Cutting-edge Convenience

The CR-V features various high-tech amenities that make the motoring experience much more convenient and comfortable for drivers and passengers alike, including:

  • Smart Entry, which is offered standard in the CR-V EX, EX-L, and Touring trims and enables drivers to unlock, start, drive, and turn off the CR-V, then lock it while walking away—all without ever removing the keys from their pockets or purses.
  • A power tailgate, which comes standard in the Touring trim and offers convenient access to the CR-V’s 70.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume, so drivers don’t have to struggle with a key in the tailgate lock when their arms are full.
  • Standard 12-volt power outlets in the front and center consoles that allow drivers and passengers to keep their devices charged up while they’re out and about.
  • An auto-dimming rearview mirror, which comes standard in the EX-L and Touring trims and goes into action whenever high beams from another vehicle hit the mirror. This extremely handy feature allows drivers to stay focused on the road, keeping them from being blinded by another car’s high beams and eliminating the need to manually adjust the rearview mirror in order to see properly.
  • A dual-zone automatic climate control system that comes standard in the EX-L and Touring trims, delivering the optimum combination of air-conditioning, heating, and ventilation in the vehicle based on the interior temperature selected by the driver. This convenient system helps keep drivers focused on the road, removing the need to constantly adjust the climate control system when it becomes too hot or too cold in the vehicle.
  • A HomeLink Remote System, which is offered standard in the CR-V Touring model and can be programmed to operate remote-controlled devices within—or around—the driver’s home, including garage doors, lighting, and home security systems.
  • A standard SMS text message function that helps drivers safely send text messages and e-mails while behind the wheel.

Infotainment Offerings

The CR-V is well geared for prime entertainment while traveling—whether you’re headed across the country or just across town.

Standard offerings found in each CR-V model that are ready and waiting to make driving a pleasure onboard this feature-loaded SUV include:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth Streaming Audio, which provide hands-free access to functions and content on the driver’s smartphone.
  • HondaLink Next Generation, which comes standard in the EX, EX-L, and Touring models, enabling vehicle occupants to further stay connected and entertained. This application-based platform connects drivers and passengers to online content, featuring four downloadable apps that allow access to Aha content, 3D navigation, HondaLink Traffic, local weather reports, restaurant recommendations, and more.
  • The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, which is further offered as an available feature in the EX-L model and comes standard onboard the Touring trim, complete with voice recognition, HD Radio, and Honda HD Digital Traffic.
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth Streaming Audio.
  • A 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen interface is offered standard in the EX, EX-L, and Touring models, providing easy access to music, podcasts, and more. Further boosting audio access in the CR-V, SiriusXM Radio is a standard feature in the EX-L and Touring trims. Pandora compatibility, MP3 and Windows Media Audio playback capability, a radio data system, and speed-sensitive volume control all come standard across the full CR-V lineup, along with a USB audio interface (one in the LX and SE models and two in the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims).

Safety Tech

The award-winning Honda CR-V has received top marks for its outstanding safety features, being named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety* and receiving a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for the 2016 model year.**

State-of-the-art safety amenities found onboard the CR-V include:

  • Honda LaneWatch, which comes standard in the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims. This feature uses an integrated camera in the passenger-side exterior mirror to deliver live video footage of the vehicle’s right side, helping drivers turn and change lanes more safely. For tips on using this feature, see the accompanying video.
  • Available collision mitigation braking system, which fully applies the CR-V’s brakes when an impending crash is detected and the driver doesn’t respond quickly enough to warnings.
  • Available adaptive cruise control, which adjusts the speed between the CR-V and other vehicles to maintain a safe following distance when in cruise control mode.
  • Brake assist, which gauges emergency braking situations and delivers added braking power when it’s needed, ensuring maximum stopping force is being applied and helping shorten the braking distance.
  • Multi-angle rearview camera, which provides a clear view of what’s behind the CR-V when it’s being operated in reverse.
  • SmartVent front side airbags, which employ speed and seat sensors to adjust passenger airbag deployment or shut off the airbags completely on that side, depending on the size of the person sitting there.

Compared with Competitors

When contrasted with the technology features offered onboard rival vehicles like the Nissan Rogue and the Toyota RAV4, the CR-V emerges as a prime choice in the popular SUV segment.

In the Honda CR-V Touring model, driver memory settings come standard, which is a feature the Nissan Rogue does not offer.

Adaptive cruise control, offered standard in the CR-V Touring model, automatically changes vehicle speed to keep drivers at a safe, consistent following distance from other cars, which is another feature the Rogue does not offer.

The CR-V EX, EX-L, and Touring trims offer standard HondaLink Assist, which uses a GPS receiver and cellular system to call emergency personnel to the car’s location whenever airbags deploy in the vehicle. This is a feature not found in the Toyota RAV4.

The CR-V additionally offers a one-touch power driver window, which is another amenity not found in the RAV4.
