The Jeep Renegade and the latest Honda HR-V have a lot of similarities. Both vehicles are popular and attractive to buyers. We will point out today though, that both the HR-V and the Renegade are actually developed for different things.
We will begin with the Jeep Renegade. The compact SUV is powered by a 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine together with a 6-speed automatic transmission. It can engage into 4WD and along with Jeep’s off-road features, is able to race on muddy terrains and climb mountains.
This is something that the Honda HR-V is lacking. The vehicle runs on a 1.5 L 4-cylinder engine which generates 170hp and 106ft-lbs of torque. It has a CVT transmission which is designed to keep fuel consumption as low as possible. Due to its practicality and being cheaper to run, the HR-V is aimed more for general daily use.
Saying that, it is now obvious that the Jeep Renegade and Honda HR-V have a lot of differences. We hope this information will make it easier for you when it comes to choosing between the two SUVs.
