lovers, because many carmakers work hard to develop new models and to revamp the current ones. Among the vehicle that are to be revamped for the 2017 model year will be the Honda CR-V. Since the current generation has been around since 2015, when it arrived completely revamped, the carmaker prepared only mid-cycle refresh for the 2017 Honda CR-V. However, since we’re talking about Honda, their minor changes could be pretty interesting though. It seems that the greatest news this year will be a new trim level called the Special Edition, to fill in the gap between the EX and the LX trim levels. The new trim level will be easily recognized by its unique 17-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, and upgraded security system.
