As car manufacturers are producing more compact SUVs and crossovers, consumers have more choice and options than ever before. Three of the most popular small-sized SUVs are the Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-5 and the Honda HR-V. Take a ride with us as we set these three against one another on a motorized face off, while we check out the styling, safety features and a few off-road characteristics of each.
We expect SUVs to suit off-road driving with all-wheel drive for better traction on muddy terrain or untarred roads. The Jeep Renegade offers a higher level of driving pleasure that meet more off-road abilities and in comfortable city driving.
Visually, the 2017 Jeep Renegade design is full of character. Its taillights have a unique X-design and it’s the only one among the Mazda CX-5 and Honda HR-V to offer removable roof panels. The Honda HR-V boasts the brand’s usual styling while the Mazda CX-5 features a new “Kodo” design language which is simple, sporty styling.
The Jeep Renegade offers seven airbags as standard, along with a rearview camera, with further available safety features being: forward-collision warning plus with automatic braking, lane-departure warning and correction, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Honda HR-V comes standard with a rearview camera and tire pressure monitors, along with the usual traction systems and airbags, and the convenient sideview LaneWatch camera is an option.
