    2020 Honda WR-V Facelift - All We Know So Far About Upcoming B2 Segment Crossover/SUV

    by Mahesh Yadav on Wednesday, Jun 10 2020

    Honda opened bookings for the 2020 WR-V facelift some time back. Now, let’s see what it might offer in terms of features and engine specs.

     

    2020 Honda WR-V Facelift Features

    Let’s first start with the notable features of the upcoming 2020 WR-V facelift:

    • Redesigned front and rear bumpers
    • LED DRLs
    • LED projector headlamps
    • LED tail lamps
    • 7-inch touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple Carplay
    • Electric sunroof
    • Cruise control
    • Automatic AC
    • Keyless entry with push-button start/stop
    • Electrically-adjustable and foldable outside mirrors

    LED DRLs

    Earlier, the cruise control and keyless entry were only available with the diesel engine. Let’s hope these features make it to the petrol WR-V as well with the 2020 facelift update. Besides, the touchscreen infotainment will gain the Android Auto and Apple Carplay connectivity feature, which the Honda City also got late in 2019. The older WRV didn’t have these native Android and iOS connectivity options.

    Other new features of the 2020 Honda WRV facelift are LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs and LED tail lamps.

    Just like before, the Honda WR-V facelift is likely to continue without an automatic transmission despite a growing demand for the same.

    2020 Honda WR-V Facelift Dimensions

    Since this is a facelift and not a generation change, the WR-V will retain its dimensions but may undergo minor changes here and there. Here are the dimensions of the 2020 Honda WR-V:

    Dimensions

    Honda WR-V

    The Honda WR-V’s boot space of 363 litres is the biggest among other B2 segment crossovers/SUVs. Its ground clearance of 188mm is acceptable for a crossover of this class.

    The Honda WR-V competes with B2 segment SUVs and crossovers like Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, Ford Freestyle, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon.

    Kia Sonet and Brezza-based Toyota Urban Cruiser are 2 new contenders, which are likely to soon join the segment to compete with the Honda WR-V.
