Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Jeep Renegade holds its value better than many rivals but also costs more to buy in the first place, and its service intervals are quite short (every 12 months or 9000 miles).

Fuel economy and emissions are merely average compared with many small SUV rivals, and the Trailhawk version of the plug-in hybrid has a higher benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax rate than most PHEVs. Even in its best 190 form, the 4xe is well beaten by the Renault Captur for electric-only range and CO2.

Overview

The Jeep Renegade offers distinctive styling and decent practicality, but most rivals make it feel agricultural

  • Plenty of standard equipment
  • Trailhawk has genuine off-road ability
  • Holds its value better than many rivals
  • Unsettled ride
  • Awful refinement
  • Comparatively expensive
