Honda WR-V

The crossover segment is currently one of the most popular and fastest growing segments of the South African new car market and finding your most affordable crossover is a simple process thanks to the user friendly website. The Honda WR-V ticks all the crossover boxes at a very affordable price point.

If you are looking to purchase a compact crossover on a budget, the Honda WR-V is a great option compared to many of the other mainstream models in this category as it strikes a good balance between style, practicality and affordability. The WR-V takes inspiration from popular models like the Jazz and BR-V, resulting in a unique vehicle that exudes a trendy, exciting personality.

The WR-V is sure to appeal to a new range of customers in the compact SUV category while retaining all of Honda’s proven attributes in terms of unrivalled quality, durability and reliability.

The Honda WR-V sports a modern and dynamic design with a bold front grille and sleek headlight styling up front linked to the raised stance and rugged appeal expected of a SUV. The pronounced wheel arches finished with protective cladding ensure a rugged appearance, while the elevated ride height adds practicality when negotiating rougher roads.

Tidy rear end treatment is dominated by large C-shape LED taillight clusters, a tailgate that opens all the way down to bumper level for effortless loading and rear trim finished in contrasting charcoal.

A raised stance and wide track further reflect the rugged attitude typical of an SUV while the striking 16-inch alloy wheels and slim roof rails add a classy touch.

Surprisingly spacious

Generous glass areas create an airy, inviting impression that emphasises the spaciousness of the cabin and ensures that all occupants enjoy superb all-round visibility.

Despite its compact size, the clever design of the WR-V ensures ample leg and head room for both front and rear occupants and can comfortably seat five passengers. The upholstery consists of high-quality black fabric, providing the perfect balance of comfort, support and durability.

 The boot size is very decent at 363 litres, while the rear seats offer a versatile 40/60 split folding feature, allowing for increased loading capacity to 881 litres when needed.

The WR-V also incorporates Honda’s ingenious Magic Seat system that can be configured in several different ways to accommodate a variety of tall and long objects inside the cabin.

The tech-savvy WR-V boasts an abundance of safety convenience and connectivity features across the two-model range, which results in an exceptionally comfortable and enjoyable driving experience.

As expected from Honda, the overall feeling of quality inside the cabin is excellent for a vehicle at this price point. Buyers will enjoy the multi-function steering wheel, climate control, USB charging ports, attractive cloth upholstery and rear parking camera features.

Driving experience

The Honda WR-V is powered by a 1.2-litre, 16-valve engine that offers 66kW and 110Nm and ensures adequate motivation for daily commuting and city driving. All derivatives utilise a five-speed manual gearbox. Fuel efficiency is one of the WR-V’s strengths as the HR-V will use just 6,4 litres per 100km making it a cost-effective choice for budget conscious buyers.

The WR-V is fitted with a variety of safety features including six SRS airbags, including dual front, side impact and side curtain airbags, seatbelt pretensioners, Isofix and ABS with EBD.


The Honda WR-V is a smart choice for those motorists seeking to buy a budget-friendly crossover with pre-owned models available from R209 899. The WR-V offers a stylish design with spacious and practical interior, excellent build quality and legendary Honda reliability that should ensure that it remains a trusted companion for many years to come.

The Honda WR-V comes standard with Honda’s five-year/200 000km warranty and a four-year/60 000km service plan, which is transferrable should the vehicle be sold during that time period.
