Honda HR-V Technology
The Honda HR-V was made for adventures around Centennial, Aurora, and Denver. No matter where you go, you’ll want the latest tech at your disposal to make all your drives even more enjoyable.
In this 2021 Honda HR-V technology guide, our team at Mile High Honda will go over the state-of-the-art technologies found in this versatile crossover. Then, when you’re ready to geek out on the vehicle’s tech in person, be sure to contact us for a test drive.
To avoid driving from Point A to Point B in complete silence, the Honda HR-V comes standard with a 4-speaker 160-watt audio system and has an available 6-speaker 180-watt system to easily listen to your favorite tunes. Plus, with the Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Bluetooth® streaming audio, you can listen to your music and even make phone calls while keeping your hands on the steering wheel.
Standard in the Sport, the EX, and the EX-L trims, you’ll also find Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. These popular features allow you to control your compatible smartphone through the HR-V’s infotainment center. Similar to Bluetooth™, you can also make calls and stream your favorite music, but you can also text hands-free and integrate your phone’s navigation system.
To see all your media options, there’s a standard 5-inch color LCD screen and an available 7-inch Display Audio with high-resolution WVGA electrostatic touch-screen. That way, you’ll have a nearly endless array of selections at your fingertips, including Pandora® and SiriusXM® Radio.
Additionally, to stay connected wherever you go, there’s the available HondaLink® system that’s used to connect your compatible mobile device to the 2021 Honda HR-V. Download the HondaLink® app to your smartphone and prepare for customized convenience. Control your vehicle from your fingertips. This app allows you to start and stop your SUV’s engine, lock and unlock the doors, and even locate your parked HR-V in a crowded parking lot.
For your safety and security, HondaLink® also receives timely alerts when your vehicle’s alarm is triggered. Plus, the system can even assist authorities with finding your Honda with its Stolen Vehicle Locator features. Lastly, HondaLink® can control your vehicle with the compatible Amazon Alexa Skill. You can even order packages with Alexa and have them delivered right to your vehicle with Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery.
When driving an advanced crossover such as the 2021 Honda HR-V, you’ll want to make sure it has safety features to give you peace of mind. With this vehicle, you’ll have a wide variety of advanced active safety features to help protect you on the open roads. Some of the HR-V’s standard features include:
- Multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines
- Anti-Lock Braking System
- Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control
- Electronic Brake Distribution
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System
If you’ve driven a Honda model in the last few years, you might be familiar with Honda Sensing®, an advanced suite of safety and driver assisted technologies. Standard in the EX and the EX-L trims, the following features will give you the confidence you’ll need during any drive:
Collision Mitigation Braking System™ – This system helps bring your HR-V to a complete stop by automatically applying the brakes when it detects a frontal collision is unavoidable.
Road Departure Mitigation System – This system detects when you cross over lane lines without signaling. It then applies corrective steering assistance to gently guide you back into your current lane or applies braking to prevent you from leaving the roadway completely.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) – If you want to use cruise control on the highway, this feature helps you maintain a set following interval from the vehicle ahead. If the vehicle in front of you comes to a stop, ACC will also help your vehicle slow down and come to a stop. When you tap on the throttle, your vehicle will maintain your desired speed.
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) – When your hands are on the steering wheel, LKAS can detect when you’re drifting out of the center of your lane and apply subtle corrective steering to make sure you stay where you belong.
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) – When approaching a vehicle or an object in front of your HR-V too quickly, FCW will send audible alarms so you can react to avoid a collision. If you don’t react in time, the feature will apply automatic braking.
Lane Departure Warning – This feature sends alerts to drivers when it detects a lane drift to avoid a potential collision with another vehicle.
Performance & Convenience Technology
The 2021 Honda HR-V is all about convenience, and that shows in the many other features that it offers. The car comes standard with a 1.8L i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine that’s paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport mode.
An available option in the base trim of the HR-V is the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. With this system, power will be transferred to the rear wheels when it senses the front wheels are losing traction. So, no matter what the weather is like outside, your Honda will get you to your destination with ease.
To get going more quickly, the HR-V offers an available push button start. That way, you’ll never have to take your keys out of your pocket or purse to open the car door or start the engine.
Another convenient feature is the available automatic climate with electrostatic touch-screen. Instead of using different buttons to change the temperature, simply use the touch-screen interface to seamlessly manage the cabin’s climate and get nice and cozy.
