When you’re behind the wheel of the 2017 Honda HR-V, you’ll be able to take advantage of a wide variety of technologically advanced active safety features. Safety in the HR-V begins with its anti-lock braking system and its electronic brake distribution. In addition, every HR-V comes standard with vehicle stability assist with traction control and brake assist technology! Working in concert, these features ensure that your SUVs brakes can always respond intelligently to unsafe roads and obstacles. A multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines is equipped as a standard feature on the baseline LX trim. Dynamic rearview camera guidelines, as well as the Honda LaneWatch system, are available on the EX trim and up.
Brake Assist: No one is prepared for everything that happens on the road, but brake assist technology makes it much easier to stop your vehicle in an emergency. Brake assist immediately applies the full force of your HR-V’s brakes when you need to stop on a dime.
Honda LaneWatch: Keeping track of the traffic moving through your blind spot has never been easier! When you activate your right-hand turn signal, a camera on your passenger-side mirror becomes active. While it’s active, a screen above your center console will give you a view of your blind spot that’s far superior to that offered by the passenger-side mirror on its own.
Vehicle Stability Assist: Every HR-V comes standard with vehicle stability assist and traction control technology. These features use the HR-V’s electronic brake distribution in order to adjust the rotation of your tires when you’re traveling quickly around a curve or moving over difficult terrain.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: The rearview camera in the HR-V can display your surroundings from normal, wide-angle, and top-down viewing angles. In the HR-V’s LX trim, this camera comes equipped with guidelines. By upgrading to the HR-V EX or HR-V EX-L Navi, drivers will receive Dynamic Guidelines that can help to direct you in close quarters.
Passive safety features provide the final line of defense against the possibility of injury in a car accident, and in the HR-V, they leave little to be desired. For added peace of mind, the HR-V offers the combined protection of the LATCH system, child-proof door locks, and three-point seat belts in all seating positions. The 2017 HR-V also comes equipped with six airbags. Advanced Compatibility Engineering is unique to Honda’s vehicles, and here, it works to ensure that any crash that does occur keeps driver and passengers as protected as possible.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering: Thanks to Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, the HR-V’s rigid steel frame can help to protect you if a collision should occur. ACE is designed to direct crash energy away from the HR-V’s seating positions.
HR-V Airbags: Families who ride in the HR-V will enjoy the protection of three separate sets of airbags. Dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, and SmartVent front side airbags provide security to persons seated in the front row. The HR-V’s side curtain airbags activate with a rollover sensor and protect passengers in the second row of seating.
Three-Point Seatbelts: Three-point seat belts offer top-of-the-line protection, and in the Honda HR-V, they’re equipped at every seating position! Additionally, the seat belts in the front row have auto-tensioning technology, so you’ll enjoy secure seating that’s been tailored to the shape of your body.
LATCH: If your young children make use of car seats, then you’ll love the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system in the HR-V. Buyers will be able to access tethers from all rear seating positions, and lower anchors are accessible from the rear outboard seats.
