Honda Brazil has issued another teaser for its WR-V compact crossover ahead of the vehicle’s debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo Motor show scheduled to begin later this month. It will be the fourth addition to the Jazz platform and is expected to come to India in late 2017.
The officials rendering reveal that the car will use the standard formula of such vehicles which include a high ground clearance, taller wheels and a beefy body kit to make the vehicle seems larger than life. It is also expected to get a modified grille and possibly different tail lamps.
The cabin will be standard Honda Jazz fare but expect some upgrades in terms of features and possibly on the safety front too. The Brazilian model will be offered with the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre petrol while we in the Indian market will also get it with the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine.
Here in India it will take on the Hyundai i20 Active, Toyota Etios Cross, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra NuvoSport as well as the Volkswagen Cross Polo. The arrival of this model comes at a time when there has been a growing demand for crossovers and compact SUVs across the market.
