Honda launches its new crossover WR-V in India

NEW DELHI: India on Thursday became the first global market to get the production version of the all-new WR-V from Honda. The crossover was launched at a starting price of Rs 7.75 lakh (ex showroom, Delhi).
The sub-four meter WR-V is based on the Jazz platform but is taller and has a better ground clearance to tackle Indian roads. On the outside, the car features a buff front which seeks to give it a character of its own. Coupled with LED DRLs, the WR-V's face has a familiar Honda appearance while still giving glimpses of uniqueness. Roof rails are a good addition while all-new tailgate and bumper at the rear appear distinct.
 
On the inside, the WR-V gets almost as many features as was seen in the Honda City 2017. While the top-end gets a sunroof, there is also a seven-inch infotainment screen - seen in the new Honda City+ , an HDMI slot, two USB ports and MirrorLink connectivity.
 
Dual airbags and ABS with EBD are standard while the higher variants will also get cruise control and push button start.
As for the engine options, the WR-V is offered in 1.2-litre petrol - same as Jazz, which produces 89 bhp of power and has a five-speed manual transmission.
 
A six-speed manual 1.5-litre diesel engine - producing 99 bhp of power - is also on offer and it claims to have a mileage of 25.5 kilometeres to every litre. There are no plans of an automatic option yet.
 
Variant Price (Ex-showroom Delhi)
Petrol S MT Rs 7,75,000
Petrol VX MT Rs 8,99,000
Diesel S MT Rs 8,79,000
Diesel VX MT Rs 9,99,900
 
Speaking at the launch event, Yoichiro Ueno, president and CEO of Honda Cars India, said that the company is primarily targeting the urban Indian youth under 35 with the WR-V. "The fast-evolving Indian market has shown strong demand for compact vehicles that are stylish, comfortable and have premium features. With the launch of WR-V, we would like to provide joy for recreational usage and comfort for daily use."
The WR-V comes in six exterior colours and two interior tones. Honda is also offering a three-year unlimited kilometres warranty which can be extended to five years.
