What used Jeep Renegade 4x4 will I get for my budget?
Prices for an earlier Renegade start at around £7000 for a 2015 example with above-average mileage. Up the ante to between £10,000 and £12,000 and you’ll have your choice of good 2017 cars with average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from an independent or franchised dealership. Expect to pay £14,500 or more for a facelifted Renegade from late 2018 or early 2019; between £15,000 and £20,000 on good 2020 cars, and a little more for the 2021 model. Prices for the plug-in hybrid start from £25,000.

None can surpass the plug-in hybrid's 128.4mpg, but that would require regular charging and sparing use of the engine to achieve.
Under the later, tougher WLTP testing regime the 1.0 T3 averaged 44.1mpg, the 1.3 Turbo 4xe 141.2mpg and the 1.5 T4 49.5mpg.
We're concentrating on the engines that you could get before April 2017 (see car tax section), and the lowest CO2 emissions came from the 1.6 diesel with 115g/km. There's only a slight CO2 penalty for going for the 168bhp 2.0 diesel that emits 155g/km over the 150g/km emitted by the 138bhp 2.0.
The front-wheel-drive 1.4 puts out 140g/km, while the four-wheel-drive version puts out 160g/km.
Road tax (VED)
Tax will be based on CO2 emissions for cars registered before April 2017 and will be at the flat rate for those registered after that date. This is currently £155 a year. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here for further information.
Servicing will be more expensive than some rivals, but there are plenty of garages that will take work on since underneath the car are Fiat parts.
