Just days after being spotted on a trailer, Honda Malaysia has introduced the new 2021 Honda CR-V facelifted in Malaysia.

The updated Honda CR-V is priced from:

  • Honda CR-V 2.0 2WD: RM 139,912.53
  • Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P 2WD: RM 157,615.91
  • Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P 4WD: RM 162,910.18

New layout for the centre console

These prices are exclusive of SST and are only valid till 31-December 2020. After 31-December 2020, the updated Honda CR-V will be priced from:

  • Honda CR-V 2.0 2WD: RM 145,400
  • Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P 2WD: RM 164,300
  • Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P 4WD: RM 169,900

Compared to the pre-facelift model, prices have crept up a bit more, as Honda Malaysia has included features such as Honda LaneWatch across the line-up, while the 4WD variant now includes the Honda Sensing ADAS suite and a hands-free power tailgate.

Starting with the exterior, the updated Honda CR-V is identifiable thanks to the restyled front bumper and new black front grille. It also features new smoked tail lights and new tail pipe finishing (single on the 2.0-litre variant, dual on the 1.5-litre variants). New dual-tone alloy wheels complete the exterior of the updated CR-V.

Changes to the interior include repositioned USB ports, Active Noise Control, and Remote Engine Start (turbocharged variants only).

As before, the Honda CR-V is offered with two powertrains. The first powertrain is a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine that does 153 PS and 189 Nm, while the other is a more powerful 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine that cranks out 193 PS and 243 Nm.

Both engines are mated to a CVT-type automatic transmission, with power sent either to the front wheels or all four wheels, depending on variant.

Five colours are offered with the new Honda CR-V, which includes Lunar Silver Metallic, Passion Red Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, Dark Olive Metallic and a brand-new option, Platinum White Pearl.
