Honda CR-V Technology Features

  • 2016 Honda CR-V

    The Honda CR-V technology features are designed to keep Tri-State drivers safe and connected behind the wheel, whether driving the base-level LX trim or the top-of-the-line Touring. Standards like a multi-angle rearview camera and Bluetooth give rise to top tech features like Honda Sensing accident prevention and satellite-linked navigation. The best way to see CR-V tech features is to learn about them hands-on, but we have a quick rundown of what you can expect before your test drive.

Connectivity Technology

When most of our drivers hear “Honda CR-V technology features,” they think about the connectivity technology that abounds on the 2016 Honda CR-V. While that’s just a part of this crossover’s advanced technology features, it’s an important part. These connectivity features help set the CR-V apart from the pack:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Standard on each 2016 CR-V, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink syncs up your smartphone and vehicle for hands-free phone calls and streaming audio as well as SMS text message and Internet radio integration.
  • Display Audio: This available 7-inch touchscreen brings intuitive touch controls to the CR-V and adds on connectivity for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, taking the crossover/smartphone connection to new heights.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: These available software features let your Android or iOS device communicate with the CR-V in a way to get the most out of their connectivity, bringing familiar apps like maps, messages, hangouts, and more to the dash.
  • HondaLink: Honda’s exclusive telematics system lets you arrange for maintenance with just a few taps on your smartphone and can read your social media feeds aloud on a drive; it also brings music, radio, and podcasts to your stereo.
  • Navigation: More than just turn-by-turn directions, the CR-V’s available navigation system routes you around traffic and can direct you to points of interest on the way to your destination. Voice controls mean you don’t even need to take your hands from the wheel for new directions.

Advanced Safety

Honda has designed some of the safest cars and crossovers on the road, and the advanced safety features are some of the most impressive Honda CR-V technology features. In addition to the standard rearview camera and Honda’s unique LaneWatch blind spot camera (see our video) the CR-V also has a suite of advanced accident prevention features available, called Honda Sensing:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Radar monitors the speed of the vehicles around the CR-V and adjusts cruising speeds accordingly with Adaptive Cruise Control engaged.
  • Forward Collision Warning: The radar sensors used in Adaptive Cruise Control can also sense when the CR-V is approaching a vehicle too quickly, and it can alert you of a possible forward collision.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: If the CR-V senses that the driver hasn’t responded to a Forward Collision Warning yet, this safety feature can automatically apply the brakes to slow or stop the CR-V and reduce the risk of damage and injury.
  • Lane Departure Warning: A front-mounted camera tracks lane markings and issues audio and visual warnings to the driver if it senses you are unintentionally leaving your lane.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System: If the CR-V starts to drift from the center of its lane, this system can give the wheel a nudge in the right direction to keep you centered.

When equipped with Honda Sensing features, the 2016 Honda CR-V Touring earned a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.*

Compare to Other Crossovers

We think the Honda CR-V technology features are impressive on their own, but we know Tri-State drivers have other options, too. Here’s how some competitors compare to the CR-V:

  • Chevy Equinox: Not only does the Equinox come up short on interior space, it fails to include even the basic features drivers expect, like a split-folding rear seat or a CD player. See our full 2017 Chevy Equinox review for more differences.
  • Ford Escape: Vehicles like the Escape come close to the CR-V on tech features, but to get there, they compromise on passenger and cargo space as well as offering a less powerful, less efficient engine.
  • Hyundai Santa Fe: If the Santa Fe looks like it’s a big crossover, that’s because it is, and the added size and weight sink its fuel economy while driving its price up higher. Despite its added size, it falls way behind the CR-V on cargo space, too.
