Within one month, Honda’s new HR-V has garnered itself more than 7,000 bookings, making it the fastest selling Honda SUV in Malaysia. This results a waiting period of up to four months, but Honda ensures that the customers will be receiving a quality product made in Pegoh, Malacca.
Officially launched here back in February, the front-wheel drive Hip & Smart Runabout Vehicle is powered by a 1.8-litre 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine coupled to a CVT and produces 140 hp and 172 Nm of torque. It comes in three variants: RM 99,000 Grade S, RM 108,000 Grade E, and RM 118,000 Grade V.
Among the three variants offered, it’s the Grade V that accounts for 65% of the total units booked. We did a First Look video on the Grade V so you can check it out here if you want to know more.
Apart from the HR-V, Honda Malaysia set a new record by receiving a total of 11,047 bookings and more than 6,000 units sold in February. The month before that they sold 6,522 vehicles thus maintaining their No. 1 position in the Non-National Passenger Vehicle Segment.
