Initially shown in a sketch, the Honda WR-V has surfaced yet again, this time in a teaser photo showing a darkened view of the front end of the upcoming crossover.

The trapezoidal headlights can be seen in clearer detail here, with reflectors and L-shaped LED daytime running lights prominently visible. Also seen is the Honda Solid Wing Face bar above the grille. Set to make its debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil next month, the WR-V – which stands for Winsome Runabout Vehicle – is based on the Jazz, and is separate from the more upmarket HR-V.

Judging from the sketch released last month, it will share a significant amount of its design with the hatch, albeit with unique front and rear fascias that look more rugged. The interior should also be quite similar to the one in the Jazz, with the possible exception of a few minor trim changes.

The all-new WR-V will be introduced to Brazil and other countries in South America, where the SUV market is expanding. No mention of the rest of the world, yet.
