2017 Honda HR-V vs. 2017 Jeep Renegade: Compare Cars

A burgeoning number of small crossover utility vehicles is giving buyers more options than every before. Two of the most popular smaller SUVs are likely to be the Honda HR-V and the Jeep Renegade. The HR-V is a smaller sibling to the immensely popular CR-V compact crossover, while the Renegade slots in below both the Liberty and Cherokee SUVs in the Jeep lineup.

They're very different vehicles, with different focuses. The Honda is perfectly suited to city and suburban use by couples or young families, with optional all-wheel drive offering the security of better traction on muddy athletic fields and unplowed roads. The Jeep can tick those boxes convincingly, but it also provides considerably more off-road ability, especially in the Trailhawk model with added equipment meant for that purpose.

TCC’s Bottom Line
Think of the 2017 Honda HR-V as a Fit with all-wheel drive and a little more headroom. It's not as fun as it could be, but it makes a lot of sense. The 2017 Jeep Renegade is the smallest Jeep you can buy, appealing both to commuters and off-roaders, but its design can outshine its performance.
