2020 Honda WR-V gets exterior and interior changes along with BSVI-compliant petrol and diesel engine options.
Honda WR-V was first launched in India in 2017, be it a potential sub-four-metre compact SUV for our country. The WR-V has never witnessed a great success as the Japanese brand had expected, given the ever-growing competition from the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue or Tata Nexon. Not giving up on the vehicle, Honda is gearing up for 2020 BSVI-compliant version of the WR-V. Bookings for the 2020 Honda WR-V has commenced at a token amount of Rs 21,000. The launch of the 2020 WR-V is slated for later this month.
In its BSVI avatar, the 2020 Honda WR-V will get a refreshed styling that incorporates new horizontal front grille, LED projector headlights and fog lamps, new bumper design, silver skid plates, sunroof, LED taillamps among others.
The 2020 Honda WR-V will continue to employ either a 1.2-litre -VTEC petrol engine or a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel unit. Honda hasn’t revealed the full specs of the 2020 WR-V BS6 powertrains. However, we expect them to carry quite a similar power output figures to the preceding BS4 model.
In the BS4 form, the 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol burner can deliver 89 BHP of power and 110 Nm of torque while the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel mill can churn out 99 BHP/ 200 Nm of torque. Transmission duties on the WR-V will be handled by a 5-speed MT as standard while there’s no confirmation on the automatic variant as yet.
In another development, Honda is set to introduce the 2020 Honda City that will officially go on sale in March 16, 2020. The new-gen City will boast massive changes inside-out along with heavy mechanical upgrades. The much-awaited Honda City’s highlighting features should be a sunroof, Alexa integration and four airbags.
