The sixth-generation Honda CR-V was launched in Malaysia recently, and is being offered in four variants, three of which are turbocharged and available with official on-the-road pricing without insurance. As for the fourth member of the line-up, it is an e:HEV hybrid that will only get a price tag in early 2024. Here’s a breakdown of your options for now:

  • Honda CR-V 1.5L Turbo S – RM159,900
  • Honda CR-V 1.5L Turbo E – RM169,900
  • Honda CR-V 1.5L Turbo V AWD – RM181,900
  • Honda CR-V 2.0L e:HEV RS – price to be announced in early 2024

We should point out that the entry-level S variant is being offered at an introductory price of RM157,900 for the first 750 units to celebrate 20 years of CKD production of the CR-V in Malaysia, so you’ll need to hurry to get one at an immediate RM2,000 discount.

In terms of powertrains, the S, E and V variants all share the same setup that consists of a 1.5L VTEC Turbo engine paired with an Earth Dreams CVT. Only the V gets all-wheel drive, with the S and E being front-wheel drive instead. Here are the specifications of the turbocharged variants:

  • Engine: 1.5 litre turbocharged inline-four petrol with direct injection
  • Engine output: 193 PS (190 hp or 142 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 243 Nm from 1,700 to 5,000 rpm
  • Transmission: CVT; FWD (S and E); AWD (V)
  • Top speed: 200 km/h
  • 0-100 km/h time: 9.7 seconds (S); 9.8 seconds (E); 10.4 seconds (V)
  • Fuel consumption: 7 l/100 km (S and E); 7.5 l/100 km (V)

As for the 2.0L e:HEV RS variant, we mentioned that official pricing will only be available in early 2024. The hybrid setup is similar to the one in the Civic e:HEV RS, incorporating Honda’s Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) system.

This sees a 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine act primarily as a generator that charges a battery, which then powers a front-mounted electric motor. However, at higher speeds where it is more efficient to do so, the engine can directly drive the front wheels through a lock-up clutch. The specifications of the CR-V’s hybrid powertrain is as follows:

  • Engine: 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated Atkinson-cycle inline-four petrol with direct injection
  • Engine output: 148 PS (146 hp or 109 kW) at 6,100 rpm and 190 Nm at 4,500 rpm
  • Transmission: Electronic CVT; FWD
  • Electric motor output: 184 PS (181 hp or 135 kW) from 5,000 to 8,000 rpm and 335 Nm from 0 to 2,000 rpm
  • Top speed: 187 km/h
  • 0-100 km/h time: 9 seconds
  • Fuel consumption: 5 l/100 km

All variants of the CR-V come with electric power steering with variable gear ratio, enabling a turning radius of six metres. Also standard are front MacPherson struts, a rear multi-link setup, front ventilated brake discs, rear solid brake discs and an electric parking brake.

Equipment-wise, standard items for all CR-Vs include automatic LED headlamps, LED daytime running lights, front LED sequential turn signals and LED rear combination taillights. Variant-specific items include LED front fog lamps, which are standard for the E, V and RS, along with a hands-free powered tailgate. The range-topping hybrid is the only one with rear fog lamps, active cornering lights as well as an active shutter grille in the front.

As for the rest of the kit list, the S comes with 17-inch alloy wheels (235/65 profile tyres), remote engine start, walk away auto lock, keyless entry and start, Econ and Sport drive modes, dual-zone climate control with rear vents, a urethane steering wheel, fabric seat upholstery, a seven-inch TFT instrument cluster display, a seven-inch Display Audio head unit (with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), eight speakers, Honda Connect telematics and Active Noise Control.

Safety and driver assistance equipment for the S is also pretty comprehensive, with seven airbags, all-seat seatbelt reminder, VSA, Agile Handing Assist, ABS, EBD, auto brake hold, hill start assist, hill descent control, four rear reverse sensors and a multi-angle reverse camera all being standard.

The base variant also gets Honda Sensing, with standard systems being forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking system (autonomous emergency braking), lane keep assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, auto high beam, lead car departure alert and a driver attention monitor.

Stepping up to the E nets you 18-inch alloys (235/60 profile tyres), paddle shifters, powered front seats with memory function, automatic wipers, a 15W wireless charging pad, leather seat upholstery and steering wheel, a nine-inch Advanced Display Audio system (with wireless AA and AC), four front parking sensors and Honda’s LaneWatch side camera system.

The V builds upon the E by adding interior ambient lighting, a 360-degree camera and a tyre pressure monitoring system. At the top of the heap, the V’s 18-inch alloys come in black instead of silver and feature a resonator to reduce road noise. The range-topper also gets a key card, a head-up display, a Sport drive mode, a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster, sport pedals, a Bose 12-speaker sound system, adaptive headlamps and Active Sound Control.
