2018 Jeep Renegade vs 2018 Honda CR-V

Proudly Serving Pittsburgh, PA

Starting at approximately $18,500, the 2018 Jeep Renegade is an affordable SUV that offers great value for adventurous drivers. This Trail Rated model boasts class-leading attributes in the off-road department. The 2018 Honda CR-V is a mid-size crossover SUV that's a great option for families in suburbs and cities. Overall, the Renegade is more durable and versatile than this Honda model.

Off-Road Performance

Carrying the legendary Active Drive technology, the 2018 Jeep Renegade boasts amazing 4x4 capabilities. Depending on the demand for traction, the rear axle stays connected or disconnected to the drivetrain. This versatile mechanical feature ensures a smooth switch between 4WD and 2WD. The Trailhawk is the only trim that's fitted with the Active Drive Low technology, which is perfect for crawling on rocky surfaces. This drivetrain can achieve a maximum crawl ratio of 20:1. This Jeep offers the Selec-Terrain Traction Management that's tuned for common off-road conditions. For instance, the Sand Mode lets you confidently roll on a beach or desert. The Snow Mode gives you less reasons to worry during a heavy winter storm. Rolling down a steep gradient could be dangerous, so the Hill Descent Control is ready to make the necessary adjustments. This technology engages the brakes and other mechanical parts when the wheels start to accelerate at excessive rates. When you attempt to start the ignition system when the 2018 Renegade is parked on a hill, the Hill Start Assist deliberately creates a delay between the gear changes. This innovative feature essentially gives you enough time to move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator. Optional in the 2018 Honda CR-V, the Intelligent AWD is clearly beaten by the Active Drive 4x4 system. Additionally, the Selec-Terrain Management is superior to the CR-V's Intelligent Control System.

Handling

Standard in some of the 2018 Jeep Renegade trims, the six-speed manual transmission system has the C635 label. The nine-speed automatic transmission system carries the 948TE code in the brand's mechanical design. By contrast, the 2018 Honda CR-V has a continuously variable transmission system. Even though the dynamic CVT has the Sport Mode, you'll have minimal control of the gear settings. High-strength steel makes up 70 percent of the Renegade's durable body. Aluminum and magnesium are some other materials that reinforce the outer shell of this SUV. You won't find such robust metals in the frame of the 2018 Honda CR-V. When equipped with the KONI technology, this Jeep maintains desirable stability on rough roads. By monitoring the terrain, multiple sensors determine the optimum frequency of oscillations in the front and rear dampers. The variable stiffness of the suspension system mitigates the harsh effects of bumps and other protrusions from the road.

Exterior

As a Trail Rated model, the 2018 Jeep Renegade naturally has a durable exterior that's ready to withstand tough weather and rugged terrains. Painted in rear for optimum visibility, two front hooks and a single rear hook allow you to tow small trailers on challenging landscapes. The wheel wells of this compact SUV have cutouts that minimize the accumulation of mud, debris, snow, sleet and other materials. A gray front grille with seven vertical slots gives the 2018 Renegade a distinctive look. You can also equip this Jeep with deep-tinted glass to block out intense UV rays. A roof rack and capless fuel filler provide extra utility for road trips. Additionally, heated exterior mirrors and a front windshield de-icer keep you going in severe winter weather.
