Honda has started booking the Facelift WR-V. Interested customers can book this car at the company’s dealership for Rs 21,000. The new WR-V features cosmetic and feature updates. The biggest change has been in its engine.
The 2020 WR-V facelift will get Honda Amaze BS6 petrol and diesel engines.
Its petrol variant will get a 1.2 liter BS6 engine, which will generate 90 PS of power and 110 Nm of torque. The diesel variant will get a 1.5 liter BS6 engine, its power will be 100 PS and torque will be 200 Nm. The current WR-V features a 5-speed manual with a petrol engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox with a diesel engine. There are speculations that the company may also offer a CVT gearbox with engine in the facelift WR-V. Honda’s Amaze sedan also has a choice of manual and CVT gearboxes with these engines.
The feature list of the 2020 Honda WR-V facelift will be almost the same as before, though some changes have also been made to it. It has new LED headlamps, day-time running lights, LED fog lamps and LED tail lamps. Also features like dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensor, auto AC, push button start, sunroof, 7.0 inch touchscreen infotainment system (with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity) as before. Huh.
