Safety in the HR-V starts with its innovative body design. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants sitting inside 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 a long list of passive safety features comprised of air bags, seat belts, locks, and more. These features may go unnoticed at first glance but are there to keep you safe when you need them most.
The active safety features of the HR-V avoid safety risks in different situations by ensuring its performing at its best, even amid inclement weather or slippery road surfaces. These features help the HR-V maintain good tractive control, come to a complete stop more quickly in an emergency braking situation, and makes sure the HR-V is clearly visible to other drivers on the road with LED Daytime Running Lights.
Every model of the HR-V comes standard with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing up. And with guidelines as a standard accompanying 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 also comes equipped with Honda LaneWatch. A small camera is mounted on the passenger’s side mirror and displays a live video feed of activity going on in the driver’s blind spot. The video displays 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.
