Jeep Renegade

Price $27,695 – $38,840
Fuel consumption 7.8 – 11.2 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 45%(view ratings)
As the oddball in Jeep’s lineup of SUVs, the Renegade is a sub-compact model for those who want a taste of the Jeep life in a smaller, more urban-oriented package. Styling is quite unique, the interior is rather nice and trendy, while off-road performance is impressive for the segment. When it comes to power, the Renegade offers two choices—a naturally aspirated 2.4-litre four-cylinder or a turbocharged 1.3-litre unit.
