It seems Honda Malaysia quietly launched a new variant of the Honda HR-V. Dubbed HR-V 1.8L SE – that stands for Special Edition – this limited edition model sports a number of driver assistance systems not found on other trim levels of the B-segment SUV.
Based on the most affordable 1.8L E variant – this is evident from the halogen headlights – the HR-V 1.8L SE features four new features. These include Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and even Door Opening Warning.
Aside from these additions, this Special Edition HR-V also gets a dashcam, trunk tray, and trunk organiser.
So how much do you need to pay for these upgrades to the HR-V 1.8L SE? A cool RM105,363.85, which is exactly RM1,363.64 more over the 1.8L E trim it is based on. Given the amount of upgrades you’re getting with the SE model, this is actually pretty good value for money.
There are no other changes to the equipment of the HR-V 1.8L SE. It’s still powered by a 1.8L SOHC i-VTEC engine that outputs 142PS and 172Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the front wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
