    Question Heated external mirrors

    The features of the Veloster Plus & turbo state that there is Heated external mirrors

    I don't really know why we need them in Australia, any ideas?

    Regardless, how do we turn them on and off?

    They turn on with the rear defroster. As for why you need them, um, guess i'll have to wait till winter to find out.

    I used them heaps these last few months I have had the car. Left it outside at a mates place a few times and all the windows and mirrors fog over in the shade, hit the front and rear defrost buttons and all windows and mirrors defrost in only a couple minutes

    You may find too that when activated in rain (at any outside temp) they keep the droplets from accumulating on the reflective surface that distort rear vision.

    Someday you will used that option and find it very helpful. I think the mirrors heat up automatically without having to turn on the rear defroster. When the mirrors are fogged up, I turn on the car and in a few minutes they are clear. You can actually see the fog disappear from the center of the mirror out to the edge.

    This must be a difference between the US and AUS V's, because you definitely have to turn on the rear demister for the heated mirrors to work on the AUS model.

    Guess you have never parked your car outside overnight.
    Beats having to wipe over with your hands on a cold morning.

    Would suggest checking owners manual to see how they turn on and off.

    Do we need them, not really, just like we dont need airconditioning, reverse cameras and sensors, leather seats, climate control etc etc, but gee its so nice to have little luxuries that make our lives so much more convenient.

    Well gotta try to see how it actually works. I don't recall having to turn on the demister. I will update as soon as I get a chance. Like you guys, here in Miami there are not many days where we have to use the heated mirrors option.

    I used to live in Melbourne and now in Canberra (we have a lot more sunny weather and a lot less rain). Yes you do need heated mirrors especially if they ice up, and they do come on with the rear window demisters. All Hyundai models with heated mirrors have the linkage between the two (I have a turbo and we have i30s on the work fleet). Right at the moment I don't need those heated rear mirrrors.

    Canberra is the coldest, driest, sunniest and least windy capital city in Australia. Great for riding my motorcycle (cold is okay, hot isn't good in leather, rain and wind is bad).

    Turn on the rear demister. After 10 mins, put your hand on the side mirror glass. It will be warm. This feature will also help keep them clear when driving in bad weather with a lot of rain
