Smart Entry and Push Button Start
On EX and above and Hybrid models, you can now walk up to your Civic, unlock the door, start and drive the car, shut off the car and lock the doors as you walk away, without ever having to touch your key. When the key remote is within 32 inches of a front door, it will unlock with a mere touch of the handle. The trunk lid is accessed in a similar manner. Starting the car differs slightly based on the model’s transmission so watch the video to get the details.
