2016 Honda HR-V safetyGoshen and Monroe drivers trust the 2016 Honda HR-V safety ratings to ensure their families are protected from harm. After extensive crash simulations, the new HR-V was given the highest mark possible, a testament to its intelligent construction and reliability. Here are some highlights about the systems and technology that help to keep your family safe.

5-Star Safety Rating

Each year the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests hundreds of new vehicles to determine which ones offer the most dependable safety ratings. Three crash simulation tests are carried out to evaluate different impact scenarios: side-crash, frontal, and rollover.

Goshen and Monroe drivers will be unsurprised to learn that the 2016 Honda HR-V received a 5-star overall vehicle score – the highest overall rating possible for any vehicle on the market. This puts it beyond competitors like the latest Nissan Juke, and provides the peace of mind that families look for in an affordable vehicle.

Active Safety Technology

Active safety technology is what prevents crashes from occurring in the first place, and the 2016 Honda HR-V is packed with such features. Standard devices include a tire pressure monitoring system, anti-lock brakes, and vehicle stability assist system with traction control.

Also equipped as standard is a multi-angle rearview camera. Most rearview cameras only let you see directly behind you, but the camera for the HR-V has three viewing modes. In addition to normal, there’s a top-down angle to see directly in front of the bumper and a wide view to let you spot and avoid approaching vehicles.

Passive Safety Technology

Passive technology refers to those devices that spring into action in the event of a collision, ensuring that occupants are protected from injury. The 2016 HR-V is designed with passive safety systems throughout thanks to the Honda-exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, which distributes crash energy evenly to protect passengers. The vehicle also boasts advanced dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, and SmartVent front side airbags to cushion occupants from injury. There are even Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) to ensure that young ones are just as safe as adults.
