Compare Jeep Renegade vs the Competition

See How the New Jeep Renegade Stacks Up Against the Hyundai Kona and Honda HR-V

If you're looking for an SUV that's easy to maneuver in Canon City, CO, while also being off-road capable, get the new Jeep Renegade. This small crossover has high ground clearance and available four-wheel drive that enables it to conquer rugged terrain and handle well in rough weather. The new Hyundai Kona and new Honda HR-V are also subcompact SUVs that are a breeze to navigate in the city. However, after a closer look at all three crossovers, we think Florence drivers will prefer the Renegade's power and capability over that of the Kona or the HR-V.

Off-Road Capability

Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade is one of the top SUVs in its class at going off the beaten path. Its 8.7 inches of ground clearance, multiple skid plates, and available four-wheel drive make it ideal for crawling through canyons near Pueblo West.

Hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona has only 6.7 inches of ground clearance. It also has available all-wheel drive, instead of a four-wheel drive option, so it can't handle driving through rocky hills or canyons very well.

Honda HR-V

The Honda HR-V offers a maximum of 7.4 inches of ground clearance with its Sport trim. Like the Kona it offers all-wheel drive, but no four-wheel drive option, like the Renegade has.

Engine Horsepower

Jeep Renegade

The new Jeep Renegade gives you a choice of two engines: a 180-horsepower four-cylinder motor that puts out 175 pound-feet of torque and a turbocharged 177-horsepower engine producing 210 pound-feet of torque. People in Salida who often pull boats or campers will appreciate that the Renegade can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona has a little less power than the Jeep Renegade, with a maximum of 175 horsepower. It also has much lower torque than the Renegade, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Honda HR-V

The Honda HR-V offers only one engine - a 147-horsepower four-cylinder motor. It can only tow a maximum of 1,100 pounds, which is only a little more than half of what the Renegade can tow.

Interior Comfort

Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade has surprisingly generous headroom and legroom up front for taller Penrose drivers. Its high driving position provides a commanding view of the road that most subcompact SUVs don't offer.

Hyundai Kona

Backseat passengers in the Jeep Renegade will be able to stretch out a lot more than in the Hyundai Kona, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Renegade also has greater front head- and legroom than the Kona.

Honda HR-V

Most adults will find enough headroom in the Honda HR-V's front seats, but it gets a bit tighter in the back because of the sloping roofline. Also, it can sometimes be hard to get comfortable in the HR-V's driver's seat.

Infotainment Features

Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade has one of the finest infotainment systems on the market, with straightforward menus and additional buttons and knobs that make it a breeze to use while driving. People in Canon City will like that it comes standard with Android Auto and Apple Carplay smartphone integration.

Hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona also has a user-friendly infotainment system with standard support for Apple Carplay and Android Auto. However, some of its touch-screen buttons are a bit small.

Honda HR-V

The Honda HR-V only comes with a 5-inch infotainment display and Bluetooth. Android Auto and Apple Carplay are only available as options in the HR-V.
