Minimal Noise, Vibration and Harshness

What’s the Benefit?

The CR-V Hybrid is designed to provide a quiet, comfortable ride.

The Feature:

Extensive measures have been employed throughout the CR-V Hybrid to provide a quiet and pleasant ride.

  • Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) uses the audio-system speakers to generate “anti-noise” sound waves that cancel unwanted noise.
  • A “floating” rear-suspension subframe design helps prevent noise and vibration from entering the cabin.
  • Urethane foam is applied inside the pillars to fill gaps and other open areas.
  • Highly effective door seals and sound insulation in the floor, doors and side panels provide excellent sound control.
  • Even the roof is lined with material that absorbs noise and controls vibration.
  • Both the hood and instrument panel are also insulated to help reduce engine noise.
  • All of these refinements help ensure that the cabin of the CR-V Hybrid remains quiet.
