The HR-V they compared was the less fuel efficient standard transmission.
I brought up the compare of the CR-V, HR-V, and Nissan rogue.
It's amazing that HR-V holds it's own with many specs to the larger SUV's, and even beats them in several categories.
We have 2 teenagers (13 and 16), and that back seat is great for adults.

These ratings are nice but confusing. For example, look at the numeric ratings in each of the above categories: how does the HRV end up #1 when by their own category rankings the #2 car out scores it?

Confuzled.
Understand your confusion. I have always noticed US News as being wonky in their listings.


So a question for those who want an HR-V. Are you really just 3 tenths of a point from choosing the Renegade instead?

For me, not even close. A car has to meet a bare minimum expected reliability before the other considerations even come into play, and Renegade falls far short of that.

I mean, I love my HRV and all, but isn't if kind of fair to say that it only really won here because it doesn't have averages in on Reliability and Safety yet? It's just too new to have these numbers, and while they may come out to be perfect scores, they weren't even factored in compared to other cars. It could even by total 0's, we just don't know yet.

I'd call this imperfect science and analysis at best

Trax: needs a better looking interior, more power.

Encore : same as Trax, but with better interior at too high a price.

Renegade: needs better gas mileage and reliability suspect:

HRV; Needs more power .

HRV best in a weak field. Every one of these cars has at least one glaring fault.

May be a crowded field, but wide open for a superior product.

That they rated the HRV interior better than than the Encore totally blows the credibility of the raters unless they are talking cargo utility only.
Why was the performance of the Buick rated significantly higher than the Trax. Both are dogs but equal dogs.

Shouldn't speak for others but will anyway.
CRV, CX-5 Rav4,Escape. Forester, Rogue, and maybe the upcoming Tuscon offer nice interiors, a reasonably quite ride, good utility and willing engines. I think a lot us would be happy with slightly shrunken versions of those cars for better handling, parking and fuel economy. The car companies seem incapable of shrinking them without introducing extraneous unnecessary flaws in packaging, power,interior quality. Its no wonder that would-be HRV buyers are not defecting to buy another car in its class, but instead are being forced to buy a bigger car than they want just to get the quality they want. The car makers seem to think that anybody choosing small is not willing pay for quality and performance. I think for many of of us that is wrong and frustrating.

No need to apologize as you had already called out the corresponding headings in your initial message had anyone else looked clearly. ;)

Simply attach as you did, then go to that message, view the image, and right click. Select Copy Image Location. Then paste into a new message after selecting the Insert Image icon.

BTW, I am not surprised those that have "since left and lingering" and those that have made it clear that do not like the HRV, have a viewpoint on this thread that contradicts the ratings. No surprise there now is there. ;)

ENJOY!!!


Sorry, the headings are CR-V, HR-V, Rogue

HRV4ME, how do you embed the images for us novices ?

I'm surprised the Renegade is ranked second since it hasn't had the smoothest launch. Software issues have created delays for many and its not very fuel efficient either.

The other two pictures don't show up on my computer , or my smart phone, so no headings can be seen.


Actually what is really surprising is that you chose the shakiest of rating systems to tout the virtue of the HR-V based only on the fact that it has the HR-V at #1 .


Would you care to answer my previous question? Would you just as likely choose the Renegade being that it is only 3 tenths of a point behind the HR-V? The Renegade must be pretty fantastic , eh?

How the Encore got on a list of affordable cars is strange, unless the definition of affordable is 30K. To me it would be anything around 20K.

And its a crime that the media is giving glowing reviews to the Jeep Renegade and not reporting on the massive software problems. Anyone thinking about that car must really do a Google search before buying.
