Tired of black? Then check this out.

If you’ve ever seen the Honda HR-V in the flesh, then you’ll know that it comes with an interior that’s mostly black. As far as stylishness goes, black goes with any kind of design, and on the HR-V, the dark themed interior gives it this quiet, dignified but very modern look.

However, despite looking good in black, you’re definitely imagining how the HR-V’s interior will look if it came in other colors. Say, dark brown?

There are, however, no changes for the exterior for the Malaysian-spec HR-V

Well we’ve got great news for those who are wanting to get an HR-V but have issues with entirely black interiors, because Honda just introduced a dark brown leather option for the Honda HR-V RS for our neighbors in Malaysia.

Honda HR-V RS: The dark brown leather looks great

With this update, the Malaysian-spec Honda HR-V RS’s seats, the door paneling, and the center console, as well as the dashboard panel is covered in dark brown leather.

With this new option, the HR-V RS’s interior provides a more vibrant and earthy tone. The best part about this is that even if you opted for the new interior color, the price for the HR-V will still remain the same at RM 124,000, or Php 1,448,670. Here in the Philippines, the HR-V RS is priced at Php1,508,000.

The exterior for the Honda HR-V will still have the same color choices. For the Philippines, however, do note that we’ve actually got a different set of paint choices which include Taffeta White, Modern Steel Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic, Passion Red Pearl, and the very striking Phoenix Orange Pearl.

Honda HR-V RS: It’s possible that we’ll also get this new interior

While Honda Philippines is yet to say anything about our version of the HR-V, we’re thinking that there’s a great chance that we’ll be getting this new interior color.

Just like the Malaysian market though, we’re guessing that it’ll also be limited to the Philippine-spec HR-V RS. With regards to whether this new option will cost more or not, we’ll just have to wait for Honda Philippines for more details.
