The demands of everyday life mean that it can be tough to give up a connection to a phone or e-mail account, but the 2017 Honda HR-V technology features have you covered. By offering connectivity options over Bluetooth and USB, with advanced HondaLink telematics and a satellite-linked navigation system available, this crossover keeps you connected while on the go.
Bluetooth: Standard on each HR-V, Bluetooth lets you wirelessly sync up your smartphone or other device with the vehicle for hands-free phone calls and streaming audio. Just pair the device once and the HR-V infotainment system will recognize it every time the engine revs to life.
USB Audio Interface: Bring your music library on the road with you by plugging an external hard drive, flash drive, MP3 player, or other device into the USB audio interface—it will charge your gadget while you drive, too.
Display Audio: Available on EX and higher trim levels, the HR-V’s 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen augments the standard 5-inch LCD screen to give you added control over vehicle settings and infotainment features.
HondaLink: This exclusive Honda telematics system uses standard Honda apps and third-party apps to connect your phone to the HR-V in new ways, streaming a variety of audio options, reading from your social media feed while driving, and even scheduling maintenance and repair jobs.
Navigation:Get where you need to go and get there as quickly as possible with the HR-V’s available satellite-linked navigation system, complete with traffic rerouting and a point-of-interest locator. Plan your destination without even taking your hands from the wheel with the navigation system’s standard voice controls.
You’re looking at a new crossover because life gets more convenient when you have a vehicle than when you don’t, right? While there are ways a car makes life more convenient simply by being a car, these 2017 Honda HR-V technology features make driving a bit easier:
Smart Entry: This available HR-V feature allows the crossover to sense where your key fob is. If you’re nearby, you can simply walk up to the door and open it, no unlocking necessary. After you arrive wherever you are going, just push a button on the door handle to lock up the car—no fumbling for keys.
Push-Button Start: Combined with Smart Entry, the HR-V’s available push-button start system means you can leave your keys buried in your pocket or purse. The HR-V can detect that your keys are in the vehicle with you, then it’s just a matter of pushing the “start” button and revving the engine to life.
Center Console: The HR-V’s center console area has plenty of room for your keys, wallet, phone, and other essentials, but it’s more than that. Charging ports near the console let you easily keep your gadgets charged to full while out and about.
Heated Seating: Few things beat the chill of winter better than heated front seating, available on select HR-V models. Choose from two different levels of warmth to get comfortable behind the wheel, even in the dead of winter.
Steering Wheel–Mounted Controls: Stay in control of your media, cruise control, and phone settings without ever taking your hands off of the wheel thanks to the HR-V’s standard steering wheel–mounted controls. Conveniently placed buttons let you hang up a call, change a track, or raise your cruising speed with ease.
We think the convenience of staying connected behind the wheel of the HR-V certainly sets it apart from other models in its class, but the 2017 Honda HR-V technology features we are most interested in and most excited to share with you are the safety technologies. In addition to three-point seat belts, a variety of airbags, and the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, you’ll find the following safety tech features:
All-Wheel Drive: Available on every trim of the HR-V, Honda’s all-wheel drive system uses a traction monitoring technology that activates all-wheel drive when it senses a loss of traction, delivering immediate responsiveness while remaining remarkably fuel efficient.
Rearview Camera: Standard on the HR-V, a multi-angle rearview camera positioned on the rear of the vehicle offers top-down, wide-angle, and standard views of what’s behind the HR-V. Simply shift into reverse and the in-vehicle display shows what the camera sees.
Honda LaneWatch: EX and higher trim levels have Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror. Signal your intent to change lanes or press a button to see an expanded look at what’s in the passenger-side blind spot for peace of mind.
