Honda Atlas Cars, the distributor of Honda products in Pakistan, is reported to have ordered Completely Built Units (CBU) of the Honda HR-V from Thailand, for an early-2016 launch, as per a report on PakWheels. The SUV is expected to be priced from PKR 3.5 million (INR 22.02 lakhs). This arrangement of importing CBUs from Thailand follows the precedent set by the Honda Accord.

The motor is capable of producing 141 PS (139 bhp) at 6,500 rpm and 172 Nm at 4,300 rpm, mated to a CVT as standard that sends power to front wheels.
