Exterior Features

Minimal Noise, Vibration and Harshness

What’s the Benefit?
The HR-V is remarkably capable of providing a quiet, comfortable ride.

The Feature:
Extensive sound insulation is used throughout the HR-V, resulting in a quiet, pleasant ride.

  • Urethane foam is applied inside the pillars to fill gaps and other open areas.
  • Sound insulation in the floor, doors and side panels makes for 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.
  • Active Noise Cancellation on Sport and above trims uses the audio-system speakers to generate sound waves that help cancel out unwanted noise as well.
