2018 HR-V Safety Ratings
The 2018 Honda HR-V passes all the safety tests that let you know we take your well-being seriously. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) administers three safety tests on new vehicles. The 2018 Honda HR-V earned the highest overall rating of five stars1—which is good news for when you want to go on a road trip! The SUV also received five stars for the side crash test and rollover resistance test and four stars for the frontal crash test. This is the kind of safety you and your family deserve.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is a nonprofit organization that conducts five crash tests for accident safety. The HR-V was given a Good rating on the moderate overlap front, side impact, rear crash protection and roof strength tests.2 The small overlap front test resulted in an Acceptable rating, but keep in mind that Acceptable is the next ranking below the highest Good rating. When you drive a Honda, you know you’re in good hands.
2018 HR-V Safety Features
The 2018 Honda HR-V has outstanding safety features that helps prevent accidents and protects all passengers in case a collision occurs. The SUV comes standard with five SmartVent® airbags that immediately deploy and cushions passengers during a front or side collision.
The rearview camera comes standard in all trims. With its multi-angle features, you can back out of a parking space or driveway and easily see behind you. The camera also provides guidelines that indicate your distance from nearby objects and where you are in a particular spot.
The Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control helps you drive on all kinds or roads. The system applies brake pressure to specific wheels when you oversteer or understeer your car and improves your steering control during inclement weather. The Real Time AWD with Intelligent Drive System™ also helps you drive during rough weather. If the roads are slick from rain or ice and your front wheels lose traction, the system strengthens your rear tires to maintain control of your car.
The most impressive safety feature is the Honda LaneWatch™. Available in the EX and higher trims, the blind spot monitoring system also includes a side view camera on the passenger side of the car. When you make a right turn signal, it activates sensors on the side view camera and alerts you to oncoming traffic.
