2016 Honda HR-V vs. 2015 Nissan Juke vs. 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Purchasing a new crossover can be challenging. There are plenty of different models to choose from all claiming to offer something different than the competition. At Honda of Chantilly, we’ve put together a 2016 Honda HR-V competitor comparison near Leesburg, VA to help you make the right decision for you when it comes to choosing a new crossover.

When comparing the 2016 Honda HR-V to the 2015 Nissan Juke and the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, it is clear which comes with more standard features. Some of these features are small conveniences that you might not notice until ther're gone. For example, the HR-V comes with floor mats, seatback storage, and cargo area tie-downs. The Nissan Juke doesn’t come with any of these features. Similarly, the HR-V offers underseat storage, something neither the Juke nor the Outlander offer.

The 2016 HR-V also offers more in terms of space. The minimum amount of cargo space in the HR-V is about 23.2 cubic-ft. The Outlander Sport will give you a little less room at 21.7 cubic-ft. of space. The Nissan Juke will give you the least amount of space at 10.5-cubic-ft. Similarly, the HR-V can’t be beaten when it comes to the maximum amount of cargo space at 58.8 cubic-ft.1 The Outlander Sport will give you 49.5 cubic-ft. and the Juke will give you 35.9 cubic-ft.

You and your passengers will feel more comfortable in the 2016 Honda HR-V given the great amount of passenger space it offers. Front passengers get up to 3.5-inches of headroom and rear passengers get an impressive 39.3 –inches of legroom. In the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport front passengers will get just a little less headroom at 39.4-inches, but rear passengers will only get 36.3-inches of legroom. In the Nissan Juke, the rear passengers will only get 32.1-inches of legroom.

One advantage the Honda HR-V has over the competition is that it comes with the unique second-row Magic Seats®. These seats allow you to configure the back three different ways to accommodate your cargo. Utility Mode gives you the maximum amount of space by folding down the rear seats. Long Mode gives you 8-feet of length when you fold down the front passenger seat. Finally, Tall Mode, will give you nearly 4-feet of vertical space behind the front seats for items that can’t lay on their sides. You won’t find seating like this in the 2015 Juke or 2015 Outlander Sport.

As you upgrade to higher trims, there are certain features that you’d expect to come standard with a new crossover. Once again, the Honda HR-V comes with more of these features than the competition.
