Honda WR-V vs Ford Freestyle specification comparison

Honda WR-V vs Ford Freestyle

This gets interesting. Both the cars here are sub-4m and want to portray themselves as one up above hatchbacks. These aren’t real SUVs but what we call as faux units. The Honda WR-V is the new car here, having recently received BS6 powertrains and an updated feature list. The Ford Freestyle also has received BS6 engines earlier this year. In terms of features, the Honda WR-V has its USPs like the sunroof, bigger touchscreen infotainment system, capacious boot and more. The Ford Freestyle claws back lost ground by offering a connected car experience as standard, multiple variants to choose from, and slightly more powerful options to choose. It can easily be seen that the Honda WR-V is the more premium-looking car with LED projector headlights, bigger wheels and overall larger dimensions.

But, the Ford Freestyle is the nicer car to drive and overall is priced lower than the Honda. Ford has more service centres than Honda and that in our case, seals the deal and makes the Freestyle the winner of this comparison.
