The 2019 Honda HR-V Safety

The 2019 Honda HR-V Safety

The 2019 Honda HR-V is a subcompact crossover SUV that is versatile, dynamic, and sophisticated inside and out. Its flexible interior can accommodate both passengers and cargo while its agile handling and available AWD make it a great option for all season driving. U.S. News and World Report says its “one of the best choices in the subcompact SUV class,” offering “the best combination of quality and value.” But it’s the HR-V’s safety features and technology that also make it one of the safest crossover options on the road.

  • Active and passive safety features keep you safe on the road
  • A multi-angle rearview camera is standard on every model
  • The Honda Sensing suite includes collision mitigation systems

Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

The safety in the HR-V starts with the innovative body design. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone safer.

Passive Safety

The HR-V includes an extensive list of passive safety features comprised of seat belts, airbags, locks, and more. These vital features may go on unnoticed at first glance but are there to keep you safe when you need them most.

  • Advanced Front Airbags

  • SmartVent Front Side Airbags

  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor

  • 3-Point Seat Belts at all Seating Positions

  • Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System

  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)

  • Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seatbelt Reminder

  • Child-Proof Rear Door Locks

  • Brake Assist

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

Every model of the HR-V comes equipped with a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before reversing. And with guidelines as a standard accompanying feature, and dynamic guidelines on the upper trim levels, drivers can maneuver the HR-V in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera includes three different angles, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.

  • Normal View – Check for a clear path behind the HR-V before backing out.

  • Wide View – A wider angle allows drivers to see cars, pedestrians, or cyclists who may be approaching the rear.

  • Top-Down View – A top-down angle is especially helpful when parallel parking.
