There were many 2022 Honda HR-V sightings in Malaysia over the Raya week because of nations in our area being in complete on Raya mode this 12 months. This implies quite a few Singapore citizens drove up their emblem new 2022 HR-Vs as much as Malaysia to discuss with their households right here.
When will Malaysians be capable to balik kampung with the brand new HR-V then? The brand new Honda HR-V shall be coming to Malaysia in someday in the second one part of 2022, however most likely no longer in time for Hari Raya Haji.
The HR-V is a vital type for Honda Malaysia, pioneering the entry-level SUV section that opponents just like the Proton X50 and X70 and Toyota Corolla Pass now compete in. Honda Malaysia will extremely most probably be launching it right here as a in the community assembled automotive identical to the outgoing type.
Which model of the 2022 Honda HR-V can we get?
To begin with, we will be able to rule out the United States marketplace Honda HR-V as it is just referred to as the HR-V there. Globally, this actual SUV shall be referred to as the Honda ZR-V and it’s located in between the HR-V and the CR-V.
This model of the “HR-V” is a bigger car and is in accordance with the Civic as an alternative of the Town, geared toward shoppers who to find the CR-V has grown too huge for his or her wishes.
That is the type of the HR-V that we can get, which is what Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia will get. However realize that there are two other ‘faces’. At the left is the ‘common’ face, which sports activities horizontal bars. The automobile at the proper is the ‘RS’ face, with a sportier glance.
Indonesia will get each faces – the E and E SE variants with the in most cases aspirated 1.5 liter engine will get the common face. The sportier ‘RS’ face is reserved for the type with the 1.5 litre turbo engine. In Thailand, the RS face is obtainable, however no longer with a turbo engine – the RS face is paired with the e:HEV hybrid engine there. Thailand additionally will get a model of the hybrid with the traditional face.
We expect there’s a probability Honda Malaysia may just best be offering the sportier ‘RS’ face in Malaysia with a couple of engine alternatives. In the end, the hybrid Town fashions get the RS face right here, so it may well be the similar for the HR-V. And it will be bizarre for the sporty turbo type to not get the RS glance as smartly. So we may well be having a look at each a HR-V RS Turbo and a HR-V RS e:HEV occurring sale right here.
However that is in fact natural hypothesis, we’ll see. If there’ll best be one variant that will get the RS outlook, it’s going to most probably be the hybrid, as in line with the opposite Honda fashions. Which face do you favor – the traditional face or the RS face? We reckon the RS face can be extra in step with Malaysian tastebuds.
Is the 2022 HR-V now a larger SUV?
The present Honda HR-V on sale in Malaysia has the next dimensions – 4,346 mm period x 1,790 mm width x 1,605 mm top, with a 2,610 mm wheelbase.
The 2022 HR-V measures the next – 4,385 mm period x 1,790 mm width x 1,590 mm top, with a 2,610 mm wheelbase.
Marvel marvel, the brand new automotive has the similar wheelbase because the outgoing automotive. It’s grown most commonly in the case of external period, whilst keeping up the similar width.
You’ll see from the comparability of the aspect profile above that the entrance and rear overhangs of the brand new HR-V are a little longer than the outgoing type.

For many who need extra energy, there’s a turbocharged 1.5 litre engine. After which there’s the e:HEV Hybrid for many who are into a little extra generation of their automotive.
1.5 litre 4 cylinder NA engine
– 121 PS at 6,600 rpm
– 145 Nm at 4,300 rpm

Within the e:HEV hybrid gadget, the 1.5 litre engine works with two electrical motors. The e:HEV gadget makes use of the engine as a rule as a generator the use of some of the electrical motors, which additionally acts as a starter. The second one electrical motor is bigger – it’s used to pressure the entrance wheels as a rule. At prime speeds the place the gadget calculates that it’s extra environment friendly for the 4 cylinder engine to pressure the wheels at once, a lock-up take hold of engages and the engine drives the wheels as an alternative of the motor.
It’s not most probably that we can be receiving the 1.5 litre in most cases aspirated engine right here. The outgoing HR-V makes use of a 1.8 litre engine for its non-hybrid providing – taking place an engine dimension for a in most cases aspirated engine in a SUV frame be a subject being gained by way of shoppers right here (HR-V 1.5 NA is 1,250 kg vs Town hatch 1,151kg). So we predict the 2022 HR-V is usually a turbo or hybrid best providing in Malaysia.

It is because the brand new hybrids use Honda’s new i-MMD gadget which is dearer than the outgoing i-DCD gadget as it’s extra complicated. You’re just about riding an electrical automotive with an ICE generator.
If we take the 2019 HR-V 1.8 V’s RM 118,800.00 with SST price ticket as a baseline and upload 17%, the brand new HR-V’s prime quality e:HEV RS type may just value RM138k. That may nonetheless be inexpensive than the CR-V’s remaining with-SST beginning worth of RM151k, so this can be a actual risk.
