In the centre console of the Elegance model, you’ll find a comprehensive in-car entertainment solution. The system includes a borderless 7-inch touch-screen display with USB, AUX, HDMI inputs, trip computer and FM/AM tuner. There is also a Bluetooth interface for hands-free telephony and audio streaming, which is linked to the multi-function steering wheel. Added convenience can also be found with front and back electric windows, automatic air-conditioning, telescopic/tilt adjustable steering wheel and fully electrically-adjustable side mirrors, which retract after parking.

Safety Features



The all-new HR-V range is as safe as ever thanks to a host of active safety features. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) help towards keeping you in control during an emergency situation. The hazard lights are also activated in an emergency braking situation thanks to Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) technology.

Safety means peace of mind 209x154

Security means piece of mind

With an alarm system and immobilizer, you can park your new HR-V with added peace of mind. You know its safety features are taking care of security when you’re not around.

Vehicle stability assist

Vehicle stability assist

Vehicle Stability Assistance (VSA) is another active safety feature on both HR-V derivatives. It operates in conjunction with the Honda’s throttle control and ABS to optimise traction and control during acceleration, braking and cornering. Using data from wheel rotation, vehicle speed, steering input, lateral acceleration and yaw rate, it applies braking force independently to one or more wheels and modulates acceleration to help retain control of the car under extreme manoeuvres.
