If you are one for an active, bustling and busy lifestyle, then you need a car that can meet your expectations as well. It should feel perfectly at home whether it’s in the urban jungle or long journeys or when you are ferrying a bunch of friends. The Honda WR-V is the car that suits all these needs perfectly.

 

Active Design

One look at the Honda WR-V and you know it is a vehicle that is stylish, packed with possibilities, & built to last. It’s the perfect example of form meeting function.

It gets Honda’s solid wing chrome grille up front which is flanked by sleek side-swept headlamps coupled with LED DRLs and bumper-integrated fog lamps. The front bumper gets added protection with silver skid plates that not only looks good, but is functional as well. The WR-V’s Smart Compact Exteriors are replete with sharp, angular lines that complement its muscular yet classy design.

The Honda WR-V’s side profile makes its action-oriented purpose clear when you see the classy silver roof rails and side cladding over the wheel wells and side skirts. The black protective cladding not only accentuates the WR-V’s off-road cred, but also prevents those minor damages that are a part and parcel of driving in our congested cities.

The tastefully designed 16-inch gunmetal finish alloy wheels add just the right amount of bling to the SUV. At the rear, the Honda WR-V gets L-shaped split tail lights and a lip spoiler with LED stop lamp. The Honda WR-V not only looks action packed but can let you script your own adventure story, thanks to its healthy ground clearance that ensures smooth sailing over bad roads or no roads or even up the mountain roads - no questions asked.

Spacious Interiors

Hop inside the spacious cabin of the Honda WR-V and you are greeted with a sense of excitement that will make you want to take the longer route home. Built on Honda’s Man Maximum, Machine Minimum philosophy, the WR-V offers an ergonomically sorted interior. When it comes to space, the WR-V is good enough to seat your closest friends while accommodating their luggage, so you don’t have to leave out anything on that road trip.

The WR-V’s huge 363-litre boot offers the best luggage capacity in the segment. What’s more, you can prep it for your next outdoor adventure with the added utility of fold-flat rear seats. This helps move not just your luggage, but also camping equipment, golf bags and then some.

Another thoughtful feature on the WR-V comes in the form of the one-touch electric sunroof so that occupants can enjoy the beautiful weather from the comfort of the cosy and plush cabin.  

Loaded with technology & Interactivity

We are moving towards a connected tomorrow, and why shouldn’t our cars offer the same too? Well, the WR-V does. It packs Honda’s 7-inch Digipad 2.0 touchscreen which comes with MirrorLink connectivity that helps you stay away from your smartphone for a safer drive while staying connected to your loved ones. The Digipad 2.0, with its smooth and snappy interface, lets you access satellite-linked navigation, audio and video files and make calls. You can use the voice command to execute any of the above functions. The WR-V even lets you access the internet through Wi-Fi.

The Honda WR-V comes with an advanced multi-information combimeter instrument console which features an EcoAssist Meter. Not only does it look sporty with its in-built ambient rings but also helps you drive with maximum efficiency. The convenience factor is enhanced by the piano finished climate control console, tilt and telescopic steering wheel along with keyless entry system powered by Honda Smart Key.

Safety

The Honda WR-V is based on a rock solid ACE body structure that offers high rigidity to keep you and your loved ones safe. It’s further backed by an extensive pack of safety features like dual airbags, ABS with EBD, impact mitigating headrests and intelligent pedals. A multi-view rear parking camera with three display modes ensures that you have an unhindered vision and complete control over your surroundings no matter how dark or tight the parking space is.

Powerful, Efficient and Clean

Performance would be nothing without efficiency and Honda knows this very well. That is why the Honda WR-V comes with an active set of petrol and diesel engine that maximise power without compromising on the efficiency. The 1.5-litre Earth Dreams is much cleaner than a regular diesel engine and produces 100PS of power and a healthy 200Nm of torque, making the WR-V the perfect mile muncher on the highway. The petrol motor, on the other hand, churns out 90PS and 110Nm of torque which works excellently for city commutes. Despite being a performance package, these engines don’t skimp on fuel efficiency as the diesel delivers 25.5 kmpl and the petrol returns 17.5 kmpl.

 

Takeaway

The Honda WR-V strikes the perfect balance of suave looks, sharp lines and go-anywhere capability that makes it ready to tackle anything. And then you have the youthful, spacious, feature-loaded interiors to serve your active urban lifestyle. The powerful, clean and efficient engines along with safety technologies make sure that the WR-V is a package that appeals not only to the heart but the mind as well. The Honda WR-V makes sure that the heads turn wherever it goes.
