What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For A design icon, and superb off the road

Against It's uncomfortable, unrefined and tricky in the wet

Verdict It has a rough and ready charm, but it’s too compromised for mostly on-road use

Go for… 4.0 Sport

Avoid… 2.5 Sport

Jeep Wrangler 4x4
  • 1. It's a very capable off-roader, but it's tricky getting into the back and the boot is tiny
  • 2. Insurance will be dear, with our favourite model, the 4.0 Sport, in group 14
  • 3. Routine maintenance costs match those for larger cars, such as the Land Rover Discovery - not good
  • 4. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the suspension needs regular work
  • 5. Warranty Direct tell us that the steering components are prone to wear
