Honda WR-V– Even though the SUV was not available during the BS6 2 period, the WR-V will probably return in the upcoming years. The WR-V is already available for retail purchase in Indonesia, where it has ADAS technology and larger proportions. Can this WR-V, though, find its way to India? At the moment, Honda sells the City and Amaze in the nation. SUVs are obviously a popular choice among Indian automobile buyers, as both models are sedans.

At the moment, Honda sells the City and Amaze in the nation. SUVs are obviously a popular choice among Indian automobile buyers, as both models are sedans.
In the upcoming years, this will probably give way to the WR-V’s debut. The length of the international-spec WR-V is 4,060mm, and its wheelbase is 2,485mm. It has the much-needed SUV presence and looks mature. With this, the WR-V would be a strong competitor for vehicles like the Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, and Tata Nexon if it were to be released in India.
What features will be available in the new Honda WR-V?
Upgrading from the present model, the 2023 Honda WR-V will have an SUV-like style and design. The chrome-studded front grille and LED headlights with integrated LED DRLs dominate the front. The new LED fog lamp housing will be housed in a re-profiled front bumper, while the alloy wheels will sport a new look. The C-pillar-mounted door handle is an unusual placement, and the hefty plastic cladding around the wheel arches gives it a beefier appearance. A rear wiper, a silver skid plate, and split LED taillamps are further features.
Though it has a similar design to the India-spec Amaze, the Honda WR-V’s inside is all black with red accents on the door pads, dashboard, and driver’s seat. A nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system, leatherette upholstery, automated climate control, and a rearview camera are among the options available. Additionally, it might come equipped with Honda Sensing, the ADAS suite. Up to five people can sit in this particular model.
Honda WR-V 2024 Engine
The 1.5-liter, 121-horsepower petrol engine and CVT gearbox from the fifth-generation City are shared by the new SUV. If it were imported to India, Honda might install the current model’s smaller 1.2-liter gasoline engine instead. With dimensions of 4,060mm in length, 1,780mm in width, and 1,608mm in height, it is larger than the SUV from the previous generation. With a wheelbase of 2,485mm, it is 70mm shorter than the vehicle from the previous generation that is already available for purchase.
Honda WR-V 2024 Price
The Honda WR-V was last known to cost between ₹ 8.01 Lakh and ₹ 12.31 Lakh in India. The vehicle was offered in six different configurations. The base WR-V SV MT Petrol Manual model costs ₹ 9.11 Lakh, while the top-tier WR-V VX MT Diesel Diesel Manual model costs ₹ 12.31 Lakh.
Honda WR-V 2024 interior
It’s not incorrect if you think the interior of the Honda WR-V seems familiar. Virtually every inside component of the Amaze sedan that is available in India has been ported over to the WR-V by Honda. The steering wheel, controls, infotainment screen, dashboard, and even the seats appear to be identical to those of the Amaze.
Honda WR-V Safety Features
Any vehicle’s top priority should always be safety, and this Honda is no different. Honda is well known for adding cutting-edge safety systems to its vehicles, such as automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assistance. It’s likely that the WR-V will come equipped with these features, giving both drivers and passengers peace of mind.
