When shopping for a new SUV, safety is important. The safety features of the Honda HR-V include some of the most advanced technology of the day. This is great news for drivers across the Miami, Doral, and Hialeah, FL, area looking for a safer sport utility vehicle.
To help these drivers discover the HR-V top safety implementations, the folks here at Braman Honda have put together this Honda HR-V safety features review. Keep reading to learn more about them!
There’s a total of seven active safety features in the Honda HR-V that come standard in every new model. The most impressive of them is the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control.
More Standard Active Safety Features:
The Multi-Angle Rearview Camera offers you a normal, top-down, and wide-angle view, so you can get a good look at what’s behind you when backing up. This makes it easier and safer to back out of your driveway or into a difficult parking spot. EX trim levels and higher receive an upgraded camera that features Dynamic Guidelines, which show you the steered path to help you gauge if any obstacles are in the way.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System is a helpful tool that can actually improve traction and fuel efficiency by notifying you when one or more tires are low on air. Simply place air in the underinflated tire, and the system resets until pressure drops below the designated threshold again.
With nine standard passive safety features, the 2020 Honda HR-V is incredibly equipped to protect all your passengers. From little things like the driver’s and front passenger’s seatbelt reminder to the innovative SmartVent® front side airbags, there’s a lot of safety technology in the Honda HR-V.
In terms of airbags, you’ll find dual-stage and multiple-threshold front airbags, in addition to the SmartVent® airbags. These dual-stage airbags can inflate at different rates, depending on crash severity and other factors to limit injury. There are also side curtain airbags with rollover sensors to help create a protective bubble around the passenger compartment.
Helping to absorb impact energy and crash force is the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure. Using a sophisticated network of structural components, the Honda HR-V is able to help optimize how crash energy is absorbed and transferred away from passengers.
Even more passive safety features include front 3-Point Seatbelts with Automatic Tensioning System, Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH), and child-proof rear door locks.
Most vehicles on the road today are equipped with their own set of safety features. However, not all of them are as intuitive and innovative as Honda Sensing®.
What is Honda Sensing®, exactly? It’s a suite of active safety features designed to provide guidance and peace of mind. Here’s what it entails:
While keeping the passengers of a vehicle safer is crucial, there are more things inside a vehicle that should be protected.
Your belongings are important, too. Luckily, Honda has got you covered with an array of interior security options and accessories.
Protect your car from mud, dog hair, and other spills with available All-Season Floor Mats. These mats are specially designed to trap dirt, made of durable material, and can be easily cleaned with mild soap and water.
For groceries, sports equipment, or other loose items, why not add an optional cargo net? This net helps to keep items upright and securely in place with its elastic cord construction for a tight fit.
While we’re on the topic of cargo, Honda also offers an available Hard Cargo Cover. Featuring a soft matte feel and a black color to match your HR-V model’s lining, items will be hidden from view while also protected from harsh UV rays.
