2023 Honda WR-V – spec-by-spec comparison of S, E, V and RS Malaysian variants; from RM90k to RM108k

0

Launched yesterday, the 2023 Honda WR-V goes on sale in Malaysia in four variant forms, starting with the base 1.5L S (RM89,900), followed by the 1.5L E (RM95,900) and 1.5L V (RM99,900). The range is completed by the flagship 1.5L RS, which goes for RM107,900.

Earlier this week, Honda Malaysia said that it has received around 2,500 bookings for the brand’s smallest SUV up to the point of introduction, and during the launch said it is aiming to shift 1,300 units of the A-segment/small B-segment offering every month.

All WR-V variants are powered by the same engine, in this case a L15ZF 1.5 litre naturally-aspirated DOHC i-VTEC unit offering 121 PS at 6,600 rpm and a maximum torque of 145 Nm at 4,300 rpm. The mill is the same unit as found in the City and base HR-V S variant, and like in those models, is paired with a CVT here.

Standard fit equipment across all variants includes two front USB ports, a multi-angle reverse camera, power retractable door mirrors and two rear parking sensors. Also common to all versions are a seven-inch Digital Audio touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and the automaker’s LaneWatch side camera system.

Kit-wise, the entry-level S features halogen headlamps (without an auto feature), black fabric upholstery, digital air-conditioning, a two-speaker audio system and a MID display as part of its instrument cluster, among other things. It, along with the E and V grades, ride on 16-inch five-spoke silver alloys wrapped with 215/60 Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance tyres.

The E adds on auto headlights as well as remote engine start, walk-away auto lock, cruise control and a 4.2-inch TFT coloured multi-info display for the instrument cluster. It also bumps up the speaker count by two to bring the total to four.

As for the V, it adds on LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED front fog lamps and LED front turn indicators to the exterior equipment, while the interior adds on a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a switch to leather/fabric combination upholstery with blue contrast stitching. Also finding its way on is a single-zone automatic climate control system and a rear centre armrest.

The top-of-the-line RS adds on exterior kit such as a variant-specific chrome chequered grille and a switch to larger 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, which are shod with 215/55 Continental UC6 tyres. Inside, the variant gets black headliner and red accent trim as well as red contrast stitching on its leather/fabric combi seats and steering wheel.

Other items unique to the RS are LED sequential turn signals, a Honda Connect telematics system, paddle shifters, alloy pedals, red needles for the speedometer/tachometer (white on the other variants) and two extra speakers to make for a six-speaker audio set-up.

Only the RS and V grades were displayed at the launch, but we’re in the process of getting galleries of the E and S variants, and will run them as gallery posts when we have photos of each. In the meantime, below is a detailed list of the specifications available on each WR-V variant, as well as a first-look walk-around video of the SUV from the launch.
