2014 Honda CR-V vs. 2015 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda CR-V offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
The Honda CR-V requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda CR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda CR-V carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-V is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Honda CR-V, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Wrangler.

Drivetrain
The Honda CR-V has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-V has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
The Honda CR-V offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Honda CR-V, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Wrangler.

Warranty
The Honda CR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Wrangler.
