Set to launch in Malaysia soon, the all-new Honda CR-V has recently scored a 5-star rating in the ASEAN NCAP safety crash test. The all-new Honda CR-V has been launched in Indonesia and Thailand and Malaysia will soon follow.
In the ASEAN NCAP safety crash test, the all-new Honda CR-V scored 31.45 in adult occupant protection (AOP), 45.81/51 in child occupant protection (COP), 19.5/21 in safety assist, and 9.05/16 in Motorcyclist safety. Overall, the Honda CR-V accumulated a total score of 87.16/100, giving it a 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating.
Over in Thailand and Indonesia, the all-new Honda CR-V is made available with both pure petrol and hybrid powertrains. The pure-petrol version of the upcoming Honda CR-V is powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine while the hybrid version is powered by a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine and an electric motor. Its powertrain details for the Malaysian market have not been confirmed.
In the safety department the Indonesian-spec all-new Honda CR-V is equipped with 8 airbags, driver attention monitoring, lock presetting, active cornering lights, hill start assist, hill descent control, and hill start assist. It also comes with a G-CON + ACE side impact beam.
Of course, the Honda CR-V is also equipped with the full suite of Honda Sensing advanced safety systems. This entails features like Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF), Auto High Beam (AHB) with Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) system, and Lead Car Departure Notification System (LCDN).
This year alone, Honda Malaysia launched the Honda WR-V and the facelifted Honda City sedan. The Honda BR-V has been axed from the lineup and Honda Malaysia has also announced that the all-new Honda Accord will not make its way to Malaysia. Given the popularity of the Honda CR-V and the C-segment SUV market, this family SUV is likely to remain in Malaysia.
