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.

To launch in India tomorrow.

Honda Brazil has launched the Fit-based (Jazz-based) Honda WR-V crossover in the South American market. Available in two variants: EX and EXL, the Brazilian-spec Honda WR-V is priced at BRL 79,400 (INR 16.47 Lakhs) and BRL 83,400 (INR 17.3 Lakhs), respectively.

The Brazilian-spec Honda WR-V EX and EXL grades are priced at BRL 79,400 (INR 16.47 Lakhs) and BRL 83,400 (INR 17.3 Lakhs), respectively.

Launched as the successor of the Honda Fit Twist, the Honda WR-V features more distinctive styling and a new name to differentiate it from the Honda Jazz (Fit). The front-end features robust-looking body cladding, larger rims, bolder grille garnished with chrome and roof rails. It offers a good ground clearance of 190 mm.

Inside, the cabin looks mostly identical to the Honda Fit. The WR-V exclusively gets dual tone fabric upholstery with brown contrast stitching and brown fabric door cards. Unlike the WR-V to-be-sold in India, the Brazil-spec model gets Magic Seats. However, it does not get the touch-sensitive automatic climate control, push button start or sunroof. Other features include a 7-inch touchscreen system, rear view camera, tilt and telescopic steering adjustment, curtain airbags, and LED DRLs.
