From the entry-level LX model to the top-of-the-line EX-L Navi, drivers will be hard-pressed to find comparable models with the same high level of technology. And along with available AWD, excellent fuel economy, and other features and equipment, the technology helps make the HR-V one of the most versatile and comfortable crossovers on the road.

Standard Safety Features

With safety as a priority, every HR-V model comes with standard safety features that include:

2018 Honda HR-V Driving

2018 Honda HR-V Gray

Anti-Lock Braking System – This system allows the tires to keep good tractive control with the road while braking so the wheels don’t lock up and cause skidding.

2018 Honda HR-V Rear

Electronic Brake Distribution – This system can apply individual amounts of pressure to each of the four wheels based on road conditions, speed, or other factors in order to bring the HR-V to a stop more quickly and safely.

2018 Honda HR-V Wheel

Tire Pressure Monitoring System – This system monitors the pressure in each of the four tires and notifies drivers when one or more needs to be inflated to keep the HR-V safe on the road.

2018 Honda HR-V Light

Daytime Running Lights – Illuminate the road ahead while also ensuring that the HR-V is clearly visible to oncoming vehicles, no matter what the weather may be like.

2018 Honda HR-V Safety

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera – With normal, wide, and top-down views, the rearview camera makes backing in and out of tight spaces so much easier.

    Upgraded Safety Features

    The EX also adds more safety features to the HR-V. Honda LaneWatch is a camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror and displays a live video feed of activity going on in the driver’s blind spot when a right lane change is signaled. Drivers will be able to see up to four times more using Honda LaneWatch than using the mirror alone. Other upgraded safety features include push-button start and keyless entry, so you can get inside your HR-V fast without having to dig in your bags or pockets for the keys.

The EX-L Navi Model

For drivers who want the HR-V model with the most technology, the EX-L Navi is the one to consider. It incorporates all the upgrades and additions you’ll see on the EX and adds even more features such as:
