Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2016 Jeep Renegade OVERVIEW

The subcompact crossover that can actually leave paved roads, the Renegade combines everyday drivability with some of the best off-road moves in its price class. It might be the smallest Jeep you can buy, but that doesn't stop the Renegade from upholding the family name.

What's New for 2016

For its second year on the market, the Renegade sees minor equipment revisions only.

Choosing Your Jeep Renegade

Although the Renegade has a short footprint, there's plenty of width to accommodate five passengers. You get 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space with a full crew aboard, and 50.8 cubic feet of it with the rear seat folded. These figures are slightly above average for the smallest class of crossover.

The standard 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder puts out 160 horsepower and comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission. If you want the available nine-speed automatic, you'll have to upgrade to the 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder. Either engine can be had with all-wheel drive in place of the standard front-drive setup. The system features a terrain selector for optimum traction in different driving conditions.

The Renegade comes in the same trims as other Jeep Crossovers, from the basic Sport to rugged Trailhawk:


Comes modestly equipped with power windows and locks, a four-speaker sound system, keyless entry, and 16-inch steel wheels. Note that air conditioning is not standard. For that, you have to spring for the Power and Air Group, which also includes cruise control and power heated mirrors. The Sound Group gets you a full-feature sound system with satellite radio and six speakers.


Gets the Sport's packages as standard, plus a rearview camera, automatic headlamps, a folding passenger seat, ambient interior lighting, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The exterior carries alloy wheels, roof rails, and body-color door handles and mirrors.


The larger engine and automatic transmission are standard here, along with a slew of comfort and convenience upgrades such as leather upholstery, heated front seats with driver power, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic wipers, remote start, and a household-style power outlet. You also get an expanded driver info display, dual exhaust tips, and 18-inch wheels.


Comes standard with an upgraded all-wheel drive package that includes low-range gearing, hill descent control, a raised suspension, tow hooks, underbody skid plates, and all-terrain tires on 17-inch wheels. Other equipment is similar to the Latitude.

All Renegades are eligible for My Sky, a pair of removable roof panels over the passenger compartment. You can add a power slide/tilt function to the front panel on all models except the sport.

Many of the Limited's extra features are available on Latitude and Trailhawk in smaller bundles. All three are available with a Safety and Security Group featuring blind spot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alerts, and an anti-theft system. There's also an Advanced Technology Group with lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, rear parking sensors, and forward collision alert with automatic braking.

CarsDirect Tip

The Sport carries a tempting base price, but keep in mind that you have to pay extra for necessities like air conditioning and cruise control. That makes the Latitude the best place to start in our view.
