The latest car to join the niche cross-hatch segment is Honda’s new Jazz-based WR-V.

Dimensions

To look more like an SUV, Honda has made the WR-V taller at 1601mm. The i20 Active is wider though and boasts the maximum wheelbase here, which might indicate that it is the most spacious of them all. All three cars sport the same 16-inch alloy wheels; the Urban Cross though has the widest tyres.

Honda's newly released crosshatch, the Honda WR-V, will go up against the likes of Hyundai’s i20 Active and Fiat’s Urban Cross. It’s got a longer wheelbase and makes more power than the Jazz. So, where does it stand compared to its rivals.

Length 3999mm 3995mm 3989mm
Width 1734mm 1760mm 1706mm
Height 1601mm 1555mm 1542mm
Wheelbase 2555mm 2570mm 2510mm
Whee 195/60 R16 195/55 R16 205/55 R16

 

Engine and Transmission

The WR-V shares the same 1.2-litre iVTEC petrol and the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel as the Jazz. The Urban Cross comes with a turbocharged T-Jet engine, so it’s a slightly pricey purchase. The i20 Active is in the same umbrella as the WR-V when it comes to engine power.

Price

As far as price is concerned, the WR-V is easy the costliest. Priced between a sweet Rs. 7.75 lakh to 8.99 lakh. The car also offers new features to match the high price such as a sunroof and cruise control. The i20 Active comes in three trims, with the base and top-trim priced lower than the WR-V.
