Thank you to Team-BHP fan Bijoy B S for sending these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing them with other enthusiasts!

Honda appears to have started shipping the WR-V compact crossover to its dealerships, ahead of its official launch in the coming months. A white WR-V has been spotted at a dealer stockyard in Trivandrum, Kerala.

The spotted model is in the VX trim, which is expected to be the top-end variant in the WR-V line-up. Exterior design elements visible in the images include circular fog lamps, new headlight assemblies which are expected to get LED DRLs, faux skid plates on the front and rear bumpers, turn indicators integrated in the ORVMs, silver roof rails, chrome door handles, diamond cut alloy wheels and revised tail lights. The tailgate mounted number plate housing gets a chrome appliqué above it.

The interiors are similar to that of the Jazz hatchback, however the WR-V appears to have borrowed the infotainment system from the new City. Slightly revised seat upholstery and a new gear lever appear to be the other changes made in the WR-V's cabin. It is also worth noting that there is no start/stop button on offer.

As per some media reports, Honda is expected to launch the WR-V in India on March 16, 2017.
