Cutting-Edge Safety Equipment

Each Honda HR-V comes equipped with various protective features that are designed to keep vehicle occupants safer. Standard-issue safety equipment found onboard the HR-V models includes:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: The Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control system works with the HR-V's Drive-by-Wire throttle and anti-lock braking systems to boost control during acceleration, cornering, braking, and emergency maneuvers. Brake force is applied independently to one or more wheels while the throttle, ignition, and fuel systems are managed to help maintain stability and to keep the HR-V in its intended travel path.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: The HR-V's multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, another standard feature, helps drivers operate in reverse more safely by displaying any obstacles in the HR-V's path. The camera automatically goes into action when the vehicle is shifted into reverse, displaying three different views of the rear area behind the HR-V: normal, top-down, and wide.
  • Smart Airbags: The HR-V's advanced airbag system includes smart features that are designed to go even further in protecting passengers. SmartVent front side airbags come standard and can detect front-seat passengers and deploy in such a way as to reduce the risk of airbag-related injury for smaller occupants. The HR-V also features standard side curtain airbags with rollover sensors.
  • ACE Body Structure: Honda's proprietary advanced compatibility engineering (ACE) body structure additionally comes standard and has been designed to absorb and deflect frontal collision energy. This advanced body design further helps mitigate the amount of force transferred into the cabin of the HR-V in the event of a collision and can even help distribute crash energy transference more evenly to other vehicles involved in an accident.

The HR-V further offers the Honda LaneWatch blind spot display system on EX and higher trim levels, mounting a camera below the passenger-side mirror and giving you a wider look at that blind spot when it's time to change lanes or merge.
