Technology Features of the 2018 Honda HR-V
Advanced Safety Features
When you’re behind the wheel of this one-of-a-kind compact crossover, you’ll be able to drive with the perfect confidence that only top-notch safety features can provide. The 2018 HR-V’s active and passive safety technologies give you the tools you’ll need to prevent most collisions and stay safe in those accidents that can’t be avoided. What’s more, as with every other vehicle in Honda’s AWD lineup, the HR-V’s handling capability leaves little to be desired. You can take the HR-V anywhere!
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.
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.
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.
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!

7-Inch Display Audio with High-Resolution Touchscreen:

Pandora Compatibility and SiriusXM Radio:
Drivers who choose the HR-V will have more entertainment and audio options than they’ll know what to do with! In the EX and above, you’ll have access to Pandora Internet Radio, and in the EX-L Navi, you’ll also be able to enjoy SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
