Honda All-New Winsome Runabout Vehicle

Honda Malaysia  announced that the highly anticipated Honda Small SUV, the All-New Winsome Runabout Vehicle (WR-V) is now open for booking at all 101 dealerships nationwide. The Small SUV by Honda is set to be the next trendsetter that will win the hearts of SUV fans.

Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Hironobu Yoshimura said, “We are thrilled to be the first Japanese mass market manufacturer to introduce a brand-new Small SUV in the Non-National Segment to Malaysians, set to launch in Q3 2023. The All-New WR-V delivers a unique experience to our customers with the distinctive character of a Honda SUV by combining sporty style, advanced technology, safety features, top-notch performance and high ground clearance. The All-New WR-V is the ideal companion for young adults and families who seek a Small SUV that exudes a vibrant and bold personality to complement their active lifestyle.”

The sporty appearance of the All-New WR-V is amplified by its compact, well-proportioned design. The model measures 4,060mm in length, 1,780mm in width and 1,608mm in height. With a high ground clearance of 207mm, which surpasses cars from a class above, the All-New WR-V offers practicality and is easy to manoeuvre for urban commutes.

The model will be available with an RS variant that sports a newly designed RS emblem, unique Front Grille and 17” Dual-Tone Alloy Wheels. Its sleek and sporty look is enhanced by coupé-style rear door handles, giving it an edgy stylishness.

The All-New WR-V also features a Power Retractable Door Mirror, Auto LED Headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) as well as LED Front Fog Lights and LED Sequential Turn Signals.

Equipped with a powerful engine, the All-New WR-V sets a new benchmark with a 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC engine which generates a maximum power of 121PS and a maximum torque of 145Nm. Integrated with the Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) with G-design shift technology, the all-new Small SUV realises the perfect balance between excellent fuel economy and driving performance.

Honda Malaysia is committed to providing customers with added peace of mind when driving the Small SUV. Thus, the All-New WR-V is also fitted with a host of safety features, including Honda SENSING, a comprehensive and advanced safety technology consisting of eight safety functions:
*Lead Car Departure Notification (LCDN)
*Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
*Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
*Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
*Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS)
*Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
*Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
*Auto High Beam (AHB)

Further strengthening the sense of safety for customers is Honda LaneWatch, which increases confidence and convenience while navigating roads with multiple lanes, and Honda CONNECT, an innovative technology that allows customers to access a variety of functions via their smartphones.

In the run-up to the launch of the Small SUV, Honda Malaysia will arrange exclusive previews in selected Honda dealerships for customers to be among the first in Malaysia to get up close with the All-New WR-V. Details of the participating dealerships are listed in Table 1.
