In the world of subcompact SUVs, there’s certainly a lot of options to choose from. The Honda HR-V and Jeep Renegade are two of the most popular, and in this vehicle comparison, drivers from the Miami, Doral, and Hialeah areas will have the opportunity to learn how they compare.
Brought to you by Braman Honda in Miami, we’ll take a closer look at the design, performance, and technology of both vehicles to help you decide which one may be right for you.
Honda HR-V has been built using a variety of quality materials, including soft-touch surfaces. Front-seat passengers will enjoy the available leather trimmed seats and easy-access controls.
For cargo space, the Honda HR-V features 58.8 cubic feet of cargo volume, when the 60/40 split 2nd-Row Magic Seat® is folded completely flat. In this configuration, the HR-V can accommodate long and tall items, which is great if you’re taking a surfboard or umbrella to the beach.
Interior space isn’t necessarily a strong suit of the Jeep Renegade. With just 50.8 cubic feet of cargo room, space is already considerably more limited than in the competitor. Seeing as the in-floor storage that could have provided some additional room is only optional, you may have trouble fitting larger items. Other than storage, the rest of the Jeep Renegade design also seems to be limiting. For example, wide D-pillars by the back window are known to cause poor rear visibility. You won’t have such an issue with the streamlined rear design of the HR-V.

Gas prices always seem to be fluctuating these days, which makes fuel efficiency a big concern for many drivers.
The latest iteration of the Jeep Renegade has seen some noticeable improvements over past model years in this department. Its standard inline 4-cylinder engine maintains an EPA-estimated 31 MPG highway and 24 MPG city, which beats out many other Jeep vehicles.
However, for the Honda HR-V, due to the efficient Continuously Variable Transmission and Eco Assist™ feature, the HR-V maintains an EPA-estimated 34 MPG highway and 28 MPG city.1 At the pump, you’re bound to save more with this model.
Like most vehicles today, the 2019 Honda HR-V and the Jeep Renegade both share many of the same technology features. Bluetooth® streaming audio, hands-free calling, and helpful navigation are available in either model, but just how intuitive or user-friendly each system is will be up to you.
For instance, all the controls in the Honda HR-V have been strategically placed around the cockpit where you’d expect them to be. The Jeep Renegade, on the other hand, has so many buttons and knobs that it seems to be battling to find space. For example, you’ll find the push-button start awkwardly placed on the steering column.
The HR-V keeps things neat, tidy, and intuitive with its central touchscreen and driver information display behind the steering wheel. Here you can find the unique Maintenance Minder™ system, which lets you know when to schedule service and what needs to be done.
