Review

The iconic Jeep Wrangler is a car you buy with your heart rather than your head, unless you have a rugged future mapped out for it. It looks great and has enough standard equipment to match some more premium large SUVs, and its off-road prowess can’t be denied, either. However, on the road, it lags a long way behind rivals in just about every area.

Trim: Rubicon

As well as chunkier tyres, Rubicon adds locking front and rear differentials to give even more traction on slippery surfaces, as well as detachable anti-roll bars that allow even more suspension travel.

Engine: 2.2 Multijet

The 2.2-litre diesel has a reasonable amount of punch, getting the Wrangler up to motorway speeds without too much fuss, although the much lighter two-door version unsurprisingly feels a lot sprightlier than the four-door model. It's a lot quieter than the previous 2.8-litre diesel, although it still sounds gravelly even while cruising and transmits more than a few vibrations through the controls.
