And most major manufacturers have hopped onto that bandwagon and have at least or two products on sale to ensure they get their fair share of the lucrative pie.

The WR-V not only rivals fellow hatchback crossovers like the i20 Active and Etios Cross, but also the Maruti Vitara Brezza. How do they stack up against each other?

The upcoming Honda WRV shares its engines with the Honda Jazz. So, it gets a 1.5 L Diesel and a 1.2 L Petrol. Maruti offers the Vitara Brezza only with a diesel engine option. In terms of power output, the Brezza loses out to the WRV. However, the difference in performance in real world conditions won’t be as noticeable.

Honda WRV vs Maruti Vitara Brezza Comparison – Exterior Design

While the WRV is based on the Jazz, designers have made extensive changes to the hatchback’s exteriors. The only similarities the can be seen are in the side profile and the rear end. The nose is completely new and features a flatter, high set bonnet. There is body cladding all around and the ride height also witnesses a slight increase.

In contrast, the Maruti Vitara Brezza features a more conventional SUV design. While the exteriors aren’t very eye-catching, the work well and have gone down well with the Indian car buying lot. Most buyers would prefer the conventional SUV lines of the Brezza over the jacked up hatchback look of the WRV.

Unlike the exteriors, the dashboard of the WR-V is identical to that of the Jazz. The Jazz based crossover features the same design, steering wheel, instrument console, etc. Again, the dashboard design of the Vitara Brezza, much like its exteriors, is a bit conservative. That said, the quality levels are decent and everything is where you would want them to be. While the WR-V’s cabin is flashier, we still prefer the elegant dashboard design of the Vitara Brezza.
