Honda cars India recently launched the updated BS6 version of their premium cross hatchback WR-V in the market. WR-V is quite a popular car in the segment and competes with the likes of Hyundai i20 Active, Ford Freestyle in the segment. Prices for BS6 version of the updated WR-V starts at Rs 8.49 lakh ex-showroom and goes up to Rs 10.99 lakh ex-showroom. In comparison to the older BS4 version, BS6 WR-V seen several revisions that make it more relevant in the market. Here we have a demo film that shows how the car looks from both outside and inside.
The video has been uploaded by Honda Cars India on their official youtube channel. The video takes us through all the revised elements on the WR-V. Starting with the exterior, the front grille has now grown in size. It gets a gloss black treatment with signature chrome Honda nose at the front. The headlamps have also been revised slightly they still get projector type headlamps with LED DRLs integrated inside the cluster along with position lamps.
The bumper gets minor changes and the fog lamp is now LED too. The skid plate on the lower part of the bumper and the black cladding all around the body gives it a rugged look. Coming to the side profile, it gets a 16 inch diamond cut alloy wheel and a roof rail. The rear design remains the same and comes with split LED tail lamps.
On the inside, the layout remains the same but minor changes like chrome inserts and refreshed upholstery gives it a fresh look on the inside. It continues to offer features like a touchscreen infotainment screen, multi-function steering wheel, automatic climate control, electric sunroof and so on. The 2020 Honda WR-V, just like the BS4 version, is available in both petrol and diesel engine options.
The petrol version gets a 1.2 litre unit that generates 90 PS of peak power and 110 Nm of peak torque. The diesel variant gets a 1.5 litre unit that generates 100 PS of peak power and 200 Nm of peak torque. Honda still does not offer an automatic transmission with petrol and diesel versions and continues to be powered by a 5-speed manual and 6-speed manual respectively. A CVT automatic gearbox for the petrol powered WR–V would be a good addition considering the growing demand for automatic options in the Indian market.
