Still craving for more Honda HR-V-related updates? Good, because an ad has just materialised on our sister classified site, stating the indicated price for the range-topping Grade V variant – a nice round figure of RM120,000. Order books for the Honda HR-V are already open ahead of its launch in February.

For those interested in getting a closer look, head over to Mid Valley Megamall as the ongoing HR-V roadshow sees the Grade V variant being paraded. Only one engine option is available locally – a 1.8 litre SOHC i-VTEC unit that pumps out 141 PS at 6,500 rpm and 172 Nm at 4,300 rpm, paired to a CVT gearbox.

Do note that the aforementioned power figures are the ones found on the Thai- and Australian-spec 1.8 HR-V. As for onboard toys, the Grade V HR-V comes with LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED rear combination lamps and 16-inch wheels as opposed to its Thai counterpart.

On the inside, the Grade V variant sports combination leather seats, a seven-inch touchscreen head unit with reverse camera, push-start ignition and an electric parking brake. Safety measures include six airbags, hill start assist, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), emergency stop signal and Isofix mount points.

Unfortunately, indicative pricing for the entry-level Grade S and mid-spec Grade E are still anyone’s guess. Judging by Honda Malaysia’s pattern of pricing its Jazz and City models and its corresponding grade levels, one could speculate that the cheapest HR-V could cost around RM15k less than the Grade V variant.
