For the Vietnam market, the new CR-V facelift will be available in 4 variants – E, G, L, and LSE, with the latter being a new addition. The facelifted CR-V also gains revised 18-inch alloy wheels, in addition to the new front and rear bumpers.

All variants are powered by an E85 ethanol-compatible L15BG 1.5-litre VTEC Turbo four-cylinder petrol engine that does 190 PS and 243 Nm.

No word on when will Honda Vietnam introduce the facelifted CR-V, but considering that dealers in Vietnam are offering massive discounts, hinting that a debut is around the corner.

Back in Malaysia, the updated Honda CR-V may not arrive before 2020 ends, making a 2021 debut more likely. Bear in mind that apart from the updated CR-V, Honda Malaysia also has the all-new City (and likely City Hatchback) in the pipeline as well.

Vehicles sold by official channels in Vietnam are left-hand drive, so right-hand drive markets like Malaysia need to wait until the model is introduced in Thailand.
