2021 Honda HR-V Vti-S CVT 2WD Passion Red
My Aussie MY2021 HRV does not come with the start/stop feature either, thank goodness.There was an electronically knowledgeable UK member who posted about numerous battery issues with his UK HRV.
He was data logging his HRV charging voltage and his HRV also had the variable charging strategy as North American HRV's.
However he never mentioned the capacity (CCA's) of his HRV battery nor if his HRV had the start/stop feature.
Start/stop technology has caused more issues that it has solved in North America.
1st, starter failure was common so the auto manufacturers had to install upgraded starters.
Then the small batteries were dying so the auto manufacturers had to go AGM batteries with greater capacity.
Then the manufacturers had to install a start/stop OFF button on the dash so folks could disable it.
The start/stop function in Hadley's UK HRV would explain why Honda installed a larger capacity battery (600 CCA) in his UK HRV than a North American HRV (500CCA).
The North American HRV's do not have the start/stop feature.
