Soon Honda will update the WR-V to meet BS6 emission standards and the updated model has even begun to reach showrooms, suggesting its imminent launch.
The engine choices would stay the same: a 1.2-liter gasoline generating 90PS and 110Nm, and a 1.5-liter diesel generating 100PS and 200Nm; The gasoline will be used in a 5-speed manual while the diesel will get a 6-speed manual. Even with this update, Honda will unlikely offer any automatic options with the WR-V.
The main external improvement comes in the form of a new front grille, although the shape of the bumper has been changed a bit. However, Honda has in the tail lamps given the BS6 WR-V LED projector headlamps, LED fog lamps, and LED elements to differentiate this from the outgoing edition.
The WR-V’s talking points are also based around its list of equipment which includes features such as a sunroof and cruise control. No notable improvements on the inside of the sub-4 meter SUV are apparent. The controller will be a modern device and should come with apps for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Many prominent features such as temperature controls, automatic keyless entry with push button start-stop and 16-inch wheels from the outgoing model would be carried forward. That being mentioned, it seems like a separate selection of alloys would come from the petrol and diesel models.
On the safety board, the WR-V will continue to come fitted with dual board airbags, EBD ABS and a rear parking camera with multi-screen screen.
