Honda Malaysia has confirmed the local launch of the all-new Honda CR-V. Set to make its Malaysian debut later this week on 14 December, the C-segment SUV will be offered with two powertrain options: a new generation 2.0L e:HEV hybrid system, and a 1.5L VTEC turbocharged engine.
As we have previously reported, four variants of the CR-V will be available in Malaysia. As shown in the pre-booking page for the SUV, there’s the range-topping 2.0L e:HEV RS model, as well as the V, E, and S variants, which are all powered by a 1.5L VTEC turbo engine.
Output wise, the 2.0L e:HEV hybrid powertrain offers 184PS and 335Nm of torque, paired to an e:CVT with a new framework; this is said to be a first for Honda Malaysia. As for the 1.5L turbo engine, it does 193PS and 243Nm of torque, mated to a CVT. It’s worth noting that the SUV features “advanced Real Time AWD” as well, as the carmaker puts it.
Other key specifications of the new CR-V revealed by Honda Malaysia so far include Berlina Black 18-inch alloy wheels for the e:HEV RS model, an Active Shutter Grille mounted on the front lower bumper for improved aerodynamics and fuel efficiency, a 360-degree camera, as well as the Honda Connect telematics system.
Naturally, the sixth generation CR-V also features upgraded Honda Sensing ADAS, which combines a wide-angle radar, camera, and sonar sensor for Low Speed Braking Control. The Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS) is said to be improved too with better line tracing and steering assistance.
