The facelifted and BS6 compliant WR-V is more expensive than before and gets a few new features

The Honda WR-V has been given a mild facelift along with BS6 compliant engines. It now comes in just two variants: SV and VX. Both variants are available with the choice of a petrol or diesel engine, but only with a manual transmission. Here’s what the powertrains have to offer:

Engine

1.2-litre petrol

1.5-litre diesel

Power

90PS

100PS

Torque

110Nm

200Nm

Transmission

5-speed MT

6-speed MT

ARAI Claimed Fuel Efficiency

16.5kmpl

23.7kmpl

The two variants of the WR-V are:

SV - Well loaded for a base variant.

VX - Offers all the features you’d expect from a car in the segment.

Verdict

In the top-spec VX variant, the WR-V is now pricier by Rs 45,000 for the petrol option while the diesel option now costs an extra Rs 65,000 over the pre-facelift BS4 model. The feature updates for the premium are limited to the new LED lighting allround and the BS6 update. Honda already used to offer it with auto AC, climate control and a sunroof.

In this VX variant, the WR-V crossover gets most of the features it’d need to compete with rivals from both the sub-4m SUV and premium hatchback segments. The Rs 1.2 lakh premium over the SV variant still feels a bit steep though, and we’d have liked Honda to offer connected car technology at this price point for the facelifted WR-V.
