Current Model
Built in Italy, the subcompact Renegade looks enticingly cute but is bogged down by a nine-speed automatic that's neither smooth nor responsive. Fuel economy with the 2.4-liter was unimpressive at 24 mpg overall.
A 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is also available. Handling is uninspiring, and the ride is unremarkable. Vibrations while the engine is idling and a too-touchy brake pedal also mar the driving experience. The Trailhawk version offers a token amount of off-road capability. Chrysler's easy-to-use Uconnect infotainment system is one of the best in the business. Updates for 2021 include standard active safety features, including FCW and AEB, on all trims except for the Trailhawk.

Built in Italy, the Renegade is Jeep's first subcompact SUV. It offers traditional Jeep features such as some off-road ability and open-air driving via its large, removable sunroofs.
It offers two four-cylinder engines: a 1.4-liter turbo and a 2.4-liter. Most versions will come with a nine-speed automatic, but some front-wheel-drive models can get a six-speed manual. An off-road-worthy Trailhawk tops the range. Optional safety features include forward-collision and lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, and a backup camera. Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system is available.
