2023 Honda WR-V Launched in Thailand

The second-generation Honda WR-V has been formally launched in Thailand, following its global debut in Indonesia in November last year. WR-V (Winsome Runabout Vehicle) competes in the subcompact SUV segment and is positioned below the HR-V in Honda’s hierarchy of products.

Measuring 4,060 mm long, 1,780 mm wide, and 1,608 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,485 mm, the 2023 Honda WR-V in Thailand is offered in two variants– the SV priced at 799,000 baht (PKR 63.97 lac) and the top-spec RS that is available for 869,000 baht (PKR 69.57 lac).

Visually there is not much of a difference between the two variants apart from some minor cosmetic differences. For example, the SV has horizontally dashed grille inserts whereas the RS gets one with chrome pins. The SV variant also gets standard 16-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels while the RS has 17-inch dual-toned ones. The interior of the RS is mostly black, with traces of red in various locations. Meanwhile, the SV receives silver accents on the doors and dashboard.
