2020 Honda WR-V facelift launched: Price
It was a bit of a wait, but the Honda WR-V facelift has just been digitally launched in our market, with prices ranging from Rs 8.50-10.99 lakh ( ex-showroom, Delhi). Since the coronavirus pandemic, the launch of the 2020 WR-V facelift has been substantially postponed. The revised WR-V is available, like its predecessor, with petrol and diesel engine choices, but unlike the pre-facelift model, all engine options are available in only two trim levels – SV and VX.
While the petrol version of SV has priced at Rs 8.50 lakh, the petrol version of VX is priced at Rs 9.70 lakh and the diesel version of SV is priced at Rs 9.80 lakh, the diesel version of VX is priced at Rs10.99 lakh.
Honda has made quite a few visual improvements that help freshen the product. The more pronounced creases on the front bumper, a new grille with horizontal slats, and new LED projector headlights along with LED taillights are among those updates. There are also new 16-inch alloy wheels-the the petrol edition gets Berlina Black 4-hole wheels while the diesel model gets Shark Grey 5-hole units. The roof rails and LED DRLs are what was brought over from the pre-facelift case.
Honda provides six outdoor paint options for the revised WR-V-Premium Amber Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Golden Brown Metallic, Platinum White Pearl, and Radiant Red Metallic.
As we had previously mentioned, there aren’t many improvements in the features on offer with this facelift. The most prominent variations are the revised designs of the fabric and cabin upholstery. Nevertheless, the 2020 Honda WR-V comes at both trim levels with a decent amount of accessories.
The entry-level 2020 Honda WR-V SV comes with dual front airbags, a rear defogger, a rear parking camera, 16-inch alloy wheels, projector headlights, LED DRLs, driver seat height adjustment, power-folding, and customizable ORVMs, power windows, automatic climate control, 7.0-inch Digipad 2.0 touchscreen infotainment display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and SD card navigation.
The top-spec WR-V VX offers features such as a rear wiper, LED headlights, taillights and fog lights, front center armrest, cruise control, keyless entry, and exit, a leather-wrapped steering, and a powered sunroof.
The engine options are identical to the pre-facelift model with barring updates to make them BS6-compliant. The petrol engine is the 1.2-liter model that produces a torque of 90hp and 110Nm, and the diesel option is the 1.5-liter diesel model that allows torque of 100hp and 200Nm.
The 1.2-liter petrol engine comes with a 5-speed manual unit as regards gearboxes, while the 1.5-liter diesel mill receives a 6-speed manual as standard fit. However, Honda does not sell a WR-V facelift automatic transmission. In diesel-manual mode, the 2020 Honda WR-V has a 23.7kpl ARAI-rated mileage, while the petrol manual will go 16.5 km per liter.
The 2020 Honda WR-V competes with offerings from the compact SUV market, such as the Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, and Ford EcoSport, despite its size and price. Also, Honda provides the regular WR-V facelift with a 3-year / unlimited kilometer warranty to provide its customers with the tranquility of mind.
