Honda is one of the few car manufacturers in the world that the same thing will make a stately saloon and a flirty urban. In between we can talk about its excellent off-road and SUV that no longer appear in your range. The last member of this type of cars hits the mark is the small WR-V. This SUV B-segment is especially designed and focused to consumers of emerging markets such as brazil.
Precisely in the Hall of the Automobile of São Paulo, which is held these days has been presented in an official manner. I already brought it in a few days the first sketches of his design, but now we can see it as it will hit the streets of the country carioca. It is a model which will replace the current Honda Fit Twist, a variant crossover-type of the Fit of the previous generation.
If we focus on its design, the Honda WR-V, it seems to be in its front to its brother the Honda Civic, however, its front part is the more ornate of chrome elements. Your back has a very deep to your brother city the Honda Fit and with these protections in black plastic looks very campero. The set is finished off by the rear diffuser in the color silver and the roof rails in chrome.
The new Honda WR-V sits on the same platform that gives life to the current Honda Fit. In addition, both models also share the chassis also share the same engine offerings. In the brazilian market both models mount the same block gasoline 1.5-liter displacement and 115 HP of power. This mechanism can be combined with a manual change of five speeds or an automatic CVT.
With this model Honda seeks to offer its customers an alternative to SUVS that are set for a price under the current HR-V. In addition, this model will not only be sold in Brazil, but will also be distributed through the rest of the markets that make up the MERCOSUR. The main rivals that you will have to be measured are the Renault Sandero Stepway, Toyota Etios Cross and Volkswagen CrossFox and some versions even most simple of the Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster.
By now the mark has not communicated if it could reach more markets or only be limited to that region of the globe. And they wouldn’t have announced the price on the that will be for sale.
