  • The Honda HR-V earns an EPA estimate of up to 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway/31 mpg combined with a continuously variable transmission and front wheel drive, or up to 27 mpg city/31 mpg highway/29 mpg combined with all-wheel drive and CVT based on EPA estimates*.

It’s easy to see that if efficiency is your priority, then you’ll want to drive the Honda HR-V.

Cargo and Passenger Space

You’re shopping for a small crossover rather than a small car because you value interior space and versatility, so which one offers more? You can find out here:

  • The Nissan Juke is able to carry only 10.5 cubic feet of cargo with all seats in place and up to 35.9 cubic feet total with the second row folded down. Inside the Juke, you’ll find 86.7 cubic feet of passenger volume.
  • The front-wheel drive Honda HR-V is able to carry up to 58.8 cubic feet of luggage with the second row folded down, and up to 24.3 cubic feet – more than twice the measurement in the Juke – when all seats are in place. The HR-V also offers more passenger volume with up to 100.1 cubic feet.

Your passengers will certainly thank you if you choose the HR-V.
