The new Dark Ruby Red Pearl exterior colour has been a hit among customers since its introduction on the Jazz and City. For that, Honda Malaysia is now offering the new shade to the HR-V model lineup. Not only that, the crossover also comes with newly designed 17-inch wheels.

Since its introduction in February 2015, Honda Malaysia has sold 28,500 units of the HR-V as of April 2016. The company is optimistic that the new colour will be well received by customers, and aims to sell 1,500 units of the crossover per month.

“Based on market feedback, we have also introduced a new 17” wheel design which will further enhance the look of the HR-V. We are positive that the new colour option for the HR-V will further enhance its popularity and meet the markets demand.”
