Honda WR-V is gearing up to make its Indian debut next month and have been spotted at dealer’s yard already. Ahead of its official launch, the interior of the Jazz-based crossover has been spied.

It was speculated to carry forward the interior from the Jazz to keep the cost in check, and these spied images conforms the same. The dashboard is the same as the one in Jazz with added updates from the new City sedan. So the seven-inch centre touchscreen is larger than the one found in Jazz, the steering wheel mounted controls are present, the instrument cluster is tweaked whereas the capacitive touch climate control is available as well. The WR-V will also have a sunroof, just like the one found in City; inbuilt navigation in the infotainment system along with smartphone connectivity. The ‘magic seats’ from the Jazz, engine start-stop button and cruise control will also be a part of the package in the WR-V. The Honda WR-V diesel seen here is in the VX trim which will be the top of the line diesel variant. The fascia is dominated by aggressive headlamps with integrated DRLs, there are roof rail and chrome finished handles on the outside. The ORVM gets turn signals and the car is riding on stylish 16-inch alloy wheels.

The WR-V will also borrow the engines fitted in the Jazz. So, the petrol will be the 1.2-litre i-VTEC making 87bhp while the diesel version will get the 1.5-litre i-DTEC motor putting out 98bhp. Transmission options will include a five-speed manual and a CVT for the petrol and a six-speed manual for the diesel.

When launched in India, the WR-V will go up against the Hyundai i20 Active, Volkswagen Cross Polo, Toyota Etios Cross and the Fiat Avventura Cross as well as the compact crossovers such as Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Ford EcoSport. Expected prices for the WR-V is between Rs 5.80 – 12 lakh.
