Honda Car India, after the lockdown is going to have a flurry of products to be launched. The manufacturer, which earlier, was planning to launch the all-new City and then the WR-V facelift now also has the Jazz in the pipeline. Honda’s factories though are locked at the moment and this is precisely why the prices of the products haven’t been announced. Just before the lockdown, Honda had started bookings of the updated WR-V. It now seems that the company has updated its website with the updated features for the car.
What are the new features of the Honda WR-V facelift?
The new features include an updated grille which will give the car a more SUV-like stance. Then there are the LED projectors which again while enhancing the illumination, will also get in a bit more panache. Honda has also got in LED tail lights. Inside, there is an upholstery change and at the same time, cruise control too has been added. The infotainment system, while Honda hasn’t mentioned anything on it, looks updated and a tad bigger too. It should have the regular Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay.
Honda has clearly said that the new WR-V will have a choice of BS6 petrol and diesel engines. The Honda WR-V facelift, we believe, will continue with the same set of petrol and diesel engines from the BS4 era but updated for BS6. The 1.2-litre petrol engine should make 90PS of power and 114Nm whereas the updated 1.5-litre diesel should be good for 100PS/200Nm. Expect a slight drop in the fuel efficiency when compared with the BS4 model.
The Honda WR-V facelift price in India should go up from what it currently is retailed at Rs 8.15 lakh and goes up to Rs 10.35 lakh. Honda, going by what they did with the Amaze, should price the car at a Rs 15,000 premium for petrol and Rs 60,000 for diesel. This will make the WR-V one of the priciest stilted hatchback on sale.
