Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

While a six-footers will be well sorted for head, shoulder and leg room in the front of the Jeep Renegade, limited rear leg room means adults might struggle for comfort on the narrow rear bench, which is better suited to two people than three (the Mini Countryman is far roomier). 

As with most small SUVs, it has a 60/40 split rear seat fitted as standard. A more flexible 40/20/40 arrangement is available with the Function Pack II on Limited or Trailhawk models.

The Function Pack II – called Function Pack I on Longitude models – also adds height adjustment to the boot floor, although if you add a full-size spare wheel that eats into the cargo-carrying capacity, that won't make much difference. Even without a spare and with the boot floor in its lowest position, storage isn't a patch on the Seat Arona or Ford Puma, which has a hidden well you can stand up a set of golf clubs in. The Jeep Renegade’s rear does at least have a uniform shape with good access.
