2019 Honda WRV Specifications
The engine and transmission will not see any change. The car will be the same. The 2019 Honda WRV will continue to have two engine options and gearbox options. The engines are shared with the Honda Jazz, hatchback.
The 1.2-litre petrol engine churns about 87bhp of power and 115Nm of maximum torque. This engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission, which has undergone revision in its gear ratios. The diesel engine is the same 1.5-litre churning about 98bhp and 200Nm of maximum torque. This comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. This engine now even gets lambda sensor for the first-time. This has been done to meet the BS-IV norms.
2019 Honda WRV Interiors
The interiors of the WRV are sporty and have a black and silver color theme. The dashboard layout is also same. The instrument cluster has three dials, a speedometer, tachometer and the driver information system. The WRV is rich in terms of features. It gets keyless entry, push start and stop button, touch screen infotainment system, cruise control, dual airbags and even ABS. The cruise control and push start and stop features are available only on the diesel top-end model, VX. The infotainment system even has MirrorLink, HDMI and 2 USB and SD card slots.
The WRV is a spacious vehicle. That said the rear seat also does not recline. A 60:40 split fold also is not present. However, practicality is one of the biggest USPs of this vehicle over that of the competition. Honda aims at being the leader in this segment. Dual airbags and ABS with EBD are offered as a standard feature across all variants. The Jazz is known for the excellent knee room and head room it has and the WRV also is the same. Three adults can sit very comfortably. There is no rear AC vents in the vehicle and we feel this would have been an important feature, especially for as the interiors are spacious.
These features and interior design will continue on the 2019 Honda WRV.
2019 Honda WRV Design
The 2019 Honda WRV will not change in any way. The design language also is the same. The WRV though, is raised higher. The ground clearance is higher and it also gets body cladding all around. This makes the WRV look rugged. The WRV also gets roof rails. It comes close to the Hyundai i20 Active in design and stance, but its looks more muscular with SUV-like looks; this brings it close to the Fiat Avventura Urban Cross. The WRV has good utility and is a practical vehicle.
The 2019 Honda WRV could get some cool design upgrades in the form of some kind of body kit and new colors.
2019 Honda WRV Competition
The 2019 Honda WRV directly competes with the Hyundai i20, Fiat Avventura Urban Cross and the Toyota Etios Cross till some extent.
