The HR-V features an innovative design that makes it one of the safest vehicles on the road. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure that utilizes a complex network of frame structures that absorbs crash energy and distributes it away from the occupants sitting in the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved in the collision, keeping everyone safer.
The HR-V includes an extensive list of passive safety features comprised of airbags, seat belts, and locks. These important features may go on unnoticed at first glance, but are there to keep you safe when you need them most.
The active safety features on the HR-V ensure that it’s performing at its best, even amid inclement weather or less than ideal road conditions. These features help the HR-V maintain good tractive control on the road, come to a complete stop more quickly in an emergency braking situation, and ensures the HR-V is clearly visible to other drivers with Daytime Running Lights.
Every model of the HR-V comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing up. And with guidelines as a standard feature, and dynamic guidelines on the upper trim levels, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera includes three different angles, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.
Starting with the EX model, the HR-V comes equipped with Honda Sensing, a suite of driver-assistive technology designed to help drivers drive better and more safely on the road. The package includes systems that warn, prevent, and mitigate impacts on the road.
The EX model also includes Honda LaneWatch, which helps drivers see more in their blind spot. A small camera is mounted onto the passenger’s side mirror and displays a live video feed of activity going on in the driver’s blind spot. The video will display on the 7-inch touchscreen inside the cabin when a right lane change is signaled and allows drivers to see up to four times more than using the mirrors alone.
