2018 Honda HR-V Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Keep an eye on what’s behind you by utilizing the HR-V’s built-in rearview camera. This system offers wide-angle, top-down, and normal viewing modes, and what’s more, the EX model includes dynamic guidelines as a standard feature.
2018 Honda HR-V AWD
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA): Standard vehicle stability assist with traction control allows the HR-V to handle curves and difficult terrain like few other compact crossovers can—by controlling each of its wheels independently.


2018 Honda HR-V ACE body structure
Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE): ACE body structure uses a smartly designed arrangement of ultra-rigid and collapsible building materials in order to direct the forces produced in collisions away from those seated in your cabin.
2018 Honda HR-V LaneWatch
Honda LaneWatch: Simply activate your right-hand turn signal to take advantage of Honda LaneWatch: a built-in camera that streams a live feed of your blind spot directly to your central console. It’s a standard feature on the EX and above.

Convenience and Connectivity Technologies

The engineers and designers at Honda know that there’s never a good time to be cut off from your friends, family members, and coworkers. To help their drivers stay in the loop, they’ve equipped the 2018 Honda HR-V with technology features that let you stay connected and in control no matter where life takes you. The features included across the HR-V’s three trim levels comprise smartphone connectivity tools and easy-to-use interfaces that will seem familiar from the moment you first power them on!


  • HondaLink with an SMS Text Message Function: Drivers who upgrade to the EX or EX-L Navi trims will be able to connect their smartphone directly to their HR-V using HondaLink! These trim levels also include an SMS text message function that can read your received text messages aloud.
  • Illuminated Steering Wheel–Mounted Controls: These controls make it easy to manage all of your most commonly used settings and functions, so you can stay in control even when there’s little light to see by!
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System: In its EX-L Navi trim, the HR-V includes a Satellite-Linked Navigation System that will make it easy to get from point A to point B. This system includes turn-by-turn directions, HD digital traffic projection, and even voice recognition/activation!
