Honda HR-V Active Safety Features
There are seven total active safety features for the Honda HR-V. These include the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control, and more.
More Standard Active Safety Features: Honda HR-V
First, we’ll list a few other active safety features for the HR-V. Then, we’ll go into more detail for two previously mentioned features.
- Anti-Lock Brakes
- Electronic Brake Distribution
- Brake Assist
- Daytime Running Lights
Honda’s Multi-Angle Rearview Camera offers you three different angles (normal, top-down, and wide) so that you can get a solid look at what’s going on behind you while you’re reversing. That way, it’s both easier and safer to back out of your driveway, a tough parking spot, etc. Plus, any trim level that’s EX or above will get an upgraded system with Dynamic Guidelines, so you’ll know what’s in your way.
Honda’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System is a helpful tool that allows you to optimize traction and fuel efficiency by alerting you when one or more of your tires is low on air; this helps to prevent a flat, too.
Passive Safety Features on the Honda HR-V
But, that’s not all. In addition to the active safety features, the 2017 HR-V is equipped with nine passive safety systems, standard. From simple things like the front seat belt reminder to the state-of-the-art SmartVent® front side airbags, there are surely a lot of passive safety technology in this Honda crossover.
In terms of airbags, you’ll find dual-stage and multi-threshold front airbags, as well as SmartVent® airbags. These high-tech airbags can inflate at different rates, depending on factors like crash severity.
Furthermore, the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure utilizes a sophisticated network of structural components to optimize how crash energy is absorbed, deflecting it from your passengers.
Last, but certainly not least, you can look forward to the 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System, Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), child-proof rear door locks, and much more.
