Honda has launched its new Jazz-based cross-hatchback WR-V at Rs.7.75 lakhs. The car has been launched in both petrol and diesel versions. Price of the diesel WR-V starts at Rs.8.70 lakhs. The higher version of the petrol VX model is priced at Rs.8.99 lakhs and that of the diesel variant is priced at Rs.9.99 lakhs.
WR-V is derived from Jazz from core to the skin. The bodyline, styling on the inside and the mechanicals under the hood are all taken from the hot hatch and beefed up to make a WR-V. Honda has made this car distinct from Jazz in its styling and feel: The bonnet line is raised, the Honda logo sits on the thick chrome slat floating over a honeycomb grille and the bumper is sculpted to look like a cross. The rear is partly inspired from Jazz but more from the BR-V. The L-shaped tail lamps are placed on a tapering V-tailgate.
On the engine front, powertrains options include the 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol developing 90hp and the 1.5litre i-DTEC diesel developing 100hp with Honda claiming fuel efficiency figures of 17.5kpl and 25.5kpl, respectively.
