The Honda CR-V Technology Features Bring Convenience to Your Fingertips

  • 2016 Honda CR-V

    Designed with convenience, comfort, and accessibility in mind, the state-of-the art technology found inside the Honda CR-V keeps drivers connected, safe, and in control. A dynamic and versatile crossover with room to spare and tech features aplenty, the Honda CR-V offers drivers more technology than competing models like the Hyundai Sonata, the Ford Escape, and the Chevy Equinox.

    Let’s take a look inside this tech-savvy crossover from Honda and see why it offers drivers more than many of its competitors.

More Technology, More Convenience

The Honda CR-V is well-equipped with a long list of tech features that make the experience on the road more comfortable and convenient for everyone inside.

Coming standard on all CR-V models, even on the base model, are impressive features including a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. This feature is automatically activated when the car is put into reverse and allows the driver to see behind the vehicle so you can back up safely and with more precision. With multiple angles to switch between, including a wide view and regular view, you can choose the angle that gives you the best perspective in different backup situations.

Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and SMS text messaging are also found inside the Honda CR-V, from the LX base model to the top of the line. These features come together to make staying connected easy and safer as the vehicle allows you to access the capabilities on your phone without having to take your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road.

There will be no more digging in your pockets, bags, or purses for your car keys with the Smart Entry feature along with the push-button start feature, which you’ll find inside the EX, EX-L, and Touring models. Start the engine, lock and unlock, even drive the vehicle without ever having to dig for the keys. That can cut time so you can hop in and go.

Drivers and passengers will stay comfortable in their seats with features such as heated front seats, which is standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring models, dual-zone automatic climate control with air-filtration system found inside the EX-L and Touring models, and a driver’s seat with 10-way power adjustment, including lumbar support, found on all three models (and with an additional two-position memory feature on the Touring model). So whether you’re zipping around the corner or across the state, no matter how long you’re sitting, you’ll stay warm or cool, comfortable, and supported.

Another feature worth mentioning is the one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature, which is found on the EX, EX-L, and Touring models. Let in fresh air, more light, and a bit of luxury when you open or tilt the moonroof with just a simple touch of a button.

The Touring model also features a power tailgate, perfect for drivers who have their hands full with groceries, bags, or other items that make reaching for the keys difficult. This feature allows for much easier access to the CR-V’s spacious 70.9 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seats down, one of the largest cargo volumes on the road.

Stay Entertained and Informed

The Honda CR-V infotainment features make any trip more pleasant, by offering forms of entertainment including access to music, and more productive, by letting both drivers and passengers stay connected.

Along with the Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, and SMS Text Message features are Pandora compatibility, a USB port, an auxiliary audio jack, and CD player with four-speaker sound system, which all come standard on every model.

For drivers who want even more, going up to the EX, EX-L, and Touring models offers an upgraded 7-inch touchscreen display with HondaLink smartphone integration, a six-speaker sound system, and a second USB port.

The 7-inch touchscreen offers a high-resolution display and customizable feature settings, so the already intuitive and user-friendly interface can be made even more so.

Safety Features

Not to be outdone is an impressive and comprehensive list of safety features that uses state-of-the-art technology to assist the driver to drive better and more confidently.

The result has showered the CR-V in well-deserved safety-related awards and acknowledgments, including a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety* and a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.**

Inside the CR-V, you’ll find standard safety features that include antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, and multi-angle rearview camera.

Other available safety features include:

  • LaneWatch Blind Spot Monitoring System
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

Compare to Rivals

Among the pack of crossover SUVs on the road, the Honda CR-V is head and shoulders above the rest.

The Honda CR-V offers the one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature as a part of the standard equipment on three of its models. In contrast, the Hyundai Sonata only offers a similar standard feature on one of its models. And the Chevrolet Equinox does not offer the feature as a part of its standard equipment at all, only as an available option.

The CR-V also has the 10-way power adjustment driver’s seat, while the Hyundai Sonata and Chevy Equinox only offer an eight-way power driver’s seat.

Additionally, the Ford Escape lacks the amount of available cargo space and some of the CR-V’s audio capabilities including the MP3 player jack.
