Remember the Honda CR-V Mugen Concept that first made an appearance at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS)? Honda Malaysia has turned it into a production model and like the Jazz Mugen, only 300 units of the special edition CR-V will be made.
Based on the Honda CR-V 1.5 TC 2WD (not the Premium variant), the CR-V Mugen Limited Edition is offered in two exclusive colours – Passion Red Pearl and White Orchid Pearl. The bold exterior is made up of Mugen specific Front Under Spoiler, Front Grille Garnish, Side Garnish, Rear Under Spoiler, Rear Upper Wing and Mugen Emblems.
There are no Mugen applications to the mechanicals as such it soldiers on with the 1.5-litre four-cylinder V-TEC Turbo petrol and CVT sending 193 hp and 243 Nm to the front wheels. Century sprint time maintains at 8.8 seconds as is the 200 km/h top speed.
Because this is based on the 1.5 TC 2WD variant, the CR-V Mugen Limited Edition does not come equipped with the Honda Sensing Advanced Driving Assistance System. It retains Electric Parking Brake (EPB) with Auto Brake Hold (ABH), Walk Away Auto Lock and Driver Attention Monitor 6 Airbags, Hill Start Assist (HSA), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Agile Handling Assist (AHA), ABS and EBD.
Pricing wise, the CR-V Mugen Limited Edition is priced at RM152,530 (OTR without insurance), customers will have to fork out additional RM400 for the White Orchid Pearl option.
