Remote start

Hi,
I have started to look for a used B250 4-Matic and Iíve found that car-cost Canada has an excellent look-up for standard equipment and and factory options, year by year.
According to that, from 2016 on, the 250 got in its list of standard equipment ďFOB controls-inc: Windows and Remote
Engine StartĒ. None of the ads on autotrader or dealer sites mention remote start.
I have looked online but cannot find anything on remote start on a B250 except a mention of an app that that for 5 years allows you to start your car from your phone, for free for 5 years, after that, you pay for the app. (on the new E-class)

So, can anyone confirm the inclusion or absence of remote start?

Thank you, kindly

We have a 2015 B250 4Matic and I can assure you that it does not have a remote starter - much to the chagrin of my wife. I have tried for several years to find an after-market remote starter system for the vehicle without success. It appears that there are no systems produced for B-Series vehicles after the 2014 model year. I would certainly appreciate being advised if anyone in Canada has had any success in getting a remote starter installed on 2015 B250.

I have remote car starter installed on my 2014 B250. It will work on 2015 as well.
