For the unaware, the next-gen WR-V compact SUV will be introduced before the end of this year.

It was at 2021 GIIAS that Honda had showcased the RS SUV Concept. The production model has much much-toned down design as against the concept model.

As per the revelations from the leaked images, the new Honda WR-V 2023 model will come with a more conventional front grille with chrome studded RS treatment that’s similar to the new HR-V RS.

On top of the grille will be a chrome bar and the headlamp design has also been completely changed and it appears larger than the sharp looking units of the 2021 concept.

The lower bumper accommodates fog lamps, silver skid plate-style trim with three notches, and wider air-dam.

At the back, there is an all-new design. The concept model had a steep, raked screen and full-width LED signatures. The production model has more conventional angles and tail-lamp clusters. Other design highlights include a roof-integrated spoiler, a 3D-style taillights with inverted L-shaped LED signatures and silver trim on the diffuser area.

Expected to be plonked with a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine that produces 121PS and 145Nm of torque, the car will have a 6-speed manual and a CVT automatic as transmission option. This is the same powertrain that powers the City sedan.
