Apart from updating the feature list on the S & VX trims, Honda has added a new, mid-level 'V' variant to the WR-V's diesel line-up.
Honda has decided to spruce up its compact crossover, the WR-V, by updating it with some latest features. While doing so, Honda has also added a new 'V' variant to the WR-V's diesel line-up, which it claims offers a decent number of premium features at a lower cost. While the top-spec 1.5L i-DTEC VX MT is priced at ₹ 10.35 lakh, the new 1.5L i-DTEC V MT has been priced at ₹ 9.95 lakh (All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). However, the move clearly seems to be a strategy to promote the sales of the car's diesel derivatives.
Coming to the new trim, customers opting for the V variant will get to enjoy premium features like LED DRLs & position lamps, front fog lamps, turn indicator-integrated ORVMs, gunmetal finish 16-inch alloys, chrome door handles & a micro antenna for the radio. Compared to the top-spec diesel VX, the V variant misses out on an electric sunroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a retractable key (available only with petrol VX, though). Remaining features like the 17.7cm touchscreen infotainment system, steering-mounted controls, cruise control, auto climate control, one push start/stop, etc. are also present in the V variant.
As for the equipment upgrades on the existing S and VX trims, the S trim now comes equipped with 16-inch gunmetal alloy wheels, auto climate control, fog lamps, speed-sensing auto door lock, retractable key, one-touch window operation & the now-mandatory safety features like rear parking sensors, front passenger seat belt reminder & a high speed warning alert. The safety features, along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, speed-sensing auto door lock & vanity mirrors for both front passengers comprise the updated features list on the VX trim.
The new features will be available with both petrol & diesel engine options.
