The 2017 Honda HR-V safety features include a handful of “active” safety technologies that work to keep you in control of the vehicle or operate constantly to improve safety behind the wheel.
Braking Systems: Between the anti-lock braking system, electronic brake distribution, and brake assist, the HR-V has the capabilities to bring you to a stop and reduce the risk of wheel lock-up during hard braking.
Vehicle Stability Assist: By tracking the position of the steering wheel and the placement of the HR-V’s tires, this safety feature can detect oversteer and understeer, correcting it with engine adjustments and application of the brakes until you’re back in control.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System: If just one tire is under-inflated, it can cause a significant and unpredictable effect on vehicle performance. The tire pressure monitoring system alerts drivers to under-inflated tires and directs you to which one(s) may need patching.
Daytime Running Lights: Standard on the HR-V, these lights are on whenever the vehicle is on, illuminating the front end of the crossover and making it easier for other drivers to see and avoid.
Sometimes the driver could use an extra hand or an extra set of eyes, and these 2017 Honda HR-V safety features work to add another layer of protection and awareness to the crossover.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Shift into reverse and the HR-V’s standard rearview camera will show you a top-down, wide-angle, or standard view of what’s behind the crossover to offer peace of mind when backing up. Use the built-in guidelines to slide into a tight parking spot or packed garage with ease.
Honda LaneWatch: Another high-tech camera feature, this safety technology is found on EX and higher trims and uses a mirror-mounted camera to show you your passenger-side blind spot. Simply signal a lane change to the right and the in-dash display will show what your LaneWatch camera sees in the passenger-side blind spot.
All-Wheel Drive: Available on all trims, Real Time All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control senses when the HR-V loses traction and directs engine power to the rear wheels until you’ve made it off of uneven ground or away from slick pavement.
