With the dispatch of the City facelift behind it, Honda is presently preparing for the dispatch of it's second new item for the year, the WR-V. The India-spec display has as of now been spied undisguised in the nation with models already on their approach to dealerships.
The Honda WR-V is a hybrid vehicle in light of the Jazz hatchback. In that capacity, it imparts a few things to the Jazz, including the drivetrain, platform, certain body boards and in addition inside bits.
It might be based on the Jazz, but it will be difficult to point that out by just looking at it. The fascia is unlike the Jazz's, with different headlights and a new, aggressively styled, muscular bumper. In profile, it shares fenders and the doors with the Jazz, but features body cladding for a beefier look. Round the back too, the WR-V is heavily differentiated from the Jazz by a different tailgate and bumper.
The WR-V will get the same engine and gearbox options as the Jazz. These include a 90hp 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol mated to a five-speed manual or CVT gearbox and a 100hp 1.5-litre Earth Dreams i-DTEC diesel mated to a six-speed manual.
The car shares much of its interior with the regular Jazz but with a new touchscreen infotainment system taking centre place on the dashboard and revised seat upholstery. The car will also get more equipment such as LED daytime running lamps and diamond cut alloy wheels. Interestingly, the car may also get a sunroof.
Revealed early November 2016 at the Sao Paolo engine appear, the WR-V is required to dispatch in India on March 16, 2017. It will be situated somewhat over the Jazz, and will rival any semblance of the Hyundai i20 Active and the Fiat Avventura, and additionally conservative SUVs like the Maruti Vitara Brezza and the Ford EcoSport.
