2016 Honda WR-V (Jazz Crossover) official teaser – India launch in 2017


Honda Car India has confirmed to Rushlane that the next vehicle they launch in the country will be an SUV.

Spy shots of 2016 Honda Jazz Twist (called as Fit Twist in Brazil) soft crossover have been circulating online for quite few months. Ending the suspense, Honda Brazil has now revealed the first official teaser of the upcoming Jazz based crossover, which is believed to be christened as Honda WR-V upon launch.

The Jazz Twist is essentially a hatchback with rough road ensembles. New Jazz Twist variant of the previous gen hatchback was exclusive to the Brazilian market but given that the word crossover has gained traction throughout the world now, Honda could be considering to introduce the latest Jazz Twist in more international markets.

The soft crossover based on the new gen Jazz hatchback will feature a rugged looking bumper, black underbody cladding, larger alloy wheels, roof rails, skid plates at both ends and so on. It could possibly get a slightly raised ride height to justify the crossover tag.

The interior is most likely to be derived from the hatchback without any changes but one can expect a few additional equipment and an exclusive color theme. Powertrain lineup too would be carried forward from the Jazz as it is.

In Brazil, the Honda Jazz Twist (Fit Twist) will pickup a fight against the likes of Hyundai HB20X. It remains to be seen if Honda Car India has plans to introduce a similar derivative in India to take on the VW Cross Polo, Fiat Avventura, Hyundai i20 Active and Toyota Etios Cross.

Interestingly, on the sidelines of the ongoing Honda Accord Hybrid media drive in Hyderabad, Honda Car India officials have confirmed to Rushlane that the next launch from them will be an SUV. Plot thickens?
