The wait is almost over! The highly anticipated all-new fifth-generation CR-V is heading to all 91 Honda showrooms nationwide soon and in anticipation of its arrival, bookings for the SUV is now open starting today, 1 June onwards.
The all-new CR-V has been completely redesigned and reengineered with attention to detail brought to the next level, to offer a premium SUV with a multitude of advanced features beyond what were previously available in Malaysia. The result is a Comfortable Runabout Vehicle (CR-V) that sets new expectations in automobile technology and raises the bar in safety, drivability, sculpted design, interior comfort, convenience and functionality as well as spaciousness in Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs). The all-new CR-V is a perfect example that Malaysians can have both style and practicality in an SUV.
For the first time, Honda Malaysia is introducing its comprehensive suite of Honda SENSING safety and driver-assistive technologies. Honda’s most Advanced Safety Technology, Honda SENSING is the next generation active safety feature to assist drivers by providing warnings and aiding drivers to avoid or mitigate the severity of a collision. Honda SENSING is unique as it uses both monocular camera and millimeter wave radar to enable a more complete view of the road and as an added safety measure. A monocular camera positioned at the top of the windshield and millimeter wave radar inside the front grille are able to achieve greater accuracy as they combine the strength of the radar in object detection and the camera in object recognition.
The Honda SENSING safety suite consists of 7 features, which are Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Low-Speed Follow (LSF), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) that will provide Driver’s Cruising Aid, Frontal Collision Deterrence and Side Collision Deterrence.
In addition to Honda SENSING, for the first time, the CR-V is equipped with a 1.5L VTEC turbocharged powertrain mated with upgraded Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT). Developed under Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology, this new powertrain generates more horsepower and torque than its predecessor – up to 193 PS at 5,600 rpm, offering the next generation performance with superior fuel economy; while the torque is rated at 243 Nm @ 2,000 – 5,000 rpm.
Size wise, the all-new CR-V is built bigger than its predecessor; measuring 4,584 mm in length, 1,855 mm in width and 1,679 mm (2WD) or 1,689 mm (4WD) in height with a wheelbase of 2,660 mm. The ground clearance is 198 mm (2WD) or 208 mm (4WD), providing a bolder stance. Despite its size, the maneuverability is just like a sedan even on byways with the driver enjoying high viewpoint in the SUV.
The all-new CR-V continues to emphasize Honda’s signature class-leading interior spaciousness and practicality. The makeover in spaciousness pushes its already top-in-class cavernous interior and cargo into the next level of unrivalled voluminous. Taller and leggy occupants can rejoice when riding in the all-new CR-V especially during long journeys!
Honda has also reconfigured the cargo space, which can now be extended up to 1,084 litres when the rear seats are on flat mode. The huge space is easily created with just a pull of the lever to lay the rear seats almost completely flat.
These exciting advancements are in addition to other features which have been made standard in all variants, such as 6 Airbags, Reverse Camera, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and Smart Entry and Push Start Button for convenience. The all-new CR-V also comes with 8 sensors in the higher variants.
In terms of its overall looks, the front exterior conveys an attitude with its crisper and sharper design element and strapping grille. Angular body lines run through to the rear where the wide bearing with dual exhaust increased its dynamic presentation. Wing-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights, LED Headlights, Tail and Brake Lights, Tailgate Spoiler and Dual Tone Alloy Wheels complete the upscale presence. This strong and premium character of the all-new CR-V is matched with outstanding ride quality and new class leading technologies to captivate both young and mature customers.
