Honda Jazz or Honda WR-V. Which one to buy? 19 Jul 2018 02:44 #257

The Honda Jazz has more popularity than the Honda WR-V owing to just one factor, that is, it is a premium offering in its segment. It has more or less similar specifications but it has had a lot of time in the market.

The Honda WR-V, a subcompact crossover, is modelled on the Jazz hatchback, but looks a lot sportier and was launched just over a year back. And though they have similar features and numbers, it is very important to see which of the two would be better for you to buy.

For the specification of the Honda Jazz, you can visit

The exterior part of the Honda Jazz gives a sporty look and is probably the biggest hatchback. It looks premium on the outset and sport sleek headlamps and LED tail lamps. It has 15-inch alloy wheels for the top trims and a ground clearance of 165 mm.

The exterior body of the new WR-V is marked by a sharp and high bonnet and a chiselled design. It has bigger 16-inch alloy wheel size and a higher ground clearance of 188 mm. Hence, when it comes to exterior, the WR-V the way to go.

Both the cars have similar cabin space since the length and wheelbase are similar. However, considering that the Jazz is a hatchback, the cabin is more premium and roomy than any other car in the segment.

However, for the WR-V, since it belongs to a bigger segment, the cabin is not very spacious compared to the other cars in the subcompact segment.

Honda Jazz has 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine which produces 89 PS of power and makes of 110 Nm of torque. The bigger 1.5-litre diesel engine can make a better 98 bhp of power and 200 Nm of torque.

However, the WR-V, despite being a small SUV, is powered by the same engine setup. Hence, the 89 bhp (petrol and 99 bhp (diesel) appear to be too low compared to other cars like the Ford EcoSport.

Key Features
Among the amazing key features of the Honda Jazz is the cabin space, which matches with any of the sedans above its class. However, for the Honda WR-V, the 7-inch touchscreen, first-in-class one-touch sunroof and Mirrorlink for smartphone connection appear to be the key features.

Honda Jazz and WR-V have similar specifications, on almost all the fronts, be it the power or the safety. However, the addition of a sunroof brings a very important change up front.

However, let’s not forget that the Jazz is around Rs. 2 lakhs more affordable than the WR-V, which is the decisive factor. Hence, it would always be wise to choose it over the crossover as the number of features is similar but at a much smaller price tag.
