The Mugen badge is a haloed one in the Honda realm… even if it’s just a cosmetic exercise for a family SUV. Since its first appearance at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2018, the CR-V Mugen was sure to wet the pants of many a family man that had to let go of their classic VTEC Civic or Integra for something a bit more practical for the family.

Well Honda Malaysia has given them the chance to have a little taste of Mugen in their lives, albeit a cosmetic one. Now officially badged as the CR-V Mugen Limited Edition, 300 units of the SUV based on the 1.5L Turbocharged 2WD trim will be produced.

Setting it apart from regular CR-Vs at the shopping mall or school waiting area will be a front under spoiler, front grille garnish, side garnish, rear under spoiler, rear upper wing and of course a distinct Mugen emblem.

Pictured here in the signature Passion Red Pearl, you can also have your CR-V Mugen in White Orchid Pearl.

The decision to roll out the CR-V Mugen was based on the success of the prior Jazz Mugen and BR-V Special Edition. Pricing for the CR-V Mugen Limited Edition is RM152,900 for Passion Red Pearl colour and RM153,300 for White Orchid Pearl. We recommend the red, it’s also a pinch more affordable.

Since local assembly of the CR-V begun here in 2003, Honda Malaysia has sold over 95,000 units. The current fifth generation of the CR-V was also the first Honda to feature Sensing active safety and accounts for close to 27,000 units as of June 2019. Those numbers help it retain its spot as the leader in the non-national SUV segment.

Adding a little more excitement to the release of the CR-V Mugen Limited Edition, Honda Malaysia will also be giving customers that test-drive any CR-V the opportunity to win exclusive gifts worth up to RM100,000
