Setting the benchmark
THE overall concept of the HR- V came about after Honda received feedback from customers who were looking for an affordable SUV that encompasses a sense of security and status while boasting high usability.
By combining the toughness of an SUV, the personal feel of a coupe and utility of a minivan, this vehicle meets all the above expectations.
Honda Malaysia president and chief operating officer Roslan Abdullah says, “Despite the rapid growth of the SUV segment, there were no suitable and affordable SUVs for those who were previously from entry segments. It was missing a compact model that bridged the gap between upper SUVs and entry- level sedans.”
Taking advantage of the huge opportunity, Honda Malaysia continues to keep its commitment to excite the market with value- formoney and attractive products at affordable prices.
Three variants of the HR- V – the S, E and V – were introduced with the price tags of RM99,800, RM108,800 and RM118,800 respectively to meet the needs of the market.
This dynamic compact SUV is the ideal vehicle for Gen- Y singles, young couples and young families who value their lifestyles. It suits people who work hard, spend lots of time socialising and enjoy sports or weekend activities.
The exterior design is based on the dynamic cross solid concept, reflecting the coupe- like aero cabin, strong lower body and powerful look.
The rear door handles are integrated into the side windows to further enhance its coupe- like appearance.
The HR- V also features the Exciting H Design!!! concept, where the H represents a human centre, emphasising the driver and passengers. The solid wing face and unified grille and lights create a stylish yet tough exterior.
Performance wise, the HR- V features a 1.8- litre i- VTEC SOHC engine built on a new Continuous Variable Transmission ( CVT) developed under Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology. This combination enhances the fun and excellent performance aspect for a smooth driving experience while cruising or being stuck in a traffic jam.
The HR- V utilises Honda’s original centre tank layout to achieve class- leading boot space and spaciousness equivalent to a class above SUV.
The high- deck centre console with armrest helps achieve both personal space and usability at a high level.
Through the multi- utility cargo space, various versatile rear seat configurations from utility mode, tall mode to long mode can be adjusted to meet the needs of its drivers.
Its smart interface features include a seven- inch display audio, one- touch turn signal, touch panel auto air conditioning, smart entry with push start button, cruise control and Econ mode for a smooth, at- your- fingertip operation while the speedometer features an illumination ring that changes colour based on the driving mode.
The All- New HR- V offers a comprehensive range of active and passive safety features such as six airbags ( V variant; dual front SRS airbags, side curtain airbags and side airbags), multi- angle rearview camera ( V variant), emergency stop signal ( ESS), LED daytime running lights ( DRL) ( V variant), hill start assist ( HSA), vehicle stability assist ( VSA) and ISOFIX.
Advanced technology features namely the new automatic brake hold and electric parking brake are made available in all variants.
These features can be easily activated with a push of a switch and lever. To further enhance safety during collision, a hightensile steel frame was added to the middle part of the body to improve absorption of the collision force.
The HR- V is available in five colours – modern steel metallic, taffeta white, alabaster silver metallic, crystal black pearl and ruse black metallic.
Honda Malaysia offers a five- year warranty with unlimited mileage and a service interval of 10,000km for the HR- V at all 78 dealerships nationwide.
