2015 Honda HR-V vs Jeep Renegade: Same Segment, Different Purposes

Both the Honda HR-V and the Jeep Renegade are two of the latest compact SUVs in the market but they are built to cater different sectors of consumers. Today, we are going to explore deeper into this and help identify the right compact SUV for you.

Looking at the Honda HR-V, the vehicle can be described as a perfect SUV that is fit for general use. It is powered by 1.5L 4-cylinder engine mated to a CVT transmission. This develops 170hp and 106ft-lbs of torque. Also, the gearbox choice aids in returning better gas mileage.

In addition to that, the HR-V comes with air filtration, front air conditioning, audio controls on the steering wheel along with cruise control, phone control and steering wheel adjustments to ensure that comfort is not compromised for the sake of reliability.

The Jeep Renegade, on the other hand, runs on the 1.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It might not be a highway or traffic jam expert but the Renegade has a monstrous ability that is hiding behind its gentle looks.

To be specific, the Renegade is a 4WD vehicle that comes with Jeep’s hallmark off-road technology. This basically means that the Renegade can climb mountains and cross rivers with ease. On the general aspect of things, the Renegade is not as good as the Honda HR-V.
