Honda HR-V on show in Malaysia – order books open

2015_Honda_HR-V_Malaysia_ 002

Honda Malaysia has announced that the order books have opened for the new Honda HR-V ahead of its official launch here in February. The B-segment SUV – which made its ASEAN debut at the IIMS in September last year – is also being teased in the metal via a series of roadshows, the first of which kicks off today; the photos here are from the one happening at Mid Valley Megamall.

Initial specifications of the Malaysian-spec HR-V have also come about – we’ll be getting three grades, the entry-level S, E and range-topping V. All will be equipped with a 1.8 litre SOHC i-VTEC unit, paired with a CVT transmission.

No power output numbers have yet been mentioned, but it shouldn’t veer very far away from that found on the Thai-market – and Australian-spec – HR-V, which is 141 PS at 6,500 rpm and 172 Nm of torque at 4,300 rpm, similar to the numbers seen on the Civic 1.8.

In terms of features and equipment, the provisional list for the V grade – which is the only trim level on display at the roadshow – includes LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED rear combi lights, keyless smart entry with push-start ignition, electric parking brake, auto brake hold and cruise control.

The variant also features a seven-inch touchscreen head unit that the higher-end Thai versions get (the Thai S grade comes with a five-inch touchscreen, so it’s likely that our S grade will have the same), a multi-angle rear-view camera as well as a touch-panel auto air-conditioning system.

As for connections, there’s Bluetooth, two USB ports (one in the S) and an HDMI port plus six speakers for the audio system for both E and V grades – the entry-level variant, meanwhile, should come with four speakers, the same number as seen on the Thai-spec S.

One thing we won’t be getting are the two 17-inch wheels seen in the Thai models – the Malaysian HR-V will ride on 16-inch alloys, presumably identical to that on the base-line VTi that will be sold in Australia. As for upholstery trim, combi leather is listed, essentially a mix of leather and fabric for the seat wraps.

As for safety kit, the list reads as such: ABS, EBD and brake assist, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), hill start assist, emergency stop signal and Isofix mount points. It’s known that the V grade will come with six airbags (front, side curtain and side). In Thailand, the S and E variants feature two airbags, a number unlikely to be changed here.

No indicative pricing for the HR-V as yet – all that’s happening at the moment is that order taking for the SUV has begun, and bookings can be made at all 77 Honda dealerships nationwide. As for catching the vehicle in the metal, you’ll be able to do so at the following roadshows:

  • Jan 6-11 – Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur
  • Jan 9-11 – Sunway Carnival, Penang
  • Jan 12-14 – Avenue K, Kuala Lumpur
  • Jan 16-18 – Paradigm Mall, Petaling Jaya
  • Jan 16-18 – KSL Mall, Johor Bahru
  • Jan 23-25 – Village Mall, Sungai Petani

      Whatever the price is, we are getting a lower spec version compare to Thailand if this report is true.

      Our range topping V grade HR-V is merely comparable to the Thai spec E grade, which is a grade lower.

      Isn’t is something very wrong? Seems like the international car manufacturer treat the Malaysian market with less importance.

      We used the be the largest ASEAN automotive market until a few years ago, now we are only no.3 after Indonesia and Thailand. If the current pace continue on, we might be only no.4 or 5 after Philippines or even Vietnam, and we are only getting beggar speced Honda or Toyota.

      Can our respectable ministers and government officers explain to us “the poor rakyat” why is this happening?

        correction. Malaysia was never ASEAN’s largest automotive market; Malaysia was ASEAN’s largest passenger cars market, not sure if it still is though. The largest MPV and pick up markets belong to Indonesia and Thailand respectively for all these years.

          Malaysia was the biggest automobiles market in ASEAN until 2003, overtaken by Thailand.

          Malaysia fell to No.3 spot in Year 2008, overtaken by Indonesia.

          Malaysia recorded most passenger vehicle sales until Year 2011, overtaken by Indonesia in the passenger vehicle catergory.

          Malaysia recorded 3rd most passenger vehicle sales in Year 2012, after Indonesia and Thailand.

          Malaysia has remained in the No.3 spot since, but don’t know for how long as I cannot read into the future

          When the buying stops, the “kekosongan spec” can too.

          Stop making Toyota/Honda the best selling non-National cars in the market & reward carmakers that are willing to offer more value for money. Then they’ll wise up and offer better value as well.

          No point moaning on Paultan to no avail but then you still go out & buy a Honda or even worse, a bloody Toyota!

        Just simple demand and supply. Thailand and Indonesia have sheer larger number of middle class consumers and hence Japanese carmakers will look out for their higher volume markets. As much as i like to blame politicians on problems this is not any fault of theirs.

    I don’t get why Honda Malaysia has to fence the vehicle up if they are planning to show it to the public. I guess we lot are dirty buggers so they decided to keep the vehicle clean?

    Anyhow spec looks good but my bet is it won’t come cheap…the top spec version should rival the Civic 2.0 Navi in terms of pricing.

        The sedan brother of the HRV is the City, it is smaller than the civic. The Civic’s SUV counterpart is the CRV. This is a niche offering. The HRV will not sell as well as the City and Civic. After all Malaysians will go for the Civic for the space or City because it’s cheaper.

    So this is the car that I’ve been waiting for all this while!

    Was a bit disappointed that we’re getting the 16 inchers instead of the nice-looking 17 ones but that’s a small issue. The smaller wheels might have an advantage of delivering better ride comfort. The Aussies do get better safety features like lane watch assist and blind spot monitoring though, but I doubt that they’ll have it fitted on our Malaysian HR-V.

    Rumour has it that the car will be priced from 90 to 110k (sourced from another Malaysian automotive site) and if that is true then, HR-V FTW!

    Here we go again. Taken out some Thailand features: paddle shifters, downsized wheels, and changed the rims. Added in 2 inch more screen and likely thousands more in Ringgit.
    Readers here are anticipating from Honda a reasonable priced mini SUV that competes in Feature Value (not RV) with the 2008/Ecosport.
    TIV for 2014 and Yen is likely down and still we have large car companies who enjoys EEV benefits but pricing their cars like they’re losing money on every sale.

    It looks nice.

    The price should rightfully be below 55k.

    Hah?! This is what we get for high spec HR-V? They already let us down with the Jazz (high spec got no pedal shift, no auto cruise), now HR-V also (high spec got no pedal shift, 16in wheel only, no sunroof)!! Ok lah, bye-bye Honda, I won’t consider or buy your brand anymore!!!

  • Just saw it at midvalley. Verdict, look very cheap. Especially the plasticky interior..feel like “am i in myvi”. Jazz high spec interior is slightly better. Dissapointed :(

    I’m not sure paultan is correct on this.. This hrv on display shouldn’t be the highest v spec.. Check out honda malaysia website the rear combi light is similar to Thai spec tube style rear lamp. Hope the combi seats won’t be carrying over to the v spec.. Plus the price for 120k muz be a approx price.. It’s quite high u can get a 2.0s civic with tiz.. A 1.8 for a 2.0 price .. If arguing it’s a SUV then I’ll say a c segment over a b segment?! Lower segment lower engine cap shouldn’t be priced tat high

      Hmm…you are going to cry, because the combi leather seat is the same as in the road show unit. Go to the honda.com.my and checkout the “Interior” tab, check it out at the bottom left corner of the big piece of interior photo, then you will know.

    The car is nice. The back or rear lamp is not nice.
    They are out of ideas how to make a nice rear lamp. So, they just make or design one which has not been done by other before. That does not mean it will look good. This is the mistake.
    Never design something that look downwards. It looks sad. That’s what the rear lamp looks like – SAD. Bad design.

    On the next facelift, they just have to change it entirely. Totally different lamps.

    I always find that our Malaysian version of Japanese cars , be it Toyota, Honda etc., are always more inferior in terms of accessories and other fittings (lower specifications) than the Thai versions.

  • I managed to see the interior design of HRV at Paradigm mall last week.The car was open for public access. I Was disappointed with few things on the highest specs of HRV.
    1) Poor quality of boot “floor mat” covers which was made by cheap cardboard and glued & stapler with the carpet and you can clearly see the stapler bullets underneath it.
    2) Utility tray is made by stereo-form, it made a loud squeaky sound when I try to remove it to reveal the spare tyre underneath it. Not sure it can be break easily or chip off.
    3)Poor and cheap quality of the drawer (at passenger side) Cheap & thin plastic. The design is narrow but deep.
    4) The rubber tube in between all the doors are poorly installed (looks like the inner thin tube of bicycle being attached on the top to and the bottom without gluing along the door frame. I can run my fingers through tube and I can easily pull the whole rubber tube out if I wanted to.
    5) The suspension is super soft, every time someone sit in or get out of the car, the HRV jerk. I can even see it moved slightly up & down and left and right.
    6) Manual seat adjuster.

    The overall space of HRV is really good but I do hope Honda can improve on the flaws and give us more quality finished and “complete” car, especially on the highest spec model.

  • Agree with Lee.

    The ‘high-spec’ car is a disappointment. Expecting Malaysian to fork out RM120k for a car with such quality/fittings.

    Well, initially i thought of getting one. Now, I think i better take a look at other brands after seeing the HRV for myself …….

    Bought a HRV in Mar.
    Super deal!
    But with oil leak, treads on seats, missing mud guard, louad noise from windows and best of all nosie when in low speed is considered “”there were no abnormalities found pertaining to the engine noise issue which you have highlighted.”” because all new car is inherited with these nosie like the test drive car too!
    the best is it is getting louder after each long drive!
    Good luck to new buyers!!

    if you are ok with very louad music to cover the noise in high speed from windows and low speed from engine compartment you would probably enjoy it!
