Honda WR-V Petrol VX Review

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.

  • Good But Can Be Better

    There is nothing for the rear passengers and literally nothing and not even a charging socket. Comfort, cabin space is great, and rest all are good.

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?
