Exterior Features

Smart Entry and Push Button Start (Special Edition and above)

What’s the Benefit?

The Smart Entry system makes it exceptionally easy and convenient to unlock, drive and relock the CR-V.

The Feature:

CR-V Special Edition and above models use a Smart Entry system with push button start.

  • The Smart Entry system allows the driver to:
    • Walk up to the vehicle, touch the door handle and open the door
    • Start the engine and shut it off at the end of the trip
    • Get out and touch the LOCK sensor on the door handle to secure the car—all without ever touching a key 
  • Likewise, the driver can open the tailgate with just a touch of the release button located above the license plate—it only requires that the driver possess the key fob.
  • And the Walk Away Auto Lock® feature, when enabled, can even eliminate the step of touching the LOCK sensor on the door handle.
  • To enable Walk Away Auto Lock from the Display Audio home screen, touch Settings, next Vehicle and then Door/Window Setup; select Walk Away Auto Lock, and then choose ON.

Important Note: The door-handle LOCK button on previous models has been changed to a sensor on the CR-V. To activate it, users must touch the ridged area on top of the door handle.
