Default Re: BS6 Honda WR-V facelift pre-bookings open

The WR-V's BS6 1.5L i-DTEC is rated at 23.7 kmpl, a dip of ~1.7 kmpl over it's BS4 counterpart.

The BS6 1.2L i-VTEC is rated at 16.5 kmpl, about ~1.0 kmpl lower than the equivalent BS4.

The BS-6 WR-V will come with a warranty of 3 years and unlimited kilometers. Colour options will be the same as before. Alloy wheels will be different in design for petrol & diesel.

The 1.2 petrol engine is just about alright for city commute,and on the highway it can cruise comfortably even with 5 occupants around 100kmph to 120kmph,but there is no outright performance especially if you want to overtake,its just a cruiser.Also the air conditioning takes time to cool the cabin mainly because of the huge glass area.
The facelift should have come with a 1.5L petrol and that would have definitely given a much needed punch to the WRV sales, even if the cost would have gone up to around rs 1 lac extra customers wouldn't have mind paying as it would have definitely been worth it
Same here - We have the VX Petrol August 2018 and my mother uses it strictly for urban city commute. In-fact my MiL also has the VX, one of my cousin's wife has it - all 3 were bought in the year and I was involved in each of those decisions. Every decision was based on

1. Space
2. Height
3. Compact enough for city commute

When I pointed out the 2 major drawbacks

1. A/C does not cool the backseat as well.
2. The manual petrol is not a dream to drive.

None had a concern for that - because my MIL and my mom's WRV is chauffeur driven and my SIL uses it only with the cantonment area.

If you know why you are buying what you are buying and what trade-offs you are making - you won't complain.

Honda has started accepting bookings for 2020 WR-V.

No 1.5 engine and no AT either. Highly disappointed. Honda's arrogance or stupidity, whatever it is, is just beyond me . They are hell bent on killing a very potent product in their already limited line-up.

Any car would make it on inclines but how comfortably it makes it through is the subject matter here. The Jazz does feel stressed over steep inclines and I have personally experienced it many a times. Having owned the 2003 City Vtec (sold off in 2011) and having driven the Jazz pretty extensively, I still stand by my argument.

People who live in Delhi would know of the single side flyover at Punjabi Bagh Club (Punjabi Bagh is a place located in West Delhi and it has a club right at the intersection where this flyover is located and hence the name). Now, this flyover witnesses frequent traffic jams and stop & go traffic during peak hours and its approach angle is also a bit steep than normal. I used to frequent this flyover pretty often and have done the same in a relative's Jazz as well. The only three cars I have driven which felt stressed with 4 passengers while approaching this flyover are Jazz (owned by my cousin brother), Santro (self owned), and Tiago (owned by a friend). All three cars exhibited a totally different character on this incline with the Santro even tripping its air conditioner (someone told me its a known issue with the 2005-2007 model year cars) during Delhi's summer heat. In the nutshell, their engines felt under-powered and stressed.

I honestly love the Jazz and had it got a better engine, I would have certainly bought one myself. Those magic seats and the interior packaging is simply incomparable. But a couple of drives were enough for me to avoid this brilliant chassis and interior space masterpiece altogether. Honda anyways has lost its mojo and their current breed of cars are simply not worthy of their great automotive legacy.

I think Honda India is the least innovative company amongst the OEMs. The only recent innovative car they got was the BR-V, and even there, they themselves gave it poverty-level cabin-specs, while thankfully giving it the good engines. They marketed it as an SUV, when it should have competed with the Ertiga. I would have been a potential buyer had they provided a VX-CVT version with 6 airbags, for example.
Even Maruti has provided the Wagon-R with a K12. That seems more VFM than the WRV, for what it offers (style be damned).

Updated WR-V reach dealerships!

Quote:
Offered in two trims: SV and VX.
New grille, updated headlamps and redesigned alloy wheels.
Powered by BS6 petrol and diesel engine options.
Top-spec variant likely to cost Rs 13.5 lakh (on-road).
Quote:
Majority of the design updates on the facelifted WR-V are at the front. The redesigned grille and the new LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs give it an air of freshness and also add to its road presence. Diesel variants benefit from a new set of 16-inch alloy wheels while petrol variants will have to make do with the older design. New LED tail lamps are the only change at the rear.

True! I was searching for a sub-4 automatic car for my dad and we checked out all available options. we liked new WR-V and got a chance to see one in Honda service area. we were ready to wait for a month or two for delivery. While discussing the variants, the salesperson said "Only manual sir" and it was a deal breaker. We ended up purchasing Ford Ecosport.

It’s a competent car, this.

Honda Service and After sales is also one of the best.

It would be a great seller had it been provided with the 1.5 ivtec and an AT (CVT and TQ). I fail to understand why Honda doesn’t just plonk those in this and make it the perfect in the segment?

Honda is pure ignorant and full of ego.

Honda WR-V facelift has just been launched digitally in our market, with prices ranging from Rs 8.50-11.04 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Like its predecessor, the updated WR-V is available with petrol and diesel engine options, but unlike the pre-facelift model, both engine options are available in just two trim levels – SV and VX.

Honda missed a brilliant opportunity here. they should have launched Diesel CVT combo with BS6 model.

It would have been a sure hit. There is no proper Diesel Automatic Compact SUV available right now other than XUV300 AMT.

Hi,

Can anyone please share what were the BS4 prices? The price increase will give me some hint for what price increase to expect for the upcoming Jazz.
