The sixth-generation Honda CR-V has been launched in Malaysia and is being offered in a choice of four variants, three of which are powered by a 1.5 litre turbocharged inline-four petrol engine. The turbo trio starts from RM159,900 on-the-road without insurance and includes the S, E and V AWD, while pricing for the sole hybrid variant (2.0L e:HEV RS) will only be announced next year.

Prior to the CR-V’s launch, Honda Malaysia began taking orders for the SUV in November this year, and the company announced today that it has managed to collect over 2,000 bookings in the one month since then. It added that the waiting period for the locally-assembled (CKD) model currently stands at between two to three months.

The company also pointed out that it expects deliveries to amount to 1,000 units per month, with the V AWD expected to be the most popular among customers. For reference, the V AWD retails at RM181,900, making it RM12,000 more expensive than the mid-range E that goes for RM169,900, and RM22,000 more than the base S which sells for RM159,900.
