Honda released the long-awaited WR-V facelifted in India on Thursday at Rs 8.49 lakh. This is the first major update for the WR-V since its release in March 2017. It was released in two versions: SV and VX. While the SV gasoline variant starts at Rs 8.49 lakh, VX gasoline is priced at Rs 9.70 lakh. The diesel-powered SV variant costs Rs 9.80 lakh and the high-spec VX diesel is priced at Rs 10.99 lakh.

With the latest mid-cycle makeover, the WR-V has become a slightly more sporty-looking offering. It has been given a highly updated front fascia with a new, larger grille with horizontal slats that sit below Honda’s signature chrome slat. The brand logo has been placed right in the center of the main ribbon. The new grille has been flanked by a pair of fitted headlights with LED projector units and LED daytime running lamps.

The new WR-V has also received remastered bumpers with a new fog lamp housing, underbody coating, and a new faux silver skid plate.

The 2020 WR-V is powered by a 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engine that generates 73 kW (100 PS) of power at 3,600 rpm and 200 Nm at 1,750 rpm. It has a return capacity of 23.7 km / l.

The car also has a 1.2-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine that delivers 66 kW (90 PS) of power at 6,000 rpm and 110 Nm at 4,800 rpm. This engine has a total fuel efficiency of 16.5 km / l. It goes without saying that both engines are BS 6 compliant.

While the 1.5-liter i-DTEC will be available with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the 1.2-liter i-VTEC will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. There will be no automatic transmission on offer in the new WR-V.

It will be available in a selection of six color options: Premium Amber Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Goldern Brown Metallic, Platinum White Pearl, and Radiant Red Metallic.

As for the features, there are not many changes in the new WR-V. The entry level trim has received two front airbags, a rear defogger, a rear parking camera, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED DRLs, projector headlights, driver seat height adjustment, adjustable and folding electric ORVMs , automatic climate control, power windows, the infotainment interface with 7.0-inch Digipad 2.0 touch screen, compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and navigation based on SD card.

The higher-specification WR-V VX also has a rear windshield wiper, LED headlights, taillights and fog lights, a front center armrest, cruise control, keyless entry and exit, a leather-wrapped steering, and an electric sunroof.

Following the WR-V, the company will also launch the next-generation City later this month.
