Honda has recently released the teaser of the 2020 WR-V facelift. The new Honda crossover will hit the Indian shores on 2nd July 2020.
Honda Cars India Ltd is all set to launch the 2020 WR-V on 2nd July. The date has been confirmed by the latest teaser video released by the carmaker on a social media platform. The automaker has already started accepting bookings for the updated model, and one can book the updated crossover at a token amount of Rs 21,000. This will be the first update for the car since its launch in 2017. The major enhancement here will come in the form of the addition of new BS6-compliant engines.
Apart from the employment of new powertrain, the car will also sportsome styling updates. The front fascia of the WR-V will feature a new horizontal slat grille. These subtle design tweaks will make the car look sportier as compared to the pre-facelift model. Moreover, the headlamp cluster has also been updated as it now features LED projector units along with new LED DRLs.
The side profile of the car remains very similar to that of the outgoing model. Nevertheless, the rear fascia has been updated and features some cosmetic tweaks such as new LED taillights. Inside, the cabin of the car doesn’t get much of a change. The spy images we have seen so far suggest that the cabin of the 2020 WR-V will remain quite identical to the 2017 model.

Pricing of the new 2020 WR-V is likely to increase by Rs 15,000 for gasoline models and around Rs 50,000 for the diesel trims.
