Built in Italy, the Renegade is Jeep's first subcompact SUV. It features two four-cylinder engines: a 1.4-liter turbo and a 2.4-liter. Most versions will come with a nine-speed automatic, but it is neither smooth nor responsive. With it our 2.4-liter returned just 24 mpg overall.

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, and the Trailhawk version offers some off-road ability.
