Honda seems to have got the attention of buyers as it has already received over 1,000 bookings for the WR-V crossover.
The impressive response comes within three weeks of Honda started bookings for the WR-V. The WR-V was launched on March 16, 2017. Honda Car India has developed the WR-V based on the Jazz and the City's platform.
However, the Honda WR-V is taller, wider, longer and spacious compared to the Jazz and the City. The WR-V was designed and built by the Honda's R&D team in India along with inputs from the global R&D team as well.
India is the first country globally to manufacture and sell the WR-V, though it was unveiled in Brazil first.
On the design of the Honda WR-V, the upswept headlamps with the LED daytime running lights (DRLs) along with thicker chrome strip on the grille make it look different from the Jazz.
There is also the silver faux skid plates and the black plastic cladding on the wheel arches, and the bottom of the body adds to its SUV styling.
The WR-V crossover receives a significant number of features such as standard ABS and airbags on all variants. In a segment first, the top VX variant gets a sunroof and the new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that Honda calls DIGIPAD.
The Honda WR-V gets a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel unit, with the diesel engine returning an impressive 25.5km/l. Honda WR-V will compete with Maruti Suzuki Brezza and Ford EcoSport and is the most fuel-efficient crossover in India.
