Honda WRV vs Toyota Etios Cross Comparison – Verdict

Here’s what we feel about how these two vehicles compare on different aspects-

Price: The Etios Cross is a lot cheaper than the WRV. In WRV’s defence, however, we must add that the Honda is offering more features and more power (Diesel) and mileage.

Specifications: The Petrol WRV is slightly less powerful than the Etios Cross Petrol. However, its Diesel sibling is more powerful than the Diesel Etios Cross.

Mileage: The WRV is the clear winner here.

Features: The WRV offers more features. However, it’s is significantly pricier too.

Verdict- The WRV is significantly pricier than the Etios Cross. But it does offer a longer features list, a more powerful Diesel engine and higher mileage. In our view, the WRV will be a better option among these two if budget permits. However, bear in mind, Toyota’s after sales and reliablity is way ahead of Honda in India.
