Those interested in placing early bookings for the upcoming Honda CR-V can do so at all 91 Honda showrooms nationwide, beginning today onwards.
For the first time, Honda Malaysia is introducing its comprehensive suite of Honda SENSING safety and driver-assistive technology in the CR-V, a next generation active safety feature to assist drivers by providing warnings and aiding drivers to avoid or mitigate the severity of a collision.
The technology uses both monocular camera and millimeter wave radar to enable a more complete view of the road and as an added safety measure.
The Honda SENSING safety suite consists of seven features – 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 All-New CR-V is equipped with a 1.5L VTEC turbocharged powertrain mated with upgraded Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT), generating 190hp at 5,600rpm and 243Nm @ 2,000-5,000rpm.
The all-new CR-V is also 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 as well as with ground clearance of 198mm (2WD) or 208 mm (4WD).
Honda has also reconfigured the cargo space, which can now be extended up to 1,084 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.
The CR-V also includes other features made standard in all variants, such as six airbags, reverse camera, vehicle stability assist (VSA), smart entry and push start button, as well as eight sensors in the higher variants.
It has also received a new design, with a front exterior featuring a crisper and sharper design element and strapping grille, along with angular body lines that run through to the rear.
