The Honda WR-V is the brand’s compact-SUV offering in the Indian market. The WR-V has been on sale in India for quite a while and recently received a facelift, which gave the SUV a more updated and refreshed look, compared to the older model.
Starting with the design, the Honda WR-V comes with a slightly refreshed styling. The front features a large grille, with the brand’s signature chrome bar with the ‘H’ at its centre. The grille is flanked by projector headlamps on either side integrated with the LED DRLs. The front bumper features the LED fog lamps in separate housings on either end.
The side profile of the Honda WR-V is characterised by 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, black cladding around the wheel arches, roof rails again finished in black and large windows as well. The WR-V comes with body-coloured ORVMs which are electrically adjustable and foldable as well. Moving to the rear, the Honda WR-V features LED tail lights with a smoked treatment, along with a slightly tweaked rear bumper as well.
The Honda WR-V comes powered by two BS6 engine options. This includes a 1.2-litre petrol churning out 65bhp and 110Nm of peak torque, paired with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The diesel unit comes in the form of a 1.5-litre engine. It produces slightly better power figures of 71bhp and 200Nm of peak torque, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
Honda claims that the 1.2-litre petrol engine returns a mileage of 16.5km/l, while the 1.5-litre diesel fares much better at 23.7km/l. All figures are ARAI-certified and might vary in the real-world, depending on various external factors.
The diesel engine with its fuel efficiency figures should be able to offer an impressive range of around 900km from its 40-litre fuel tank capacity.
The Honda WR-V comes packed with a host of features and equipment across all its variants on offer. These include LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED tail lights, electrically-adjustable & foldable ORVMs, electric sunroof, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, keyless entry, seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, steering-mounted controls, push-button start/stop and many more.
In terms of safety features, the new Honda WR-V comes with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, rear view parking camera, seatbelt warning, high-speed alert, seat-belt pre-tensioners, ISOFIX child seat anchors and many others.
The Honda WR-V comes equipped with a host of features and equipment. The car looks stylish, both inside and out. However, where the compact-SUV does lose out on is the powertrain options. With most of its competitors moving on to turbo-petrol engine options with over 100bhp, the WR-V does feel outdated and sluggish with its engines producing much lower power and torque figures.
The Honda WR-V is positioned in the compact-SUV segment, rivalling the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue and Ford EcoSport; among others.
The Honda WR-V is offered in two variants: SV & VX.
The Honda WR-V comes in a choice of six colour options: Premium Amber Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Golden Brown Metallic, Platinum White Pearl & Radiant Red Metallic.
The Hyundai Venue is definitely a much better compact-SUV offering in the Indian market.
