Honda has launched the BS6 compliant WR-V facelift in India with a fresh set of cosmetic and feature updates. The updated Honda WR-V is available in two variants – SV and VX, in both petrol and diesel engine options. The vehicle is available in six colour options - premium amber metallic, lunar silver metallic, modern steel metallic, golden brown metallic, radiant red metallic and platinum white pearl.

Exterior

The updated model features a new bold solid wing chrome grille and rides on new R16 dual tone diamond cut alloy wheels. Features like advanced LED projector headlamps with integrated DRLs and position lamp, electric sunroof, LED front fog lights, turn indicator on ORVMs, advanced LED rear combination lamp, rear wiper and washer and chrome shark fin are offered in the VX variant.

Interior

The updated WR-V gets premium seat upholstery with emboss and mesh design. The additional chrome accents give a premium feel to the cabin. The vehicle gets Digipad 2.0 seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The infotainment system offers a host of advanced functionality like in-built satellite linked turn-by-turn navigation, live traffic support through USB Wi-Fi receiver, voice command, messages, Bluetooth handsfree telephony and audio and wireless infrared remote. Features like leather front armrest with storage space, wrapped steering wheel, silver finish door ornament and silver finish dashboard ornament is limited to the top-spec VX variant.

Engine

Both the variants are available in petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine generates 89bhp at 6,000rpm and 110Nm at 4,800rpm. This engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The diesel version gets a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine that generates 98bhp at 3,600rpm and 200Nm at 1,750rpm and comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The petrol guise has fuel efficiency of 16.6kmpl, while the diesel version has a fuel efficiency of 23.7kmpl.

Honda has reportedly applied its advanced exhaust gas after-treatment system with NSC (NOx Storage Catalyst) and DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) to meet the challenging target of particulate matter (PM) and Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emission in case of diesel engines. Honda's original Silver Thin Coated DPF (STC-DPF) enables reduction of PM combustion time by 40 per cent compared to the conventional DPF.

The company offers three years unlimited kilometres warranty as standard benefit to the customers. Additionally, the customers can opt for Extended Warranty for additional two years. The car offers low cost of maintenance with Service interval of 1 year/ 10,000km whichever is earlier and the three-year Annual Maintenance Package at the time of car purchase with an average cost of Rs 4,000 for petrol and Rs 6,000 for diesel per year.
