About Honda WRV 2017-2020

To take on the likes of Hyundai i20 active and Etios Cross, Honda has launched WR-V in Indian market in the price range of Rs7.67- 9.92 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The WR-V is based on the Jazz platform though it looks entirely different thanks to the beefed-up wheel arches, all-around cladding, and aggressive nose with thick slatted chrome grill. Interiors are made up of quality material and asymmetric theme of the Honda continues inside the WR-V also. There are many first-in-class features like sunroof and infotainment system with inbuilt Wi-Fi connectivity for luring millennials. Honda W-RV is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-liter diesel engine capable of putting out 89PS/110 Nm and 100 PS/ 200 Nm respectively, mated to the 6-speed manual transmission with no automatic option available for now. Honda is offering WR-V in two trim levels -S and VX in both petrol and diesel guise.

Honda WRV 2017-2020 Overview

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.

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).

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying WRV 2017-2020

  • No automatic transmission is available in WRV only manual transmission is available.
  • As of now, there is no confirmation from the brand's end regarding its diesel automatic version. Stay connected for further updates.

Q. Is Jazz better than WRV?
  • WRV is built on the same platform as Jazz. Only changes are it gets big size tyresR16, better ground clearance and optional sun roof. I give you more points on Jazz here. The current Jazz offered in both petrol and diesel variants is very pricey compared to its rivals. The only value plus points of Jazz are well refined 1.2 L petrol engine(+), CVT(++) and cabin/ boot space(+++). The attractive feature is rear tail LED lamps. The body built of the Jazz is sturdy and seems a real metal. All other specifications and features of Jazz fall far behind the competition. Even top variants do not get: R16 tyres, Auto head lamps, Rain sensing wipers, Rear head rests, Rear AC, DRLs, LED-projector head lamps, Cooled glove box, Rear arm rest and IVRS auto dimming that are offered on Altroz, i20, Baleno, Kwid, Micra etc. The main dis-advantages of Jazz are: too many blind spots, expensive service costs (with horrible 6 month interval), touch AC- not easy to set while driving, dual horn may not be reachable to small palms (so you have to remove one hand from steering to use the horn), spare tyre is R14 steel and front arm rest which is positioned too low to use. In some areas, after sales-service is also not professional. There are some other features in the top variants which are of rear use on Indian roads like cruise control and paddle shifts (that gives a sporty feeling though). Of course Honda dedicated years on cosmetic changes like addition of DRLs, LED projectors (this year), push start, rear LED tail lamps, Digipad 2.0, capacitive touch door handles (Last year) etc. 6 x bottle holders are standard across all the variants of JAZZ (petrol and Diesel). No worries.
  • WRV has a few advantages like higher ground clearance, more boot space, may be a bit more spacious. But down to the engine, its still the same power train I guess. WRV is kind of SUV ish car. not the full fledged SUV but kind of. Jazz has some advantage over the fuel economy because its lighter than WRV. But none is better than the other. Also WRV doesn't get an automatic version like the Jazz CVT.
  • Depends WRV is out of jazz only.If you buy petrol then go for jazz only as wrv is extra 60kg heavier and engine is underpowered.Whereas diesel you can pick any. WRV gives you different looks and little extra ground clearance

Q. Which is best for performance EcoSport or WRV (petrol version)?
  • 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.

Q. Is buying Honda WRV worth for money?
  • 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

    Under power is it's main draw back. The vehicle doesn't move forward easily unless and until we shift gears. The gear box isn't smooth enough resulting in jerks. Wish the company looks in these matters at the earliest.

    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.

    Excellent in long rides and city use. very good comfortable and quick acceleration as well. Getting an 24 km/l on Ecco drive and getting 19 to 21 km/l on performance drive. Negative part is Honda's Digipad, its one of the waste Digipad that i ever saw. Also break pad's life is very less. around 15k to 20k kilometres maximum, after that we need to change the Break pads.
