I believe the HR-V sport all come without climate control...the "auto" setting affects many things
Page 165 of the 2016 HR-V owner's manual:Also maxing out the temp? that requires tapping so many times, or holding down several seconds. Knobs are twist once.
The 2019 has the same feature... from Lo, I can swipe it up once to get to 72, then once more to get to Hi. Or from Hi > 72 > Lo. I don't have to be at those temps to use the swipe, it's just goes to the next step in the direction you want.Using Automatic Climate Control
If any icons are selected while using the climate control system in auto, the function of the icon that was selected will take priority. The AUTO indicator will go off, but functions unrelated to the icon that was selected will be controlled automatically.
To prevent cold air from blowing in from outside, the fan may not start immediately when the AUTO icon is selected. If the interior is very warm, you can cool it down more rapidly by partially opening the windows, turning the system on auto, and setting the temperature to low. Change the fresh air mode to recirculation mode until the temperature cools down.
When you set the temperature to the lower or upper limit, Lo or Hi is displayed.
You can raise or lower the temperature or fan speed setting flicking either control icon.
