Honda has started shipping the WR-V compact crossover to its dealerships across the country, ahead of its official launch next month. Images of a WR-V petrol in the VX trim had surfaced previously on Team-BHP, giving us an idea about the car's design and features on offer. The crossover has been spotted again at a dealer stockyard, this time in its diesel avatar.
Exterior design elements of the diesel model are similar to that of the petrol, including a prominent chrome bar in the front grille, new headlamps with DRLs, faux skid plates on the bumpers, body cladding on the wheel arches & lower door panels and new diamond-cut alloy wheels. The new images also clearly show a sunroof on offer with the top-end VX trim, along with silver roof rails. The spotted model is in a new shade of orange, which is expected to be the marketing colour of the WR-V in India.
On the inside, it gets a push start/stop button as well as cruise control. The cabin gets an all-black layout, while the dashboard design and instrument cluster are similar to that of the Jazz hatchback. However, the WR-V gets a new infotainment screen with navigation, which appears to be borrowed from the recently launched 2017 City facelift. You can also see the diesel's 6-speed MT.
