The Honda WR-V will launch in India on March 16, reportedly.

This is the first time the India-spec WR-V has been photographed up close, giving a good look at the exterior, interior and features in store. The model spied is based on the top-end VX grade, which features fog lamps, LED DRLs, roof rails, ORVM-mounted blinkers, chrome door handles, 16-inch dual tone alloy wheels, silver bumper garnish on both ends, and a rear wiper.

Inside, the design is identical to the Honda Jazz but comes with black fabric upholstery and silver accents on the dashboard as well as the door cards. The VX grade gets Honda's new 7-inch DIGIPAD infotainment system, which debuted in the 2017 Honda City (facelift). However, it does not get start/stop button or cruise control.
