The Honda WR-V is a compact SUV that makes a bold impression with its flashy, yet, functional design. It is a car that can connect with the modern generation and carries a good mixture of practicality and fun.
The Honda WR-V flaunts a horizontally placed swanky chrome grille up front which connects with LED DRLs, lending the car with a tough and upright appeal. The silver roof rails add to the outdoor-ready appeal of this car. At the back, the rear lights are placed to appear like the letter 'C', and the silver coloured skid plates at both ends provide a rugged sporty look. The top variant is equipped with an electric sunroof too which adds a very popular feature to the WR-V's spec sheet. Overall, this Honda has become pretty popular for combining the right amount of practicality with a good amount of features and efficient engines.
The interiors are black and have a pinch of silver in it. The infotainment system and climate control have full touch screen panels. The infotainment system, in particular, is a 17.7 cm Digipad which is MirrorLink compatible and supports voice recognition along with an in-built navigation system.
Features like Start-Stop ignition along with Honda's smart key system will please those who like modern convenience. The steering wheel is loaded with multimedia features like audio, voice and handsfree command buttons along with cruise control. It has an advanced digital multi-information combi-meter which provides the driver with all trip-related information. Boot space stands at 363 litres and can be expanded by folding the rear seat backrest down. Other storage spaces in the cabin include a glovebox, a cooled glass holder near the driver-side AC vent along with ample space to hold other things in the door pads. There's also storage space under the front armrest, which also has sockets for USB and power inside.
Dual Airbags and ABS with EBD are standard with Honda’s rigid ACE body structure. A multiview rear parking camera, intelligent pedals with a brake override system and engine immobilizer also come as standard. The seats have impact mitigating headrests to prevent whiplash.
The Honda WR-V offers a choice of one petrol and one diesel engine. The 1.2 litre i-vtec petrol engine produces 90 hp and 110 Nm of torque and is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. It is rated for a mileage of 17.5 km/l. The engine is rev happy and one of the most refined units in its class.
On the other hand, the 1.5-litre i-dtec diesel engine produces 100 hp and 200 NM of torque and is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. It is rated for best-in-class mileage of 25.5 km/l. The diesel motor scores high on driveability and should be the pick if you will be driving regularly on the highways. It is an able cruiser too and feels decently punchy and long-legged, courtesy of the 6th ratio in the gearbox.
Honda WR-V price starts from INR 7.92 Lakh to INR 10.48 Lakh.
Winsome Roundabout Vehicle. If we tell you that’s the name of Honda’s new car for India, you’d say that’s not a name, it’s a sentence. But if we tell you that they’ve cut it short to call it the Honda WR-V, and it has been conceived and designed to help you take on our everyday road conditions which mostly resemble stages from the WRC, your ear wax will shift. Although whether you wish to hear or listen, we’ll leave that for you to decide.
