Honda Malaysia today finally launched the all-new 2022 Honda HR-V and announced the pricing for the new model after teasing us for months.
Having received more than 20,000 bookings to date, there will be four variants of the all-new HR-V with prices as mentioned below:

There will be three powertrain options depending on variants. Starting things off is the entry level HR-V 1.5L S variant which comes with the naturally aspirated DOHC i-VTEC engine which produces 121 PS and 145 Nm of torque.
Moving up the ladder, the HR-V 1.5L E and 1.5L V variants are powered by the same 1.5L VTEC Turbo engine as the new Civic, producing 181 PS and 240 Nm of torque.
