If you work or live in China, you should definitely consider the possibility of buying this vehicle. Enjoy in the following text!
2017 Honda Avancier Exterior design
The appearance of this model is quite extraordinary, and everything from the outside is so powerful and huge. This model has some similarities to the CR-V model from 2014-2015, especially at the front fascia. For example, at the front side, we can see very similar front grille as we used to see in CR-V for USA markets. However, the grille is not exactly the same, and it is going to be more stylish. The headlights of this model will be also very similar to the mentioned model, but these headlights will use better LED technology. We can expect the newest generation of LED system. The mentioned grille will feature a wavy mesh as well as a big Honda emblem in the middle.

Under the good looking grille, this model has very massive front bumper. This bumper will have cutouts for air vents. However, those cutouts will be filled with the LED fog lights. Those lights are very strong, and they are very useful if you drive in very hard weather conditions. If we look this model from the profile, we can notice triple vent setup positioned on the side of the hood. At the rear side of the vehicle, the taillights will have C-shape and they will use the same system as the headlights and fog lights. The latest Honda Avancier 2017 will ride on very large wheels made from an aluminum. Unfortunately, we don’t know the size of the wheels.
New Honda Avancier 2017 Interior design
The interior design of this model is even better than the exterior design. The whole cabin is so elegant and luxurious. Also, the comfort will be at the high level, with a lot of high-quality materials. For example, the leather will be standard upholstery for all seats, but that doesn’t mean that we can see leather only on the seats. We can see leather on the dashboard, steering wheel, and door trims. Also, besides leather, some aluminum details are provided. The dashboard of this model is very simple, and it is quite easy to work with it. At the middle of the dash, the new Honda Avancier 2017 has a large touchscreen with the buttons from the left side of the screen. Also between the speedometer and rev meter, there is 6 inches display.
