Apart from the revamped exterior looks, the most prominent update the car is bound to receive is its BS 6 compliant 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines. The gasoline sipping power plant produces 90 PS of power at 6,000 rpm and 110 Nm of peak torque at 4,800 rpm. The oil burner produces 100 PS of power at 3,600 rpm and 200 Nm of peak torque at 1,750 rpm.
The transmission option will include the same 5-speed manual gearbox unit. As per the recently leaked information, the new cross-hatch has been rated to deliver fuel-efficiency of 16.5 kmpl (petrol) and 23.7 kmpl (diesel).
The Honda WR-V doesn't have a direct cross-hatch of its size/price bracket in India. Some of the cars which competes against it include the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, and the Ford EcoSport.
