Default Re: Honda WR-V (Jazz-based crossover). EDIT: Unveiled!

What is wrong with the design team at Honda?

When almost all OEMs are moving to clean designs, they manage to come out with this awkward and downright ugly looking version of the Jazz?

The original Jazz looks quite pleasant in my opinion, but with this, they have managed to screw it up. The low strung shoulder line looks like an afterthought, it's like they were forced to have them there as they ran out of an option. The notch above the cladding on the wheels looks just UGLY. Everyone else has symmetry there for a reason - it looks good. Oh and those tail lamps. Hope they give a car cover as a free accessory with this so that owners can keep it covered as far as possible!

I wonder why anyone would buy this over the Ecosport or Brezza or even the current Jazz.

This makes the Cross Polo and i20 Active look like a better option.

Honda designing products looking similar and to fare bad in the market - one after the other! First Mobilio and BR-V, and now Jazz and WR-V... Match the following which are looking similar, and even a car expert will be in confusion! (Image source: respective websites)

Scrap everything except this WR-V and call it Jazz, provide quality parts, and multiple engine options (Petrol, Diesel, 1.5L and even a 2L). There is a chance to succeed.

Take a car from the line, increase GC, put a plastic kit with new tail light, and a new beak of course a roof rail. vola we have a new car. Pretend like testing with camouflage wrap with speculation..And release it
Result: DC inspired city or jazz or CR-V. Yay we have 10+ cars on line to pest customers every six months for service and every alternate month going to service center for rattles, part failures.
Great business model HONDA keep it up
To remove confusion please name them A,A+ ,BB+, C,C+, D,D+ hondas

I wasn't expecting Honda to get the front end as well as the rear wrong, especially after the BR-V. The issue with the BR-V was that it looked too much like the Mobilio from the sides, with the too-big rear doors and the extended rear overhang. What they got right was the front and rear styling, which IMO is very macho and SUV-like. How they could have got it completely wrong in the WR-V is beyond me. It just doesn't work.
