    2023 Honda WR-V

    The 2023 Honda WR-V variants share the same dimensions when it comes to length and width, measuring 4,060 mm and 1,780 mm, respectively. However, their height varies across the different models. The base-spec S variant stands at 1,576 mm, while the E, V, and RS variants measure 1,608 mm in height. 

    The wheelbase remains consistent at 2,485 mm, providing a stable and comfortable ride, while the ground clearance measures 220 mm, ensuring the ability to tackle various terrains with ease. Also, all variants offer a spacious 380-litre boot space. 

    It's worth noting that despite their shared dimensions, the curb weight differs among the four variants. This diversity adds to the lineup's versatility, allowing customers to choose one that aligns with their desired balance of performance and efficiency.

    Engine

    In terms of mechanical setup, all the variants of the Honda WR-V are identical. All are powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder naturally-aspirated DOHC i-VTEC engine that produces a maximum power of 121 PS at 6,600 rpm and a peak torque of 145 Nm at 2,300 rpm. The power is sent to the front wheels via a CVT automatic gearbox. 

    However, when it comes to performance, we can observe a slight difference due to the variation in curb weights.
