Vehicle Stability Assist* (VSA®) with Traction Control is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.
To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System* (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
When you take your foot off the brake, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your HR-V from starting to roll backwards when stopped on an incline.
The highly innovative, next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions, to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin.
The HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response System* helps you get the help you need when you need it most. If the airbags deploy, your Display Audio System* is engineered to automatically attempt to put you on a call with an operator who will forward your location to first responders if needed. It works with any compatible Bluetooth® -paired phone as long as it has reception, does not require a subscription and gives you peace of mind while you’re on the road.
The HR-V comes with six standard airbags. It features advanced front airbag system as well as side curtain airbags with rollover sensor system, which are designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of a rollover. Plus, it has SmartVent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.
