Honda Accord vs Honda CR-V; which car better suits your needs?  

Honda Malaysia welcomed the tenth generation 2020 Honda Accord with a starting price of RM 185,900. Even after the recent price increase, the Honda CR-V’s range topper, 1.5L TC-P, is still priced below the base spec Accord 1.5L TC at RM 175,900. So, should you make the jump and pay RM 10,000 more for the lower spec Accord 1.5L TC? In the new generation Accord, Honda has done away with the 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre engines in favour for a more fuel efficient 1.5-litre Turbocharged unit. It’s essent

25 years of the Honda CR-V - All you need for a family car

Currently in its fifth generation, the Honda CR-V is a spacious family car that is popular among Malaysians. Offered in both 2WD and 4WD, the former is preferred by many, since it mainly sees urban use. The urban SUV body style is so popular to the extent that even brands like Porsche and Lamborghini have at least one in their line-up. Being one of the early adopters and perhaps even pioneering the urban SUV body-style, the Honda CR-V deserves some recognition. But how did it all start? Well, we

2021 Toyota Corolla Cross vs Honda HR-V – add RM 6k for a bigger car, should you?

At long last, the 2021 Toyota Corolla Cross is here. The new SUV from Toyota will be competing in one of the most competitive segments in Malaysia. Let’s dive into one of the most highly-anticipated comparisons of the year, comparing the Corolla Cross against established rivals such as the Honda HR-V. The Corolla Cross is actually closer to a Subaru XV than a Honda HR-V but since the XV is a slow seller here, there's not much sales for Toyota to pull from Subaru. Instead, Toyota will of course b

By and large, the Honda BR-V is a car that we’d happily recommend to families. It’s pretty well-built, seats 7, and features Honda’s famed interior packaging. Combine that with a solid powertrain package, and you can see why the BR-V is such a hit with its audience. 3 years on from its launch (the facelift model remains just as popular), the Honda BR-V remains a very compelling choice for buyers looking who want a no-frills, reliable and value-for-money motoring experience.
