Both the Renegade and the HR-V offer a spacious interior for up to five passengers and high-tech features, even at the base trim. The Renegade's more affordable base MSRP means you get to take advantage of the sporty design and high-tech features without it costing an arm and a leg. Both the HR-V and Renegade have a standard first-row LCD screen and great-sounding audio system. Optional features include infotainment apps like voice-activated navigation, a rear-view camera, and smartphone connectivity.

When it comes to performance, the Renegade races ahead of the HR-V. The lower price comes with a slightly smaller engine under the hood of the Jeep Renegade. However, the 1.4-liter I-4 engine produces more horsepower and torque, meaning that the Renegade is more fun to drive and offers a more responsive drive style. Both crossovers have front-wheel drive and a manual transmission at the base trim, but the Renegade has four-wheel drive and an automatic transmission available at higher trim levels, making it possible to add even more confidence to the already-sporty Renegade.
