2019 Honda CR-V Malaysia Specs and Features
The highlight of the Honda CR-V is its Honda Sensing advanced driving aids (ADAS) feature. Of course, it’s not the only SUV to come with this feature as both the Proton X70 and Mazda CX-5 have it too. The difference is that the one in the Honda CR-V is more sophisticated and works better in our local driving conditions.
The Honda CR-V’s Sensing’s Adaptive Cruise Control also comes with Low-Speed Follow, which none of its competitors have. It also adds Lane Keeping Assist, which the Proton X70 lacks (warning only, without steering assistance). The Honda CR-V’s Sensing is also capable of detecting child pedestrians.
However, the Honda CR-V lacks a 360-degree parking camera, which the Proton X70 and Mazda CX-5 have.
It also doesn’t have blind spot monitor but LaneWatch serves the same purpose, albeit only on the passenger’s side. However, LaneWatch works much better than regular blind-spot monitors. Since it sends live video feed, it’s extremely useful in the rain at night, when the windows and side mirrors are blurred. It also doesn’t give false alarms like blind-spot monitors.
The infotainment supports Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, and it offers one of the best integration we’ve seen. When you run Waze/Google Maps, the digital meter cluster even shows a distance to next turn indicator.
You also get rear air-conditioning vents, which you don’t get in the Mitsubishi Outlander.
