Honda WRV vs Hyundai i20 Active Comparison- Exterior Design

Even though the WRV is based on the Jazz, the Honda designers have made extensive changes to the hatchback’s exteriors. The only similarities that are noticeable are the side profile and the rear end. The nose is completely new and a high set bonnet gives the WRV the crossover look. Other design contributing to the crossover look are the plastic cladding,  faux skid plates, and high ground clearance.

The i20 and i20 Active do not look that different from each other. Other than the new bumpers and body cladding, most of the design is the same.

The Honda WR-V is a great vehicle for those looking for a hatchback crossover. But it might not be able to snatch buyers away from the more conventional compact SUVs such as the Vitara Brezza and the EcoSport.

Price – Much like the rest of Honda’s products, the WRV crossover is likely to cost slightly more than the i20 Active.
Design – Honda has done a great job by infusing SUV-like elements into the design of the Jazz. However, design is a matter of personal choice.  So it depends on the preferences of individual buyers.
Features – The WRV certainly offers more equipment in comparison with the i20 Active.
Specifications – Honda’s 1.5 L Diesel is definitely but slightly more powerful than the Hyundai’s 1.4 L Diesel. Petrol engines are evenly matched in terms of specifications.
