Honda has revealed the India-bound WR-V at the 2016 Sao Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil. The compact SUV is based on the Jazz hatchback's platform and the name WR-V stands for 'Winsome
Runabout Vehicle'. The WR-V's sketch was released earlier on the internet and the showcased model isn't too different. It is expected that Honda might launch the WR-V in India later next year. The company will commence the sales of WR-V in the first half of 2017 in Brazil.

The India bound WR-V might get the 1.2 L petrol and 1.5 L diesel engine options mated to a 5-speed manual or 6-speed manual transmission. In terms of design, Honda WR-V gets a chrome grille, new headlamp cluster, and a tweaked bonnet at the front . The SUV gets a black cladding on the doors and silver skid plates on the bumpers. Along with this the SUV also gets alloy wheels and a higher ground clearance. Inside the cabin, the WR-V will share the same dashboard design and components with the Jazz hatchback.

When launched on the Indian soil, Honda WR-V will compete with the likes of Vitara Brezza and Ford Ecosport as it will be positioned as a compact SUV/ crossover.
