In its monthly sales report for April 2017, Honda Cars India has announced that it has received 12,000 bookings for the Honda WR-V since its launch in mid-March 2017.
The Honda WR-V marks Honda’s entry into the booming sub-4 metre crossover segment in India. Based on the Honda Jazz, the Honda WR-V competes with the Ford EcoSport and Maruti Vitara Brezza. It’s available in two mechanical configurations.
The Honda WR-V petrol is powered by the 1.5-litre i-VTEC four-cylinder engine that develops 90 PS and 110 Nm of torque and gets a 5-speed manual transmission as standard. The Honda WR-V diesel has the 1.5-litre i-DTEC four-cylinder diesel engine under the hood. This unit produces 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque and sends power to the wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. There’s no option for a CVT in the WR-V. A 1.5-litre petrol engine option is on the cards.
The Honda WR-V is available in two trim levels: S and VX. Noteworthy features of the sub-compact crossover are, LED daytime running lights, silver skid plates, 16-inch gunmetal-finish alloy wheels, electric sunroof, cruise control, push start/stop button, keyless entry, automatic climate control with touch control panel and 7.0-inch DIGIPAD capacitive touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, MirrorLink and voice recognition.
Dual-front airbags and ABS with EBD are standard, and the VX grade has even a multi-view rear camera.
