Honda says that the WR-V’s top-spec VX variant makes up 80 per cent of its total sales in the country. The reason behind the popularity of the WR-V’s top variant could be the sunroof, a sought-after feature that might not be very practical for a country like India but often considered to be a premium offering.
The WRV’s 188mm of ground clearance could have also contributed to its sales, especially in the tier-II and tier-III cities, where roads are not the most well paved. Honda claims that 30 and 32 per cent of the WR-V’s total sales come from tier-II and tier-III cities respectively.
Honda says that the WR-V accounted for 28 per cent of the brand’s entire sales in FY-2017-18. However, it is not the best selling (second best) Honda in country, as the City leads the pack with average monthly sales of around 4,000 units against WR-V’s 3,500 units.

In its segment, the WR-V ranks third in the average monthly sales after the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon. Since the launch of the Nexon in September, the WR-V’s average monthly sales numbers have seen a decline of about 25 per cent.
