Introduction

What Car? says...

Jeep may have invented the SUV, but the Renegade is the American brand's first foray into the small SUV market.

Under the skin, it's closely related to sister brand Fiat's 500X, although you'd never know it because the Renegade has more ground clearance, Jeep's trademark grille and butch off-road looks – looks that should help the Renegade steal a piece of the small SUV pie thus far enjoyed by the Renault Captur, Mini Countryman and Suzuki Vitara.

In the UK, buyers have a choice of six engine variants. Petrol wise, there’s an entry-level 118bhp 1.0-litre unit, as well as 148bhp and 178bhp versions of a turbocharged 1.3-litre engine. The diesel line-up consists of a 118bhp 1.6-litre unit and a 2.0-litre engine in 138bhp and 169bhp.

Over the next few pages, we’ll let you know what the Renegade is like to drive, plus which trim and engine make the most sense. And, as always, visit our New Car Buying section to find some tempting discounts.
