Honda has updated its WR-V crossover to comply with the BS6 emissions norms, and it gets a few cosmetic tweaks, too. It now features a new wing-patterned chrome grille, new LED projector headlamps, updated taillamps, LED DRLs, LED fog lamps and new skid plates for the rear bumpers. It retains features like the diamond cut alloys and shark fin antenna from the outgoing model.
Inside, the WR-V hasn’t undergone any major changes. Just a little nip here and a tuck there. It still features the same basic dashboard design. On the safety front, it gets dual front airbags, ABS and EBD.
Mechanically, the WR-V’s power figures are the same as before, just with stricter emissions control. Both the 89 bhp, 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and 99 bhp, 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engines will come paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. No automatic gearbox on offer at the moment. Prices for the standard WR-V petrol start at Rs 8.66 lakh, while the diesel variant starts at Rs 9.96 lakh, all prices are ex-showroom, Mumbai.
