The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced the launch of the Freed facelift in Malaysia, where the MPV is available from RM99, 800.
After arriving initially in Malaysia back in April 2010, the Honda Freed is now available to its future customers across the country in the facelifted version. According to the car manufacturer, the “new” Honda Freed facelift is getting a new front grille, a redesigned front bumper, a thick chrome strip across the logo, a chrome garnish above the number plate in the rear and a fresh design for the wheels. The higher E spec is getting leather seats, fold-down armrests, height adjustment for the driver’s seat, new color scheme for the instrument panel and much more.
Honda says that the Freed facelift has no mechanical changes so the same 1.5 liter SOHC i-VTEC engine is still available for the model, with its 118 PS and 148 Nm of torque, mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. A five-year warranty with unlimited mileage is available for the Honda Freed facelift and the maintenance will be performance at set intervals. The base version of the Honda Freed facelift, the S, starts at RM99,800, while the Grade E is available from RM113,500.
