“We are pleased and thankful for the great reviews the all-new 2017 Honda CR-V has received from many journalists in the automotive press.  We are confident that our customers will feel the same way about the fifth generation CR-V, the best-selling SUV in America over the past 20 years, with cumulative U.S. sales of nearly four million units since the model’s introduction in 1997.

Honda recently celebrated the global start of mass production at the East Liberty Auto Plant (ELP) in Ohio. Our Ohio team did an incredible job as the global lead plant for this fifth-generation CR-V.  In this role, ELP is not only the first plant in the world to launch the new CR-V into mass production, but also developed the processes and technologies that will form the manufacturing base for production of CR-V at ten Honda plants globally.

In addition to the East Liberty Plant, CR-V also will be built at Honda of Canada Mfg. in Alliston, Ont. and Honda Manufacturing of Indiana in Greensburg, Ind.

With a first-ever available turbocharged engine that also is built right here in Ohio we believe the CR-V will remain the benchmark among compact SUVs.  On behalf of our entire team of associates in Ohio, we look forward to sharing this world-class 2017 CR-V with our customers in the U.S., North America and around the world.”
