I was deciding between a Ford Ecosport and a Honda WR-V. I test drove both the cars, petrol variants. The ecosport came off as lackluster. This was primarily because there was no real feel of engine power in the 1 litre ecoboost engine. Apart from that, the car felt chunky and cumbersome when it came to steering. However, when I test drove the WR-V, boy oh boy! was it a pleasant surprise. The driveability of the car was definitely better than any of the competition. I drove it down JVLR and the engine purred like a kitten. The transmission can get slightly sticky at times, but the enhanced steering and braking more than make up for it. Plus the gearstick is a little small, so it takes slight getting used to.

The car handled all the bumps quite well, and led to a smooth drive. My wife and cousin in the backseat also complimented the leg room. Not to mention the fact that the sunroof is a pretty cool add on to have. The interiors are well placed, and give the car a distinguished (albeit plastic) look.

I have been driving the car around for a month now and it takes on the worst of mumbai's traffic with little or no hiccups. It handles slopes fine too, if you gear down. Spacious and powerful, its a great car to have and a great price.

The navigation system is a boon, but it takes a while for the GPS signal to catch on sometimes. Make sure you check the digipad entertainment system and the navigation system before purchasing.

But overall, definitely 4.5 on 5.

    Hello Kunaey, I am also planning for the WR-V, I just wanted to know how is the mileage as you have already provided the feedback regarding other things. waiting for your reply.

    Kunaey |16 Aug,2017 11:43:51 AM

    Mileage for the petrol variant is about 10-11kmpl, based on last 6 months of driving

    Kunaey |11 Sep,2017 01:12:34 PM

    Also, one thing to note. The speedometer has a green or blue led lighting, indicating the optimum mileage. I noticed this recently, and since then the mileage has gone up! now gives me 11-12kmpl if you maintain the drive in 'green'

    excellent car, value for money, spacious, are the plus points. 1.2 ltr engine is giving troubles when we drive in hills. its a serious concern.

    nandan |03 Sep,2017 09:26:29 PM

    whether is it going smooth on normal ghats like Lonavala ? on which hilly area you faced troubles ?

    Kunaey |11 Sep,2017 01:11:36 PM

    Not sure Nandan or Benny. Yet to drive it on hilly roads.

    I dont believe part of your review -- which makes me doubt if you really own a wrv. Petrol versions does not come with a sunroof. Or did they give exclusively one to you?

    Harikrishnan |16 Aug,2017 07:41:11 AM

    Ok my bad...apologies for the above post top-end does come with a sunroof :)
