'New' CR-Z coming to Malaysia this month

For Malaysian enthusiasts who might have been waiting eagerly, the 'new' (i.e. MMC) CR-Z will be launched here in Malaysia this month itself, the 21st, in fact right after the 'Chinese New Year' week (i.e. next week), less than 2 weeks away. 

My understanding is we will be getting the JDM-spec version, with the 'new' 136ps engine and not the lame one used in the 'new' USDM CR-Z. Following this, the rest of ASEAN will of course be getting this car as well. In the media gathering, I overheard that there will be a private Q&A session with the CR-Z LPL the day before the launch but reserved for selected people only so expect news of the 'new' CRZ to start coming out on the 20th. We will be asking our questions during the press conference in the launch day itself.

Seems it is planning to beat all its competitors. It is interesting to read the public thoughts on Honda Honda

The CR-Z MMC was launched yesterday morning and I was there to cover it. Pricing for Malaysia was fantastic, with Honda keeping the increase in price to a bare minimum. Also a cause for celebration is the fact that we are getting the JDM version here with minor specification changes. I am preparing some interesting coverage for this which should come out very soon so do stay posted via here and our TOVA main site.

Interesting to see the coverage on particularly the question of a performance version. No firm plans, but there was talk of turbos being a good fit in a hybrid. Did you hear anything like that ?

In the main launch event press conference, I was the person who asked for clarification on all the rumours and talks about a 'hot' version. Some interim matters have delayed my publishing the Honda response to this question but it should be up tomorrow and you can hear the answer for yourself (don't get too excited yet though)

The Honda Accord is one of the best-selling automobiles of all time. There’s no secret to the Accord’s successful run. Honda simply refuses to compromise when it comes to overall automotive quality. Although the Accord has plenty of attractive interior and exterior features, its reputation rests on simple, rock-solid mechanical reliability. The 2012 Honda Accord continues this tradition while offering a number of praiseworthy improvements.
