Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Jeep Wrangler, 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 Honda CR-V is somewhat more expensive 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
The Honda CR-V is a little narrower than the Jeep Wrangler, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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.
