Honda CR-V Gets New Meteoroid Gray And Ignite Red Metallic Paint Options In Malaysia

The locally-assembled Honda CR-V is now available in Ignite Red and Meteoroid Gray.

The 5th generation Honda CR-V may be a little long in the tooth, but Honda Malaysia are not done expanding the customer options for this popular vehicle. The company announced today that two new colours would be introduced for the SUV – Meteoroid Gray Metallic and Ignite Red Metallic. These two colours replace the previous shades of Modern Steel Metallic and Passion Red Pearl. Meteoroid Gray Metallic and Ignite Red Metallic debuted in Malaysia on the latest City Hatchback earlier late last year. Honda Malaysia then introduced the two shades to other CKD models like the City, Accord and BR-V of this year as well as making it available from the get-go on the all-new HR-V and all-new Civic.

With the introduction of these colours on the Honda CR-V, Honda Malaysia has completely phased out Passion Red Pearl and Modern Steel Metallic and introduced their more vibrant alternatives to the market.

Honda Malaysia (or the Company) today introduced two new colour options in its all-rounder Comfortable Runabout Vehicle, the CR-V, which are the Ignite Red Metallic colour that further elevates the exterior styling of the CR-V with a more vibrant appearance, and Meteoroid Gray Metallic colour that highlights the rugged look of the model. The new colours that replace the Passion Red Pearl and Modern Steel Metallic colours provide fresh choices for the customers.

Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Hironobu Yoshimura said, “The Ignite Red Metallic and Meteoroid Gray Metallic colours received good market acceptance since they were introduced in the Honda models, namely City, City Hatchback, Civic, BR-V and the newly-launched All-New HR-V, while the Accord also offers the Meteoroid Gray Metallic colour. Both colours were the popular options in these models; the Ignite Red Metallic colour contributed an average of 18% to the sales of each of the five models, while the Meteoroid Gray Metallic colour contributed an average of 24% to the sales of each of the six models. With the CR-V as the latest model to receive both colour options, we have completed the expansion of the Ignite Red Metallic and Meteoroid Gray Metallic colours into the Honda line-up. We are confident that both new colours will further accentuate the appearance of the CR-V for customers who seek an SUV with a bolder and modern exterior.”

The CR-V has won the hearts of Malaysians with its styling, elegant interior, and exceptional driving performance. Since its launch in 2017, the 5th Generation CR-V recorded an outstanding sales record with more than 63,000 units sold and the facelifted model which was launched in November 2020, contributed more than 27,000 units to the total sales to-date. The CR-V also contributed 12% to the Company’s total sales from January to July 2022. The excellent sales performance attests to the positive acceptance of advanced technology as the CR-V is packed full of innovative features that deliver the Joy of Buying for the customers.

The CR-V is powered by a 1.5L VTEC Turbocharged engine that can generate maximum power output of 193PS and maximum torque of 243Nm, providing a thrilling drive for an SUV. In addition to the standard and unique safety features, the CR-V is equipped with Honda SENSING, which has eight safety features to provide more peace-of-mind for the customers. The CR-V has a dynamic design with spacious interior and great versatility. The model has a boot capacity of 522 litres when the rear seats are up, and 1,084 litres when they are folded down, further enhancing the spaciousness and increasing the functionality of the SUV.

As an SUV with a complete package, the CR-V is the ideal vehicle for families and professionals who desire an SUV with next-level sophistication and style, and at the same time, suitable for both leisure and exciting drive. The CR-V is available in four variants, which are 2.0L 2WD, 1.5L TC-P 2WD, 1.5L TC-P 4WD and Black Edition.
