The new Honda HR-V has been officially launched in Malaysia. We've gone through the whole anticipation process with you - the preview test drive in Thailand, the local customer previews, the customary spyshots - and...
Those of you who visited Honda showrooms over the weekend to check out the new HR-V will have noticed the seemingly random variant selection for the preview models. Well, we can confirm that Honda Malaysia (HMSB) di...
2022 Honda HR-V S
Launched two weeks ago, the new Honda HR-V is one of 2022's biggest car launches so far. Honda Malaysia collected over 20,000 bookings for the third-generation SUV (the name was first used by a box...
The 2022 Honda HR-V was launched in Malaysia just a few days ago, and if you can’t find the time to check it out in showrooms, we’re bringing you a walk-around video tour of the all-new B-segment SUV.
In contrast to some of my counterparts who live and breathe cars, I kind of dread revealing what I do for a living, but the "so, what do you do?" question is inevitable. The initial "website" and "I write" answers a...
The Honda HR-V is an easy car to recommend. Upgrading from a City or Vios? Want in on the SUV trend but prefer a non-national brand? Daily runner for the family/school run? You really can't go wrong with the latest ...
- The 1.5 Turbo engine is powerful, when switched to "Power" mode going up a steep incline, I was pleasantly surprised to find the car accelerating even with 3 adult passengers onboard.
- The handling is surprisingly good for such a tall vehicle. I was able to take the curving and windy stretches of Batu Ferringhi roads with good speed.
- Copious amount of leg room at the rear even when I had a 6 footer seated on the front passenger seat.
- The seats are very comfortable and supportive, especially the driver's seat. Despite the absence of any adjustable lumbar support, I found it quite much less tiring driving around town (compared with my bimmer).
- Driving position is also spot on - both my wife and I can find the optimum position with ease.
- Lane watch is a good addition along with all the other Sensing suite of features. A 360 view camera would have been good too.
- Aesthetics of the Front LED Lights and Rear tail lamp bar (Macan like) is much appreciated!
- Interior cubby holes and storage is good.
- The CVT gearbox is smooth but when driven hard one will still encounter the usual drone and rubber-banding effect of the belts. One wonders how a DCT (like on the X50) would perform when mated to the 1.5 Turbo engine from Honda..
- The Boot/Trunk is just too small. The angled or sloping rear reduces usable trunk space...perhaps some of that copious leg space could have been sacrificed? Of course with the rear seats folded there is a large amount of space.
- Apple Carplay is good but it really should be wireless
- Personally would have preferred if the Audio controls (volume) on the head unit were manual - nothing beats a knob for quick ergonomic like use!
- Above the 110km/h mark the NVH especially the wind noise and tyre rumble is a letdown.
- Gearbox - given the sporty nature of the engine and suspension Honda should consider an optional gearbox like a ZF 8 speed or an Aisin AT.
- NVH - at this price point Toyota does a better job with NVH
- Trunk space with all seats up should be more usable - at least 2 large suitcases should be accommodated.
