Here it is: the fifth generation 2017 Honda CR-V. Get used to the look of this car because you’ll soon be seeing them everywhere. Everywhere, I tell you! At the YMCA, at Trader Joe’s, in your living room, at Islanders games. This is the crossover everyone buys.

There’s a new 1.5-liter turbocharged engine to choose from—a first for the CR-V—rated at 190 horsepower. Customers who don’t want that can still get a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated engine. Both are fine and good, I am sure.

Honda was also keen to mention that the infotainment system “now features a physical volume knob,” which is arguably the best piece of news about this car. Recent Hondas have lacked actual buttons on their big touch screens.

Knobs are the best and clearly the most superior method of regulating sound levels. Someone at Honda has a good head on their shoulders.

Meet the CR-V! It’s the car.

I have a strange hatred of CR-V’s, RAV4's, etc. It’s irrational, and it doesn’t make sense, but it’s there.
