GALLERY: 2019 Honda CR-V Mugen Limited Edition – only 300 units available; priced from RM152,900

Honda Malaysia recently launched the CR-V Mugen Limited Edition, where only 300 units will be offered to customers, priced from RM152,900 on-the-road without insurance. This price applies to cars finished in Passion Red Pearl as seen here, with the other colour option – White Orchid Pearl – costing an additional RM400.

Based on the 1.5L Turbo 2WD variant, the limited edition model was first previewed by the CR-V Mugen Concept that first appeared at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show, and later at this year’s Malaysia Autoshow.

The exterior of the CR-V Mugen features body-coloured extensions below the front bumper, along the sides and beneath the rear bumper. It also comes with a dedicated front grille garnish, roof-mounted spoiler and Mugen badging. The 19-inch MDR aluminium wheels seen on the concept isn’t present here, with the car riding on 18-inch alloys.

There are no changes to the cabin, as you still get black leather upholstery, wood interior trim, electric powered front seats, a dual-zone climate control system with rear vents, and a seven-inch touchscreen head unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.

Similarly, the engine is a L15B7 1.5 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol unit that makes 193 PS at 5,600 rpm and 243 Nm of torque from 2,000 to 5,000 rpm. Drive goes to the front wheels through an Earth Dreams continuously variable transmission (CVT).
