It is the ideal companion for young adults and families seeking a Small SUV that complements their active lifestyle with its vibrant and bold personality.”

The All-New WR-V will be available in an RS variant, which includes a newly designed RS emblem, unique Front Grille, and 17″ Dual-Tone Alloy Wheels. Its sleek and sporty look is further accentuated by coupé-style rear door handles, adding an edgy stylishness to the overall design.

In terms of technology and safety, the WR-V comes equipped with features such as Power Retractable Door Mirrors, Auto LED Headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), LED Front Fog Lights, and LED Sequential Turn Signals. The vehicle also includes Honda SENSING, an advanced safety technology offering eight safety functions, including Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

The All-New WR-V is powered by a 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC engine, delivering a maximum power of 121PS and a maximum torque of 145Nm. The integration of Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) with G-design shift technology ensures a perfect balance between fuel economy and driving performance.
