The new Honda CR-V was launched in Indonesia last month at the 2017 Indonesia International Motor Show, which we covered live. Indonesia is the second ASEAN stop for the fifth-generation SUV, but what’s being offered in the Republic differs from the Thai-spec car, and should be closer to what we will get later this year in Malaysia.

This official product video from Honda Indonesia showcases the new CR-V, highlighting the features of the range-topping 1.5L Turbo Prestige, which has seven seats and is powered by a 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo engine with 190 PS and 240 Nm of torque from 2,000 to 5,000 rpm. There’s also a five-seater 2.0L NA variant with 154 PS and 189 Nm.

Standard across the board are halogen projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, fog lamps, rear LED light bars, 18-inch alloys, cruise control, audio and phone steering buttons, seven-inch touchscreen head unit, rear AC vents, manual AC, reverse camera, fabric seats, electronic parking brake with auto hold, dual airbags, VSA and Hill Start Assist.

The 1.5L Turbo adds on dual exhaust pipes with finishers, interior wood trim, dual-zone auto AC with nanoe air purifier, rear AC system (roof vents with fan speed control) and smart entry with push start and auto folding mirrors. Also in are a nine-inch touchscreen head unit with navi, multi-angle reverse camera, eight-way driver’s seat electric adjustment with lumbar, leather seats plus a leather wrapped steering and gear knob.

The 1.5L Turbo Prestige is differentiated on the outside by its LED headlamps, LED foglamps and “bold” five-spoke rims (still 18-inch items). Also on the top CR-V are a powered tailgate (with height adjustment), panoramic sunroof, four-way electric front passenger seat, and six airbags with the addition of side and curtain airbags. No digital meter panel as seen in our Civic, though.

The CR-V, a premium SUV in Indonesia, is priced from 432 million rupiah (RM141,018) for the 2.0L. The 1.5L Turbo starts from 468 million rupiah (RM152,773) while the 1.5L Turbo Prestige with all the bells and whistles is priced at 508 million rupiah (RM165,841).

Honda Malaysia is currently gearing up for local assembly and the new CR-V is due for launch this year. Test mules have been snapped roaming, including on trips to Genting Highlands.
