2016 Honda HR-V Model Information
The new 2016 Honda HR-V Model Information is now available here at Northwest Honda, and our staff is excited to show you all that this brand new model offers. It’s a compact crossover slotted just below the CR-V, and you benefit from all that Honda is known for: reliability, interior versatility and an abundance of amenities. All trims have exceptional driving dynamics, and both the city and highway driving manners are notably refined for the class.
Safety Features Offered in the 2016 HR-V
Safety features are important to Honda, and the HR-V lives up to the automaker’s reputation for the inclusion of standard protective equipment. All trims come with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and a rearview camera. Upper trims like the EX and the EX-L Navi are equipped with the innovative LaneWatch system. It works by activating a camera whenever you turn on your right turn signal. Mounted in the right turn mirror, it shows you footage of your current blind-spots in your central screen display. The 2016 Honda HR-V also comes with safety features such as a rear center three-point belt, a remote antitheft alarm system, an engine immobilizer, child seat anchors and daytime running lights. Rounding out the list is a tire pressure monitoring system, a passenger airbag occupant sensing deactivation, emergency braking assist, auto delay-off headlamps, five headrests and rear door child safety locks.
Engine Information for the 2016 Honda HR-V
Honda is known for their efficient and reliable engines, and the HR-V's powertrain fits the bill admirably. This new offering is powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder engine that makes for 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, and the LX and EX versions get a six-speed manual transmission. Optional is a continuously variable transmission, and the upper EX-L Navi gets this as standard. All models can be equipped with all-wheel drive, however. Of note is that buyers who opt for this get the continuously variable transmission exclusively. the 60-0 mph stopping distance is around 124, which is on par for the class. The suspension is independent in the front, and it employs a stabilizer bar in the rear. Variable valve timing is the norm, as is the single overhead cam setup. The turning circle is rated at an impressive 37.4 feet.
2016 Honda HR-V Features and Technology
Seating is available for five people, and you have three well-appointed trims from which to choose. The LX trim is the base model, and it comes with a good amount of technology and entertainment features. Standard is a 5-inch display screen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player and a USB port. This trim of the 2016 Honda HR-V also comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, full power accessories, cruise control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver seat and a configurable 60/40-split folding rear seat. The latter is known as "Magic Seat," and it lends well towards hauling a variety of cargo. For example, you can fold up the bottom of the seat while leaving the rear seat up. Without any of the seats folded, you get 24.3 cubic feet of space, and with everything folded down you benefit from 58.8 cubic feet. The EX either gains or replaces the above items with a passenger-side blind spot camera (the LaneWatch system), a 7-inch touchscreen display, a six-speaker sound system with an additional USB port and HondaLink. The EX-L Navi comes with just about all of the above, and it provides a few extras as well. In addition to the navigation system namesake, you get roof rails, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and satellite and HD radio.
