SUV Of The Year – Honda CR-V e:HEV RS

Our pick for the SUV of the year goes to the Honda CR-V e:HEV RS.

The SUV is the most important vehicle category in the market as a large proportion of single-vehicle households today pick them to serve all functions. Many have 7-seats, all have collapsible rear seats for expandable cargo carrying capability. Nowadays we even have SUVs that present multiple powertrain options for those bracing for the impact of revised fuel subsidy policies. There is one SUV that manages to balance all of these considerations and makes a case for itself to serve as the family workhorse – the all-new Honda CR-V e:HEV RS.

The HOnda CR-V e:HEV RS combines the energy-efficiency of an electric drivetrain in city with the range and convenience of a petrol motor on the highway. There’s no need to plug it in to charge and there’s still some pretty solid performance when you put your pedal to the floor.

About VOTY 2024

The Allianz DSF.my Vehicle Of The Year (VOTY) Award ceremony is the first and only vehicle award event in Malaysia that does not hand out paid awards, nor does it charge winners or participating brands any fee whatsoever. Winners are allowed to use the VOTY event logo free of charge in all marketing materials. Event attendees are not even charged for their seat at the award presentation. All car manufacturers that operate in Malaysia are invited to participate free of charge. All they have to do is let our judges test drive their nominated vehicles.

The nominated vehicles must have been launched in Malaysia in the last 12 months and cannot be a localised minor facelift (body-kits, stickers, wheel upgrades, etc). All judging is independent and is put down to a vote before the winners are selected. Car manufacturers are not informed if they are winning or not before the event.

The judges for VOTY 2024 are Daniel Sherman Fernandez and Subhash Nair of dsf.my, Ross Hadi of gohedgostan.com and Joshua Chin of automacha.com.
