The crossovers are taking over the world and the latest one being readied is the Honda WR-V. It is a sub-four metre car based on the Honda Jazz. Honda has built the WR-V especially for the developing markets like India and Brazil.
In spite of being based on the Jazz, the WR-V looks seem to be inspired more by the Honda BR-V. It gets a similar decked up bonnet with rectangular swept back headlamps flanking the moustache-like thick chrome slat. The bumper gets a lot of contours, cuts and creases along with a bash-plate to complete a busy SUV look. The profile, especially after the A-pillar, reveals the Jazz roots up to the tail. It gets a thin peripheral cladding and roof rails to complete the SUV look.
On the inside, the WR-V is unmistakably like the Jazz with a very similar layout of the dashboard, dials, centre console and the steering wheel. While the equipment is also the same as the Jazz, the WR-V gets an added electrically operated sunroof for the top-spec car bringing it closer to the Honda City on the features list. However, there’s no Magic Seats on offer.
Under the hood, you have the same engine options as the Jazz – the 1.2-litre i-Vtec petrol engine and the 1.5-litre i-Dtec diesel engine. The 91bhp petrol is being offered with a five-speed manual gearbox while the 100bhp diesel is available with the six-speed manual.
The WR-V competes with Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Ford EcoSport rather than the Hyundai i20 Active or the Toyota Etios Cross or the Fiat Avventura.
