Honda WR-V launched in India at Rs 7.75 lakh

16 Mar 2017 / 4

Honda Cars today entered the sub-four meter crossover segment in India with the launch of the WR-V. Priced from Rs 7.75 lakh, ex-Delhi, the Honda WR-V shares its underpinnings with the Jazz. The Japanese car manufacturer opened bookings for the WR-V last month and the deliveries are slated to start from this week. India is the first market in the world to get the WR-V and subsequent launches of this car in other ASEAN markets are expect to follow soon.

Honda India has played a large role in the development of the WR-V. Unlike most other crossover themed hatchbacks, the WR-V is significantly distinctive in design than the Jazz. It borrows styling cues from other crossovers from Honda’s portfolio like the BR-V and upcoming new CR-V. The cabin is largely similar to the Jazz and the larger wheelbase of the WR-V provides slightly better cabin space. Motivation for this pint-sized crossover comes from the same engine options as the Jazz – a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel. Both can be hand only with manual transmissions as of now – 5-speed and 6-speed respectively.

It packs satellite navigation, an Android OS, internet capability, 1.5GB of media storage space and HDMI video input. You also get the reversing camera with three angles of view. The car also packs two USB ports and 12V sockets. The equipment is spread across two trim levels and the prices for the same are all follows:

Honda WR-V S petrol – Rs 7.75 lakh

Honda WR-V VX petrol – Rs 8.99 lakh

Honda WR-V S diesel – Rs 8.79 lakh
