The 2017 Honda HR-V Safety Features Protect Driver and Passengers

  • Honda HR-V

    The 2017 Honda HR-V safety features should be the top priority of anyone looking at the crossover, and we’re here to give a comprehensive breakdown to our Hampton Roads drivers. Between the active safety, passive safety, and driver-assist technologies, the HR-V has some of the most advanced safety features in its class. See all of the HR-V features that work to keep you safe before you visit us for a test drive.

Active Safety

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.


Honda HR-V Brake Assist

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.

Honda HR-V Stability Assist with Traction Control

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.

Honda HR-V Tire Pressure Monitoring System

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.

Honda HR-V Daytime Running Lights

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.

Passive Safety

Not all accidents are avoidable, and the passive 2017 Honda HR-V safety features simply wait until they are needed, protecting passengers and keeping people secure in the vehicle.

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure: Honda has spent years refining their vehicle frames, building crumple zones in that can redirect crash energy away from passengers and reinforcing key collision areas to make vehicles safer.
  • Airbags: Between the dual-stage multi-threshold airbags, front SmartVent side airbags, and the side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, the HR-V is able to offer cushioning support to protect passengers during a collision or rollover.
  • Three-Point Seat Belts: All five of the HR-V seating locations include three-point seat belts for added peace of mind, with front seats including automatic seat belt reminders and tensioning systems.
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH): The rear seats feature lower anchors on the outboard seats and tether anchors on all seats to easily and quickly secure a child safety seat before heading out on the road.
  • Child-Proof Rear Door Locks: Children can get curious and tug on the door handle when they get bored in the backseat, and the HR-V’s standard child-proof rear door locks ensure they aren’t able to open the door while you’re driving to the store or to school.

Driver-Assist Technologies

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.


Honda HR-V Rearview Camera

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 HR-V Lanewatch

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.

Honda HR-V Real Time AWD

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.
