Editor's Overview

Riding on the same platform as the Fiat 500X, the 2017 Jeep Renegade shares little else with its Italian stablemate. With ample ground clearance, an advanced 4-wheel-drive system (4WD) and big dose of Jeep styling, the Renegade is all Jeep, larger inside than the Mazda CX-3 and more off-road capable than the Honda HR-V.

Renegade, small vehicle with big character.

I have the sport model of the Jeep renegade and from my personal experience the renegade is great for a small family. It's got just enough room for my wife and three girls, but cargo space leaves something to be desired especially if you carry a stroller around like I do. Other than that though, the 2. 4 liter engine performs well enough but the automatic transmission does feel flimsy on occasion. When you accelerate a little too quickly you'll notice it lag behind when it should be shifting into higher gear. It has not broken yet though, and that is saying something coming from me. Takes tight turns well, handles well without feeling too top heavy, and the base package of tech inside is enough for me, but it does have significant upgrades available for those who prefer more.

An interesting detail is that it illuminates the area to the side of the vehicle you are turning when engaging your turn signal. It also has smart high beams that will auto off when an oncoming vehicle approaches.

I like this vehicle for many reasons and I will list some of them here: 1. Good fuel economy 2. Has that rugged Jeep off road feel even though it is a smaller vehicle. 3. It has a good range of safety and convenience features, including hill descent which keeps it coasting down hill at a slower rate as compared to many cars. 4. Spacious front cabin room. 5. Back seat area, even though it is a smaller vehicle, is ample for my 2 girls that still ride in car seats. 6. The rear storage is small, but more than enough to carry luggage and basic supplies. 7. For a 4 cylinder, it has good speed, but don't expect it to have a powerful takeoff (I did not need that anyway). 8. It has a nice 4wd setup that can be dialed in for different conditions like snow, mud or sand.

A decent SUV that offers city-friendly driving and plenty of features.

The Renegade offers what most other subcompact crossovers don’t—true off-road capability and a distinctly butch design. The littlest Jeep samples the company’s iconic Wrangler and wraps it in a more approachable package. Although both of its four-cylinder engines are wimpy, the Renegade does have a standard six-speed manual transmission and a robust all-wheel-drive system. Its rugged interior can be outfitted with a variety of Uconnect infotainment systems; Apple CarPlay and android auto are optional. While we’ve praised rivals such as the Kia Soul and the Mazda cx-3 for being fun to drive on the pavement, the Renegade has the same effect on the trails and provides a taste of the Jeep lifestyle.
