We’ve suspected the local debut of the 2022 Honda HR-V for quite some time now, and Honda Malaysia finally confirmed it today. The Japanese carmaker just opened bookings for the new B-segment SUV, and some key specifications of the new model were revealed as well.
According to the teaser shared by Honda Malaysia, the hybrid model of the 2022 HR-V with the 1.5L i-MMD e:HEV powertrain is confirmed; it’s touted as the “most advanced” in the B-segment market. On top of that, it will also get the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance safety systems and sequential turn signals.
Aside from that, there’s a good chance the all-new HR-V will also be offered with a 1.5L turbocharged VTEC engine; this will make it more appealing to customers that don’t fancy the hybrid powertrain. Of course, there’s also the much more modern styling of the SUV.
The 2022 Honda HR-V is now open for booking in Malaysia. Of course, the local pricing of the B-segment SUV has not been revealed yet – we’ll find out for ourselves once the new HR-V is launched here sometime in Q3 2022.
