2016 Honda HRV vs 2015 Nissan Juke
The Honda HRV was one of the earliest announced vehicles coming to the 2016 model year in the industry. Weve had months to speculate and get excited, and that excitement is only climbing. There arent any 2016 models to pit it against, but we thought wed start comparing it against some of the 2015 models that probably wont change much into the new model year. First up, the 2016 Honda HRV vs 2015 Nissan Juke, which is the compact crossover considered by many to be number one in the segment. We thought wed see just how it measured up to our new favorite compact.
Honda HRV Best-in-Class Specs
Lets start with fuel efficiency, which is one of the most important specifications in any automotive segment. While Honda hasnt officially released the fuel efficiency information on the 2016 HRV, the United States Environmental Protection Agency released their ratings back in January. While not a huge advantage, the HRV does take a bit of an edge over the Nissan Juke in fuel efficiency, as evidenced by the table above. The savings wont be astounding, but you will be spending a little bit less at gas stations annually.
But perhaps more importantly in the crossover market is interior space. Just because drivers want a smaller vehicle, doesnt mean they want the smallest amount of space inside. They still want their passengers to be comfortable and be able to fit plenty of cargo. The HRV has a huge advantage over the Juke in this regard. Passenger volume is trumped by 13 cubic feet, allowing for plenty of extra space to move around and be comfortable. As for cargo space, nearly 14 cubic feet more behind the back seats alone, and dropping that row keeps nearly the same advantage at just about 13 cubic feet more. Needless to say, both of these vehicles are small, but one is much bigger on the inside.
