An SUV Shootout with Honda Laura: Who Is Your Pick?

By 0 Permalink 0

Howdy Honda fans! If you love my Honda Laura shootout videos, then you’re in luck. I recently compared 2 of the most popular crossover SUV’s on the market today. The 2016 Honda HR-V LX versus the 2015 Jeep Renegade. As always, thank you to Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk for allowing us to take out the HR-V. A special thank you goes out to Herb Chambers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Danvers for allowing me to take out the Jeep. Be sure to watch my Youtube video to see how these two vehicles match up against each other.

Although the Jeep beats the Honda on power and acceleration, the Honda destroys the Renegade on terms of fuel efficiency and tech options. The HR-V is rugged, tough and perfect for off-roading, while the Renegade is more urban and sleek. The Honda HR-V was very comfortable to drive. It was peppy and had some oomph to its step! The Jeep was very rugged and strong, although bumpy to drive. I was surprised with how bright it was. There was a ton of visibility. Each of these vehicles are different in their own way. Do you prefer the more modern look packed with tech options or the boxy, off-roading type? Comment below and let me know your pick!
