Honda & HR-V Edit
The Honda HR-V was the first B-segment SUV in the country. It was introduced in Malaysia back in 2015 and it’s been a favorite among local drivers ever since. This compact SUV offers exceptional practicality, space, and safety features in a modern, sporty package.
Honda HR-V Variants
There are four variants of the Honda HR-V in Malaysia; the 1.8 E, 1.8 V, 1.8 RS, and 1.5 Hybrid. The three non-hybrid variants are powered by a 1.8L 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine whereas the hybrid model has a 1.5L 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine paired with an electric motor. The engine on the hybrid is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT) while the non-hybrid variants are driven by a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The interior of the Honda HR-V is well-equipped and spacious despite it being a B-segment SUV. All variants have smart entry with push start button, cruise control, an ECON button, paddle shifters, one-touch lane change, leather 3-spoke steering wheel and upholstery, multi-configuration ULTRA seats, and a high deck centre console with armrest. Only the 1.8 V and 1.8 RS get an 8-way driver power seat, while the 1.8 RS gets stylish, anti-slip sport pedals.
On the exterior, all Honda HR-V variants except the 1.8 E get LED auto leveling headlights and front fog lights. The 1.8 E instead gets halogen headlights with manual levelling and bulb front fog lights. All variants get daytime running lights, LED tail lights, side mirrors with turning lights, a shark fin antenna, and a dark chrome licence garnish.
The sportier 1.8 RS gets sportier accents with a sport type front grille, mesh front fog garnish, sport black front and rear lower bumpers, side sills, door mirrors, and a dark chrome outer door handle. It also gets 18-inch wheels instead of the 17-inch ones found on the other variants.
The cabin space of the Honda HR-V is generous for a compact SUV. It measures 4,334 mm in length, 1,772 mm in width, and 1,605 mm in height. The decent dimensions coupled with Honda’s practical layout allows the HR-V to comfortably fit five adults. It has a boot space of 437-liters which can be expanded to 1,032-liters with the rear seats folded down. The boot also has a low floor and wide opening making for easy loading and unloading of heavy items.
The Honda HR-V has a 7-inch display audio system across the range that supports Apple Carplay, Android Auto connectivity, and hands-free telephone (HFT). It also has two USB ports, an accessory port, and four speakers.
The 1.8L engine on the non-hybrid variants produces a maximum power of 142 PS (105 kW) at 6,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 172 Nm at 4,300 rpm. The 1.5L engine on the hybrid produces a maximum power of 132 PS (97 kW) at 6,600 rpm and a maximum torque of 156 Nm at 4,600 rpm. The electric motor produces a maximum power of 29.5 PS (22 kW) from 1,313 - 2,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 160 Nm from 0 - 1,313 rpm. Combined power from the engine and electric motor is 152 PS (112 kW) while the combined torque is 190 Nm.
The HR-V comes with Honda’s usual safety suite to give drivers peace of mind. The safety features include six SRS airbags, ISOFIX, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Traction Control System (TCS), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Hill Start Assist (HSA), multi-angle rearview camera, and a security alarm with immobiliser. However, only the 1.8 V and 1.8 RS have the Honda LaneWatch Camera (LWC). As a more budget-friendly offering, all variants of the Honda HR-V in Malaysia do not have Honda SENSING.
As the first B-segment SUV in the Malaysian market, the Honda HR-V has managed to remain as one of the best selling cars in the segment. It’s all thanks to its modern styling, all-round practicality, and affordable price tag. For drivers who need an SUV that drives well around town and has enough space for road trips, the HR-V is a great choice.
