Though it’s not time for a facelift yet, Honda has given its Honda Stream an equipment update. The second generation Stream is now called the Honda Stream RSZ and as you can expect from its name, it comes with the nice RSZ bodykit that you get when you buy a parallel import Stream in Malaysia, so now the sportier look is available with the official Honda Malaysia import as well.
Other than the bodykit complete with front foglamps, the new Stream RSZ also gets larger 17 inch alloy wheels to match the kit, which I feel was quite necessary because if the original Stream’s 15 inch wheels were retained, they would look pretty odd filling the wheelarches of the sporty looking body. The High Intensity Discharge headlamps are smoked and have light sensors to turn on automatically in the dark.
The steering wheel is leather-wrapped and now feature paddle-shifts, but no steering wheel audio controls though. The interior is black instead of the regular Stream’s beige. While some of the product photos you’ll see after the jump show a version without a sunroof, the Honda Stream RSZ we get here will retain the regular Stream’s sunroof.
The new Stream RSZ will be sold for RM155,980 OTR with insurance alongside the original Stream, priced at 149,800.00 OTR with insurance. That’s a slight over RM6,000 premium over the regular Stream, but with the extra equipment you get its pretty decent. For now, the regular Stream will still be available until CBU stocks are cleared out but in the future only the Honda Stream RSZ will be available.
The Stream RSZ comes in 4 colours – Premium White Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, Polished Metal Metallic and New Red Pearl. The RSZ Stream will be available at dealers from the 26th of February onwards. It comes with a 3 year (100,000 km) warranty and free service for the first 6 months (10,000 km).
