Under the hood is a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine, one that power Honda City in India. It is capable of churning out 121 PS of maximum power and 145 Nm of peak torque. It is about 30 PS more powerful than the India-spec model and has 35 Nm of more torque. The engine comes mated to a CVT transmission. Unlike India, Honda is not offering any diesel engine for the new generation WR-V.

Honda has packed the new WR-V with several safety features. These include six airbags, ABS with EBD, pretensioner seat belts among others. The Japanese carmaker has also included Honda Sensing in the new WR-V. It offers a suite of safety assist technologies including automatic emergency braking and lane support as well as assisted highway driving systems like adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams. The new WR-V also offers features like Lane Keep Assist, Collision Mitigation Braking System and Road Departure Mitigation System among a few more.

The new WR-V also offers remote functioning that includes locking or unlocking the car without using key. It also offers auto cooling function once the car is started remotely.

Honda is currently evaluating prospects of launching the new WR-V in India. When launched, it will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Tata Nexon and Hyundai Venue among other sub-compact SUVs.
