2019 Honda WR-V BS4 Diesel Variant - Dimension Comparison

All cars in the sub-4m SUV segment are equally long. However, Honda WRV is the narrowest. A narrow body limits shoulder room for rear occupants. It does make up for that by offering a respectable wheelbase of 2555mm. A longer wheelbase typically results in better legroom. It also has a decent 188mm ground clearance. But where it once again shines is in boot space. It has the best-in-class boot capacity of 363 litres.

Like most Honda cars, the S variant of the WR-V gets a  lot of features to take off the ‘base variant’ sticker off its back. The standard safety features include 2 front airbags, ABS, parking sensors, rear windshield defogger and day/night mirror. The functional feature list includes remote central locking, tilt and telescopic steering, height-adjustable driver seat, automatic AC, all four power windows and electrically-adjustable outside mirrors. A set of 16-inch alloy wheels, LED DRLs, body-coloured door handles, outside mirrors and bumpers take care of the style aspect while a 4-speaker music system with Bluetooth and USB handle the entertainment duties.

2019 Honda WR-V BS4 V Variant - Better To Consider VX Variant

The V variant of the WR-V, which is only available with a diesel engine, adds enough features to be called the top variant. It gets 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, rear washer and wiper, keyless entry with push-button start-stop, front armrest, cruise control and electrically-folding outside mirrors. For an incremental increase in the price of Rs. 70,000, it’s a fair value considering that it only leaves out some nice-to-have style elements. Go for it if you don’t care about a sunroof.

2019 Honda WR-V BS4 VX Variant - Top Recommended

Adding another Rs. 40,000 to the ex-showroom price of the V variant gives you an electric sunroof and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. That price increase is totally justifiable and therefore, this is our top recommended and the most value-for-money variant of the Honda WRV diesel.

2019 Honda WR-V BS4 Best Variant - VX

The S and V variant, both offer a respectable number of features. But the VX variant steals the show with just 1 big-ticket item (sunroof) for a reasonable sum of Rs. 40,000. That’s because you can’t even get an aftermarket electric sunroof for this price.
