In Malaysia, the CR-V marks the brand’s latest offering on our shores; while it is offered in Thailand with a 1.6L i-DTEC diesel turbo engine and a 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC engine.

“Honda would like to thank every customer for their constant trust and confidence in our automobiles, which enabled Honda to rank number one in passenger car sales for the second year in a row, through the first half of this year. This success is the result of being determined to develop automobile innovations to address the various demands of customers of all lifestyles,” said chief operating officer of Honda Thailand Pitak Pruittisarikorn.
