Honda Malaysia will soon launch the Honda BR-V facelift, some time within the first quarter of 2020 (that would be by this month) and in the meantime is accepting bookings for this 7-seater crossover.
The Bold Runabout Vehicle was first introduced to Malaysia in 2017. It combined an SUV design with impressive versatility, making it an all-rounder which turned it into one of the most sought-after vehicles in the market, particularly among buyers with family.
“The BR-V was developed exclusively by Honda R&D Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. (HRAP) for the ASEAN market. It is also the first HRAP model in Malaysia. The BR-V is set to cater to the increasing market demand for a 7-seater car that is spacious and versatile at the same time. Since its launch in 2017, over 36,000 units of BR-V were sold in the country as at January 2020. This encouraging result was translated into 45% (non-national segment) market share in 2019, which helped the BR-V maintain its position as the segment leader.” said Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Toichi Ishiyama.
“To continue offering high-quality products and meeting customer expectation, Honda Malaysia conducted market study and collected customer feedback that can help us understand our customers better. Armed with significant insight of the market, the New BR-V received exciting enhancements that are able to further captivate the hearts of Malaysians,” Mr. Ishiyama added.
The exterior of the New BR-V gets an upgrade with a fresher and stylish appearance. The front design of New BR-V has an improved Front Bumper and New Front Grille, New Lower Bumper Garnish and New Front Fog Light Garnish. At the back, there is a New Rear Lower Bumper Garnish, New Shark Fin Antenna; and a New 16″ Alloy Wheel Design.
The New BR-V maintains the familiar 1.5L SOHC i-VTEC engine that produces 120 PS and 145 Nm of torque, the highest output in its segment. This gives the BR-V the ability to deliver better driveability for a 7-seater
Honda Malaysia believes the New BR-V is the ideal option for customers with families as it is designed to give more space that can fit the passengers as well as various sizes of goods. The third row seats are adjustable with 50:50 Tilt & Full Tumble that can lie flat and fully tumbled to maximise boot space. Further, the New BR-V also has New Leather Seat with added Red Accent.
There is no official price yet but it is open for booking at all 100 Honda dealerships nationwide.
