Honda cars India launched the BS6 version of their cross hatchback WR-V in the market recently. It is quite a popular model and competes with cars like Hyundai i20 Active, Ford Freestyle in the segment. Honda has made number of revisions to the BS6 version in comparison to the BS4 version of WR-V. Price for facelifted Honda WR-V now starts at Rs 8.49 lakh, ex-showroom and goes up to Rs 10.99 lakh, ex-showroom. Here we have a new TVC that shows the new WR-V inside out.
The video has been uploaded by Deepanshu Malik on his youtube channel. The video simply shows the cosmetic changes that are done to the WR-V when it became BS6 compliant. The main changes or revisions on the front start from the grille. It has grown in size and looks a bit more matured or serious. The signature chrome Honda nose adds bit of a character and they connect with the headlamps that have projector type lamps along with integrated LED DRLs and position lamps along with turn indicators integrated in it.
Coming down to the bumper, it has an LED fog lamp along with a black cladding and faux skid plate on the lower part of the bumper. Coming to the side profile, the 16 inch dual tone alloy wheels, roof rails and the cladding gives it a rugged feeling. It has more ground clearance than that of a regular hatchback and this allows it go easily over broken patches.
Rear portion of the WR-V gets split LED tail light along with a slightly revised bumper. Apart from that everything else remains the same in WR-V. On the inside, the basic layout of the cabin remains the same with touchscreen infotainment screen, multi-function steering wheel and so on. The only revision here is the addition of chrome garnishes at places to give it a premium or upmarket feel. It also comes with an electric sunroof.
The WR-V is available in both petrol and diesel engine options The petrol version is available with a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated unit that generates 90 PS of peak power and 110 Nm of peak torque. The diesel version is powered by a 1.5 litre unit generating 100 PS of peak power and 200 Nm of peak torque. Both versions are available with a manual gearbox only. The addition of an automatic gearbox could give WR-V sales a big boost.
