If you are looking at the Honda CR-V you may have encountered the 2017 and 2018 models. You also might be wondering what the differences are between the two vehicles. Honda of Slidell has taken the time to compare each model and highlight any differences between the two.
The good news here is that no matter which one you choose you’re going to get an incredible compact crossover that’s heavy on features, technology, and value. The CR-V is currently the best-selling model in the Honda lineup, and we’ve seen shoppers from all over the Mandeville, LA and Gulfport, MS areas come into to our dealership to purchase or lease one.
Here’s a brief look at the 2017 and 2018 CR-V models that may help you identify which one is the right decision for you.
2017 vs. 2018 CR-V: Exterior Comparison
Honda didn’t make any exterior changes at all to the 2018 CR-V model compared to the 2017 version. This isn’t much of a surprise given the fact that the CR-V was completely redesigned for the 2017 model year.

- Sandstorm Metallic
- Molten Lava Pearl
- Basque Red Pearl II
- Obsidian Blue Pearl
- Dark Olive Metallic

- Gunmetal Metallic
- Modern Steel Metallic
- Lunar Silver Metallic
- White Diamond Pearl
2017 vs. 2018 CR-V: Interior Comparison
The Honda CR-V may be technically classified as a compact crossover, but the interior of the 2018 & 2017 Honda CR-V is incredibly spacious. There are no interior changes from the 2017 to 2018 model. You can comfortably seat up to five occupants in the CR-V.
The CR-V also features some of the best cargo capacity of any vehicle in its class. Up to 75.8 cubic feet of space is available when you fold the rear seats down. That gives you the freedom to haul all kinds of gear for work or play.
Interior options mirror each other in the 2017 and 2018 Honda CR-V models. Upper trim levels like the Touring edition offer premium amenities like leather interior, rain sensing windshield wipers, and heated mirrors. The interior of the 2018 & 2017 Honda CR-V is one of its many selling points.
