Honda WRV Latest Updates
Starting December 2019, Honda is offering an Anytime warranty which can cover the car for up to 10 years and 1.2 lakh km.
Honda has added a new V variant for its compact SUV, the WR-V. Available in the diesel variant only, it gets some additional features when compared to its base-spec diesel variant. Priced at Rs 9.95 lakh (ex-showroom), it costs Rs 70,000 more than the base-spec ‘S’ trim level. Apart from the introduction of the new variant, the base-spec ‘S’ and top-end ‘V’ trim levels gets some additional features.
These updates have pushed the prices of the WR-V up by Rs 32,000 depending on the variant you pick. The WR-V now starts from Rs 8.15 lakh and goes up to Rs 10.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The WR-V is offered with two engine options - a 1.5-litre diesel engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 1.2-litre petrol motor paired with a 5-speed manual. Like all other Hondas, the cross-hatch is an effortless drive. The diesel, although noisy, is the one that balances city and highway jaunts better.
The WR-V is offered in just two variants with each engine option. The VX trim offers additional goodies like one-touch open and close sunroof, fog lamps, 16-inch diamond cut alloys, multi view rear camera, six speakers, etc. The diesel variant gets two exclusive features - cruise control and passive keyless entry. The extra features offered in top-spec variants justify the Rs 1.25 lakh premium they command.
At first glance, the Honda WR-V looks like the tougher cousin on the Jazz hatchback. Although it is based on the Jazz, the WR-V gets a completely redesigned nose and the bonnet now sits much higher and flatter. The front and rear bumpers look butch and get a faux skid plate as well. Although Honda has tried really hard to hide any resemblance to the Jazz, the side profile of the car will remind you of the hatchback. However, the WR-V stands tall with a ground clearance of 188mm, which is only 10mm less than the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
Despite looking tough from the outside, the WR-V’s cabin feels very similar to the Jazz’s interior. The first thing you’ll notice is the segment-fist sunroof, which when paired with the larger greenhouse amps up the sense of space. It can accommodate tall passengers quite easily as there is enough headroom and legroom. The seats, on the other hand, are quite soft and foamy, which is well and good for short distances but will give you some discomfort on long road trips. The top-spec WR-V comes with all the bells and whistles you’d expect. You get a smart key, push button start-stop, and cruise control. A 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with built-in navigation and voice controls can also mirror your smartphone and double up as the display for the rear parking camera.
Honda WRV Competitors
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza: The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza seems to be the biggest threat to the Honda WR-V. The Brezza offers a more engaging drive, can seat your entire family and gives you a much better SUV experience overall.
Ford EcoSport : The one that kicked off the segment in style. The EcoSport combines proper mini-SUV looks with sporty handling, top-shelf safety kit and a choice of three engine and two transmission options. There’s not much wrong with it, honestly.
Tata Nexon : Among the best vehicles to roll out of a Tata factory, the Nexon comes very close to acing the compact-SUV game. The funky styling, big 350-litre boot and some segment-firsts like an activity key make it a formidable force in the segment.
Hyundai i20 Active: Hyundai’s i20 Active is your friendly neighbourhood Elite i20 on stilts. It retains the plush interiors, the easy to drive nature and the host of tech. It’s nowhere close to being a SUV or a crossover, but is a fantastic cross-hatch nonetheless.

Editor's View of Honda WRV
Sunroof! Looks sportier than Jazz, Large 363-litre boot, Great view out makes city driving easy, Efficient diesel engine
Touch controls for A/C annoying, Rear seats are not comfortable, Suspension gets very bouncy above 80kmph
The WR-V has the ingredients to make it the best crossover hatchback in the segment but falls short because of a soft suspension and poorly designed rear seats.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying WRV
- Recently I bought new Honda WRV 'V' model diesel 2019.Before this car ,I owned Fiat linea classic diesel 1.3 multijet car which is now an old legendary discontinued model.I was also tense that which new car I should purchase after fiat linea.I was just looking inlieu of linea.When I drove Honda wrv and witnessed it's tough body and driving behavior I selected WRV .Now I am a happy and satisfied customer with complete sense of relaxation.Few important features are (1) tough built and ruggedness (2) safety features 5 star safety rating because it is based on jazz platform (3) Fully loaded infotainment and best navigation in its segment (4) 16 inch alloy wheels (5) Rear parking camera and sound sensors (6) Multiple ports for USB,Hdmi etc(7) Last but not the least,the wellbehaved Honda sales personal(Libra Honda,Dhanbad),no hidden charges,no false commitments so you will never see any TV ad of Honda cars because they serve the Indians in true sense
- The WR-V comes close to living up to its promise of being THE most usable and practical car in the segment but falls short because of small oversights. A slightly stiffer suspension and simple additions like firmer seats and adjustable or at least large rear headrests would work wonders. While it certainly is a practical/usable package wrapped in butch looks, it doesn’t do that in a way that outclasses its rivals. You may also consider Vitara Brezza, EcoSport and the i20 Active before you make a final call.
- For petrol if you need power thats its not worth i dnt need much power and my running is also nt so much so its good for me for diesel i think its a worth as it has really good power
- According to me honda any time better then ford as i currently own ford ecosport then to what honda delivers is great value for money and high end quality product which is well tested and build according to india condition. Honda is know for its quality as in ford they highly lack in quality as there is always issue in electronic sensors engine indicator light turns on any time inspite of regular and time to time service plus as we know water logging condition in mumbai ford highly fail if you take drive car even 2 ft and above water level car stops working and then there is huge amount of bill you need to pay to get car back ok track basically ford don't invest and build the car according to indian wether condition this goes specially for ecosport. So highly suggest go for wrv
- MIleage - WRV I will divide comfort in several aspects: 1. Seating comfort 1st row - Ecosport (better back and cushion support and feel than Honda seats) 2. Seating comfort 2nd row - WRV (Very well suited for long drives for 3 persons. Bucket seats are better positioned compared to Ecosports) 3. Headroom, legroom and width - WRV (Honda has put in a lot of thought and provided us with an awesome usage space) 4. Luggage space - WRV. 5 . Seating position - Ecosports (A little edge there as seat position of ecosports driver seat is approx 50 mm higher than WRV) 6. Sunroof - WRV 7. Body roll - Ecosport Mileage - both are equally good in petrol variants; for diesel - definitely WRV. Resale price - ECO sport will fetch a bit more than WRV though not drastic difference. Value for money - IMO both are equally good but still if your family is of 5 persons and prefer a top end petrol car, WRV should be the choice. Other wise Ecosport should suit you just as fine.
- Both the cars are good to buy and stands good on their ground. On one hand, WR-V borrows quite a lot from the Jazz but manages to stand tall on its own toes. It’s got space, it’s efficient and has the right amount of feel-good features. Then there’s Honda’s reputation for reliability. Also, it’s your only option if you want a cross-hatch with a sunroof. So, WRV is for you. On the other hand, EcoSport has got its mojo back. It’s among the only ones in its class that actually looks like a scaled down SUV and not a blown-up hatchback. If you need a small SUV that has some swag, you know where to head.
- No, as of now only Manual Transmission available.
- No only Manual Transmission is available.
- No if you want one go for JAZZ
- Ecosport anytime without a doubt. The diesel gives overall mileage of 18-19 kmpl. on highways 22-24, in city 16-19, and if driven cautiously with less gear shifts it gives more than 24 kmpl. at speeds around 70 kmph. I own a Diesel model, 6 years plus, there is simply no problems at all i have faced. no complaints, no loose parts, no extra costs accept tyre replacement. even the brakes/transmission/clutch/pressure parts are all intact. The best build quality and steadiness you will get in this segment. I am fond of drive at 170+ kmph generally and believe there is no other car in this segment that has such stability at higher speeds.
- Ecosport titanium for its name in market..safety features (6 air bags)...engine especially diesel ...automatic variant plus adequate mileage in petrol and diesel.
- Definitely Ecosport, go for a test drive and you will understand that Ecosport is far better than WRV.
- WRV is designed on Jazz. Thus effectively Hatchback with higher ground clearance. Brezza is specifically designed for sub-compact SUV. So would be better. Plus Maruti service cost would be lower.Pls buy Brezza diesel immediately as it will be discontinued very soon.
- WRV is most likely a hatch back. Brezza is a compact SUV . Looks height , Good ground clearance , Best mileage , Magic performance. AMT & Manual available. My choice is brezza
- Both the cars are looking smart but WRV has sunroofs. Brezza is some more higher.
- The petrol unit is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, whereas the diesel variant is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission. However, the brand hasn't revealed any details for the launch of CVT variants. Stay tuned for further updates.

I from Pune and owner of WRV Petrol SMT Model,Whereas I totally disappointed by WRV Pertrol performance and its Pick up issue Specially in Slope/Ghat section, In traffic situation ..I repeatedly check with my dealer on same from First Month of Purchase to Till Date (Since more than half year)..but still they does not provide any solution and now it fustrating situation for me. Previously I owned the Honda Brio and based on its performance I like honda to consider to go for WRV model also I have shared my requirement at the time of purschasing with Sales Team as well including Safety Feature and Performance ..Whereas they recommanded me WRV Petrol engine But now It seems they have cheated me as my requirements are not getting fulfiil.Now It is life threatening experience with WRV Petrol issue due to its Pick and Performance issue .. Now I faced horrible issue with WRV Petrol car performance ..My car is not moving forward on slope, it get rolled back where as having heavy traffic on road.. it almost hit back vehicles ..This happens multiple time ..Also when I check with dealer I came to know that they are already aware about this issue and the got answer that they do not have any option to resolve this as all engine are calibrated digitally/ It as per designed. In each visit I got answer from Deccan Honda representative that after servicing It will work better but Its not true I am still facing same issue.I have invested my hard earn money to buy this vechicle for Family. Whereas It look like Honda/Dealer dosent care about customer and their issue and playing with other lives.Now It almost a year that I am following up with them for same issue and still not get proper resolution .. Now I feel that Dealer need to take this vehicle back or solve my issue and its their resposiblility that they have delayed on provinding solution.
I bought this vehicle in 2018 as a family car and i am quite happy with its exterior and interiors. However, i experienced its poor pick up in crowded roads and have to use lower gear which is not a good feature of the vehicle. Another instance, within 2nd month of its purchase, when traveling to Ooty, on one of the uphill roads, the engine just GAVE UP! and just dint budge because the accelerator and clutch was a failure!!When i reported this to the Honda service supervisor, they dint take it seriously and said the vehicle has to undergo couple of services to show up its true side!!Now it gets interesting...after using 25500 kms within 1 year 3 months, Clutch pressure plate and Fly wheel GAVE UP!! and i ended up spending Rs. 25,000 for putting up new parts.Now when i complained that this should not have happened since it is driven 25000 kms and not even 2 years, they came back consoling me that these Wear and Tear happens when you drive in city??What is more annoying is that these service supervisors wont allow customers to speak to mechanics who actually repaired your car, neither these service supervisors have any expertise??Engine and maintenance wise, i am against Honda WRV.
I have seen some reviews related to petrol version and hence I am adding mine also. Those who reviewed excellent is for the diesel version(see the mileage) and the disappointed reviews are for petrol version. I am one among the disappointed and cheated owner driving petrol version for the last 20 months. The dealer did not solve my problem regarding low pick up. So I contacted honda. They also did not solve the issue. As pointed out in another review , the vehicle rolls back when we try to move to move the vehicle upward in a steep road. It will be embarrassing, when there is another vehicle behind you. As said earlier Honda is cheating its customers with this petrol version. The vehicle is excellent for plain city road, I admit. In hilly terrain driving will be a nightmare and many times you will have to apply hand brakes to prevent the vehicle from rolling back.
In my WRV, I observed good milage @ 16 KMPL in city and 17+ with AC on Highway. The pick up of car is very good. I drived diesel maruti car before this. I feel I selected best now, no vibration and noise in cabin is so less tht one can enjoy music bit in slow volume due to six speakers in top model. I suggest go for top model in Honda petrol so refined engine, top make tyres, sturdy body and good boot space, less efforts in power steering. The jumpers so smooth R16 TL tyres gives less jarks in drive of car on potholes. This car is value for money. I bought dark color metallic grey, the silver finish accessories gives high effect on dark colour.
I brought this car and it's given so many issues in just 15000 km like suspension, dashboard noise, door noise, AC complain and much more if you thought for this car then you has wrong decision. If you want why I"m said like this I have all conversation record with honda after brought this failure car made by honda India it's not and never use any Japan technology.
best in its segment.zero maintainence,mileage 27 to 30 kmpl.
Best Car in this segment....Love it's performance mileage is the maximum can get upto 24 kms per litre...large boot space..Sunroof adds to it's swag..Great controls...
Best Car in this segment... Value for Money...Tough Safe and swag...what else you want..Sun roof adds to the beauty and rich feeling...Awesome..Just go and buy it
Honda wr v is nice car ,comfort wise and style also super
very nice built 👌......and .. comfortable amazing mileage
