Automatic gearbox option for the Honda WR-V

9th Jun 2020 8:00 am

Will Honda introduce the option of an automatic gearbox - either CVT or torque converter - on the WR-V?

I am impressed with the Honda WR-V’s performance even though it is underpowered. However, living in Mumbai, I am not in favour of using a stick shift. Are there any plans by Honda to bring in an automatic transmission version in the form of a CVT or torque converter, and not an AMT?

It is unlikely that Honda will bring an automatic version of the WR-V, as the model is likely to be replaced with another compact SUV sometime next year. Honda doesn’t favour AMTs and future compact Honda automatics will all have CVTs.
