What’s the Benefit? Drivers can start their HR-V before they get in, so it’ll already be cooled off inside on a hot day—or warmed up and defrosted on a cold one—for exceptional comfort and convenience.
The HR-V’s remote engine start feature is very easy to use.
It works when the remote is within about 100 feet of the vehicle.
Just push the LOCK button on the remote and then push and hold the ENGINE START button for at least a second—the starter will fire up the engine, and the automatic climate control system will begin conditioning the interior to a temperature of 72º F.
When you reach the HR-V with the remote in your possession, you can enter the vehicle as normal—the engine will keep running.
To drive, step on the brake pedal and push the ENGINE START button once; the instruments will illuminate and you’ll be ready to go.
