For the first-time ever, the Honda Sensing ADAS suite is made available on the Thai-market CR-V, though the feature is limited to the range-topping DT EL 4WD variant.
That said, all variants are fitted with six airbags and Honda LaneWatch as standard.
Powertrain – No 1.5 turbo for Thailand
The updated Honda CR-V gets two carried-over powertrains in Thailand – a 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine (173 PS, 224 Nm) mated to a CVT-type automatic and a 1.6-litre turbodiesel (160 PS, 350 Nm) hooked up to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Keep in mind that the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine that is offered in Malaysia isn’t sold in Thailand.
When will the model be launched in Malaysia?
The updated Honda CR-V may not arrive in Malaysia before 2020 ends, making a 2021 debut more likely.
