Today, Honda Malaysia has officially launched the completely re-engineered All-New CR-V which officers comprehensive suite of new, class-leading features from its exterior, interior, advanced powertrain to advanced safety technology.
All-New CR-V owners will feel the power and noticeably outstanding driving performance because, for the first time in a CR-V model, customers will be given three options of turbo variants, 1.5L Turbocharged Premium 2WD, 1.5L Turbocharged 2WD, and 1.5L Turbocharged 4WD. A 2.0L i-VTEC 2WD variant will also be available. Both engine sizes will have Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) to provide a balance of driving performance and fuel efficiency as well as paddle shift to give a more precise driving experience.
The car has also received a major makeover for the exterior giving more ground clearance of 198mm on the 2WD and 208mm on the 4WD, comparing to the previous generation of 170mm. Most of the lights have been converted to LED lights like the headlights, daytime running lights, tail lights, brake lights and front fog lights giving you better illuminations at night.
The cabin space has been given an improvement with 90mm more leg space and seat configurations for transporting goods that will give you a cargo space of up to 1,084 litres. This is complemented by the Programmable Power Tailgate, where customers can easily control the height and opening of the tailgate with a one-push button and stop and hold programmable height.
Interior wise, it is equipped with a 7-inch Advanced Display Audio which supports Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto. Other than that, it comes with Dual-Zone air conditionings to ensure front and rear passengers are comfortable and a rear USB port to easily charge their devices. The handbrake of the car has been removed and replaced with an Electronic Parking Brake which frees up space and the Auto Brake Hold will make driving in congested traffic more bearable, with a push of a button the vehicle stationary position is held without the need of stepping the breaks.
