Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Most people should be able to find a decent driving position in the front of the Jeep Renegade, although they might not want to spend too much time behind the wheel because the seats are not particularly well padded or supportive. The driver is seated high up so they get a good view over the bonnet but the view out of the back is limited because of the wide pillars. The only way to get around that is to add a reversing camera, which is available as part of the Parking Pack provided you go for the Limited trim or above.

All versions come with an 8.4in infotainment touchscreen, which is responsive to inputs and has a handy row of shortcut buttons to get you directly to the menu you want. It also comes with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, so you can make full use of apps from your phone, such as Google Maps and Waze.

The Jeep Renegade's interior quality is several rungs below what you will find in the Mini Countryman and Nissan Qashqai. The chunky dials, passenger grab handle and coloured highlights around the air vents, gearlever and speaker in Trailhawk models all look good, but do not distract you from the masses of hard scratchy plastic used across the dashboard and door cards.
