Honda Malaysia recently introduced a new exterior colour for its popular Honda HR-V. Called Dark Ruby Red Pearl, the new shade is similar to that offered for the City, and replaces Crystal Black Pearl. Here, we bring you live images of the HR-V in the new paint finish for your consideration.

As you can see, the new body colour is accompanied by a set of 17-inch alloy wheels, similar to those fitted on the Thai- and Indonesian- spec HR-Vs. These replace the previous 16-inch units, and are featured on all HR-V variants offered here – 1.8 S, 1.8 E and 1.8 V.

Seen here is the range-topping 1.8 V, denoted by the LED projector headlamps. Aside from the new colour and wheels, there are no visible changes on the exterior of the HR-V.

The same can be said of the interior, although there is now an optional rear shelf for the trunk, yours for RM550 (GST-inclusive). Speaking of pricing, the HR-V also receives a hike of RM672.44 across the range.

Therefore, the base 1.8L S now retails for RM99,129.67 (previously RM98,457.23), while the 1.8L E will cost you RM108,481.63 (previously RM107,809.19). For the range-topping 1.8L V, it is now priced at RM118,606.03 (previously RM117,933.59).

For those who are looking for other colours beyond Dark Ruby Red Pearl, the HR-V continues to be offered in Ruse Black Metallic, Taffeta White and Modern Steel Metallic. Alabaster Silver Metallic has been dropped from the HR-V colour list, but word is that a new shade will replace that in due time. What do you think of the Honda HR-V in Dark Ruby Red Pearl?
