When it comes to compact crossovers, both the Honda HR-V and the Jeep Renegade are two of the best of them. Despite belonging in the same segment, both vehicles came out with different offerings. Today, we are going to explore on that so you will have a better idea on what car to buy.
For starters, the HR-V runs on a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that is mated to a CVT transmission. The engine generates a decent 170hp and 106ft-lbs of torque. Obviously, the HR-V is developed to be fuel economical. The vehicle also makes a great family car as it offers a comfortable cabin.
In detail, the HR-V is completed with tons of features such as air filtration, front air conditioning, audio controls on the steering wheel, cruise control, phone control and steering wheel adjustment.
Then there is the Jeep Renegade. On the outside, the Renegade comes with a gentle, sophisticated design that isn’t like other Jeep vehicles. The Renegade is truly stylish and it runs on a 1.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Despite having so much power to offer, the Renegade does feel underpowered when driven on the highway. Off the road however, the Renegade is a beast in every way. It comes completed with Jeep’s hallmark off-road technology that enables it to be a mountain climber, river crosser and also a dirt-trail warrior.
With that being said, it is pretty clear cut on which car to get. If fuel economy and comfort is the priority, then by all means, get the Honda HR-V. If adventure and off-road prowess is what you want, then there is the Jeep Renegade.
