Honda WR-V’s (Honda Jazz cross) grille design allegedly leaked
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Expected in India in 2017.
GaadiWaadi has acquired an alleged patent sketch of the Honda WR-V’s grille, revealing the final design. Codenamed ‘Honda 2FM’, the WR-V (Honda Jazz Cross) is expected to arrive in 2017 in India.
The grille looks largely identical to that of the Honda HR-V, although the lower portion has a honeycomb grille; instead of multiple slats in the HR-V. The rendering from Quatro Rodas (below) serves as an idea of how the grille integrates into the front of the Honda WR-V. The wheelbase is reported to measure 2.6 meters, slightly longer than the hatchback.
The WR-V will launch in Brazil first, and will be powered by the Honda Jazz’s i-VTEC FlexOne flex-fuel unit that produces 115 hp (petrol)/116 hp (ethanol) and 149 Nm (petrol)/150 Nm (ethanol) of torque. It’s unclear if the petrol variant of the India-spec WR-V will come with a 1.2L i-VTEC or the bigger 1.5L i-VTEC petrol engine. The diesel variant will feature the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The Honda WR-V will make its world debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo Motor Show in November, before arriving in the Indian market in 2017.
