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.

Production has commenced ahead of its expected launch in March.

A Team-BHP reader has managed to snap pics of the Honda WR-V’s production flag-off ceremony at Honda Cars India’s plant in Tapukara, Rajasthan. Production has commenced well ahead of its expected launch in March.

The WR-V has been tipped for launch in India ever since it was first spied testing in Brazil. It has already been unveiled to the Brazilian public at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto Show, and go on sale in the coming days in the South American nation.

Unlike other hatchback-based crossovers in India, the ‘Winsome Runabout-Vehicle’ has a slightly more distinct styling to distance itself from the model it is based on – the Honda Jazz. It features the usual crossover elements like higher ground clearance, tough body cladding, larger rims, bolder grille garnished with chrome and roof rails.

The Honda WR-V’s engine lineup will be sourced from the Honda Jazz, which includes a 1.2L i-VTEC petrol engine and a 1.5L i-DTEC turbo diesel engine. The petrol variant will come equipped with a 5-speed manual or CVT, while the diesel WR-V only gets a 6-speed manual gearbox.
