2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited vs. 2014 Honda CR-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Honda CR-V, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as you will with the Honda CR-V, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is somewhat more expensive than the Honda CR-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much higher than that for the Honda CR-V.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much wider than the Honda CR-V, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which is slightly longer than the Honda CR-V.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda CR-V.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited greatly out-muscles the Honda CR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Honda CR-V. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as you will in the Honda CR-V.

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