For many drivers and their families, the entertainment features in their vehicles provide an exciting break from the drab and the ordinary! In the baseline LX trim of the 2017 Honda HR-V, the excitement begins with a four-speaker, 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system that brings satisfying sound to every inch of its interior. Drivers and passengers in this year’s HR-V will be able to play music using its USB audio interface, its MP3/auxiliary input jack, and its Bluetooth streaming audio setting! Those who choose the HR-V’s LX trim will be able to coordinate the functioning of these technologies by using its centrally located 5-inch color LCD screen.
There’s even more fun to be had in the 2017 HR-V’s upper level trims! In its EX and EX-L Navi builds, the HR-V comes equipped with a 180-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with six speakers. Additionally, in both of these trims, the aforementioned LCD screen is upgraded to a 7-inch, high-resolution WVGA (800×480) electrostatic touchscreen. EX HR-V models include a second USB audio port and offer thousands of additional music options with Pandora compatibility! Those who desire a more diverse selection of music and entertainment functions would do well to upgrade to the HR-V EX-L Navi, which comes standard with HD radio and Sirius XM satellite radio.
Breathe Easier with HR-V Convenience Features
In some crossover SUVs, a vast selection of technology features can actually make it more difficult to focus on the road! The HR-V, however, offers standard convenience features that make it easy to stay in control. Each of the HR-V’s three trims includes features such as Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and speed-sensitive volume control, which can help to eliminate common distractions. Thanks to the LX’s illuminated steering wheel–mounted controls, you won’t have to take your hands from the wheel to activate the cruise, audio, and phone functions that you enjoy and depend on! 12-volt power outlets are also a standard feature in the HR-V LX trim, so you’ll never have to worry about keeping your favorite devices charged and accessible.
By upgrading to the HR-V EX trim, Detroit drivers will gain access to today’s most useful convenience and connectivity technologies. This trim’s selection of standard features includes HondaLink Next Generation and SMS text message functionality, so you can sync your phone and stay in touch with loved ones on the go! In addition, HR-V EX passengers will be able to create their ideal driving conditions by utilizing their vehicle’s Automatic Climate Control, one-touch power moonroof, and heated front seats. The EX also offers Smart Entry and push-button start as standard features.
In addition to the convenience features mentioned above, the Honda HR-V EX-L Navi comes equipped with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation and Honda HD Digital Traffic. Drivers of this HR-V model will be able to access and command their technologies using either voice-activated controls or steering wheel–mounted buttons!
HR-V Technology Brings Vehicle Safety into the 21st Century
Whether you choose its LX, EX, or EX-L Navi trim, your HR-V will come equipped with safety technologies that you’re sure to appreciate. For starters, Brake Assist works to keep you and your passengers safe on the road. It isn’t easy to decelerate quickly when you’re caught off guard, but with the Brake Assist feature, sharp pressure on the brake pedal will automatically trigger the full force of the HR-V’s braking system. Of course, not all collisions occur on the highway when you’re moving at high speeds. To bring you the added measure of safety that comes from increased awareness of your surroundings, the HR-V has been equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. For even greater protection, the multi-angle rearview camera on HR-V EX and EX-L Navi trims both offer dynamic guidelines.
