Honda WRV crosses 50,000 sales mark
Honda WR-V seems to be the next big thing for the brand. We share a detailed review
The Honda WRV has been one of the best sellers from the Japanese manufacturer. The crossover has sold more than 50,000 units, thereby becoming one of the most important products for the company. Honda WRV clocked 37,031 units last financial year and the company says that the crossover accounts for 28% of its sales. Honda WRV was conceived in India and is the first Honda product to have extensive R&D work carried out in India. This is therefore an important milestone for the company. As per Honda, 80% of the sales come for the top-of the line VX variant and only 20% were in the entry-level S variant. We have in past also pointed out that surprisingly, one of the key factors for high sales of WRV in its category has been the offering of a sunroof.
The Honda Jazz was not as big a hit as the WRV. Clearly the WRV has bettered its competition on many counts. Honda WRV is one of the best sellers in its segment which comprises of the Ford Ecosport, Maruti Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon. This is a compact SUV that is based on the Jazz and has a lot of similarity to the hatchback.
The exterior might not say that, and it looks like a totally different vehicle. The interiors are where there is a lot of similarity. This SUV is under 4 metres too. There are more features on offer too. The engines available are the 1.2-litre petrol with a five-speed manual and a 1.5-litre diesel with a six-speed manual. The Honda WRV offers a lot more features. In terms of space it is the same like the Jazz. There is no differentiating factor there. Should you consider buying this new compact SUV? Or look at something else?
Honda WRV Price in India, Features, Specifications
A good option for those who need a higher premium hatchback with good ground clearance, the Honda WRV will make more a better buy.

This vehicle will only come with the 1.3-litre diesel engine.
There are afew changes that S-Cross will be getting, howvwer, they are purely cosmetic in nature. The exteriors are upgraded mainly. This includes a new front fascia. The changes on the inside are not too many. Performance lover will now be a bit disappointed as the more powerful 1.6-litre version will not make it in the facelift.
