New Honda WR-V could really dent sales of Brezza

New Honda WR-V

The new Honda WRV has been launched in India for a very exciting price tag of Rs. 7.75 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Production of this Jazz based crossover takes place at the company’s Tapukara plant in Rajasthan. While the car is based on the Jazz’s platform they do not share much cosmetically, which is unlike most crossovers in the segment.

2017 Honda WRV – It’s not just a beefed up Jazz

Exterior

The Honda WR-V doesn’t share much with the Jazz on its exterior. It gets an all new, aggressive front fascia with a brawny bumper and new headlights. Obligatory body cladding is provided through out, and chiselled side and completely different rear (characterised by new boot lid and bumper) can also be seen. Expect ground clearance of 200mm.

Overall we love Honda for bringing a whole new car instead of a beefed up Jazz. Its SUV-ish design is sure to impress Indian customers.
