Honda will finally launch the much-awaited WR-V facelift in the Indian market tomorrow (July 2). It was officially teased recently and was also spotted at a dealership a few weeks back. Following the WR-V, Honda will also launch the new-gen City later this month.

The Honda WR-V originally entered the Indian market in March 2017. Soon after the launch, it became an instant hit among the Honda buyers. A few times, it even overtook the Honda City to become the high-selling Honda car in the Indian market. Now, it will finally receive a mid-cycle makeover which will keep it fresh and relevant among the competition for the days to come.

It may also get a new seat upholstery. The new WR-V will also receive cruise control with a steering-mounted button, among other features such as automatic climate control, and rear AC vents. Apart from this, the new WR-V will continue to offer electric sunroof, as seen on the previous model.
