Compare Honda WR-V Vs Fiat Avventura Vs Hyundai i20 Active

Compare Honda WR-V Vs Fiat Avventura Vs Hyundai i20 Active

Snapshot: The Honda WR-V is based on the Jazz, but Honda has yet managed to give the car an all new face with a set of new features. We put it up against the competitors and see how it compares.

The new kid on the block, Honda WR-V locks horns with the other crossovers in this segment. While crossover segment has enjoyed limited success in India, and most cars in this segment are considered a result of after thought. It may all change with the Honda WR-V which is much more than just a nip-and-tuck job. ​

Design and Exteriors

Honda went back to the drawing board and gave the Jazz a full makeover. The result is a car that sits not only higher off the ground (the approach used by others), but also has a 25mm longer wheelbase. The Avventura offers the best ground clearance of the lot at 205mm, followed by i20 Active and WR-V that offer 190mm and 188mm respectively. While all cars use plastic cladding and faux skid plates, the Avventura goes a step further and offers a tailgate mounted spare wheel. The WR-V is not only the tallest at 1601mm, it also has the longest wheelbase and is the most comfortable in terms of space that it has to offer.

Interiors and Features

The Elite i20 offers class-leading 6 airbags with the top variant. Safety is available at a premium in case of Fiat Avventura and the Active i20 that do not offer airbags and other features like ABS as standard. WR-V on the other hand, gets these as standard. WR-V offers the first-in-class sunroof, while it misses out the rear-ac vents that both the other cars offer, that also work well, and improve passenger comfort.

Diesel unit of 1.4 litre capacity puts out 90PS of power and 220Nm of torque, just like in case of the WR-V, diesel unit of the i20 Active comes coupled with a 6 speed transmission. The Avventura does not offer a petrol unit while diesel is of 1.3 litre capacity that put out a healthy 93PS of power and 209Nm of torque.

Verdict

There aren't any outright winners in the comparison, and with the choices as diverse as these, there's something for everyone. The starting price of the WR-V makes it extremely attractive and a competitor to reckon with. WR-V should ideally find lot of buyers as it retains the practicality of the Jazz and yet with its different face, manages to position itself as a car that also looks unique, unlike the other two which somewhat fail despite trying hard.
