Honda CR-V Technology Features

  • 2016 Honda CR-V

    Central Michigan drivers in the market for a new work or family vehicle loaded with the latest amenities, the 2016 Honda CR-V technology features should put it at the top of your list. With standard safety and connectivity features like Bluetooth and a rearview camera as well as available upgrades including navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Honda Sensing safety, the CR-V is one of the best-equipped crossovers on the market.

Connectivity Technology

When most of our drivers hear “2016 Honda CR-V technology features,” their brains go to one place: connectivity. Whether it’s Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, HondaLink telematics, or a satellite-linked navigation system, the CR-V has some of the best in connectivity features. Here’s some of what you can expect when you drive home this Honda crossover:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Each CR-V includes Bluetooth as a standard feature, letting you pair a smartphone and make hands-free calls or stream music wirelessly. Just pair it once and the CR-V will sync up every time you turn the key.
  • Display Audio: The CR-V has an available Display Audio 7-inch touchscreen interface that gives you an intuitive level of control over music and vehicle settings. It also brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone technologies with it.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: A car and a phone don’t always speak the same language, and over Bluetooth, that could mean limited functionality. But Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are designed to bridge that gap, bringing familiar apps like Maps and Hangouts to the CR-V dash.
  • HondaLink: Honda’s exclusive telematics system gives you new levels of access to your vehicle, letting you tap a few times to schedule necessary service appointments and bringing streaming audio, podcasts, and social media feeds to your CR-V.
  • Navigation: The upper CR-V trims have a satellite-linked navigation system available that responds to voice controls, delivers turn-by-turn directions, and can route you around traffic toward your destination.

Advanced Safety

The other half of the 2016 Honda CR-V technology features is built around safety. See our embedded video for how the CR-V’s standard rearview camera system works and then read on to discover the advanced safety features available on CR-V models with Honda Sensing features:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: The CR-V’s available Adaptive Cruise Control system tracks the speeds of cars around you and adjusts cruising speeds to keep pace with the flow of traffic.
  • Forward Collision Warning: The sensors used in Adaptive Cruise Control can also detect how fast you’re approaching another vehicle, and this safety feature issues a warning if it senses you’re moving fast enough toward another car that a collision is likely.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: If the CR-V notices that its driver doesn’t respond to the Forward Collision Warning, this safety feature can automatically engage the brakes, slowing or stopping the CR-V.
  • Lane Departure Warning: This safety feature uses a front-mounted camera to monitor lane markings and issues audio and visual warnings if it notices the vehicle drifting from the lane.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System: This Honda Sensing safety feature helps fight driver fatigue, keeping the vehicle centered in its lane even if it starts to drift.

The 2016 Honda CR-V with Honda Sensing has earned both a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS* and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating from the NHTSA.**

Comparing to the Competition

To give you an idea of how the competition compares, here are snapshots of three other crossovers that compete with the CR-V:

  • Ford Escape: We have a full 2017 Ford Escape review that breaks down all of the details, but the short version is that Ford’s crossover sports a less powerful engine, a lower fuel economy, and a smaller cabin even if it comes close on tech features.
  • Toyota RAV4: While the RAV4 is one of the CR-V’s closest competitors and comes close to Honda’s crossover on tech features, you’ll find yourself with a smaller cabin and a less efficient engine, much like the Escape.
  • Jeep Cherokee: The Cherokee embraces the Jeep aesthetic, and that includes a very basic selection of technology features and nothing that’s comparable to the available Honda Sensing safety package.
