Honda cars India Limited has launched the popular BS6 WR-V in the Indian market. 2020 BS6 Honda WR-V will be one of the first few models from the Japanese carmaker to come with BS6 compliant engines. Honda has plonked the updated 1.2-liter petrol and 1.5-liter diesel engine under the hood of the new WR-V.
2020 BS6 Honda WR-V now puts out 90 PS and 110 Nm and 100 PS and 200 Nm in its petrol and diesel guise respectively. The transition from BS4 to BS6 has changed nothing in terms of the output of both engines and as before, both powertrains will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. However, there is no official word about the addition of the automatic gearbox to the new version of WR-V.
Mileage has seen a significant drop in BS6 petrol and diesel engines. Petrol is now rated 16.5 km/l (previous 17.5 km/l) and diesel is rated at 23.7 km/l (previous 25.5 km/l). The transition to BS6, as expected, has brought down the numbers of fuel economy. There is change in testing procedure of BS6 cars and they are inherently less fuel efficient because the trade off is to control the harmful gases in making it BS6 compliant from the BS4 version.
Honda has applied its advanced exhaust gas after-treatment system with NSC (NOx Storage Catalyst) and DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)to meet the challenging target of particulate matter (PM) and Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emission in case of diesel engines. Honda’s original Silver Thin Coated DPF (STC-DPF) enables reduction of PM combustion time by 40% compared to the conventional DPF.
