2018 Honda WR-V Edge edition launched

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


Honda has introduced a new special edition trim of its WR-V crossover – badged as the Edge Edition – with price tags of Rs 8.01 lakh for the petrol engine and Rs 9.01 lakh for the diesel (ex-showroom, Delhi). This new mid-spec trim is based on the S variant; but gets more equipment.
On the outside, the major change is the addition of new five-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels – although a premium white paint finish is also available for an additional Rs 4,000. Inside, the Edge Edition also gets back parking sensors and a rear-view camera display integrated into the inside rear-view mirror.

Honda has also provided its own Connect app in the car, as standard. Mechanically, there is no difference between the Edge Edition and the standard model. Both cars have the same 90hp, 1.2-litre petrol and 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engines mated to a 5-speed manual gear transmission. The WR-V Edge Edition is more than Rs 20,000 dearer than the base S trim and nearly Rs 1 lakh less than the top-spec VX variant. Before the end of 2018, the Japanese automaker plans to carry 2 cars to India – the next-gen CR-V SUV (which features a seven-seat configuration) and the second-gen Honda Amaze compact sedan(displayed at the 2018 Auto Expo).
