Congrats buddy on booking the WRV.

I accompanied my friend a couple of days back for a short WRV TD. I was the rear passenger trying to identify all sorts of rattles, squeaks. Crystal Honda Bavdhan had a petrol version available for TD. Took the bypass route upto NIA and back.

The front seat was set for his 5' 6" frame and I was pleasantly surprised with the acres of space available. The salesman (@ 6') had pushed his seat around midway mark. But that too left generous space for rear left passenger.

For points 2, 6 - AC, I found it lacking in cooling for rear passengers, may be since the car had been baking in almost 40C heat. It wasn't chilly at all but did not feel suffocated. The blower is noisy.

For point 7, I noticed quite a bit of vertical movement in the rear when going over humps or pot holes at a moderate speed.

A fair bit of road noise was filtering in from the boot area. I highlighted this to the Sales person and he said the TD vehicle was involved in a not so major rear end accident and could be the reason for it. But surprisingly for a TD car that too out of an accident, the vehicle was rattle free, road noise that crept in was not intrusive or jarring. The seats were comfy but a tad softer.

Overall I was impressed with the vehicle. But sadly not in the market for a new car right now.

I agree. Rear passengers too should have adjustable head rests. Not just for comfort, it saves greatly in case of being rear-ended. My car was rear ended heavily by an Innova, and our heads really pressed hard into the headrests. I shudder to think what would happen if the headrests weren't there. It is unfortunate that even in the new Amaze, the same pillow type rear seat is continued.

Split seats too should be present. The rear seat thinking of S-cross is perfect, with flat folding seats, 60:40 split and headrests. I hope some premium version of WR-V addresses these issues, though I think getting proper rear headrests can never be achieved in these cars.

Frankly, not having adjustable rear headrest is a big NO NO. It is a huge safety issue.

In case one ever has a front impact, one sees it coming and in whatever reaction time available, becomes kinda ready to bare the impact. However, if someone ever gets rear ended, chances are that the person sitting behind would have absolutely no clue about it, and the sudden impact will impact the neck so badly that the person might have to roam around with a neck belt for the rest of his life, UNLESS the person is so short that his head is completely supported with whatever those tiny fixed headrests are.

To all WRV owners, what type of floor mats are you using. The ones given to us were totally worthless and to top it off they misplaced one of those during the first service. I am looking for customized floor mats for WRV and not the generic ones that you need to cut and fit.

Anyone got the original Honda WRV mats or any other aftermarket one please share your feedback.
