You Still Can’t Have The Honda BR-V, But Malaysians Can

Unveiled more than a year ago and developed specifically with the ASEAN region in mind, the Honda BR-V has hit Malaysia’s dealers.

It’s available in two grades, named E and V, and can be had from RM85,800 (equal to $19,080) and RM92,800 ($20,635), respectively, on-the-road, with insurance.

Depending on the trim, you get 16-inch alloy wheels, DRLs, rearview camera with parking sensors, 6.1-inch infotainment, keyless entry and go, leather wrapped multifunction steering wheel, leather trim and air condition.

The Honda BR-V can also be specified with three accessories packs, starting with the Utility Package, priced at RM1,280 ($285), which adds cargo tray, trunk organizers, door visor, sun shade and door protector film. The Urban Package includes running board, side step garnish and a tailgate spoiler for RM2,945 ($655), while the Modulo Package offers front and rear lower garnish and tailgate spoilers, for RM3,750 ($835).

Power comes solely from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder i-VTEC engine that pushes out 120 PS (117 HP) and 146 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque to the wheels through a CVT.

The BR-V was awarded with a 5-star safety rating by the ASEAN NCAP,  being equipped with hill start assist, vehicle stability assist and electronic brake distribution, among others.

    It’s also sold in South Africa. Saw one a few weeks ago, had no idea what it was until I googled it afterwards.

    Even though I hate crossovers and CUVs with passion I felt sad a little bit. We all love the most what we can’t get right?

    Why the hell would you want a Honda BR-V?

    Where does it fit in – between HR-V and CR-V, or what? What platform is it on?

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I wonder why someone would crave a car designed for developing countries. Its design is really awful. I don’t think you’re really missing anything here.

      Ask all those who buy Dacias….
      A basic car designed for tough conditions with less to go wrong at a good price – what’s not to like?

      • Wandering_Spirit

        These are as ugly as Dacias but still more expensive than those so they aren’t bargains either. They are the BMW of those who don’t want a Dacia in a sense. I don’t think they’d have a huge share of market in Western Europe. Same for some Fiat models sold in Brazil
