Honda Malaysia’s popular SUV, the Honda CR-V, is now available with two new colour options. The colours Ignite Red Metallic and Meteoroid Gray Metallic colour. The two colours replace the Passion Red Pearl and Modern Steel Metallic choices.
The total number of exterior colour choices therefore remains at six, the other four being Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl and Dark Olive Metallic.
Ignite Red Metallic and Meteoroid Gray Metallic are not new to the Honda range in Malaysia as they are already offered for the City, City Hatchback, Civic, BR-V and latest HR-V. The Accord is also available with the Meteoroid Gray Metallic colour.
According to Honda Malaysia’s Managing Director and CEO, Hironobu Yoshimura, both colours have been popular. The Ignite Red Metallic colour was chosen by an average of 18% of buyers of each of the five models, while the Meteoroid Gray Metallic colour was the choice of 24% on average.
“With the CR-V as the latest model to receive both colour options, we have completed the expansion of the Ignite Red Metallic and Meteoroid Gray Metallic colours into the full Honda line-up. We are confident that both new colours will further accentuate the appearance of the CR-V for customers who seek an SUV with a bolder and modern exterior,” said Mr. Yoshimura.
Since its launch in 2017, the 5th Generation CR-V has recorded an outstanding sales record with more than 63,000 units sold. Of this total volume, more than 27,000 units were of the facelifted model which was launched in November 2020. This year, the CR-V has contributed 12% to the brand’s total sales volume from January to July 2022.
The CR-V is powered by a proven 1.5-litre VTEC turbocharged engine which produces 193 ps/243 Nm. The power goes to the front wheels or all four wheels, depending on the version. Besides the comprehensive list of standard safety features, the CR-V is equipped with Honda SENSING, a suite of 8 active safety systems that help the driver avoid accidents or reduce the effects of an accident.
The CR-V is available in 4 versions – 2.0 2WD, 1.5TC-P 2WD, Black Edition and 1.5TC- 4WD, with prices ranging from RM146,900 to RM171,400 (excluding insurance, Peninsular Malaysia registration).
