Ford EcoSport Rivaling Honda WR-V Official Sketch Launched in Brazil

Honda Cars Brazil has released the first official sketches of the WR-V subcompact SUV, ahead of its public debut at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show in November this year.

Ford EcoSport rival, the WR-V is based on the Jazz platform that also underpins the City sedan and will be restricted under the 4-metre mark. What also makes the model extremely interesting is the fact that the WR-V will make it to India as well to take on a host of sub 4-metre SUVs and crossover models.
The WR-V crossover has been developed by the R&D team of Honda Cars Brazil. While the Jazz influence is evident, the front gets a more aggressive looking design with the muscular lines on the bonnet, large lower grille, and the chunky bar that holds the big 'H', similar to that seen on the City and Jazz. You can also see the accentuated wheel arches, roof rails and alloy wheels making for a muscular appearance, while the tail light shows a glimpse from the sides, and could be the boomerang shaped ones, similar that seen on the Jazz.
The Honda WR-V will be replacing the Fit Twist, which is the crossover version of the Jazz in South America, while most of the other markets including India will be receiving it as an all-new model. The Brazilian spec version is expected to carry the same 1.5-liter flex-fuel engine that also powers the Jazz hatchback and will come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and CVT automatic options.
On the India spec model though, Honda Cars India will power the WR-V subcompact SUV using the 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine options, also seen on the new Jazz. We do not expect much change in the power output though. Expect to see a healthy amount of features borrowed from the Jazz and City siblings.
