The 2017 Honda HR-V Offers Technology Features That You'll Love!
2017 Honda HR-V Takes Convenience to the Next Level
Often, 21st-century technology attempts to engage us, to alert us, to keep us wide awake and plugged in, but in the 2017 HR-V, technology is primarily employed to foster comfort and convenience. Beginning in the base-model HR-V LX, a telescopic steering column and illuminated steering wheel–mounted controls work to help you get the most out of the time you spend in its cabin. An exterior temperature gauge and air filtration technology both come standard, even in the LX model, and drivers can access Automatic Climate Control by upgrading to its EX or EX-L Navi trim levels. Upon selecting the EX trim or above, HR-V owners will also be treated to heated front seats and a one-touch power moonroof. These features can make a world of difference on journeys that might otherwise seem cramped or uncomfortable! On top of all this, the EX’s keyless Smart Entry and push-button start functions make it easy to get on the road without breaking a sweat.
The engineers and designers at Honda understand that New England drivers won’t settle for a car that can’t keep them in touch with their loved ones, and that’s why they’ve equipped the HR-V with a full suite of connectivity-boosting technology features. We depend on our smartphones for almost everything today, and with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink technology, you’ll be able to sync your phone with the HR-V’s onboard computer. In addition to offering this feature standard, the HR-V LX model also includes a USB audio interface and two 12-volt power outlets.
In its upgraded trims, the HR-V’s convenience technologies only get more useful! Features such as SMS text message capability and HondaLink Next Generation connect your phone to the HR-V’s Display Audio system, so you can enjoy even more of the advantages that come with full connectivity. By upgrading to the EX-L Navi, HR-V drivers will get even more! Voice-recognition technology allows for unrivaled control over the myriad features we’ve already listed, as well as EX-L Navi–exclusive features we’ve yet to mention, such as HD Digital Traffic and Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation!
Endless Entertainment Options in the HR-V’s Three Trims
Top technology features aren’t restricted to luxury vehicles anymore, and drivers behind the wheel of the HR-V are having more fun for less money than was ever possible in the past! For starters, every HR-V comes with an easy-to-use and informative command center. In the LX trim, this command center is a 5-Inch LCD color touchscreen. In the EX and EX-L Navi trims, drivers will receive a full-blown Display Audio system, complete with a 7-inch high-resolution WVGA (800×480) electrostatic touchscreen. New England drivers who opt for the LX trim of the 2017 Honda HR-V will get a four-speaker, 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system, which already includes Bluetooth streaming audio, an auxiliary/MP3 audio jack, and a single USB audio port. Of course, HR-V drivers won’t have to limit themselves to these options; this crossover’s entertainment systems are significantly more accommodating in its upper two trim levels.
Those who choose the EX or EX-L Navi trims will enjoy a six-speaker, 180-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with a greater variety of input options! The HR-V EX ups the ante by including an additional USB port and offering Pandora compatibility. HD radio and Sirius XM Satellite Radio are only available in the 2017 HR-V EX-L Navi, but drivers who go this route are sure to be satisfied with the diversity and quality of the audio feeds that they’ll subsequently enjoy!
Safety in the HR-V!
No discussion of the 2017 HR-V’s advanced technology could be complete without mentioning its standard safety features! When you’re armed with the HR-V’s multi-angle rearview camera, you’ll be able to scan the field behind your vehicle with its wide-angle, top-down, and normal viewing modes. This camera system even offers guidelines that make it easy to maneuver out of tight spots, and what’s more, it comes equipped as a standard feature in every HR-V! Computer-assisted dynamic guidelines allow for greater control and come standard on the multi-angle rearview camera in the HR-V EX and EX-L Navi trims.
