Honda cars have started rolling out new models in the market post lockdown and they recently started taking bookings for the all-new fifth generation City sedan, Jazz premium hatchback and WR-V cross hatchback. The WR-V has been a popular model among customers and was launched in the market back in 2017. Honda has now made some visual changes to the cross hatchback and will be launching it in the market on 2 July 2020. The Honda WR-V competes with cars like Ford Freestyle and Hyundai i20 Active in the compact crossover segment. Here we have a video that reveals the launch date of the facelifted Honda WR-V BS6.
The video is a simple one and shows the upcoming WR-V and the launch date. Ever since its launch in 2017, WR-V has not received any major update. It has remained same and has also been doing good in terms of numbers. Even before its official launch, the car has reached some of the dealerships and we had reported about it a few weeks ago.
Talking about the changes there are couple of them. The soon to be launched Honda WR-V BS6 has an all-new front fascia. The front grille on the BS6 WR-V has been redesigned and looks much more premium. The redesigned grille also gives it a dominating look on the road. The headlights are projector type lamps and looks much more fresh than the outgoing version.
The diesel version of the WR-V will be getting a new design for the alloy wheels whereas the petrol versions will continue to get the same old design. From the rear, it will retain the same design as the BS4 version. Apart from these changes on the outside, the interiors of the BS6 WR-V is likely to remain the same.
It will have redesigned upholstery, touchscreen infotainment screen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, cruise control, sunroof, rear parking sensors, camera and so on. It will also offer other safety features such as dual airbags, ABS and EBD. WR-V will be available with a BS6 compliant petrol and diesel engine. The 1.2 litre petrol engine generates a maximum output of 90 Ps and the 1.5 litre diesel engine generates 100 Ps. Just like the older version Honda will not be offering an automatic transmission with the updated WR-V. With all these updates, WR-V is expected to be priced slightly higher than the older version.
