Honda CR-V Technology Features

  • 2016 Honda CR-V

    The 2016 Honda CR-V technology features offer Central Illinois drivers one of the best packages of connectivity and safety features on the market. With five trim levels of amenities available, the CR-V gives drivers new ways to sync their life and their vehicle. The new Honda Sensing safety features on the Touring trim level take crossover safety to a new level.

Connectivity Technology

When most drivers think about advanced tech features, connectivity technology that brings pedestrian life and driving life comes to mind. These CR-V standard and available tech features make it easy to stay connected to your smartphone and digital life while behind the wheel.

  • Bluetooth: Most drivers expect Bluetooth on their new vehicles, and the CR-V delivers with wireless phone calls and streaming audio. Just pair your Bluetooth-compatible device to the CR-V and it will connect automatically every time you start the car.
  • Display Audio: This available 7-inch touchscreen system brings a crystal-clear display that makes it easy to manage your media with a few taps on the screen. It also brings advanced connectivity features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: Phone syncing used to be hit or miss, depending on the phone manufacturer, but Android Auto and Apple CarPlay offer seamless syncing and bring your familiar phone apps to the CR-V dashboard.
  • HondaLink: The Honda telematics system brings vehicle services, podcasts, music, and social media together through the HondaLink app, putting familiar phone services and vehicle maintenance scheduling at your fingertips on the phone and behind the wheel.
  • Navigation: The CR-V has an available navigation system that syncs up with GPS satellites for peace of mind when driving somewhere new. Satellite-linked navigation can route you around traffic and find points of interest both at home and on the road.

Advanced Safety Features

With so many Central Illinois drivers choosing the CR-V as a family vehicle, safety is a top priority. The Honda CR-V technology features take its safety to a new level, with standard features like a multi-angle rearview camera (watch our video on this page to learn more about it) as well as the available Honda Sensing safety features, found on the Touring trim:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Sensors on the CR-V Touring let the vehicle monitor the speed of cars around it, adjusting cruise control automatically so you are always keeping pace with other vehicles on the highway.
  • Forward Collision Warning: The same technology that adjusts speed for cruise control can also sense when an accident is likely to happen, providing a warning to alert you to a potential collision before it happens.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: If the CR-V detects a potential collision and the brakes haven’t been engaged, this system can apply them automatically to help slow or stop the vehicle.
  • Lane Departure Warning: A camera mounted on the front of the CR-V watches the markings on the road and alerts you if it senses the vehicle is drifting from the lane.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System: Fight driver fatigue with the lane keeping assist system, designed to watch for drifting from the lane and adjust the wheel to keep you centered.

2016 Honda CR-V Touring models feature Honda Sensing as standard and have earned a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.*

Comparing to the Competition

We know you have no shortage of crossover options, and we think it’s important for you to compare the CR-V to the competition.

Here’s how a couple of other crossovers stand up to the Honda:

  • Chevy Equinox: The Equinox has just four trims to choose from, and while the standard model offers comparable amenities to the CR-V, the trims offer fewer choices.
  • Nissan Rogue: The Rogue has come a long way in recent years, giving drivers some features that compare to the CR-V, but it’s still lacking a standard rearview camera, stereo anti-theft system, MP3 player, and more. See our 2016 Nissan Rogue review for the full details.

Test Drive a CR-V

A suite of modern amenities like those found among the 2016 Honda CR-V technology features are best experienced firsthand. Visit a Central Illinois Honda Dealer near you to see the crossover from the driver’s seat; we suggest starting with the base LX trim and moving up the lineup as desired to meet your needs.

*The 2016 Accord Sedan with Honda Sensing™, the 2016 Accord Coupe with Honda Sensing™, the 2016 Pilot with Honda Sensing™, and the 2016 CR-V Touring have been awarded the coveted 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in recognition of their superior crash safety performance.
