Highlights

February 15, 2017: We got the info about the upcoming WR-V's infotainment system from people in the know that it will feature the 2017 City's new 7.0-inch infotainment system (Digipad). Recently, Honda detailed the WR-V to the Brazilian media. Apart from the expected bits, we have some extra info about the WR-V such as it offers 200mm of ground clearance and a slightly longer wheelbase compared to the Jazz, and others. A few days ago, the India-spec Honda WR-V has been spotted for the first time in the country. It looks identical to the one, which made its global debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil. It is likely to go on sale in coming months here (probably March 2017). Honda will pitch the WR-V against the likes of the Ford EcoSport and the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, amongst others (will be similarly priced as well). The WR-V shares its design cues with the Jazz, especially the side profile. But it features a fresh new face and a subtly redesigned rear profile. The leaked interior shot from overseas indicated that the interiors will be identical to the Jazz as well. Mechanically, in India, the WR-V is likely to borrow its powertrains – both diesel and petrol – from the Jazz.

Honda WR-V review

The WR-V is Honda’s maiden attempt in the sub-4m SUV segment. The vehicle made its world debut in November 2016 at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil. And at the time of reveal, the Japanese automaker highlighted that the Jazz-based compact SUV will join Honda’s global fleet of SUVs – the CR-V and the HR-V.

Honda WR-V

The WR-V is expected to join Honda’s fleet in India in coming months (post the launch of the facelifted City). If we go by Honda’s way, the WR-V will take on the likes of the Ford EcoSport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, and others. Since it is expected to share most of its features with the Jazz, let’s see how it will fare in the segment.   

Honda WR-V

Things We Like in WR-V

  • Offers enough cabin space to put its rivals and plenty of sedans to shame, like the Jazz.
  • Class-leading over-350 litres of boot space.
  • Boot space combined with Honda’s flexible Magic Seats outdoes almost all in terms of space.
  • Likely to borrow infotainment unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity from the 2017 City.
  • The Jazz borrowed fuel efficient powertrains – 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel.
  • Segment-first CVT automatic with paddle shifters.

Things We Don't Like in WR-V

  • Doesn’t look as intimidating as the EcoSport or the Vitara Brezza.
  • Sharing body panels with Jazz might be a turnoff for many.
  • The 1.5-litre diesel engine is relatively noisier compared to that of Ford, Fiat, and others.

Stand Out Features

  • Multiple loading options with Magic Seats.

CarDekho Verdict

Though it is not a ground-up design like the Ford EcoSport or the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Honda has tried to make it stand out compared to the Jazz with its upright stance and all-around body cladding. Also, sharing the chassis with the Jazz has liberated exceptional cabin and boot space. 

"The Magic Seats will certainly become more important in the WR-V than they are in the Jazz, considering the recreational and crossover image of the latter. "
