At the front, the solid wing chrome grille gives it a bold look. It has new smoked headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) and position lamps. The front fog lamps have been made sharp with bezel around it. The front bumper skid plate really adds a bold look to the car.
Coming to sides, b-pillar and c-pillar have been blacked out. The 16-inch gunmetal finish alloy wheels are big enough to give it a sporty look. Outside Rear View Mirrors (ORVMs) are electrically adjustable with power folding. At the rear, silver bumper skid plate gives it a look of a crossover. It has spilt type rear combi lamp and a stop lamp mounted at the rear spoiler.
Honda WR-V gets asymmetrical black dashboard with a touch-pad climate control unit, and the neat, large part-digital instrument cluster. The WR-V also gets features like a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a segment-first sunroof. Honda's man maximum, machine minimum philosophy ensures that there is ample space inside the car Boot. However, Honda is neither offering the Magic Seats like in the Jazz, nor 60:40 split seats.
Under the hood, the WR-V gets SOHC 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol that produces 90PS at 6,000rpm and 110Nm at 4,800rpm as well as a DOHC 1.5-litre I-DTEC turbo-diesel that puts out 100PS at 3,600rpm and 200Nm at 1,750rpm. The diesel gets a 6-speed manual and the petrol gets a 5-speed manual - however, there is no CVT option like in the Jazz.
The precise gearbox and the light clutch only make the experience that much nicer in slow-moving traffic. Honda is claiming that the petrol WR-V will return an overall average of 17.5kmpl which is quite respectable.
