Get a sneak peek into Honda’s new WR-V with the exciting Field Explorer concept at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2024. Discover the stylish, high-tech features, and strong performance that make this SUV stand out. Join us on a journey into the world of Honda’s car evolution.
In the fast-moving car world, one brand that shines is Honda. The Japanese company is known for making cars that look good, drive well, and use the latest technology. The excitement is building up as we get ready to see the new Honda Field Explorer concept, giving us a glimpse of what’s next for the WR-V (called Elevate in India) at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2024.
The Changes in WR-V:
The WR-V, first seen in India and Brazil in 2017, has gone through some interesting changes. Starting from the Jazz premium hatchback, it has become a midsize SUV that people really like in Japan. The second version, shown in Indonesia in 2022, left fans in India waiting to see it.
Field Explorer Concept Revealed:
For Honda fans, there’s something special coming at the Tokyo Auto Salon. They’re going to show the Field Explorer concept next to the HONDA Accord e:HEV Sports Line. This concept is going to change how the outside of the WR-V looks, adding real Honda parts to make it look tougher. A black grille, a new roof rack, black wheels, and more black parts make it look strong and cool.
Inside the Field Explorer Concept:
Following the theme of “Honda DNA,” the Field Explorer concept shows us what makes the WR-V strong. The inside is all black, different from what’s in India. It matches the powerful engine under the hood. The 1.5L four-cylinder VTEC petrol engine makes 121 PS and 145 Nm of power, giving a fun driving experience with the smooth CVT transmission.
Size and Goals:
The new WR-V is not too big or too small, measuring 4,312 mm long, 1,790 mm wide, and 1,650 mm tall. It has a wheelbase of 2,650 mm, making it roomy but still easy to drive. With a turning radius of 5.2 meters, it can turn well, and with 220 mm of space under it, it can handle rough roads. The trunk can hold 458 litres of stuff. Honda plans to sell 3,000 of these every month in Japan.
Exciting Future for India:
While we’re excited about the Field Explorer concept, Honda has more surprises for India. The all-electric version of the Elevate is coming in 2026, showing that Honda cares about the environment and wants to make cars that use electricity.
At the big car show in Tokyo in 2024, the Honda Field Explorer concept is a sign of new ideas and style. With its tough outside, strong engine, and a look into what makes Honda cars special, it shows us what’s coming for the WR-V. We can’t wait to see it on the roads soon. Honda is not just making cars; they’re making experiences that go beyond normal. The journey into the future is just starting, and Honda is leading the way.
