1.2 Petrol and 1.5 Diesel.

Since direct competitor and segment leader Brezza does not have petrol option, they decided to compare diesel.

Brezza has 2, so I guess WRV also has 2, so that's a tally; still, nothing beats Ecosport & Ecoboost except for the price.

If Honda prices it competitive to Brezza, then Maruti should see a good dent on their sales & waiting period.

Default Scoop Pics! Honda WR-V production begins in India

Spotted at the Dahisar Check Naka, Mumbai. Was stuck in traffic so spoke to the guy. It seems there are 16 vehicles out to go to the showrooms across Mumbai today. Car looks good on road overall! He said it would be hidden but tomorrow onwards they'd be showcasing it. Not sure how much of this is true but it's what he told me

Am I little bit confused here ?
Honda is going to fight in two segments with only one vehicle.
i20 Active, Cross Polo, Etios cross, Fiat Avventura with WR-V Petrol.
Brezza, Ecosport with WR-V Diesel.
Ignoring the NVH, i-Dtech is capable of competing with DDiS & TDCi. There are good chances for ecosport loosing the numbers to WR-V than Brezza as the later is Maruti.
Yes, Honda really forces the customer to pay premium for Sunroof & Start/Stop button :-(

Dr. Sahab, you just pressed right at my ailing nerve. The pull of sunroof is something that has finally hit me too, and how.

Recently my cousin sis lost her car in an accident, the search for new car started at creta petrol AT, went to Tucson AT and now is on Octavia 1.8. Initially the safety was on the top of the list and now it is replaced by 'sunroof'

Now guess what the reason for this sunroof demand is. Please try to. Well, there are 2 reasons:
1) That makes her feel like her car is a very premium one
2) Her friends also like it

So, sunroof is a very smartly played trump card by Honda IMO, they are very well aware of the fact that Indians love when their wife and kid peek out of sunroof. Hence Honda gave this super duper mega dega feature in a segment where this 'very premium' feature was previously unseen (Forget old gen i10, those were different days).

I personally know people who went gaga over the auto closing mirrors, sunglass holder, steering mounted controls and rear Ac vents - and then bought i20. Now, they will 'upgrade' to WR-V and get a sunroof in exchange for rear Ac vents

So inspite of losing a car in an accident, sunroof is primary & safety is secondry!!

No wonder India made cars score 0 in crash tests.

Sunroof can be had as a aftermarket but not Safety features. I've seen many Tata Sierra owners doing it some 2 decades back.

Coming to the pricing - Couple of days back, I met a Sales Executive. As per his knowledge, only 2 Variants will be launched - S & Vx. And the Vx Petrol may Cost around ₹11 lakhs OTR, Bangalore, which translates to ₹9.2 lakhs, ex-showroom.

And Vx Diesel will be approx. ₹13 lakhs, OTR, Bangalore. So, it might be ₹11 lakhs, ex-showroom.

Also, got a Call from Honda Call centre yesterday, as I'd left my Phone No. He informed that the WRV, will be launched @11:30 am on 16th March, 2017.

Push start button and cruise control would be reserved to Diesel only variant. Seems like there would be a huge differential in pricing between petrol and diesel.

Only two variants per powertrain..."S" and "VX"

Very pricey. Overshot by at least 75,000 rupees than what would have been ideal pricing, across all variants.

Pricing comparison with equivalent Jazz variants:

S MT petrol = 6,52,300
VX MT petrol = 7,81,250
S MT diesel = 7,88,850
VX MT diesel = 9,18,100

Let's see how the market responds.

One word for Pricing - STUPID

Its all over for Honda WR-V

Dear WR-V, the pit is ready for you to rest, I think your company will take you there in few months. You won't be alone, you have your sibling Mobilio waiting for you there. Your friends are laughing now looking at the way your company has priced you. Better Luck Next Time.
