Out of all the affordable subcompact SUVs on the market, the 2015 Jeep Renegade is considered as being the third by most reviewers out there. It is one of the best in the off-road SUVs two and quite in the middle of the pack when looking at the rankings of affordable SUVs that have 2 rows. We basically see a brand new 2015 Jeep Renegade that is quite versatile and brings in very good off-road capability, as you would expect, together with athletic handling and a smooth ride.

Driving

Standard options include manual transmission and a 4 cylinder engine. We do have access to a much larger 4 cylinders engine and automatic transmission if you want that included. Both of the engine options offer enough power. The only problem is that acceleration is not as great as you may want. Also, for some driving styles we are faced with automatic shifting that is a little slow.

The base engine brings in an EPA that is currently estimated at 24-31 miles per gallon in a city-highway setup. That is definitely typical in this class. The main selling point in driving the 2015 Jeep Renegade is stability when turning, low body lean and sharp handling. You can choose out of different four wheel drive systems, including driving modes for various terrain types. We cannot deny the great off-road capabilities that are offered. It is a main reason why people would want to buy the SUV.

Interior

The 2015 Jeep Renegade has a cabin that only includes high quality, premium materials. The front and back seats bring in spacious areas and you will surely feel comfortable. There is some limited visibility in the rear because of the thicker roof pillars but that is normally not a problem.

As standard features you get a USB port and an AUX input jack. The list of optional features is quite long, including heated steering wheel, dual zone CC, a touchscreen of 6.5 with infotainment, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a 9 speakers audio system, lane departure warning, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rechargeable flashlight and many others. Reviewers highlight the fact that the touchscreen and audio controls are pretty much straightforward. Physical controls are also really good. The only problem that we can highlight and that you will really care about is that we have less cargo space than with other class SUVs, with 50.8 cubic feet. Even so, we do have versatility and enough cargo size for most owners.

That is why you will want to look at it.
