Honda has revealed the WR-V after teasing the public with the design sketch just last month. The WR-V made its debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil.
The WR-V stands for "Winsome Runabout Vehicle." Up front, it is fitted with Honda’s Solid Wing Face (as seen on the grille), aggressive-looking headlights, and large bumper. The lines and edges along its sides look similar to the design sketch previewed by Honda. The rear, on the other hand, has L-shaped wraparound headlights.
Honda claims that the WR-V features outstanding fuel economy and stable handling performance. Of note, the vehicle is said to be developed basing from the research results about customer needs in South America.
However, the Japanese automaker has yet to reveal the interior and powertrain details of the WR-V.
As of this writing, Honda plans to sell the WR-V in South America, with its market introduction scheduled in the first half of 2017 in Brazil. There are still no clear reports as to when or if the WR-V would be sold globally.
