While many panels come from the Jazz, the WRV gets a new set of bumpers, new front grille, new headlamps, new taillights, a scuff plate and plastic body cladding. Unlike the Volkswagen Cross Polo, the new Honda WRV is more than just a mere cosmetic update. It gets a higher ground clearance and even a longer wheelbase.
At the front, the WRV has a slight resemblance to the HRV. The front-end looks aggressive and impart a touch of ruggedness to the car. The new grille and the refreshed bumper together make the car look really handosme. The body cladding and the new design alloys are highlights of the Honda WRV’s side profile.

Honda WRV Review – Interior Design
On the inside, the new Honda WRV looks almost the same as the Jazz. You get the same dashboard, which boasts clean surfaces and plenty of cubby holes. Also, you get a similarly spacious cabin. The extended wheelbase further frees up some space inside. Even most other bits, like the steering wheel, instrument cluster, AC controls, etc. come from the Jazz.
Honda WRV Engine & Transmission

Also, the Indian model misses out on a CVT option for the Petrol variant. The Brazil spec WRV 1.5 Petrol offers 118 PS and 150 Nm. The India-spec WRV petrol outputs 90 PS and 110 Nm. The Diesel engine, on the other hand, offers 100 PS and 200 Nm. The Petrol engine gets a 5 Speed Manual Transmission, while the Diesel engine comes with a 6-speed manual.
Obviously, the price of the WRV will play a major role in determining its success. So stay tuned for more on the Honda WRV Price in India, Specs, Features, Images, Review.
